Robert Fortino, D.O., is a Board-Certified Physician in Internal Medicine. He has been a Weight Management Specialist since 1999, focusing on medical weight loss, anti-aging, integrated health, hormone imbalance, and wellness. Dr. Fortino is licensed to practice medicine in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
As a Weight Management Doctor he believes in focusing on the whole patient through their total life experience, and not just a symptom. Using this technique, Dr. Fortino enables his patients to develop a pathway to success and not just to lose weight, but to live life to the fullest. His weight loss methods enable his patients to challenge themselves and conquer what might seem to be a mountain to climb. He believes in forming a partnership with the patient, giving them confidence in the process and a successful result.
Dr. Fortino received his undergraduate degree from Temple University in Mechanical Engineering and Technology in 1986. After 10 years in the engineering world, he decided to make a career change following a life altering medical condition. After recovery, he focused on medical school and graduated in 1996 from The Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed a residency in internal medicine in 1999.
Loving challenges in medicine, Dr. Fortino is also a residency trained flight surgeon in the United States Air Force since 2002, focused on Aerospace Medicine Occupational Medicine as it applies to the aerospace flight environment. Currently, he holds the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Military medicine is challenging because a physician must provide care to these incredible warriors who work in complex and dangerous situations. Their health and well-being are vital to work performance and the completion of the mission. To be a military physician one must be physically fit and mentally sharp and understand the work environment in which these Warriors perform.
Physically fit and practicing what he preaches is vital to Dr. Fortino. He won the 1989 North American Power Lifting Championship, and he continues to incorporate weight training in his life. Weight training became his passion. He credits weight training in strengthening his health, mind, confidence, and spirit. He believes it is the missing link for weight loss success. Dr. Fortino says, “True success is not losing 10 pounds, it is the process that you create to keep the 10 pounds off”.
Knowledge and confidence are the cornerstones to success. Dr. Fortino instills this at every patient encounter. Motivating someone to incorporate a fit lifestyle, practice more physical conditioning, and nutritional education is paramount for achieving true success in weight management. Nutrition is so important for Dr. Fortino. He believes that having a strong foundation of nutritional knowledge builds solid results. He teaches his patients that, “Food Is Medicine” as a model. This means that the right foods will “heal the body”. It is important to understand how this model can make great change. We are focused on “Strong Not Skinny”. With this knowledge and a team approach, his patients find true success, and the love of the life altering process that brought them there.
I’ve been dieting most of my life, even doing Hcg with its 500 calories. It worked for me, and I kept it off for awhile, but eventually I gained it back. Dr Fortino’s knowledge of nutrition is above & beyond most professionals. How many doctors & dietitians are aware of dwarf wheat? His plan, with wonderful recipes, is a lifestyle change that ensures the weight will stay off. Personally, I started with very low carb & lost 10 pounds the first 3 weeks. As I get closer to my goal I’ll add more healthy carbs and Dr Fortino’s plan is the best I have seen. His Boost Lipotropic Spray is an Amazing must have supplement, my daughter & I are hooked!! I also take his probiotic & will try his Reboot Spray next visit. Thankyou Dr Fortino💚Update: I stoped keto & craved fruit so started started mixing a variety of fresh fruit together and added other carbs. At one point I was going to resume keto because I felt like I gained, but when I got on the scale I was down another pound. I remembered Dr Fortino saying, “no one comes in here who gained from eating fruits & vegetables”. Total loss 20lbs😊
So nice, I HAD to review twice! Another year, another treatment, another GREAT experience. There is simply no better than Dr. Fortino!
Dr. Fortino is the most honest, supportive, and motivating weightless doctor in Philadelphia!
Simply the best !!!
