“I believe Dr. Aronne has pioneered a new approach to weight loss of obesity. His multi-disciplinary methods remove the guilt and give control back to the patient. In my own case, I no longer live day to day dieting. Food is no longer something to fear; it’s something I enjoy when I am hungry. I have learned to control my hunger using the many tools he has given me. It took twenty-five years to find Dr. Aronne.” —Patricia Wexler, M.D.
