I enjoyed my visit and would highly recommend Brandon. He was very knowledgeable in discussing my meal plans and eliminating the non-healthy foods that I was consuming. Also, we discussed an exercise regimen.

Brandon is a very patient and thorough listener to my lifestyle habits, diet and my goals. He is very upfront and open on what is realistic and what are just fad diets. I went to him particularly because he has apersonal training background as exercise and eating right must be combined. I am very happy with his recommendations and he was very thorough.

Everything was great! Caraballosa listened to my needs, and the elements of laziness in my life (I told him that I'm more likely to do a home workout than go to the gym, and he worked around that in my plan)and he speedily prepared a diet and workout plan for me to gain some muscle and lose some weight.

Brandon was friendly and welcoming. It felt more like a conversation. I didn't feel like I was being lectured which was my fear. He made me feel comfortable, and was very easy to talk to. Really excited to change up my diet.

It was my first time seeing a nutritionist, so I didn't know what to expect, I just knew that I needed to change my life by eating differently. Brandon was friendly and unjudgemental. We came up with a game plan, and I feel more optimistic now. Would highly recommend!

He is such a nice guy and really cares about making his clients comfortable. He went above and beyond and took the time necessary to explain everything to me. I knew mostly all of this from my own research but heseems like a trustworthy individual and a knowledgeable one that will hold you accountable for your actions. Hopefully this will work out and I will lose the weight I want to and be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle!

I was the first appointment of the day and arrived 15 minutes early. I was pleasantly surprised to find Mr. Caraballosa already in his office. After some very quick paperwork and a few minutes for him to prepare, he saw mea few minutes earlier than my scheduled time. Mr. Caraballosa is very attentive, warm, and thorough. He gives you the feeling that he really cares about your needs and will do whatever it takes to help you out with whatever you're there for. I went in hoping that he would provide me with a nutrition plan moving forward, and that's what I left with (along with some very helpful printouts to guide me along the way). The office was small but very clean and well kept. It's easy to get to and in a convenient location. I actually can't believe I was able to make an appointment so soon (he was available just a few days after I was looking to book the appointment) knowing how great Mr. Caraballosa is. Don't be deceived by his availability - he's great!
