Verne Weisberg, MD
I have been a practicing Plastic Surgeon in Portland for 24 years. Over these years I did a LOT of liposuction and body sculpting operations to help people get on track with their weight and fitness, but often saw the beautiful results dissolve over a short time as people didn't seem to know how to keep the weight off. Frustrated with sending them to Weight Watchers,etc, I and an Anesthesiologist friend, Dr. Rodney Voisine, both having a strong interest in health and wellness decided to start a true program of our own out of my office, three years ago. We have been extremely successful with helping people to lose weight and get healthy. In my own personal education, learning and trying everything from Clean eating to raw food vegan, have come to the strong belief in Primal eating of ancestral diets. Although on a vegan diet I lost 25 pounds (that I didn't know I needed to lose!), I did not. Feel well, and had significant abdominal symptoms. Since migrating to whole, traditional foods,increasing my healthy fat intake and exercising modestly but Primally, I have filled back out a bit with about 5 lbs of lean body mass, have correct energy, no abdominal or GI issues, and my skin has regained a healthy glow. I am passionate about the benefits of this style of eating and moving, and derive tremendous gratification from helping my patients to do the same.
