About Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness
Dr. G’s Franchising Companies, LLC spearheads the global franchise growth and operations for Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness, the fastest growing weight loss franchise in the nation. Led by venerable industry veterans David Lopez, Charlotte Russell, Brian Tollefson and Henri Crockett, the South Florida-based company launched franchising in August 2010 and now has 40 clinics open or under development in nine countries, including the U.S., El Salvador, Guatemala, Brazil, Honduras, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Australia. Approximately 250 more clinics are slated to open in major metropolitan areas throughout the country.
Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness program was founded by Dr. Charles Goldsmith in 1994. Over the past 17 years, he has helped over 75,000 patients lose more than one million pounds through his specialized weight loss program. Unlike most weight loss programs where one size fits all, Dr. G’s is a physician-supervised medical weight loss plan that uses its proprietary software and a full medical evaluation including blood work, EKG, metabolic rate, body composition, and behavioral history to create customized plans for safe and effective weight loss. Plans may incorporate a combination of FDA approved medication, herbal supplements, custom meal plan and detailed exercise program to help clients lose weight and keep it off. The company has developed a business model that is replicable worldwide. Its streamlined franchise program provides turnkey support for owners from site acquisition, construction and design, the grand opening, and business oversight and operations.
