Weight Loss

The Heron Difference

The main goal at Doctor’s Weight Loss Center’s is to encourage you to develop new and better eating habits. While other diets cause a yo-yo effect and encourage deprivation through poor nutrition and chemically processed supplements, Dr. Heron’s weight loss plans promote healthy, long-term weight management and an overall change in lifestyle. We don’t offer pricey, pre-packaged foods or unrealistic liquid meal replacements, but instead, we guide you to make healthy choices when grocery shopping, preparing food at home and even while eating out. We make weight loss realistic.

What to Expect

Should you wish to lose weight quickly, try our FAST diet. Complete the program and receive a tailored meal program just for you, including desserts!

Our unique, 5 stage program will help you detox from processed foods, lose weight and most importantly, maintain lifelong results. This approach allows you to move at the pace you’re most comfortable with and helps prevent the unwanted weight loss plateau. Each stage is suited to meet your individual dietary preferences and health needs. No two people are exactly alike, so why would you eat a one-size-fits-all diet?

Weight loss packages include consecutive weekly visits to weigh in and receive nutritional counseling, education and support.  Sessions typically focus on behavior modification, including education in healthy eating habits inside and outside the home, as well as long-term plans to deal with weight problems.

Dr. Linda is wonderful - has never made me feel rushed. Highly recommend for Dysport. Her rates for Dysport are reasonable & substantially lower than my dermatologist


My experience at Heron Med Spa was awesome. I look great & feel great. I'm still healing and a little sore. I do everything they told me to do. I worked the same day.


Professional & prompt, Dr. Heron is an excellent surgeon. I had laser lipo on my neck & jowls. I am pleased with my result for two reasons: the results are phenomenal!


From the first time I talked with Dr. Heron I knew I made the right choice. He explained in detail every that I need to do during my recovery. My results were amazing. I


20 years ago I was referred to Dr. Heron for weight loss. I return every year to prevent gaining during holidays. If I am struggling with my weight I restart his program.


I had a laser session for scars with Barbara. The session was great - very knowledgeable. I look forward to going back.


I will definitely wear a bikini this summer. After two kids, I called Dr Heron. I only took pain medicine for three days and followed doctor's orders. My skin is tighter.
