In addition to our comprehensive general medical and osteopathic practice, Howard M. Shapiro Medical Associates is proud of our continuing record in Weight Control. Under our supervision, thousands of overweight patients have been successful taking off excess dangerous pounds on a healthy weight loss program. By taking the time to support and educate our patients, weight maintenance is possible.
Our specialty in the field goes unchallenged in its safe and effective procedures. And we have never pandered to trends in a field noted for its irresponsibility. We are delighted that the Department of Consumer Affairs of the City of New York has recommended strict regulations be enforced to control unsafe practices by diet centers and manufacturers of diet products.
It Takes A Team
Our extensive medical staff, including a nutritionist, psychologist and exercise physiologist, works closely with each patient on an individual basis. We don’t compromise, we’re extremely thorough and we spend a lot of time educating patients. Evaluation reports are sent to referring physicians. Dr. Shapiro stresses a personal approach—“What works for one person may not work for another."
