"I came to Dr. Thaxton because I had tried everything else to lose weight without success. With his kind and caring attitude, his easy to follow program and the products he offers, I've lost 40 pounds and I feel better than I have in forever. I picked up two 20 pound bags of dog food and and realized just how heavy 40 pounds is. I was carrying that extra weight around all this time on my body! No wonder I had no energy."

"I have struggled with weight my entire adult life and have lost more weight than I can count. I have started a program with Dr. Thaxton and for the first time I am not hearing that it is my fault. Dr. Thaxton has researched obesity for years and his research has proven that there are many factors at play. During my visits at his office I am always encouraged and always praised, never made to feel like I have failed."

"I was searching for a non-invasive procedure that would help me lose weight and sculpt some problem areas like my thighs and stomach. I wanted something that required no recovery or downtime. My friend went in for Zerona Laser treatments and ended up with phenomenal results that have lasted for six months. Since we have similar figures, I immediately sought out the doctor for a consultation."
