For men and women living in Fort Lauderdale, Weston, Pembroke Pines and surrounding areas in Florida, who need extra help with losing weight, board-certified physician Dr. Val Manocchio of Doctors Best Wellness Center offers medical weight loss programs.
What is Medical Weight Loss?
Medical weight loss is a treatment that utilizes close medical supervision to help patients lose weight safely and effectively. For just the cost of supplies, Dr. Manocchio occasionally sees patients to discuss their pitfalls and to design new plans for success.
“I won’t charge an old patient a program fee; I consider them my patient for life,” he says. “Obesity is a chronic, reoccurring disease that requires a complete lifestyle transformation.”
As a South Florida weight loss specialist, Dr. Manocchio treats problems that impede weight loss, enhancing metabolism by thyroid or adrenal function treatments.

Benefits of Medical Weight Loss
Our medical weight loss plans have helped patients with failed attempts at significant weight loss coming from almost every diet doctor in the South Florida area, every diet chain, and every diet protocol. We understand that all weight loss programs require strict adherence to the guidelines set forth. However, the close medical supervision and guidance we provide has proven to be invaluable.
Together with doctors, patients decide what’s best for them. Quick weight loss programs require the assistance and supervision of specialized physicians. Doctors Best Wellness Center medical weight loss stays on top of patient progress for best results. The entire patient population comes from word-of-mouth referrals. Anyone who needs to lose weight should come in and speak to the satisfied patients who have benefited from Doctors Best Wellness Center’s personal approach.
Aggressive, rapid weight-loss plans are safe and simple for any patient cleared and followed by a medical doctor. Diets of fewer than 1200 calories per day require medical supervision. Consumption of 500 to 800 calories per day and a protein-sparing modified fast can be harmful, even fatal, without proper medical oversight. There may be massive bodily fluid shifts, electrolyte losses, and cardiac arrhythmias. These diets are, however, safe under medical supervision under American Society of Bariatric Physician guidelines. Doctors Best Wellness has many patients on these plans losing weight comfortably and rapidly and curing obesity-related medical conditions. Doctors all agree that the faster patients lose weight, the better it is for their health if they maintain proper nutrition in the process.
Exercise is always important for those who are trying to lose weight, whether it’s just a few pounds or a massive amount of weight. Dr. Manocchio and his staff will design a fitness program to complement your nutritional intake so that you can drop the weight and keep it off. You will also realize secondary benefits, such as improved heart and lung health, increased energy and feeling more engaged with friends and family.