I love Dr. Fortino I came to him at my highest weight (296) and very unhealthy! I was told by my orthopedic surgeon I would probably never run again to stick to low impact aerobics 🙁 I love running it releases my hyper activity and frustrations so that was devastating to hear. I came to this Dr. looking for guidance and a place I could be held accountable - We embarked on this life long journey together and it has been the best decision of my life! I am roughly 25- 30 lbs from my Ideal weight and healthy and happier now at 43 yrs old then I ever have been!!! Don't hesitate I found nothing negative to say about my experience the program will work as long as you yourself take control and work with it.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Fortino off and on for a few years. He is the best!! Dr. Fortino takes the time and listens to his patients. He provides the whole package- meal plans, exercise, and support. He and his staff are knowledgeable, warm, and friendly. I am so happy to have found Dr. Fortino and his staff!!!

The best doctor hands down! He’s not the typical doctor who sees patients and just hands out a script, he actually cares about his patients and makes each experience personable. I have lost over 40 pounds with him. I recommended all of my friends and family to him and they go to him as well!
They are the best I'm 42 and I been going to the Dr for over 20 years he is the best, I lose weight fast every time, it's nothing like it.
I’ve been seeing Dr Fortino off and on for 2 years. He and his staff are always friendly and professional. Dr. Fortino always takes his time to ask questions and keep you on track with your weight loss. The office is always bright and clean.

My name is Diane. I went to Dr. Fortino a few years ago. He was excellent, and his staff were so friendly. They made it such a pleasure to visit each week. I started losing weight and felt pretty good about myself. The only reason I had to stop going was because I retired and had to limit my finances.
Dr. Fortino is a wonderful doctor. On his program I lost over 70lbs. The staff is very friendly.
I have known Dr Fortino for many years and also have been his patient. Dr Fortino is amazing, hands down the best! I have struggled with weight my whole life. I finally have committed to making the change with some help. It’s all up to you and following the life changing eating habits. Dr Fortino and staff provide you positive encouragement and motivation and most of all treat you like family! For every 10lbs the bell rings and it feels so good!!!! I have been doing the pills and shots for about 6 weeks. I am down as of today 22lbs and 6 inches!!! I am on the road to success and reaching my goal by next summer!!

This is the only diet that works for me. I am able to enjoy life and go out. I do not feel like this is a diet. It is a life change. I give all the credit to Dr. Fortino and his excellent staff. His office is clean and his staff will accommodate all your needs. !!! I greatly appreciate the patience and his understanding in the weight loss process and the struggles we all go through. I would highly recommend Dr. Fortino. You will not be disappointed.

The diet is great and the place is great but the people are the best great service with the friendly service I wouldn’t go any where’s esle ❤️
I started going to Dr. Fortino in June of 2016. I was at my highest weight ever, had tried every diet under the sun and ended up on his doorstep. His easy going demeanor and practical view on weight loss really resonated with me. I found the program immensely easy to follow after the first week. When I returned after 2 weeks, I was thrilled that I had lost 14 pounds! A few weeks later I introduced exercise back into my life and continued my weight loss journey and healthy lifestyle. I have lost over 50 pounds on the program and still check in with Dr. Fortino every month or two to maintain my weight. He is a wonderful doctor and I have referred many of my friends and colleagues to his practice and all have great things to say about the program, and the staff! I highly recommend Dr. Fortino and his awesome staff to anyone who wants to get healthy!
My husband and I are new patients and were very happy with our visit with Dr. Fortino and his staff in Turnersville. He and his staff were friendly and made us feel "at home" and comfortable. Dr. Fortino met with each of us for an exam and spent time discussing our individual diet and exercise plans which are both very easy to implement. We are very happy we took the opportunity to see him and work toward getting healthier!
Dr Fortimo is a great Dr for weight loss and makes you feel very motivated and glad to be there . I recommend to all who are struggling with weight gain to seek him out . You won’t be disappointed .
I absolutely love Dr. Fortino and the entire staff, I've been coming here on and off since 2012.
Well, you all already know how I feel about Dr.Fortino. Aces in every way.
Everyone in the office from the front desk women to Dr. Fortino are courteous, discrete and knowledgeable. They cater to your specific needs. I highly recommend making your appointment with Dr. Fortino!
