“My wife has been coming here for about 5 months. Although I don’t “participate” in the program, simply eating and exercising with my wife and doing nothing else, I too have lost 31 lbs. She has lost a lot more than me, but thanks to her and the program, I am skinnier, healthier and feel better. Thank you Dr. Schiff. Sam Rubert, Weston, FL
“My cholesterol was always teetering around 200. Ever since Dr. Schiff put me on a regime – I’m at 133!!” Denise C., Pembroke Pines, FL
“I started the program three weeks ago and have lost 17 pounds and I stopped taking my blood pressure meds and feel great. My body fat was 33% and I’m down to 24.7%. I am amazed at how this program is working. I’m “Living It!”. Michael C, Lauderhill, FL
“I started the doctor’s supervised program 5 weeks ago. Today I’m down 17 lbs. My blood pressure is down from 140/90 to 100/60. I feel better than I have in years! At age 63, I had given up on being a “normal” weight. But HERE I AM! Getting better every day. Thanks Cardiomender!!” P.R., Dania, FL
“It is so wonderful to improve my health by losing weight on CardioMender, but it is also great to get compliments from everyone from being able to wear clothing that I thought I would never wear again (Jeans!). I am so grateful that at my age I am able to look so much younger and be so much healthier.”
Bernice B., Miami
I came to CardiomenderMD in March of 2012 after two years of hearing that I was Pre-diabetic, hypertensive and having several episodes of heart scares. The scariest one, in January 2012, was while flying from NY to Florida. It was frightening for my husband, other travelers and was embarrassing for me. I had no faith that the visit to this doctor would be any different from the internists and cardiologists I had seen previously. I would be poked and tested and told the same things I had already heard. Thankfully, I was wrong!!Dr. Schiff gave me information that I had heard before but took the time to make sure that I understood what he was saying. In these days of “get ’em in and get ’em out” medical care, I was relieved and I listened. I started the Program that day and after three months began to see quite a change in my body. Not just on the outside but on the inside. My internist took me off one of the two high-blood pressure meds I had been taking for 4 years. He said, “whatever you’re doing, it’s working”. I continued to change my lifestyle and focused on what my body was telling me. I spent this January trip thankful that I was not worried about my heart.
I didn’t come to CardiomenderMD to lose weight, I came to save my life. Dr. Schiff and his caring staff have helped me do both! Thank you!

“Thank you all for changing my life around for the better. Since I lost 40 lbs. with your wonderful program, I no longer need to take any blood pressure medication, and have so much energy.
All the best, W.B.” Southwest Ranches
“No more CPAP Machine. I’ve been using the sleeping machine for the past 10 years. Now I’m free!” Mireille B, Miramar (She’s only been on the program for 4 weeks)
I am 64 years old. I have been significantly over weight (255 lbs) for over 15 years resulting in high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and chronic back and leg pain. I was unable to get motivated to loos the weight. Because of my back pain, I was unable to exercise which would help me to lose weight. I was talking to a friend who had just lost over 55 lbs under a program offered by his cardiologist Barry Schiff. He was advised by Schiff that if he did not lose a significant amount of weight, he would be on medication for his diabetes the remainder of his life. Because of my friend’s success on Dr. Schiff’s program, I enrolled in the program. I lost 12 lbs the first week, and 6 pounds the second week. After being on the program for 3 months, i lost almost 60 lbs, and I went from wearing a 46 in pant, to a 36 in. pants. The program is easy to follow, and the excess weight just fell off. I started the program at 255 lbs, and I currently weigh 194 lbs. I look and feel iike a new man. I receive compliments from my friends about my new body all the time. I an still losing weight, and plan to reach my target weight of 175 lbs soom. The only negative factor with the program is that I need to renew my wardrobe. This is not a major problem. I strongly recommend anyone who wants to lost weight to enroll in Dr. Schiff’s program.
Robert F, Davie
I started seeing Dr. Schiff on April 4, 2012. At that time my cholesterol was high. I was close to becoming a diabetic from stress eating junk food, my blood pressure was high , and my thyroid was not working properly. I weighed 138 lbs and had never been able to lose weight and keep it off. Today, I started maintenance – I had lost 23 pounds and this week another 2 pounds for a total of 25 lbs!

There is no magic bullet….
