New Jersey Weight Loss
In July 2013, Dr. Fortino opened a second location in South Jersey. This new location in Washington Township, N.J. is 20 minutes from the Walt Whitman Bridge, just off the Atlantic City Expressway. The roughly 2,000-square-foot Washington Township, NJ office is three times larger than the Philadelphia office and offers the same innovative treatments and state-of-the-art equipment.
In addition to being board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Fortino is a flight surgeon for the New Jersey Air National Guard, 177th Fighter Wing, located in Egg Harbor Township, N.J. He currently holds the rank of lieutenant colonel and provides medical care for the military members of the 177th Fighter Wing.
Dr. Fortino describes his approach to wellness as a “lifestyle overhaul.” He first looks to help patients understand the root cause or causes of their weight gain. He also determines factors that could impact the weight-loss process such as disease, illness or limitation of movement, stress, and “bad habits” such as overeating, stress eating, and poor understanding of general nutrition. He then tailors a custom plan, which often includes significant lifestyle adjustments. Because ailments such as diabetes and high blood pressure go hand in hand with obesity, patients in Dr. Fortino’s care tend to achieve more vitality and a better overall quality of life.
“It is a big change because we are creatures of habit,” he says. “People don’t like to make change. A person must be willing to let go of their expectations, ego, and pride. That change must come from within. But I break it down quite easily and tell them that this is going to require hard work. What may seem like a sacrifice, in the beginning, will become the evolution of successful behavior. You will not have sacrificed anything but bad health and habits. Weight loss is a big part of any medical practice. Being an internist, I concentrate on the whole person.
I am a big advocate of supplements and injectable vitamin therapies as well as amino acids such as L-Carnitine because of its ability to break down fat that can be utilized and burned for fuel. In addition, my patients benefit from Glutathione Treatments or as I call them “The Master Antioxidant” which helps to remove toxins, heavy metals, and free radicals from the body. Let’s face it most people are busy and tend to neglect their health until they are faced with a major health crisis. Most people come to the South Jersey office very de-conditioned. They cannot run a city block, cannot do two pushups. I want people to become lean, mean, fighting machines.”
Dr. Fortino’s South Jersey practice focuses on treating men suffering from Low T or Low Testosterone levels. Male patients often feel stigmatized or ashamed to visit a doctor for weight loss. In addition to weight loss, he offers injectable vitamin and amino acid therapy, Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) or Low T, and custom anti-aging treatments. Dr. Fortino is an exclusive provider of Boost Lipotropic Oral Drops and Reboot Glutathione Oral Drops. These drops, which are absorbed under the tongue, contain essential vitamins and amino acids that enhance the fat-burning process and promote detoxification to help patients shed excess pounds. The drops have become hugely popular due to their effectiveness, as evidenced by the fact that Dr. Fortino has shipped them to patients as far away as Miami.
