“I’ve read extensively how the pharmaceutical industry is in the back pockets of many physicians and many doctors over-prescribe meds. I’ve also seen this firsthand with my father and with my previous doctor. It is so refreshing to work with Dr. Weiss collaboratively as my partner to address my issues holistically. Obviously there is a time and a place for medications but eating healthy, exercise, and overall good habits should be the starting point on the road to great health.” B.F. Long Grove
“I redid my before and after photo. I just posted this on my Facebook wall. I’ve gotten close to 40 likes, and over 12 comments, in less than 15 mins!!!! My agility friends are all telling me I’m looking great, and that I’m now so TINY! Many haven’t seen me in less than several layers of clothes, sweat shirts and winter clothing, since last summer. So this is a real change for them to see.
Thank you so very much for helping me lose my weight! It’s weird, because, I have ALWAYS seen myself as my after. I never thought of myself as sooo obese. When I saw pix of myself, I hated them, because they made me look heavier than I really was… that’s what I *thought*!
Now… I look in the mirror, but I see myself, looking the same as *before*. However, my clothes tell me, I’m MUCH smaller than I was before! Now I go through my closet, and put my old clothes on, that mostly *just* fit, to find they are so big, I can’t even TRY to wear them now!!!
I had a friend asking on fb about a GP, many people replied to her. She contacted me, asking more about you. She said she had kept finding you and so many positive comments about you, before I made my recommendation. She was THRILLED to hear the same, from a person she knows! I believe she is making an appt with you. – A.B
When I began on the meal replacement weight loss program back in June 2012, I never dreamed that I would find it so easy – or that I could be so successful on the plan. But with some determination as well as the support of … and the great staff at North Shore Primary Care, I have achieved milestone after milestone! After only 6 months, my BMI has dropped and my blood pressure is the best it’s been in years. And best of all – what used to be my “skinny” jeans are waaay to big. I’m now on regular routine of exercise and beginning to transition back to regular food. After years of trying unsuccessfully to lose weight on diet after diet, I never thought I would be this thin again! Thanks North Shore! – K.K
“For the past five years, I’ve been coming to your office for my routine medical visits. Recently, I learned that I contracted breast cancer and you’ve been a steady influence as I make my way through diagnosis, treatment and recovery. I would recommend your practice to anyone who wants good medical advice and a warm, caring primary physician.” -P.P
“I cannot begin to explain how my life has changed as a result of my weight loss. Since I needed to lose a lot of weight I did not even know where to begin. I saw a weight loss surgeon but knew that surgery was not the answer for me. I decided to look for a doctor that specialized in weight loss. After searching the internet, I came across North Shore Primary Care’s website and I decided to all and make an appointment with Dr. Weiss. This is where my journey began. The staff and nurses at North Shore Primary Care were so nice to me. They made me feel comfortable all the tme. Tin addition they were very accommodating to my busy schedule. When I met Dr. Weiss, I knew that she was going to be able to help me. Her kind demeanor and vast knowledge of weight loss really impressed me. She also took the time to get to know me. She always had solutions when I was struggling.
After losing a good amount of weight, I decided to try HCG injectinos. While I was scared and somewhat skeptical because I do not like needles, I decided to give it a try. I have now lost a little over 70 pounds since I started my weight loss journey last April and forty of those pounds were lost while on HCG and following a low calorie diet. I love the fact that I am not hungry all the time and that I have lost a lof of inched around my waist, thighs and upper arms. While my weight loss journey is not over yet, I am confident for the first time in my life that I can do this. I would like to give a special thanks to nurse Jennifer for all of her help and support! Meeting with her regularly helped me so much! I am very thankful for having met Dr. Weiss. This experience has changed my life. I cannot wait until I reach my goal weight.” – T.S
“I have been a patient of Dr. Shana Weiss for about 7 years. Of all the primary care physicians I have had in the course of my 66 years, she excels in providing her patients with an exceptional doctor/patient relationship. Dr. Weiss takes all the time needed to answer my questions and always make sure that I grasp all the information she gives. She has such a strong commitment to her practice, and her entire staff is wonderful as well! It is such a comforting feeling to know that Dr. Weiss provides the best possible medical care. It sounds cliche, but they truly care about their patients versus other practices where you feel just like a number. When I have been in the hospital for various surgeries, Dr. Weiss has either stopped by to see me, or has phoned me to see how I was doing. If I have been in to see her, due to a more serious illness, she or one of her nurses, will phone the next day, to see how I am feeling!!” -C.W.
“Recently on the national and local news broadcasts, there was a report that stated, “Only 1 in 10 physicians report back to their patients with lab and radiology reports even if the results of those tests appear to show serious problems. Dr. Weiss or one of her nurses will always call, as soon as they receive the test reports.” – C.W.
“Thank you for your kind, caring, enthusiastic participation in my health. You are a great physician, and I’m glad you are MINE!” -N.D.
“I have been a patient of Dr. Shana Weiss for approximately ten years now. I find her to be a caring and conscientious physician. I believe in preventive health care and she is an excellent partner to help me maintain the goal I am trying to achieve. She listens, she cares, and she makes herself available to administer to my mental, emotional, and physical needs. She is my idea of what a good doctor should be.” – C.N
“The Weight For Me weight loss program is saving my life. I am a 55 year old female diabetic and I was dangerously overweight. I realized that I needed to do something to improve my health. Dr. Weiss, Lisa, and I agreed that this program was the answer. I began this journey on May 25th and have lost 30 pounds, my BMI has dropped 4 units, I have reduced my diabetes medicine by half. Best of all, I feel wonderful and I’m confident I’m adding years to my life”. K.F. Sept. 2012