I walked into Dr. Schiff’s office significantly over weight. I suffered from gastric reflux, my joints ached, my blood pressure was elevated, and my energy level was low. At 56 I had “hit the wall” and knew something had to change. Dr. Schiff appealed to the intellectual side of my brain and explained the scientific components of weight loss, and how it applied to his program. Not just eat this, take that but how and why I had reached this point. For me that made sense. Now, I am not stupid… just fat. I knew how I reached this all time high… and I was ready to make the change.
After one month and 19.6 pounds I feel that change is starting to take place. I no longer have the gastric reflux, my blood pressure is coming down, and my energy level has increased.
Now I have a way to go, so complacency is not an option. It is literally “One day at a time.” But I am grateful for Dr. Schiff’s no nonsense approach and look forward to working with this dedicated group of professionals.
Cindy A, Pembroke Pines
Dr. Schiff recommended that I start taking CardioMender’s Edge for my rising cholesterol, and in 9 months my cholesterol dropped from 246 to 195, and the only change I made was to add two CardioMender’s Edge twice a day. I am thrilled with the results!
BJS – Weston, FL
No one was more leery than me when I walked in, in January, to hear about a “new” diet program. After trying every diet on the market – Cookies, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, the Beverly Hills Fruit Diet, HCG, Atkins… on and on, I had lost hope of being successful at 63 years old. I was resigned to being “fat” “fat” “fat”. Here it is, several months later – down 35 pounds and many inches!!! My closet has pants size 10, 12, 14 & 16. My size 10’s are too large – so this is my NEW problem! I look and feel 10 years younger!!
Michele C. from Plantation
“Dr. Schiff’s weight loss program was perfect for me because it was fast, effective, and did not make me feel as if I was sacrificing to reach my goal. I lost 35 pounds and over 10% body fat in about 3 months. Every cost, including visits, supplements and vitamin shots was paid for by my company’s Flexible Spending Account as they are all medical related. I highly recommend the program to anyone wishing to change their life. PS The office staff makes coming in a pleasure.” Adam F. from Weston
“The [shirataki] rice is great! I made a fried rice of sorts with rice, shrimp, thin green beans, celery and a beaten egg. Added a dash of fresh horseradish and little splash of low-sodium soy sauce to the skillet prior to serving. Yum, yum! Thanks for introducing the product.” Pat from Pembroke Pines (We now carry Shirataki rice and noodle for your convenience)
“Dr. Barry Schiff,
After years as my cardiologist and all the suggestions that I lose weight it dawned on me that you have told me this for my own good. Finally, I came to the realization that the time is now. After my last weigh in at your cardiology office I knew it was time. Now at age sixty six your program has proven to me that even a weight loss failure like me can do it and the enjoy the new found happiness of real weight loss. When people see me now they say wow, how did you do it and I tell them it has been a simple life style change with a sincere desire to lose weight, get healthy and feel great. Dr. Schiff, your staff is marvelous, they show sincere caring about my success and make it a rewarding pleasant experience each week. I get calls from the friends and relatives that I have referred to University Wellness thanking me for recommending your program. I must mention that my family is very proud that I finally took the step with your program. I feel confident that you monitor the progress of your patients so thoroughly and with genuine concern. Thank you Dr schiff!’ Ara K. from Pembroke Pines
Just a short note to tell you and your staff how much I appreciate your guidance and support in my weight loss endeavor. Since joining the program, I am down 37 lbs and have dropped my blood pressure some 20 points. I feel better and have dropped 3 pants sizes in 10 weeks.
Thank you again and I look forward to reaching my weight loss goal of 50 lbs.”
Charlie S. from South West Ranches
The only word that comes to me regarding your program is Unbelievable! Not only have I lost so much weight in such a short time, but [I have] the great feeling of being full of energy and so healthy that I have not felt in a long time.
Thank you and all your staff”
Daniel B. from Weston
“I like the way I feel. This program has taught me how to eat. I’m not starving and have no headaches. I lost 10 lbs in just 5 days!” Elizabeth O. Pembroke Pines
“I am totally shocked! 8 lbs in one week! Dr. Schiff is Awesome!” J.A. Davie
“Each day I get older but feel younger. What a great feeling!….. I am now off all my diabetes meds that I had been on for years.” J. P. from Cooper City
“I’ve lost 10.5 lbs in my first week. I was extremely happy. Program is easy to follow. I’m feeling great. Recommend you to try!!” Janet H., Pembroke Pines
1) “This program gave me miraculous results. In 3 months I’ve lost 32 lbs- easier than other weight loss attempts. Yesterday I weighed the same exact amount as when I started the Police Academy 25 years ago!!”
