Looks like to me that you lost 55 lbs, that is one thing it did to your body, so to speak. It ain't good for the old ticker if you have some ticker problems. Did your grandma or grandpa have heart troubles? your folks? I would not worry about it too much.
Now, I don't have a clue about your money but maybe you had better leave that one alone if the good doctor got sent to the pokey. Do you know what I am saying? Better leave sleeping dogs lie.

True story, Ditty. Absolute fact, as horrible as it sounds. Doctors have been giving these shots for years;
HCG - Female hormone tested for pregnancy; levels rise by double each day if pregnancy is patent.
HCG is derived from blood and urine from pregant females.
No. I am not making this up. Speeds up the metabolism.
For the love of money, I have heard it all now. Hell, if I could 55 lbs.....

All good things must come to the end they say, and all rings true! It was great while it lasted. I am sad about the outcome of the Doctor's Weight Loss Center. It WAS WORKING FOR ME!!!!! I miss those magic shots "B-12/HCG". I dropped 20 pounds in two months. I don't even care about the pills, I never took those correctly anyway. I know that portion control and the lovely soup for lunch helped also, but without those shots, I can tell a BIG difference. Does anyone know where we can get them now (legal)?
I too can tell a BIG difference without the shots, it's been about 4 weeks since I have had one. Still have a few more pills, seems like the combination of the two for me were working real well! Very disappointed the weight loss center is now gone, wish I had somewhere else to go to lose a few more pounds.

The office here in Rockingham NC doc, did not write prescriptions for the medication, nor did you ever see a doc. The girls in the office would go into another room, hand you your pills, give you a shot, weigh you and basically that was the extent of it. But because it was working for me, I still would probably go anyway.

No offense taken- and yes he is in nashville tn and he is xcellent-and i have used him since may 2006 but my goodness with all the restrictions and how difficult it is to get an rx I feel like i'm, doing something illegal. I wouldn't want him to get in trouble by putting his name on the internet. I would still use him except for i have moved- so any suggestions- anyone???

I would like to post a reply to some of the posts about the employees who worked for this doctor. They were mislead into believing what they were doing was moral. If your employer, who is a medical doctor by the way, tells you what you're doing is not illegal then you have no choice but to believe him. I do believe the 'girls' who worked for this doctor in no way intentionally mislead any of us patients.

I would like to know also what happens to all of our personal information. I paid for DEC. and only got one shot. It was so weird, I went one week and got my shot in Rockingham and the lady told me I could take it home b/c I had recently taken them home. I told her I would come before I went out of town. I went on a Thursday around 2 and it was weird that they were closed. The next day something told me to get on the net and that it where I found out about the shut down. I tell you I don't know what was in the shot/pills, but I did lose 27lbs. If anyone finds someplace else to go, please let us know.
The Medical weight loss center is opening up here in Rockingham in the next few weeks. The office will be across from aco bell in the white building. Thought you may want to check it out if need to. Good luck.

I hope this answers your questions to those of you who went to the weight loss clinics at whatever location. I have talked to a lot of people about Dr.'s Weight loss and it amazes me at how many people are all about the program and who cares what they give me...OMG! It's working. All of a sudden a place closes down and people freak out. Why didn't you ask these questions before you started the program? I'm pretty sure some if not all of the girls discussed the entire program. I guess most of you were just in lah lah land during that. But here goes...
The pills Phentermine 37.5mg...this is a prescription drug. The drug is not illegal, the way the Doctor decided to distribute the medication was incorrect according to the law.
The injections were: B12 and HCG
Vitamin B12 and HCG is a hormone that women produce when they are pregnant

Neither of these are illegal. There are tons of other weight loss clinics who offer the exact same program, this program/Weight loss center did not follow all of the rules/laws closely enough...thus it was shut down.

Also, to those of you who were offered to take your shots home. Uhm, that is because you can and people are ALL about conveniance. You don't have to be a nurse to give yourself an injection. Do you think all diabetics who have to give themselves insulin shots went to nursing school? I don't think so.

I hate to be so harsh, but I'm just kind of sick of hearing about this and was going around on the internet and look what I stumbled upon. Btw, I believe a new weight loss center is actually opening in Rockingham. Haha. I am sure all of the people who went to the first one will go to this one as well...and not listen or ask questions.

I do apologize for being so rude sounding. It just comes off to me that people are like OMG what did they do to me? But it worked, where can I get more? lol Good luck to all of you. I hope I helped.
