  • Clinical Research Participating in clinical research offers the opportunity of contributing to the understanding of obesity as well trying a new potential therapy. Many of the trials include a lifestyle intervention.

Our history

calla Domenica M. Rubino, MD

Dr. Rubino started her clinic recognizing the need for solid, honest, comprehensive care without gimmicks for the person who struggles with weight – integrating the science of obesity medicine with a practical approach.

Key aspects of this care are respect for the individual; recognition of the potential emotional/psychological impact of weight and co-exisisting medical conditions and need for support; identifying life factors for aggraviting the condition and limiting them; empowering a person's self care; fostering a healthy self-esteem and optimizing medical care resulting in an improved quality of life.
