What People Say About Dr. Ernest Vina, MD
Reply
Dr. Vina is a young, fit, personable physician who's been very successful. Unfortunately, he also lacks empathy and seems to think everything under the sun is a matter of losing weight. Do your muscles & joints burn? It's because you're fat. Are you constantly fatigued? Then exercise. Unable to sleep or stay asleep due to pain? Join a gym. Never mind that you weren't always fat, or that one short bike ride can land you in bed for days, or that you eat less than 1K calories a day You're just fat.
