Do it! – I am 32 and decided it was time for a real change. I had dieted and tried everything, and slowly got 10 pounds off over the period of 1 year. Well, when my Fiance proposed to me, I decided to get some help. Boy, am I glad I did! I made an appt. through Nesha, who was super sweet and helpful. I met with Dr. Kelley and his wife, Sherrill, and they both helped me get on a program that was customized just for me. I exercise regularly now (love my chart, it really helps!), and eat 6 protein rich meals a day, so I am not hungry. I recommend if you have been saying "maybe tomorrow", do it now. Nearly 20 lbs lighter for my big day, I am so happy I found Physician's Way and the amazing team that works there.
Thank you for such a nice review. I love to see brides lose weight and get in shape for the big day. Glad the chart helped, we've been giving them to everyone and we are getting a lot of positive response. It is so hard to record workouts and food but it works!
Having Trouble Getting Motivated? I have an answer. – About two years ago I decided it was time for me to make a change in my appearance. I was not happy with my weight. So I began my journey in the weight loss world. I had set my goal to lose about 30 pounds. I was able to lose the first 10 pounds on my own. But as always, it becomes harder after those first few pounds. I decided I could use some help. I went to Physician’s Way. Through their help and guidance, I was able to reach my goal. Unfortunately, this past year I had some health issues which caused me to slip and I gained some weight back. I continued to go to Physician’s Way. Even though I had gained some weight back, they continued to provide excellent guidance and encouragement. They have never given up on me. I am happy to say that due to their “sticking by” me, I am now once again on my way to achieving my desired weight.
One of the great things about Dr. Kelly’s program is that I eat 6 small meals a day! I’m rarely hungry. You ask yourself, how can you lose weight eating every couple of hours? Well, I couldn’t believe it would work but if you eat the right foods (which he will go over with you), you will see results in the first week.
They are not about scolding if you gain weight back; they are about encouraging you and believing in you!!
If your desire is to lose the weight but just can’t get in the swing of things, go see Dr. Kelly, when you leave from his office you will be motivated!!
The greatest thing for me is that I have bonded with them and feel that I am blessed with a wonderful friendship! Thank you again to Dr. Kelly and his beautiful wife Sherrill and his great staff at Physician Way!
The Best Way To get Skinny! – I Love everything Physicians way has to offer! I live an hour away from their office and I dont mind making the Commute to come visit! I have struggled my whole life with weight, and Im only 20! I seriously have tried everything! I even tried some of the best selling weight loss products out there, such as Nutrisystem, and weight watchers! But they only lasted a short time! and I couldnt seem to lose more than 10 pounds! Finally one weekend we went away to the coast and a friend told us about how her sister had been doing a weight loss program. And that was my turning point. I decided, what the heck, I am going to look up a doctor in Austin, and get the real Help and guidance i needed to finally get in shape! Thank god I found physicians way! I was borderline diabetic, and i had High Cholesteral, weighed 185, and a heighth of 5'2...AT 20 YEARS OLD!!! Thats awful! I have now made a life change! I work out all the time...and i enjoy it! I also eat much healthier and much less than what i really thought was a serving, and i Still get fulfilled! I Have lost about 35 pounds and 3 pant sizes! I feel great! I am still working on my goal of 50 pounds...but Id rather it come off slowly and STAY OFF!!! The staff and Doctor Kelly and Physicians way are very knowledgable about everything health related and very supportive! I love that if i happen to go in for a visit and havent lost very much, they arnt going to scold me, ( that would only make me not want to go back), they are just gonna ask how you have been eating, and what we can maybe do to change it, so I can lose the weight! The best part about it all, is that i can still eat everything i Want (in moderation)...even a snickers and a dr.pepper!
Stellar Results!!! – I wasted over 5 years with diets and clinics and meds to no avail until I saw the Physician's Way Weight Loss sign at the intersection of S. Lamar and Bluebonnet. The sign caught my eye - a slim figure with LARGE pants holding them out as if to say "meet my new image". I thought "What do I have to lose" literally. I made the call and left my name and number but didn't expect to get a call back...so soon! The friendly receptionist took time to answer my questions and I made an appointment. I didn't really hold much hope - one question put to me at the first appointment was "Why are you here?" Bluntly I said "I'm miserable". By the time I left my first appointment and all the cheerleading of the staff saying 'You can do this' I felt more inspired than any other attempts to diet and exercise. Dr. Kelly's motto for his program was to eat lean, clean and green and at least walk every day if you can't make it to the workout facility. Sounded too easy but after just a couple of weeks following his program and with the help of some very safe supplements I was well on my way and I'm not stopping for anything. I'm not hungry and don't have the old cravings that crashed my attempts before. I have lost 25lbs and hope to loose more to finally get to my ideal weight and body mass index. It seems like a miracle and I have told so many others struggling to please try this system - just do it! - go see Dr.Kelly. His system works!