2) “It’s been 6 months since I’ve lost 40 lbs and feeling great! I weigh the same and eat whatever I want- because I changed the way I eat. This is the kind of weight loss program I needed, something I can live with and learn how to eat the right way. On other programs -injections, the pills, the cookies, etc. will help you lose weight but you can’t do that forever. This one is a way to change your lifestyle, feel better and be healthier. I wish I’d done this a long time ago”
J. H. from Pembroke Pines
“Not only have I lost pounds but I have lost inches in my thighs” JN-Davie
“I’m so excited I can shop at a real store! I’ve lost 53 lbs in less than 6 months” Jean R. Ft. Lauderdale
“My first week on the program- I lost 6 lbs. I did not take any pills, was never hungry, no cravings and felt great. I can’t believe it myself. The program really works and to me the best part is that I’m doing it the natural way-NO PILLS!” E.T. from Miami Lakes
“I came here 3 weeks ago feeling miserable. I love food, so I eat all the time and the wrong foods. I did the HCG diet in Nov. 2010 and lost 30 lbs and gained it all back in 4/5 months I heard about you through Dr. Cohen and finally made it here. I have been on the program for 3 weeks now and I feel like “me” again. For the first time (which is sad) I am learning the “right” way to eat I am never hungry, I feel satisfied and I feel AMAZING. So far I have lost 12 lbs and 33 to go or until I reach size 8. Thank you so much for having this program and the support of your “OUTSTANDING STAFF” When I walk in, I am greeted with a smile and everyone is so friendly, you feel like a part of the family when you are there and they do it to every customer/patient that walks thru. Thank you again for all you do.”
Tina K from Pembroke Pines
“I have been a diabetic since 2000 and have been on insulin for the past 6 years. After two weeks on Dr. Schiff’s Program at the University Wellness & Weight Loss Center I have been insulin free! This program truly works!!” Roy D., Tamarac
“I am off my insulin and lost another 5 lbs this week. I eat regular foods and go to restaurants several times a week” T. K. from Pembroke Pines
“I love coming here. The office is great, I love Dr. Schiff!” – Lost 16 lbs in 6 weeks” Renee G. Cooper City
“From the moment my husband and I walked into the office, we were greeted with friendly faces. Three months later my husband and I have lost a combination weight loss of 85lbs. It is clear the program works and works well with all types of weight issues.
My husband’s medicines prescribed by his cardiologist have been drastically cut as the pounds have come off. Exercise only helps the program work and provides more energy that you have ever had.
Each and every person who works at the Wellness Center contributes to the positive feelings you get as you come each week. The medical assistants of Dr. Schiff are all very qualified to assist you with the program and discuss any issues you may have during that week. Dr. Schiff is always available if you need to talk to him about anything regarding the program or any specific problems that have come up during the week.
I recommend this program to all people who are serious about losing weight.”
Sharon G., Davie
“Never thought I could do it! I love food!!! After 2 weeks I went off my diabetic meds and now after 5 weeks, my A1C is normal and so are my cholesterol levels” Reva R. from Aventura
“I have been on the program for 15 weeks and so far I have lost a total of 48 lbs!! (6 lbs. to go to reach my goal)! I have never had a program work as well as this one has for me; and believe me, I have tried them all! Not only have I lost weight but it is incredible the inches that I have lost! The support you get from Dr. Schiff and his staff is truly amazing and they are there with you and for you every step of the way. I highly recommend this program to anyone who needs to lose weight and be healthy!” Nina D., Hollywood
“When I started this program, I was taking a high blood pressure pill daily (benazipil). After 7 days on the program I stopped taking the high blood pressure pill and blood pressure is better today than when I was taking the pill” O.K. from Pembroke Pines
“My clothes are very loose. I feel great, not hungry and with a lot of energy. My waist went from size 31 to 27. I’ve lost 18.8 in 6 weeks.” Patricia A., Aventura
“I’ve lost 19.3 lbs and that’s more than I’ve ever been able to lose in my life” K.A. from Miami
“What more can I say but thank you.