As life goes for many people, we often get so engrossed with raising families and growing our careers, that our focus on health gets pushed aside. In my case, I had been a highly competitive athlete for many years in my youth. But over the years I gained weight as I stopped working out and realized I needed some help. I visited Dr. Fortino who motivated me to get back into the gym and guided my back into a healthy life style. I dropped 35 lbs in a fairly short time. Stop thinking about losing weight and just go see Dr Fortino and get it done .
I'm so glad I found Dr. Fortino. He is the one of the best doctors I have met. He is so kind, he listens to you concerns and always willing to help. He gives you pointers of what to eat and what exercise is right for you. The very first week I lost 11 pounds and when I hit a plateau he encouraged me to keep going. I have been going to the doctor since the middle of Feb. 2018 to now and have already lost 50 pounds. His staff are all wonderful.
Dr Fortino is easy going and easy to talk to. His office is a judgment free zone. He wont waste your time. Months of working out and eating clean with no results led me to his office. It's been worth every dime.If you are thinking about buying supplements save your money. If you have them throw them away. He will never try to give you something you dont need. His office space is nice as well.You may look at your budget and say you can't afford it. YOU CAN! Your body is a temple. INVEST IN IT! Forget those over the counter supplements with the pretty packaging and sexy labeling. They are WORTHLESS.I only paid 60.00 for my second round of meds and shots. Ive spent that on one bottle of supplements that never helped me.His services are affordable and the drive is worth it. Dr. Fortino you are the man and I am your fan!Now... I'm off to chik-fil-a.
Love it here!!! Dr. Fortino puts a new spin and way better energy into weight loss!! Staff is also amazing!! Thanks for all your help!! 😁
I went to Blackwood/Turnersville office. Everyone was super polite and non-judgemental. I like that you were called at your appointment time and were in and out. If you follow the rules and are committed to the plan provided you will be successful. I went for maybe two months and I stopped due to travel issues but I lost a decent amount of weight with Dr. Fortino's guidance. I would highly recommend.
Dr.Fortino told me how to eat portionally and what foods would help me with my weight loss. Also hydrate your self with water
Dr Fortino and the girls are amazing! They will help you reach your goal and provide excellent service with all your needs. I use the Liposhots and love them. I have worked with many of their clients so I get to hear directly from them about their experience, and all of them same the same thing..." They are great!, I love them" That says it all. Also I see the results that their clients get and I love seeing happy people....hats off to all of you at Dr Fortinos!
Dr. Fortino is great. I love how he keeps you encouraged on your weight loss journey, even the times that you feel you are not doing well. Very calm and warm demeanor. Would highly recommend.
Excellent service gives u great advice N it works lost 46lbs would recommend
Started going to Dr. Fortino in April 2017, lost 38 lbs. in 8 months.. Great doctor and very understanding. He will give you everything you need to get back on track. The office staff is exceptional and always pleasant. You will not be disappointed .
Dr. Fortino and his staff are like family! They truly care about how you are feeling. They educate and motivate you into a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and exercise. I highly recommend them!
Dr. Fortino and his staff helped me lose some holiday lbs - I feel great, look better and have more energy!!
I have ben a patient at this office for about three months now,the location is easily accessible,Dr Fortino is well experience with weight loss and nutrition I have wonderful results from his plans and the service is wonderful
Dr. Fortino, helped me to get my weight under control. I'm a old high school and college athlete, use to eating just about what ever I wanted to. As I got older I didn't change those eating habits food kept building up fat and my age didn't keep up with my weight loss. So I gained more and more weight and exercised less. Dr Fortino worked with me and helped me get my blood-pressure and food consumption under control and added years to my life. But he explained to me the weight that I put on in the last 30 years isn't going to be lost in 30 days. It's something that I have to be willing to work for. exercise and eat healthy, less fat and sugars. I support Dr. Fortino 100%, I'm glad I met him. Benjamin
The staff is always so friendly and has a smile. I few years ago I brought up maybe getting Botox and Dr. Fortino said I didn't need it but he'd do it if I wanted it. He is very honest and does what's best for the patient. He's not out to take your money and do unnecessary procedures. That's hard to find.
