Grand Opening of Dr. Gs Weight Loss & Wellness

For over 17 years Dr. G's has helped over 70,000 people lose weight quick and safely.  We joined Dr. G's for the grand opening of Dr. G's Weight Loss & Wellness located in Jetton Village.  Many clients attended the grand opening and while they didn't really want their picture taken, they had Testimonial after Testimonial... Dr. G's is the real deal and everyone we spoke to regarding his practice had nothing but compliments.  If you're interested in losing weight, give Dr. G's a call - they'll be happy to discuss the options with you and how each program is designed specifically for you.  Call us today!