After 16 weeks of Dr. Barry Schiff’s Wellness Program I have lost a total of 57 pounds. I am no longer on blood pressure medication, my cholesterol is down 106 points from 246 to 140. My blood pressure is now normal, no longer pre-diabetic. I no longer suffer from acid reflux and sleep apnea. My wife and I once again sleep in the same bed because I no longer snore. In addition to feeling healthier and being happy my whole attitude towards life has changed for the positive.
Thank you for introducing me to the most comprehensive, healthiest and easiest weight loss program that I have ever been on.”
Joe M., South West Ranches
“After many attempts to lose the weight I was told would COULD shorten my life at some point as I got older, University Wellness & Weight Loss [now CardioMender, MD Weight Loss Specialists] is the only program that took the necessary weight off (at least to present) and seems to KEEP it off. My clothes are all much looser and I am now searching my “what if” wardrobe-you know the one you keep IF you lose that weight you’re supposed to. I have lost 31 lbs so far and am looking forward to reaching my target (which I last saw some 30 years ago), Thanks, University Wellness & Weight Loss.” Alan S from Fort Lauderdale
“THE PROGRAM WORKS!
I became a patient of the center just before Thanksgiving 2009. WOW, what a perfect time to start on a new lifestyle – smack in the middle of holiday season and a scheduled family vacation – a cruise!
I weighed more than I had ever weighed and it was time to do something about it. My wife, a physician in Plantation had seen wonderful results from some of her patients and suggested that I see Dr. Schiff. I made the call and set up an appointment.
The staff is engaging, helpful and so supportive. The medical staff is even better!
I’m down 33 pounds in just 2 months. I feel healthier and actually lighter. I’m less tired and have more energy than before. Now would be a good time to apply for life insurance. I’d be on the charts and less of a risk!
The program is easy to follow and simple. If I can do it anyone can.
Cheers to Dr. Schiff for taking the leap and opening the Center. His energy and enthusiasm is contagious. A true advocate for weight loss. I can not wait until I reach my goal weight and begin the next stage of the program.”
Barry S. from Plantation
“The Relora Complex has greatly helped me with night time cravings, especially the sweets and carbs cravings. I recommend this product without hesitations” A.S. from Pembroke Pines
“Dr. Schiff has brought my 39 year long war with obesity to a triumphal end. From the time I was 17, I have tried many diets and the only success I have had was to gain even more weight. One Sunday, a friend at church asked if I remembered her cousin. I said “Yes.” She told me her cousin had lost over 100 pounds with Dr. Schiff’s program. Immediately I called her cousin and listened to her story. Of course it was similar to my own- inability to resist foods such as bread, ice cream, chocolate, candy, cake, pie, etc. As I listened to her success story I knew that what she was doing was what I needed to do. I called Dr. Schiff’s office 2 days before Christmas and he personally called me back and spoke to me for more than one hour. I was impressed. I was even more impressed when I was able to lose 11 pounds the first week of the program. That was 107 pounds ago. Every time I go clothing shopping (frequently, these days), I end up making 3 or more referrals to Dr. Schiff! Thank you, Dr. Schiff and the entire staff at
CardioMender.” Barbara B. from Hollywood
“I was desperate to lose weight when I came to University Weight Loss Center. I had been trying to lose for 8 months at my fitness center but had only lost a few inches and no pounds. It was obvious to me that I needed a very structured dietary program where I would have to do very little planning- just follow directions. I am thrilled to say that since April 29, 2009, I have lost 57 pounds plus 11 inches in the waist alone! My heartfelt thanks to the doctor and staff of University Weight Loss!” Bernice B. from Miami
“The night of my consultation with Dr. Schiff and his staff was the turning point for me. I talked with Dr. Schiff about my situation and never once did I feel like I was being judged for the way I looked or the shape I was in. The staff made me feel as though I had joined a special and extraordinary family.
I am no longer on any prescription medicine, my blood work is fantastic, the acid reflux is under control, menopause symptoms are gone and the arthritis still hurts but not like it used to and I have been able to use ibuprofen to treat that pain. I am able to exercise now and my family is now trying to keep up with me.