AMAZING!! Fortino is super nice! Love his staff!
Warm, kind and understanding.
Dr Fortino and his staff are really great!! They make me feel so comfortable . I felt like it was impossible to lose weight but his program really work. I highly recommend his program !!!!!
Dr. Fortino AND his staff are simply wonderful. You feel immediately at ease with them. Dr. Fortino explains everything and answers all your questions. I had excellent results while working with Dr. Fortino. You will look and, more importantly, feel better.
Went in today to see Dr.Fortino,haven't been in since October due to family issues,although I gained from not sticking to my plan and seeing the doc,he was very kind and didn't judge.im excited to get my weight on track and I know he can help me because he always does.
With Dr. Fortino I have lost 45 within the last three months. I've could never have done it without his guidance and encouragement. I know he will be there when I reach my goal and beyond. He's more than than a Dr., he's a good friend. I highly recommend Dr. Fortino
Dr.Fortino is a stand up guy.Not only is he a great doctor , but he serves the community well through my organization Unity in the Community.In addition to that , everytime I showed up to his office Doctor Fortino would treat me like family and give me sincere advice about my health. Usually , other doctors would push you off to their assistants , but Doc takes the time out to speak to every patient.Thank you Doc for being who you are.
Amazing doctor who genuinely cares about you. The staff is amazing and make the total experience 5+stars! I have lost 25 pounds and have kept it off off!!!
The Best Doctor I know!!!!!Seeing him, counting my calories daily and exercising regularly.....I must say this works for me. Highly recommended.
Dr. Fortino and his staff are/were very nice, helpful, and motivated me to stick with my plan and meet my goal. Not only is his products affordable but they work....of course along with sensible routine meal and workout plans Thanks for life!!!
Dr. Fortino is very professional, patient & extremely knowledgeable. He takes a common sense approach to weight loss which makes the patient feel good about themselves. This approach reduces the emotional eating some patients may have. I rate him a 10 to any & everyone who would like to lose weight....., Pat Dennis , Lansdowne, PA.
Always friendly and helpful. Appointments never hard to get or rushed. Never a long wait!
Love ❤️ the staff n especially Dr Fortino who keeps it 100...Now that I stopped smoking the weight is trying to add on..But not for long because I'm going to get my fat fighter...lol
I've been a patient of Doctor Fortino since 2010. I've lost approximately 82 pounds. With his treatment and excellent advice I have been able to keep the weight off. Occasionally during Christmas season I might gain a few pounds, but nothing that cannot be taken Ken care of at the attention of my doctor. My life has changed dramatically, now I'm able to play at the pace for my grandchildren and last as long as they do. Spending more time with my family and friends has been something I cherish a lot, but without my good health I won't be able to last too long. I give thanks to Doctor Fortino and his caring assistants that have always been able to listen to me and give me the care I needed. Today I still visit my doctor, for the assurance of my health and fitness safety. No regrets here. My family and friends and I are all happy I chose Dr. FORTINO as my management weight doctor.
I've always struggled with my weight but I was able to hide it due to my height and the clothes I wore. Dr. Fortino and his staff were so welcoming and made me feel like I had the support I needed to look and feel the way I wanted! He guided me on proper eating and exercise habits. He kept the motivation high! I highly recommend him to anyone who asks!!
Dr. Fortune and staff are friendly and caring. Easy to get an appointment and never a long wait. However I definitely lost weight!!!
