A Message from Dr. Manocchio
I began my Emergency Medicine career in 1979 and practiced anesthesiology for several years. Today in my South Florida clinic I am truly saving many more lives. I help my patients achieve optimal health through medical weight loss, nutritional replacement, and Bio-identical hormone balancing with the 3 sciences being equally challenging and quite fascinating for me.
This website represents my desire to help as many persons as possible. Our quality products and fair prices are all you will need to achieve fitness and optimal health, along with your doctor’s OK, of course. I will strive to provide some key tips to help you lose weight but understand, you must be monitored by a medical doctor when dieting and medical monitoring is absolutely essential when using a VLCD (very low calorie diet).
My patients wish to look and feel better and I am personally rewarded with each pound we lose together. Most significantly they all dramatically improve their health, quite often able to cut down or stop their cardiovascular or lipid lowering medications.
I totally believe in our products and the benefits of weight loss and incidentally, I lost 46 pounds in 12 weeks on the very same VLCD we use at our center and I feel great.
I still dine on these very same products every day, primarily because they taste so delicious but more importantly, because I unconditionally must maintain my new healthy weight.
If you feel you need to lose weight or you simply wish to live longer and enjoy a healthier lifestyle please make an appointment to see me in my South Florida office. If not, I encourage you to decide on a plan that fits your lifestyle and bring the plan and the products, or their nutritional information to your doctor to begin your journey to improved health today.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Patient Success Stories
I use to be 260 lbs. At age 24, I had routine blood work done and found out I had high cholesterol and was borderline diabetic. I had to make a change. I began the protein modification diet back in July of 2010, because I refused to get bariatric surgery, knowing I was capable of making a change. Because of my low carb, low calorie lifestyle, and of course exercising, I can proudly say two years later I weigh 150 lbs. -Amy C.
My name is Elana and this is my story: After graduating high school, I had to move out from my parents house which made me spiral out of control and suddenly gained 25lbs within 6 months. I stopped exercising, going out, doing the things I loved. I immediately decided to take advantage of the support from Doctors Best and decided to begin their weight loss program. I dropped 10lbs the first two weeks. I never felt restricted or deprived, and I enjoyed the flexibility and freedom the plan provided. So far I’ve lost 30lbs and I am no longer embarrassed to go out and do the things I love. I am very grateful to have found a support system such as Doctor’s Best. -Elana
