Dr McClendon was awesome and the weight loss program is so easy to follow since its telemedicine. I like the fact that I see her monthly whcih helps with accountability. She is such an awesome doctor. Very approachable and compassionate and knowledgable. I've been seeing her for 1 year now and we've had steady weight loss which I appreciate since I've been dealing with yo-yo diets and weight loss pretty much all my life. I lose weight then regain it fast. Instead, I've had continued weight loss and I'm now in "weight maintenance" as its called. So far been able to keep it off for the past 6 months.
I came to Bari-Med and Dr McClendon from a referral from my Cardiologist. He had said that if I didn't lose the weight I could be a heartattack away from death. That shocked me enough to look into his recommendation of her. I called the office, made a consultation with her and got started on the program. I'm now down 41 lbs and went back to my cardiologist for a follow up and boy was he happy. My cholesterol numbers are down! He said to keep it up.
I'm so excited that I am now at my college weight! After unsuccessful diets and afer weight loss surgery, I regained all of my weight back. I was in a bad space after Covid. A friend who had been seeing Dr McClendon for weight loss recommended that I see her too and I'm so glad that I did! I'm now at a lower weight than I was even after bariatric surgery! I feel so good in my body now! I cant thank her enough!
Dr McClendon was great as all the other reviews have said but working in med admin myself, I have to give her admin staff cudos, especially Marigold. Being in admin I know that insurances are tricky and you have to call them yourselves to find out exactly if Drs are covered in your plan which I did and Dr McClendon is. Marigold was so helpful in letting me know that what they discovered is that certain HMO or EPO plans are the ones that Dr McClendon is not a part of. Once that was clarified, we were all set. Thank you Marigold!
If you have been feeling ignored by other doctors about your weight concerns/struggles, please, please, please go see Dr. McClendon as soon as possible. I was struggling with skyrocketing blood pressure, difficulty losing weight, increasing insulin resistance, and increasing cholesterol all after experiencing some more serious postpartum complications. For years, other doctors intervened in ways that would help incrementally, but not with anything that was really working. Dr. McClendon has been able to support my weight loss in ways that are medically safe for me and effective! She is caring, listens, and truly individualizes supports and approaches. In 8 months of working with her, I have gone completely off of all my blood pressure medications, have lost 75 pounds, and my cardiologist is now taking my other issues more seriously because he is seeing they are not connected to my weight. More importantly, Dr. McClendon has supported me to meet all of these goals in ways that make me comfortable. For example, focusing on non-scale victories and milestones. Please see her! As icing on the cake Ms. Marigold, her administrator, is lovely and communicative and will be able to effectively support you will all things scheduling and billing.
Im so happy! I was 50 lbs overweight and with the help of Dr McClendon, I'm now in the best shape in my adult life at 144 lbs! Before, I was so ashamed of my body, often would hide, not wanting to take pictures. Now, I feel so great, I wanna show it off and Dr McClendon is so encouraging!!!! I've worked hard and I'm so glad she's helped me not only become healthier but I now have such a better outlook on my life and body!!!
Lowest weight in 8 years! Like most people I gained weight over time and gained even more when the pandemic hit. Before I knew it I was up 35 lbs. i saw Dr McClendons reviews and decided to see if she could help . Now 4 1/2 months later I’m down 45 lbs . My high blood pressure is gone too!!
Saw Dr McClendon since I was referred to her by my endocrinologist and PCP. I now see why they highly recommended her . I’m off 3 of my blood pressure pills and diabetic med and down 37 lbs now.
Dr McClendon helped me not only lose the weight but also helped my diabetes. I was on insulin , my blood sugar numbers were 200+ and my hgba1c 13.8. She got me started on a plan that included a low carb diet with the meal replacements, and meds and I cant believe 3 months later - I just saw my PCP and my hgba1c is now at 6.9! My sugars are now in the 90-130s.
I cant thank her enough!
I’ve been seeing Dr. McClendon for a little over a year and I’m down 80 pounds which is the goal weight she set for me. She has helped keep me motivated which has been incredible important on my weight loss journey. She is also patient and easy to talk to which is hard to find in a doctor. I could not be more thrilled with my results and I have recommended Dr. McClendon to my family and friends.
