Verified Patient Reviews
I was 5 minutes late and Allison was kindly waiting for me. She asked a lot of questions on my eating habits and proposed a plan that was not drastic and in line with my taste. I hope and believe this will be effective in installing better new habits for me, for long term and sustained weight loss, with the support of an empathetic professional.
She was okay, i expected better advice/helpful tips but she told me basic things i could find on my own through a simple google search. I also felt rushed during the meeting.
Doctor Schulman was amazing, very prepared and easy going. The goals are very reachable and customized exactly for what I like. I highly recommend her.
I enjoyed my visit with Allison because she was attentive, thoughtful in her approach and pragmatic in creating a realistic eating plan to suit my needs and help me reach my goals. I look forward to working with her. She is warm and our conversation was easy. I highly recommend her.
it was very thorough which i appreciated
I really like our interaction, we have already met 3 times. Ms Schulman is very professional and thorough, with excellent bedside manner, as she is a great listener and really makes an effort to know and understand her patients lifestyles and health issues. It is a pleasure to meet with her every month and learn from her the importance of leading a healthy life by eating healthy and exercising regularly. What I like most is that she has a long-term vision, insists on moderation and does not impose strict regimens that will eventually backfire.
She was very thorough and understood my specific needs. She was able to talk me through my new meal plan and then create a plan that works for me so that I can stick to it!
Very helpful and realistic with diet goals. Great!
She was great. I didn't have to wait at all. Easy to talk to. I highly recommend!
Very attentive to my needs
I did not receive the information for weight loss I was looking for. It was just a consultation with food suggestions. It was not helpful for me because I am allergic to many of the healthy foods.
Allison was great. She was not judgmental at all. She didn't weigh me which I thought was great because it's not about where you're at but where you want to go. She also didn't tell me how much I should weigh but asked what my goal was. She provided an easy to follow plan. I would definitely recommend seeing her.
It was a great meeting. She was extremely helpful, gave doable suggestions and was overall very nice and professional. I'm looking forward to going again.
It was great, she didn't make assumptions or put me on some plan that seemed unreasonable. It was something based on my habits.
ALLISON WAS EXCELLENT
Allison is very knowledgable and attentive. She was very informative and engaged. I definitely gained some new knowledge from this visit.
