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, an online weight loss doctor, 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.

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😊

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.