SCORE!!! – I was pushing the heaviest I have ever been in my life. Struggling with my weight where it just went up and down I had pretty much just called it quits. Until a friend had mentioned this place to me...
I was a bit hesitant and nervous about coming here at first. After the first couple of minutes in the office I was put at ease. Speaking with the team 1 by 1 was just so comforting, and not so "scary and judgmental" as I had expected.
Dr.Kelly is very understanding and very informative in his advice and his answers. From "why" to "what will this do", all my questions were answered and he made sure that it was to my understanding. He is very informative and just easy to talk to. Not to exclude, but his wife Sherril is quite amazing as well. Seeing her and speaking with her every week (during weigh-ins) is great! I am always at ease and never hesitant to talk about how my week is going. Even Neysha, the receptionist, is amazing! The ease that I feel starts from the second I walk in, to the second I walk out.
I have to say, this has been one of the BEST decisions I have made in my life. As of now it has been just about a month since I've started seeing the team- I have lost 23lbs with the advice and motivation given to me. I am very pleased with the results and anticipate continuing to come here. I see results and feel that I am a walking example of what the team here can do. I will continue to tell my friends about Dr. Kelly and his team, and how AMAZING they are and what a pleasure it has been to see them and talk with them.
An incredible find. – For several years I had been looking in the mirror every few months and saying, “wow, I’m the fattest I’ve ever been”. I had developed some health issues, including a couple that were costing me more than $600 a month in prescriptions. The final straw was when I asked the doctor how long I would have to stay on the prescriptions. He said, “For the rest of your life if something doesn’t change”. Basically I had eaten myself into poor health. I knew I had to do something and I knew that I probably wasn’t going to succeed on my own. About 15 years ago I had some pretty good success with one of the well-known chain diet companies. I just remembered that I didn’t like the high pressure, low service approach. A quick Google search turned up Physician’s Way. Hmm, thirty something reviews, almost all five stars. These guys were either really good or had lots of friends writing the reviews. Anyway, after reading reviews of all of the other places in town, I knew Physician’s Way had to be the first on my list to visit. They were a little hard to find, but they’ve since replaced their sign, so you shouldn’t have any problems. I went in the office expecting to get some information and ask some questions before hitting the next place on my list. My wife can tell you that one of my many flaws is that I take forever to make decisions on almost everything. Sherril and Nesha were very nice and spent time with me explaining their program, giving me details about their business and answering all of my questions. I was impressed that Dr. Kelley was a former ER doctor and was board certified in Bariatric Medicine among other things. I was also impressed that their system included a physical with blood work and an EKG. (Please, if you’re losing more than a very few pounds and you’re not going to use this program, see your doctor first to make sure you can do it safely!) They fully disclosed the costs for the physical, follow up visits, etc. When we finished talking, Sherril thanked me for coming in and said goodbye. As I turned to walk out, it struck me that something was missing. Where was the “What can we do to earn your business?” There was no “Today and today only we can get you going for 20% off”. That was it for me. I turned around and asked what I needed to do to get started. They gave me a form to have my blood work done, took a small deposit, and I was on my way. I’ve been going to their office once a week for the past 3 ½ months. I also get the B-12 shot once a week. It’s optional, but I wanted to do everything I could to help guarantee my success. I see Doctor Kelley once a month. I’m really happy with both Dr. Kelley and Sherril’s level of knowledge in all things weight-loss related. All of this sounds pretty good, but wouldn’t mean anything without success. Here’s how I’m doing.
I eat 6 times a day and I am rarely hungry.
I’ve lost 25 pounds so far which puts me half way to my goal.
Almost every part of my life is better. I think more clearly, sleep better, tolerate heat better, keep up with my 9 year old, and I feel great about my accomplishments so far.
I’ve been able to stop taking my prescription medication and move to over the counter equivalent drugs. I’m hoping that further weight loss will enable me to stop taking them as well.