I can’t thank Dr. Schiff and his staff enough for all of the help, love and encouragement they have given me for the last 7 months and I look forward to living a long and healthy life.” Cindy W. from Cooper City
“My 1st week went very well. There is so much food and I am NOT hungry! I didn’t even take the appetite suppressant and I lost 11.4 lbs in 6 days. My husband didn’t join the program but ate as I did and he lost 13 lbs!! We are both very happy!“ Erin F, Palm Beach
“I went on vacation to Hollywood beach, I spent a week and stuck to the plan . I enjoyed the vacation very much and did not struggle at all sticking to the plan was very easy. And I lost 5 1/2 pounds. I’m very happy and satisfied with this program. It really works.” Esperanza T, Miami Lakes
“Dr. Schiff and his entire staff are top notch. From the first day I joined University Wellness and Weight Loss, I knew that I finally found THE place for my weight loss. I was right. I lost in only 2 1/2 months 28 pounds. Now, at 3 months, I am down 30 1/2 pounds. I started as a size 10 and I am now a loose fitting size 6.
I am 47 years old and I now weigh what I did 20 years ago! I started at 159 pounds and I am today 128.5 pounds. I not only lost weight, but I have regained back my figure. I have curves again! My son is getting married in 3 months and I will not only feel proud walking with him and my husband down the aisle, but I know that I will look fantastic in my gown!
I have learned to eat smart, healthy and proper portions. I can actually go out for dinner with my husband and friends, and not get tempted to eat those certain foods that are not part of my new way of life. I have tried several diets over the years. There is NO other diet program out there as GREAT. Dr. Schiff and his phenomenal staff will be there for you for help and support.” Geri B., Hollywood, FL
“Since I have started the program I have been consistent in my weight loss. I met my goal weight and am very happy in my discipline and desire to eat well. I am thankful to Dr. Schiff and his staff for their care and attentiveness. I feel like a brand new person.” Helen P, Miami
“I’ve had experience with a couple of other weight-loss regimens in times past and I always felt like the people running the programs had a loose grasp of pseudo weight-loss science and a firm command of hyperbole. However, Dr. Schiff and the staff at the University Wellness Center are running a program based in research and science and know their material. I’ve not had difficulty adhering to the program and it’s working. So far I’m down 72 lbs., I feel great, and am confident of reaching my goal.” Cory F. from Miami
“I’ve lost 15.7 lbs in 2 weeks, I thought I would be struggling but with the right mind anything is possible” J. D. from Hialeah
“I was on your program for 5 months and lost 35 lbs. I then tried ‘my own’ program and gained 16. I’m back on your program and down 6 lbs in 2 weeks. This time I’m staying on your program. It’s painfully obvious which one works!” J.G., Delray Beach
“Several months ago, nearly 60 pounds heavier, with medical issues of high cholesterol, abnormal liver functions as a result of Hepatitis C and shortness of breath, I knew I had to do something or suffer the consequences…
The answer was and is the University Wellness & Weight Loss Center, now CardioMender MD Weight Loss, with Dr. Barry Schiff, Medical Director.
Weekly weigh-ins, a controlled “lifestyle” change of eating habits, positive re-enforcement from medical staff, family and friends, have resulted in a “new me”…..
Before enrolling in the program, I could barely walk up the ramp to the top level of ” Landshark Stadium” to watch the Dolphin games – now I start my morning walking between 4-5 miles a day on Hollywood Beach – everyday but Sunday.
I wore a XXL shirt (getting tight) and had 46 inch waist .. Now I wear an XL shirt and just put on a pair of size 38 jeans.
I sleep better now than in years. For the first time in over 15 years, my liver functions are normal and I have stopped taking medicine to control my cholesterol.
