Castillo, Elquis MD
Very upset with the way things were handled with my mother. We went to see Dr. Castillo to get results from a biopsy that she had a few days earlier. He told us that she could be dead within a week then said he would be admitting her to the hospital indefinitely. She was released by him the next day and said she was only put in because she was dehydrated which was never mentioned the day before. He caused a lot of anxiety, stress, and confusion that could have been avoided. Really needs to think about how he delivers bad news to people.

The friendliest staff. They get to know you by name. They listen to what you have going on instead of just hurrying through a list of symptoms. Dr. Hood has to be the best physcian I have ever seen. He is interested in your life well-being, not just trying to get you in and out in the shortest time possible. He listens to you, talks to you, and helps you, not just physically but emotionally also. He has his own x-ray, his own lab for some simple tests to be run, and also his own surgical area for minor things! Absolutely the best!

Have been suffering for 4 years, dozens of trips to doctors and ER, lost 40 lbs, half my hair, most of my teeth, severe pain and could not eat enough to keep up my strength, mostly bedridden. He was the ONLY doctor to treat my pain. Gained 25 lbs and a partial life. DEA took him down-been in bed for 3 months, lost 20lbs, suffering and waiting to die. He is missed.

Love Dr.Herrera. He is very caring and listens to his patients. He has a wonderful bedside manner and takes the time to actually treat you and not just your symptoms. His nurse is very nice as well. So glad that I finally found a doctor who cares about me and isn't just rushing to get me out of the office and charge me a grand.

My favorite doc on the planet. Never met a doc, or anyone else, who seemed to genuinely care about me. If I can keep him forever I will! He's a wonderful person. If you haven't tried to see him yet I encourage you to try him, you'll be very happy with his open mind & his big heart.

Tips & Advices
A meal replacement is a substitute for a meal, typically a drink or a bar. While processed meal replacements have a set number of calories, many are high in added sugar and low in protein, fiber and healthy fats.
Appetite suppressants, like all drugs, have side effects, so read the fine print and discuss potential side effects with a medical professional before taking them. Stimulant-type drugs can cause insomnia, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, drug dependence and abuse, and withdrawal symptoms. Drugs that work to prevent fat absorption can cause gas, soft stools, and oily spotting. Diet pills that affect neurotransmitters are associated with headache, nausea and vomiting, constipation, dry mouth, and dizziness.
People generally lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) if they stick to a calorie-controlled plan. Increasing exercise can increase weight loss.
Medical weight loss is supervised by a medical professional and targets the causes of obesity and weight gain. Treatments can run the gamut, from diet and nutrition to pills and surgery, but the goal is to help the patient achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life.
Many people can see results in one to two weeks if they stick to their plan. Weight loss results vary from person to person and depend on factors such as starting size and caloric intake level. Including exercise in the program can accelerate weight loss.
