The Best Dr. In the DMV

I have been struggling with my weight since I hit 50, but when I tipped the scale at 220, I knew I needed help. Not only was my weight out of control, but I also had high blood pressure, my knees hurt, and I couldn't walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded. My PCP recommended Dr. McClendon and after one conversation with her, I knew that she could help me.

She did one thing that other doctors in her field didn't do - she simply listened. When I told her that something wasn't working or the side effects of something wasn't agreeing with me, we tried something else. She customized a fitness, medication, and diet plan suitable just for me, not some one size fits all routine that I was expected to follow.
I'm sad to say that I'll no longer be seeing her smiling face every six weeks, but that's only because I'm happy to say that thanks to Dr. McClendon I now weigh 140 pounds, my blood pressure is normal, and I'm in great shape! I've worked hard to get here, and Dr. McClendon has held me accountable every step of the way.

Thank you so much for your help!

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!!!

Great Dr

Great Dr. Easy to follow plan and the telemedicine appointments make it easy to stay in touch with her which is important for accountability . That’s definitely helped me to lose 53 lbs and take me to my goal weight.

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!

Finally I did it!

Finally , after 15 years, I was able to get down to my goal weight of 155.  Thank you Dr McClendon! I had tried everything --- Weight Watchers, Atkins, Intermittent fasting, Weight loss Clinics, Supplements and nothing! I would lose 10-15 and gain it right back. Not only that, it was like I would hit a barrier after a certain weight and couldn't go any lower! After doing some research, I found Dr McClendon on Google and read her reviews and thought -- ok this Dr seems legit-- maybe she can help me.

I'm so glad I saw her . Our first visit, she put me at ease and explained everything! Why my body does what it does with weight loss and why certain things work and others dont. She then started me on Phentermine in addition to giving me parameters for a diet and exercise. When my weight hit a plateau, she put me on Contrave, then Wegovy . Monthly follow ups with her kept me on track .  Now I'm the lowest weight I've been in the past 15 years!!! Thank you Thank you Dr McClendon.

Great Experience!

I had a great experience with this Dr. I like the fact that I will be having one on one visits with her -- an actual MD and not a dietician or a Nurse Practitioner, Physician's Assistant or "Coach".

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.

Outstanding !

Dr McClendon has the most pleasant bedside manner, she understands the struggle that being overweight/obese entails. It's easy to open up to her which makes this whole weight loss process easier. She's able to tap into the different aspects of my problems which has helped to me to keep this 59 lb weight loss off . Very happy.