I am not finished with this program, but I am “in control of my life” and it sure feels good!!!!!! “
Jay M. K., Davie
“Even with the help of a nutritionist who created weekly menus for me, tailored to my personal, specific needs, I never lost weight as consistently and to the extent that I have with Dr. Schiff. It’s not a hands off program… It takes focus and intention, but following the plan is not only guaranteed success, but it’s an education that changes the way you think and the way you eat for good! I am healthier than I have been in over a decade and thrilled with the way I look!” Jennifer A., Davie
“Over the past 20 years I’ve tried just about every “diet” out there. I’ve tried everything from the pre-packaged food diets to starving myself. Although I often lost a few pounds, I would always put the weight right back on. Whenever I was on a diet I couldn’t wait to get off of it. Dr. Schiff’s program has been a godsend. It is truly a lifestyle adjustment, not a diet. In a little over 3 months I’ve lost close to 50 pounds. I feel like I am healthier than I have been in years, I have a lot more energy and I’m never hungry. I am so thankful to have found program that really works.” Jim G., Parkland
“I have been a patient of Dr. Schiff for many years and he has always been on top of me to change my lifestyle. After years of dieting, and believe me I tried them all, I realized I had to do something different. I even considered bariatric surgery. I knew that I could not “diet” anymore. I was embarrassed to go see Dr. Schiff every 6 months and telling him I failed again, so reluctantly at my wife’s insistence I decided to get on the plan. It has become very clear to me what he meant all these years about changing my lifestyle. You see, a diet is a temporary solution for a temporary outcome. Long story short, I started on April 15th 2009 and as of today, mid September, I have lost 51 lbs. But better yet, I feel great. I can now dress with nice looking clothes, my wife says she is “VERY HAPPY,” my overall health #”s are fantastic and it has been a very easy journey. In conclusion, if you want to go on a diet, this is not the plan for you; but if you truly want to change your life!!!! See my friend Dr. Schiff.” Jose S., Miami Lakes
“I’ve lost 17 lbs so far I feel great and it’s painless! The positive attitude of EVERYONE in the office is a great motivator.” Julie M. from Pembroke Pines
“I’ve been a cardiology patient of Dr. Schiff’s for the past several years. After talking to him about weight loss I decided to try the Wellness Center. Having dieted many times before, I was skeptical. In the past three months I have dropped 34 pounds. The best part is my cholesterol level dropped more than 50 points, blood pressure dropped 20 points, triglycerides dropped substantially, and I feel great! The staff is awesome and the program really works. I would highly recommend it as I already have to several friends. They have all experienced results similar to mine.” John G., Delray Beach
“I used to be a Cabbage-patch kid, now I’m on my way to be a Barbie” M. F. from Davie
“27 lbs and now I’m able to wear pants from 10 years ago” M.G. from Pembroke Pines

“I lost 11 lbs in 6 days and I did not struggle at ALL” L. C. from Miramar
“Even my cellulite went away, I really believe that Dr. Schiff’s plan is life changing. You must stick to the plan and it is fabulous! The results are so AMAZING…. Just look in the mirror each day and see the pounds disappear.” LW – North Miami Beach
“I cannot believe that after only 4 weeks [on the program] I am totally off all my diabetes and cholesterol medications. My sugar levels are fantastic and I feel better than I have felt in many years! I get chills just thinking of how far I have come. Thank you Dr. Schiff and staff for your caring support!” Maresa P, Miramar
“Before I went to Dr. Schiff’s Wellness Center I was involved in a car accident 4 years ago. I have 2 largely herniated disks in my neck and was taking approximately 3600 mgs of Motrin a day. Needless to say, I was blowing out my Kidneys. – I started losing strength and function in my hands in September 09 and was told I needed neck surgery or I would not regain my hand function. I was devastated but resolved that I needed the surgery.
I saw Dr. Schiff at the Orchid Farm and told him of my dilemma. He told me about his program and in early December with nothing to lose but weight – I went to see him. After being on this diet for 4 weeks I noticed that I had better strength in my hands and that I had not taken ANY Motrin or muscle relaxers for my neck pain. I also notice that my arthritic knees were doing much better.
By month 3 I had lost 30 lbs and felt terrific!! I cancelled my surgery!! I am one pound away from being on maintenance. This was the easiest weight loss program I have ever tried and I have tried them all. Everyone at the center is wonderful, caring, helpful and involved with you to be successful. I feel so good that if I never eat another piece of bread again in my life then so be it!!!
I want to thank everyone at University Wellness & Weight Loss Center for helping me be successful and more importantly……Keeping me away from the Knife!!!