Being middle aged and finding myself 15 to 20 pounds more than I've ever been, led me to seek out a diet doctor. So I quietly made my appointment. To my surprise, I found someone who genuinely cared about me and my well being. I was grateful that diet pills were not thrown at me...instead, it was all about education. Educating me on what to eat, how to eat, the reasons for it, keeping a log for self awareness which only helps in choosing what to eat and the true importance of exercise. So to think you will take diet pills, lose the weight, keep it off and all will be well is not the truth. The truth is Dr. Fortino will help you learn about yourself, your good and bad habits along with suggestions on how to change the bad, the importance of protein versus carbs and keeping life balanced with exercise. It is more than a year later and I am still maintaining my weight, exercising 3 to 4 times a week and have an energy level that puts my kids to shame! I did not have to be there weekly or even monthly but when I needed guidance on how to take myself to the next level, he was there with the encouragement and direction needed. If you are serious about changing your life style for the better, then you should make your appointment without delay!!
I was referred to Dr.Fortino by a friend many months prior to my first visit. Not knowing him, I was very skeptical. After my first consultation I was at ease. Dr.Fortino and his staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr.Fortino has but a plan in place for me that works. Have I fallen off the wagon? Yes, but I acknowledge it, take responsibility for it and Dr. Fortino gets me right back on track. Tracking my foods and timing of certain nutrients has made a huge difference in my weight loss goals while still gaining strength. Dr.Fortino Knows Weight Loss...
Dr Fortino is great! He really is encouraging and supportive while you are working towards your weightloss goal. The office staff is very warm and welcoming. Highly recommend!
The Friendliest Staff ! The Doctor takes his time and explains each step it takes to lost the weight and keep it off !
Thank you Dr. Fortino for everything! Your staff and your program gave me a new sense of hope and a new outlook on weight loss. It is possible, you just have to see Dr. Fortino to make weight loss possible for you.
Dr. Fortino and his staff are nothing but kind and very helful. The weight loss program was a push in the right direction for me! I have seen results and enjoy going to the office to hear the bell ring (which means you're down lbs).
Dr. Fortino's New Jersey office has the same staff as their Philadelphia location and his team is always a pleasure! As always, I am treated with respect and always taken care of. Dr. Fortino's program works - better than weight watchers and any other diet program. Even if I have a bad week, I am always given encouragement. Losing weight with Dr. Fortino has been the best decision I've made. It's a commitment to not only lose weight, but also a lifestyle change!
I am not one of Dr. Fortino's patients, but I can tell you he is a caring, genuine, stand up guy. I am part of non profit organization known in the South Philadelphia area. This past Christmas I reached out to Dr. Fortinos office to see if his office wanted to be apart of my Christmas telethon for families in need in the Philadelphia area. Without any hesitation he and his staff jumped right on board with me. They provided many families with toys, gift cards, clothing, etc. Robert and his staff are the sweetest people you will ever meet and I'm sure, if you are a patient or become a patient you will agree. Like I said I am not a patient, but Dr. Fortino and his staff are very involved and care for our community. The same way he cares for the community is the same way he cares for his patients!Samantha Regalbuto
I didn't think Dr. Fortino's Philadelphia office couldn't get any better, so when I visited the South Jersey office (due to my own schedule), I was shown that the caliber of care, staff, and motivation was just as incredible!
Dr. Fortino is the most attentive doctor I've ever had the pleasure to experience. His undivided attention and his patience is extraordinary. The program is easy to follow and I am already down 5 lbs!!
Best Doctor In Pa

Great weight loss doctor actually the best in the city
I went to Dr.Fortino after my battle with cancer which after my chemo I gained 30lb. Dr.Fortino gave me a menu that I was able to follow and in his office I purchased his boost drops(they are loaded with vitamins) b-12 shot for 6 weeks encouraged me to exercise daily even if it was for thirty minutes. Two months later I am twenty pounds lighter. Dr.Fortino doen't shove meds down your throat and push you out the door he evaluates his patient and directs his patient. ❤ The best doctor in philly!!!
Dr. Fortino was excellent. Non rushed appointment. Took the time to explain everything in detail about his diet plan. Appointment was at 1pm and i was seen at 1:05. (Never had a doctor actually see me on time before). I followed his simple diet program and dramatically lost weight. I would highly recommend him.
Best doctor in Philadelphia!!!
Doctor Fortino is the best!
