“I really appreciate all that you’ve done to help me improve my health. I also appreciate how you treat me as a person, and don’t try to wedge me into a number that is billable. You look me in the eye and spend time listening to what I have to say. I feel you have a true interest in my health outcome and that you are partnering with me, not just being dictatorial. You always know what to do in the way of supporting my body and helping me work toward becoming a more healthy and strong person, and I want to thank you for all that you do for me as I continue on my path. You’re the best!”

“The weight loss program was simple and easy. The incredible success I experienced while on this diet is almost entirely due to Dr. Mather’s careful guidance. Whenever my weight loss slowed or I had questions, she always had answers, and those answers always WORKED! I lost 90 lbs in 6 months and have kept the weight off for over a year. I am forever grateful. ”

“Dr. Mathers is wonderful, and I’d highly recommend her.  Her attention to my particular needs helped me achieve a 25 lb weight loss in a few months.  I can honestly say, without her knowledge, support & suggestions, I don’t think I could have made it this far.”
