Dr Igel literally saved my life!!! I was beyond morbidly obese and at the literal end of my rope. Dr Igel's incredible care and Experience in the fields of both Endocrinology and Weight management is a rare combo and believe me I swear on a stack of Bible that if it were not for him I would not be alive to write this review right now. Thanks is not enough. I would say if you want to change then go see this man.. he is unbelievable!!!!

All my life I have struggled to loose and keep weight off. Dr. Igel is the first doctor who has been able to give me practical and sustainable strategies and I have now lost nearly 40 lbs. There are no silver bullets and each person is different but Dr Igel's advice was excellent and effective.

I saw Dr. Igel today for the first time. I was SUPER IMPRESSED! He was VERY thorough, listened and explained everything. He even showed me pictures explaining what was going on in my body. For a change I didn't feel rushed. Towards the end of my appointment he asked me if I understood everything that was mentioned. Wish I would have seen him sooner. Soooo happy I went there for a second opinion. He picked up on things that my previous doctor never did!

Dr. Igel is the best doctor I have ever worked with! I initially went to his office for weight loss, but after mentioning to him my other issues/concerns, he referred me to great doctors in those respective areas AND followed up with me about those issues a few weeks later! I am already down 45lbs thanks to him and his wonderful staff, and my other problems are also being treated now too! I honestly owe him a huge debt for improving my quality of life! Thank you!!!

I've never written a review for a doctor, but I felt compelled to because of the great experience I've had. My dad started seeing Dr. Igel and was so successful in his weight loss that he convinced both me and my mother to see him as well. All three of us have had had great results. He doesn't even take my insurance but I pay out of pocket because he's the best. Friendly, professional staff, and Dr. Igel makes each visit very comfortable especially in how explains everything in a relatable way.

I met with Dr. Igel for my diabetic neuropathy. He is very knowledgeable and he took the time to explain the condition as well as various treatment options to me. He is a great and caring doctor, and I highly recommend Dr. Igel. It’s hard to find quality doctors these days, and he really is a great one!
