My children and I started seeing Dr. Erica Francois in 2017. She goes above and beyond in terms of her expertise, consideration, and attentiveness to her patients. Although she is aware of the challenges associated with weight loss, she does not make you feel bad if goals are not accomplished. She is not just a phenomenal doctor, but also a wonderful supporter. Every person who enters her office is not only greeted, they are also treated of great importance. I want to express my gratitude to Erica and the rest of the team for everything that you do. Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Dr Erica Francois for taking the time to talk to me not at me! I started your wellness clinic back in 3/2023 in efforts to continue reaching my weight loss goal. I am deeply grateful for your compassion, skills and caring heart. Every visit, you always bring positive energy, and keep me well informed on tips and treatments available to maintain wellbeing health and fitness. You tell it how it is with a smile! I am proud to say, it feels so great to be able to walk into a clothing store or order online items you like without returning them (lol). Dr Erica, I know how hard you’ve worked and continued blessings to your flourishing business! Kudos to your staff as well!
