Dr. Vash, through his private practice in Century City, has worked with patients for over 30 years to achieve safe, significant, sustainable weight loss. Dr. Vash comments: "The weight loss industry has become so lucrative and marketing has made it seem too easy to lose weight that people with serious weight issues are often lead down a path that robs them of their money and their hope. I want to use my blog to educate people about what works and what doesn't and perhaps as important, what the long term effects of excess weight are on our health."

"With Dr. Vash's help I have really come to realize that there is no magic potion for losing weight but that I do have the power to change my life while I safely lose my excess pounds." — Michele L. (A reader of Dr. Vash's latest book "Lose It and Keep It Off")

“Dr. Vash’s insight and knowledge about the ‘psyche’ of being overweight is the answer to demystifying every heavy person’s question: Why don’t I lose weight when everyone else does? His program (A Matter of Fat: A Physician’s Program) helps you realize that everyone can lose weight with his plan, and lose it at a safe and healthy rate.” — Margaret B. (a patient of Dr. Vash's in Century City)