Enid F, Cooper City
“I’m so excited! So far I have lost 53.7 lbs. My anniversary rings used to be tight as size 8 and I had to get it sized to a 6.5.” Melissa H. from Miramar
Just a note to say Thank you!!! I would like to say thank you because you have changed my life at 60, feel better and look better than what I thought 60 was going to look like and feel like… Mercy L., Pembroke Pines
“I started on the program approximately 21/2 months ago I was 167.5 lbs and now I am 145 lbs This has been an amazing experience for me. I follow the diet to the letter and exercise consistently 6 days a week.” Merlene P., Miramar
N. B. from Pembroke Pines has ONLY been on the program 2 weeks and said this- “I’m now wearing pants and belts that I have not been able to wear in almost 2 years!!”
“When I started this program I was pessimistic. I know you have heard this with a lot of testimonials, that I tried every diet there ever was! They all worked for a period of time when I was focus but I truly have been on yo-yo diets all my life! The first week on this diet I lost 9.5 pounds. That alone for a woman and over 50 is unheard of! I was pumped! Ever since then I have had consistent weight loss and have gone down 2 sizes and lost 30 pounds in 3 months overall! I love the staff; they are very knowledgeable, accommodating and inspirational! I truly would recommend this program to anyone who has been struggling with weight and does not want to feel like they are depriving themselves because you are just not hungry!”
Michele P., Plantation
“I have never found such an effortless way to lose weight, and believe me I’ve tried them all. Thanks University Wellness & Weight Loss, now CardioMender, MD Weight Loss Specialists, for enabling me to lose those 40 lbs I had gained after quitting smoking. A word to the wise, don’t buy new clothes right away. I did and I lost the weight so quickly that brand new outfits were too big before I even wore them!” Pat G., Deerfield Beach
“Today is my 58th day on the Wellness Program, recommended to me by my cardiologist, Dr. Denis McMillan. It is also the 45th day without any insulin injections! I was able to go off my insulin after about a week on the program, after about 9 years of insulin use of about 200 units per day. My previous Doctor, an Endocrinologist, had told me that my pancreas had stopped working and I needed insulin supplements. That was obviously not the case.
I used to feel tired, lethargic, bloated and could not breathe or sleep properly. Now I had discontinued the use of my CPAP machine and sleep very well. I have more energy than I have had in 20 years. I am now able to walk over a mile a day, and enjoy my “Man Cave” in my garage (my workshop).
My blood chemistry is changing for the better and I am more mentally alert. I am not so irritable as I used to be and have more patience to accomplish things I want to do.
Dr. Schiff has the tremendous capacity to give every patient personal care and attention, being accessible whenever I need him. This is truly exceptional in today’s medical arena. The staff is attentive, encouraging, and makes you feel good during the weekly checkups. They help with dietary choices and instructions and function as a real support group. Their smiles are energy producing as they are heartfelt. I feel like a “Club Member” and enjoy every visit.
My relatives, who are out of state, want to know what my diet is to lose so much weight. I try to tell them it’s not just a diet, but a carefully monitored wellness program that has weight loss as one of the benefits.
Is summary, I recommend the Dr. Schiff Wellness Program to anyone that wants to improve their life.” Robert B., Davie
“I have never been able to lose this much weight. I am so happy, feel so much better. I have dropped from size 12-14 to size 8. Have had to buy all new clothes. Thanks Doc. You are the best.” Tara L from Plantation
“2 weeks into the program and I’m down 16.5 lbs w/ no exercise. Program has been very easy to follow and success keeps me with the program limits. In fact, I’ve even missed a few of the appetite suppressants and have not noticed any hunger” Tom O. from Weston
“In 10 weeks I went from a fat overweight woman to a Hot cougar! I went from a size 14 to a 6 in less than 3 months.” Vicki B. from Davie
“Dr. Schiff recommended this program to me as one of his patients. I have had a weight problem all my life and I love to eat. As a type II diabetic with high blood pressure I wanted to lose weight. I wanted to get off my meds. I tried to do it on my own, but I was not successful.
In 5-6 weeks I achieved my goals:
• Lose 20-25 pounds
• Get of diabetes meds and blood pressure meds
It was easy, and I could not have done without this program. You can do it too!”
Tracy H., Weston
“5 months ago walking in here I was told I was borderline diabetic, I was in constant back pain, no energy and sluggish. But since I have been on the program and the over 60 lb weight loss, I feel like a new person. Healthier, more energy and my blood sugar is back to normal. I have nothing but thanks and praise for Doc and his staff. You guys ROCK!” Chris W. Cooper City
