I came to Institute for Weight Management in June 2006, feeling like my weight had gone out of control. I could not lose the 50+ lbs I needed to lose with a regular diet, though I tried for months. I would lose 5-10 lbs, only to gain it back. I met with Dr. Chhabra before I began the program, and felt that I finally came to the right place.
After yo-yo dieting for some years and trying to get my weight back on track after having some health issues, I realized nothing I tried was working.

After trying many, many diets and even weight loss surgery all to no success, I finally decided to try a medically supervised diet. Dr. Chhabra and the Optifast Program have been life-changing for me. I feel healthier than I have in years. I have more energy, feel confident and motivated due to the quick results. The atmosphere of the office is so pleasant and the ladies always make me feel like a winner. I have already recommended friends and family to her practice.
I have been seeing Dr. Chhabra at the Institute for Weight Management for over nine months. I lost approximately 40 lbs. and have been able to maintain my current weight for the last two months. Dr. Chhabra and her staff provided me with the incentive and structure I needed to accomplish my goal for losing weight. Dr. Chhabra is extremely knowledgeable, caring and provided me with the motivation I needed to be successful in losing weight.
I have been overweight most of my adult life. I love food, however all the wrong types of food or too much good food. I eat when I’m happy and when I’m sad, I eat just to eat. I definitely never exercise as I should, but always seeking quick fixes to lose weight which I never maintain for any period of time.
