Read below to hear some of the great transformations from Wellness Visit patients!
“Changed My Life”
“The HCG program changed my life and the way that I now see food. It transformed by body, mind, and soul. I feel great about myself. After a recent physical, my blood work results showed that I had very high cholesterol levels and was pre diabetic. I knew that if I did not undergo a life change, my health would continue to suffer. I wanted to be around for a long time for my 3 young kids. I knew I had to take dieting seriously and lose all the extra weight I had gained in the past 10 years which was over 40 lbs.
I was very hesitant at first. I did not want to be doing shots on a daily basis or inject a hormone into my body. With the help of Dr. Lombardo, all of my fears and doubts were addressed. HCG is a hormone normally produced by the body when pregnant so injecting the hormone didn’t seem out of the ordinary since I have had 3 babies. The needle is so tiny that even someone with a fear of needles like myself would not find it hard to do. When done correctly, the shots were painless and manageable.
What I found appealing and different about this program is that it requires very little exercise. With a full-time job and three kids, an exercise routine does not always fit into my hectic schedule. I’m not saying it was easy. It was the hardest thing I have ever done as far as losing weight. In the end, it was definitely worth it. You have to be committed and put the work in. I would definitely do it again if I had to but I am committed to keeping the weight off.
My body has transformed. I have dropped a total of 35 lbs in 5 months and am feeling great! I’m now done with the program and on a ‘maintenance plan’ which means I will slowly go back to eating the foods I love in moderation. The program has transformed how I see food. It has taught me how to choose the right foods, and still eat what I love to maintain a healthy weight. I have not looked this good even before I had kids and was in the gym for hours. The inflammation that I felt on a daily basis when I had all the extra fat is gone. I don’t feel tired or bloated when I wake up. Because of my new food choices, I am full of energy.
If you are tired of feeling heavy, drained, and low energy and you are ready for a change, this is the program for you. Dr. Lombardo is available and accessible to you when you need him. I always felt like I had my personal coach right there to guide me and ease my fears/concerns and answer any questions. I’m so glad I completed the program and can now focus on something other than losing weight!
Thank you, Dr. Lombardo!”
“Challenging and Enlightening”
“My weight loss journey has been both a challenging and enlightening process. Coming from an ethnic background, I was used to meals with high-fat meat cuts, carbs, and sugar. There was definitely a learning curve as I learned the different alternatives to sugary and fatty foods. I even did my own research for finding recipes and adjusting to healthy and tasty meals. It has been a positive lifestyle adjustment that’s being implemented for my whole family.
Dr Ryan Lombardo has been a very patient, resourceful, compassionate, understanding guide to these individual lifestyle changes. My weekly visits have been educational and rewarding. Reviewing my weekly weight and changes has been more encouraging than doing my own plan at home. In the office I was able to monitor how I was losing fat, building muscle and maintaining my water levels with encouragement and adjustment according to my weigh in details. It continues to prove to be a positive lifestyle change of healthy decisions. As my extended family members see my transformation they wish to make changes as well. This has been a phenomenal addition for D+A to incorporate for the overall well-being of their patients. ”

“I highly recommend Dr. Lombardo’s Weight Loss Program. My family has a history of diabetes and I was overweight and pre-diabetic myself. I knew I needed to lose weight but doing so has never been easy for me. Just watching what I ate was not working for me. I was fortunate when I found out about Dr. Lombardo. I made a Wellness Visit appointment with him and found out about the HCG Weight Loss Program. After my first appointment, I was determined to lose weight. Dr Lombardo provided me with information about the HCG program of a strict food plan, cutting fats, sugars and carbohydrates from your diet while performing the HCG injections.
Dr. Lombardo was great in monitoring my weight loss weekly! I would weigh in weekly, registering my muscle mass, water weight, and fat loss. He would give me recommendations on how to keep on track. After 4 of the 6 week program I began to tire of some of the food and the routine of the diet, but with his encouragement, I was able to stick with it and I’m so happy I did.
While the diet was easy to follow, you must have willpower! From my experience, it is important to plan out your meals in advance so you do not have the desire to cheat. Using spices to cook with really helped in the taste of the food and allowed me to be creative with my meals.
After 12 weeks I finished the program and lost 30 lbs of fat, losing 6 inches in my chest, 3 inches in my waist and 4 inches in my hips. Needless to say, I had to buy a new wardrobe! People notice right away and compliment me on how great I look! I feel great too!
If you are looking for help in weight loss, look no further. From personal success, I recommend Dr. Lombardo. He is so great!”

“Over the past few years, I started struggling with my weight. It was always difficult, but now as I was aging I was definitely trending up. It started to take a toll on my sleep, energy, mood, and digestion, to name a few. Being in a very busy work environment, you take for granted the small things that keep your body balanced. You forego the workout and sleep in. You skip lunches for meetings. You have coffee throughout the day but forget about water. You make up for missing meals with a big satisfying meal at night and a relaxing glass (or two) of wine. Sound familiar?
I understood these weren’t the healthiest choices, but I could not find a way to change this pattern. I needed help. I needed a structured plan. Dr. Lombardo gives you a very clear and personalized plan outlining what you need to do for optimal weight loss and health. He doesn’t coddle you but he is always there to help you when you get off track or feel a loss of motivation. Fast forward to today where I have the energy to exercise consistently, I plan my meals so that I never skip them, I still have coffee by my side but my electrolyte infused water is also my constant companion. My relationship with food is completely different thanks to him. I’m a little more than 40 lbs. lighter with a few more pounds to lose to reach my goal, but with Dr. Lombardo’s guidance, I’m confident I’ll get there. You do have to put in the work but the benefits far outweigh the challenges.
Today I’m healthier, happier, and more energetic than I’ve been in a very long time.”
