I really liked that Shelly was super flexible in her scheduling. I arrived at her home office, and was seen rightaway. She made me feel comfortable and allowed me to speak my needs and wants for most of our session. Although she did want me to consider the products for Optivia, I was also given a comprehensive food plan if I wanted it. Knowing what I need and where I'm at in my current ability to maintain my weight/food control and work schedule, I think Dr. Rothbart listened and provided me with a good option. I'm excited to work with her more!

I saw Shelley Rothbart,RD after trying on my own for a while using some apps and also buying some weight watcher meals. I was unable to get anywhere. I saw Shelley and she was clearly what I needed. She was ableto understand my concern about my health issues and give me personalized advice that fit my medical needs, and help me with compliance. I recommend her without reservation. She made me feel less self-critical for not being able to 'do it' on my own... I look forward to seeing her again and to meeting my goals.

She is genuinely happy to see her patients make progress, but she basically just told me everything I already knew. Doesn't spend enough time giving feedback and educating you on things you should do in order to lose weight. She gaveme two options- either follow the protein shake/ bar/ meal replacement regimen, or follow a natural diet. I chose to follow a natural diet. After seeing her twice, I realized that I could pretty much accomplish via an app, everything she tries to help you accomplish in person.

I have seen a couple of doctors and nutritionists in the past. But she was exceptional. She was personable and able to really hear me instead of telling me a bunch of stuff I would never end up doing... Unfortunately Ineed to go back but she gave me some ideas I plan to try. She is 1st one I actually plan to follow up with, which means maybe I will finally make progress with this BP problem and not need meds...

Very nice lady but only interested in selling Medifast. I agreed to first 2 months but it's very pricey. Once I told her I couldn't afford it and would like to create a food plan with her she stopped responding to my emails, so I never bothered going back.

I went for general nutritional information, like how to incorporate more whole foods into my diet, how to eat healthy in my busy life- but instead was pushed product. This person obviously works on commission on how many people she canmake feel like they need liquid meal replacements and packaged "diet" foods. When I kept expressing my disinterest in purchasing or learning about these products, it fell on deaf ears. Do not come here.

she was totally confused and messed up. Her diet plan was nothing but pieced of paper given to anybody, not at all personalized.

She listened to all my concerns and right away set up a program that i can begin to work on achieving my goals. I will have a follow up visit and I'm working in improving my cholesterol numbers and also loosea couple of pounds. Very good approach and had the patience to answer all my questions and provided me with some literature that i can read and put into practice

I started seeing Shelley 6 months ago and I held off on writing a review until I saw results. I've lost 25 lbs, I feel amazing and I'm happy with my results. Everything that she stated from the very beginning regardingmy progress has been accurate. She has been helpful and I wish I had came to her sooner. I trust in her expertise and highly recommend her. Thank you Shelley.

I've met with Dr Rothbart twice so far, and it's been super helpful. She's very personable and easy to talk to - the appointments just feel like we are chatting about this-and-that, but then I end up leaving loaded with usefulinformation. She has an arsenal of specific and implementable substitutions/suggestions. Everyone knows it's important to "eat right" - the hard part is actually making it happen... and Dr Rothbart gives you the tools to make it realistic to eat healthier and have a generally better lifestyle.
