I first went to Dr. Hoddinott because I believed perhaps my last chance at weight loss was surgery. It wasn't. Dr. Hoddinott steered me to the right track and I've lost 50 lbs. in two years; something I'd never done previously. It was quite a feat taking into consideration all of my disabilities. I've found him to be personable, helpful, and at times, quite humorous. He truly cares about my health and he is doing everything within his power to assist me. I have found him to be non-judgmental, and always encouraging. This doctor has changed my life forever! I would highly recommend him to anyone who is obese.
