I had my third follow-up appointment with Dr. Covington today and she is great. According to the scales, I am no longer classified as obese. A first for me in many, many years. Dr. Covington takes her time talking about the plan and how to get your weight goal accomplished. Dr. Covington spends the time with me, answering my questions, and figuring out what is the best approach for me. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Covington is a great doctor she is very good at what she does and it’s obvious that she really loves her job. I feel lucky to have her as my doctor.
I moved to Charlotte in Spring 2015, soon after finishing my medical residency program. I was 50 pounds overweight and mentally and physically exhausted. I knew I had to lose weight; especially as a new private practice physician. I started with exercise, jogging regularly. I felt better but I failed to lose weight. My next step was working with a personal trainer. This helped somewhat but my weight loss was very slow. For some reason my body was fighting my attempts for weight loss, as if it wanted desperately for me to stay at the higher weight. To add, I had a major sweet tooth and could not shake my love of sugar and desserts. Six months after starting my exercise routine I made an appointment with Dr. Covington. She partnered with me on a detailed plan that included nutrition, physical activity, and medical therapy.
