What people are saying about the One on One Consult:
It’s comforting to know I have a cardiologist monitoring my health so that I can prevent a significant problem down the road.
“I live in McAllen, Texas, where it’s difficult to find a doctor who’s knowledgeable on the benefits of a low-carb lifestyle. Because I battle a high A1C AND high cholesterol, I reached out to Dr. Scher for a consultation to monitor my blood work and develop a plan that will keep my heart healthy and my A1C in check. Before our video-consultation, he responded personally to every question I had via email. When I first reached out, I figured it would take at least a month or more to schedule our consultation, but to my surprise, it was planned just over a week from my initial email!
I like Dr. Scher’s commonsense approach to a healthy lifestyle. He came up with a very-easy-to-follow plan and agreed to review my blood work every 6-8 weeks to make sure I’m on the right track. Because of my family’s history, it’s comforting to know I have a cardiologist monitoring my health so that I can prevent a significant problem down the road.”
He has inspired me to live better.
“Once I was comfortable with the Zoom interface, doctor Bret was easy to talk with and listened with interest to a description of my challenges. I found him open minded to my dietary concerns and his feedback was thoughtful and considerate. I appreciate his willingness to help balance medicines with diet and supplements. I am a fine cook and know the kitchen physics, I just happen to be short in discipline. He has inspired me to live better.”
He sees the WHOLE person and not just one aspect of their health.
In the fall of 2018 I was diagnosed by my Primary Care Provider with Type 2 Diabetes. I was educated enough to know that there was something I could do about it, and set out to change the path I was on by adopting a low carbohydrate/Ketogenic Diet to control my blood sugar. Fortunately, it worked right away- but soon after I discovered that I had some red flags on my cholesterol test results. There is a history of CVD in my family and I was disappointed that I might have to yet again make diet changes but was willing to do what was best for my whole health. After an appointment with a local Cardiologist I felt somewhat confused about how to move forward. I wanted more information and not just a prescription.
I contacted Dr. Scher for a consult because I wanted to confer with someone who not only understood my condition, but who could also give me the latest and soundest advice on how I might treat it and move forward in the best way for me as an individual- not as a statistic. I needed someone who came from a low carb perspective as well as a medical background. My interaction with him was positive, informative and went a long way to making me feel like I could make informed choices without the black and white thinking of well-meaning physicians. He sees the WHOLE person and not just one aspect of their health. Wellness is a journey- and having Dr. Scher along the way is a great way to make the trip!
I cannot adequately express the gratitude and respect I have for Dr. Scher
I recently had a one-on-one Health Coaching Consultation with Dr. Bret Scher. I cannot adequately express the gratitude and respect I have for Dr. Scher. He took the time to consider all facets of my health and really listened to me and my concerns. He was not quick to insist I be on prescription medications, but rather he explored various avenues of suggested treatment/preventative measures I might consider taking…guiding, as opposed to dictating a plan of of action. The consultation was well worth my time and money! Loved his approach so much that my husband and I have decided to work with him long distance.