With Dr. Kelley and Sherril’s help I’ve been able to find food that I really enjoy that works for my calorie requirements. They have worked with me to design workout programs that work for my fitness level and abilities. They are never judgmental and always have an answer for any problem I might be having (and I’ve had a few).
I am confident that with Physician’s Way I have the tools and techniques that I need to get me the rest of the way to my goal.
We hope that you will always feel comfortable coming in to see us and we all wish you continued success on your journey. For all of the nice things that our patients tell us, and that we read here in reviews, I always try to remind our patients of this: the weight-loss, renewed energy, improved health and self-esteem are well-earned rewards for their day-to-day consistency. We believe in the path that we shine the light down, but it is YOUR effort that has bought you all of the benefits and results. Thanks so much for the kind review. We wish you all the best for continued results and great health!
The start to a better healthy life :) – i had a dream a few weeks ago that i was over 500lbs and i woke up crying...i knew that it was a sign for me to get my act together and stop saying im going to do it and just DO IT! This week i did just that...i made my appointment on monday for the 1st....i was so happy and ready before i even saw Dr. Kelly...i felt like time was just going so slow and i wanted it now. i walked in and i felt all my worries and fear of keep being overweight was gone off my shoulders because i knew that moment today was my day. I will lose 100 pounds by this time next year because i will have them in my life to help me every step of the way. everyone is so sweet and just wants to help you get to a better healthy life. im so happy that i found this place and i wish i could find people this great for my family and friends back at home that could use this. i cant wait for next week when i go in and see them and weight in :)

Physician’s Way TEAM has change my struggle to a new way of eating and exercising. From the receptionist to Dr. Kelly, I have been cheered along to way to losing 38 pounds. Everyone in the office is very knowledgeable and professional. They offer weight loss tips and strategies to help you as an individual. Physician’s Way truly understand there is no” I” in team when it comes to losing weight. THANK YOU!
It is truly inspiring to all of us here at Physician's Way, to watch as our patients progress not only towards their weight-loss goals, but also change their day-to-day behavior and lifestyle. Everyone here at the clinic wants you to succeed and you truly have done just that. Our hope here, is something a-kin to the message in 'It's a Wonderful Life' with Jimmy Stewart......we want you to succeed, so you can influence all of those around you (family, friends, your children, etc...) to also live the healthiest and most fitness-focused life possible. If that can happen, it is really a win-win situation for everyone and it is a positive, wondrous thing that can spread and touch the lives of more people than we ever imagined. We are glad you chose to come see us and we (our TEAM at Physician's Way) are so proud for all you've accomplished!.
All the best for long and continued success!
good deal – Physician's Way isn't for everyone, but it worked for me. Lost a lot of weight, keeping it off, great staff, good counseling from Dr. Kelly. Overall a great assistant to get weight off.
I am excited that our program worked for you. I often wish our patients 'good luck' in their efforts, but caveat that by telling them that 'luck has very little to do with their success.' Your success is assuredly related to your taking the information we gave you and doing something with it. Results, in most cases, are always preceeded by Action. Our program can work for anyone who is ready to make a lifestyle change. We are not about short-term or quick fixes. We want to help you improve your fitness and your daily nutrition, so that weight-loss is a natural ongoing by-product of your new healthy lifestyle. In the process of accomplishing these things, it is quite common for us to also see improvements in blood pressure, blood glucose levels, cholesterol and lipid levels and a decrease in dangerous risk factors which may affect longevity.
Congratulations on your success and thanks for your kind review.
Thanks, Physician's Way – Back in June of 2009, about a month after I moved to Austin, I'd decided, well, that I'm sick of being fat and wanted to lose weight. I wasn't sure where to start, however, and knew I would need guidance. I searched online and found this place -- the fact that it was so close to where I lived was a plus.
I'm glad I made the call. Their plan is pretty easy to follow and their staff is friendly and encouraging, as well as helpful with suggestions on how/where to exercise or food you can eat. I've lost almost 70 pounds thanks to their help.
We are very proud of you and what you have accomplished. You are a great example of someone who has truly taken ownership over your ability to accomplish a goal. You have held yourself accountable in everyway, by following our recommendations, coming in for weigh-in's regularly and most importantly making a decision and sticking to it. Keep it up!
Thanks so much for your commitment and for your kind review:)
