What our patients say
I was considering bariatric surgery and then found WCWMR. What a relief since I’m skeptical of the long term success of surgery. WCWMR isn’t a weight loss clinic, it’s a place to go for a lifestyle change. Since WCWMR attacks weight loss from so many different angles, I found that something that worked for me was different than what worked for my wife. Dr. Rubino and her staff are second to none. They’re easy to work with and listen to. They made sense in what they were telling me and made me a believer of their program.
