When I first came to AlternaCare I was overweight. I have been on Synthroid most of my life. I constantly tried to lose weight by counting calories. I ate special prepared meals for 5 days a week and went to special gyms for exercise until my arthritis hurt too much. At my worst, I felt ugly, awkward, miserable, and I had trouble finding clothes to fit. My weight made me self-conscious in my job as I am very much in the public eye. In the past I was frustrated because regardless of what I did to loose weight the doctors told me at each visit that I would do better if I lost weight but I couldn't regardless of my efforts. I wasn't given any answers and didn't know what else to do. After coming to Alternacare I have lost 58 pounds, and my Synthroid has been reduced 3 times! I have more energy, reduced anxiety and I am wearing smaller clothes! I am getting compliments about being "pretty", losing weight, and people are complimenting me about having self-control for losing so much. Dr. Rob has been wonderful and I am getting results for the 1st time in many years! Dr. Rob gets to the cause of the issues and is so supportive and encouraging! The entire staff is wonderful as well!

Hi, my name is Jennifer and I found Alternacare about four years ago when I was incredibly sick. Dr. Rob and Pam were answers to my prayers in a very hopeless time in my life. I've not only healed tremendously through their efforts, but have gained a family. Their practice stands alone from absolutely any other medical practice in my opinion. Forever a patient.

I am an RN and a single mom and I have been suffering with fatigue for a couple of years. It got to the point that if I wasn't at work or doing mom stuff, I was sleeping because I was so tired all the time. I was basically living on caffeine to get me from point A to point B. I did seek care from a doctor prior to trying Alternacare, but basically they told me to loose weight and tried to put me on an antidepressant. It's really sad when doctors won't listen to their patients, especially when the patient is a nurse. It's true that I also needed to loose weight, but it was very hard for me to loose weight. No matter what I tried I was not successful. I had hired a personal trainer and did crazy cross fit workouts with her and it took me 8 months to lose 25 pounds. Then she moved to Florida and I couldn't find another trainer that I trusted like her. I gained all the weight back plus 10 pounds. Then I saw an add on Facebook for Alternacare and watched several videos and realized that this could actually be what I needed. I went in for an evaluation and testing and even though it was a little different and not what I'm used to, I decided to do everything that they told me to do. I had multiple hormonal imbalances. All of my fat storing hormones were elevated and all of my fat burning hormones were really low. No wonder it was super hard for me to lose any weight. I've been seeing Dr. Mark since late December 2016 and every week I'm feeling better. I've lost 46 lbs and counting!

I have to say my experience with Alternacare has been excellent. I have Lyme disease and have been experiencing many symptoms that haven't been managed. I have sbeen to multiple doctors looking for relief of my symptoms. I was having major headaches daily, joint and muscle pain that made it hard to get out of bed, swelling in my joints, extreme fatigue, trouble sleeping throughout the night and digestive issues. I have always been active and was unable to go to the gym without having my joints tighten and getting a feeling of flu like symptoms. I was very discouraged and had growing depression from not being able to participate in "normal" life activities. I decided to contact Alternacare in hopes of some relief. The staff has been excellent. They listened as I explained each symptom then developed a plan specific to meet my needs. After only a couple of weeks, I saw great improvement. I had energy to get up and participate in activities with my kids and husband and am able to just do normal cooking and cleaning without becoming extremely fatigued. I am sleeping all night. The muscle and joint pain has resolved and I rarely have headaches anymore. I have been receiving treatment at Alternacare for @ 5 months now and I am maintaining results. I have actually been able to get back into the gym this past week without feeling ill. I have also lost 35 pounds as a result of the care a Alternacare. I am feeling great! I am so glad I made the decision to go to Alternacare.

I was at the end of my rope trying everything I could to lose weight. Dr Rob helped me get to the bottom of the problem and find the root cause of my issues. I have lost 65lbs in a year with just 8lbs left to go. Dr Rob has been very patient, supportive and encouraging throughout the entire process! I can't thank them enough!

Alternacare has THE most caring and knowledgeable doctors and staff I have ever met! They definitely take the time necessary to find out what your needs and concerns are as well as tailoring a plan to fit the needs of each individual. The health of each patient is their primary concern so the patient can see results and continue on their path to health and wellness. This can be seen in watching them interact with others as well as myself. I am so blessed to know such caring people!

I worked with these guys about seven years ago. They are the best. They know what they're doing and they get results. I would recommend them to anyone for health and weight issues.
They have helped me lose 85 pounds. I used to wake up every two hours and was always tired. I now can sleep through the night. I used to feel stressed all of the time, I now can go with the flow so much easier. They treat me with kindness and respect. The most helpful Doctors I have ever been to. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to improve their health and life. I would definitely go to them again.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rob Debease for almost 5 year. He has empowered me to take control of my health. He is a great educator, very knowledgeable and many different areas. He is the one doctor I like talking to and trust. He has helped me through many serious health issues and I highly recommend him.

I knew my health needed attention and an approach other than the conventional medicine that was not helping me feel any better. I followed a link on Facebook, which is not the norm for me, and it took me to Alternacare. I filled out my information for the consultation, was contacted within a day, and had my first appointment just a few days later. The entire staff at Alternacare felt like family from the moment I walked through the door. Within ten minutes of my consultation with Pam, I knew that this was a life-changing moment for me. I've been seeing Dr. Truax for only three weeks, and my results are astounding. I have lost a total of seven pounds with no exercise, simply because my body has been too fatigued to do so. My energy levels have increased, my sugar cravings have diminished, my mind is thinking clearly again, and I have begun to exercise 2-3 times a week without the followed fatigue I used to suffer with. I sleep better at night and wake up with zest and am eager to get each day started. I still have a more to go, but this is absolutely the best investment in my life, my health, and in my spirit that I have ever made. If you are tired of struggling to feel better like I was, do not waste another moment of your life and give them a call.

After being batted around from one doctor's office to another with no one being able to identify what was causing my chronic memory problems, fatigue, and lack of energy- I was told that they could just give me depression meds. I continued to get worse, until at age 40, I was forgetting where the keys were on my keyboard. I finally found someone who could help. Dr. Rob (and his AWESOME staff) have taken wonderful care of me. Dr. Rob diagnosed me, and set up a personalized diet and supplement plan to support my health. Unlike other doctors, Dr. Rob wants his patients to contact him when they have any problems or questions. This type of personalized care has been priceless! My health journey has had some plot twists, but Dr. Rob has seen me through them. I now wake up with energy and focus, I can remember all the little details of the day, and I feel healthy again! Health care isn't cheap, and my family made sacrifices for me to have this care- but it was worth every penny. You can't put a price on good health! Thank you Dr. Rob!

I had been having gastro and energy problems for 2 years. My daughter consulted Dr. Rob and saw such good results that I also consulted him. I had h pylori bacteria which had caused a lot of bad bacteria in my digestive tract. By his testing he found that. I also did not have much energy and the test pinpointed that problem as adrenal fatigue. I started his program and the energy was the first great result I saw. The digestive tract took longer but it is now so much better. I have an appetite back at last. Dr. Rob is kind, caring and compassionate. S. Pounders
