Dr. Meena performed very thorough bloodwork and assessed the state of health of multiple systems in my body and their interaction. I gained a lot of clarity about my various symptoms and an understanding of how to manage my health and well being. I learned a lot about diet and nutrition as well. I appreciate the natural and wholistic approach to health.

Someone I knew recommended Dr Malhotra To me and said she was fantastic. I had been looking into finding a doctor that practiced functional medicine and I happily discovered that Dr M did. I began working with her in June of 2019. I tried many diet plans Over the years but could not loose any weight. After working with Dr M for close to one year I am finally back to a weight I have not seen in 18 years. It is very exciting! In addition to weight loss I am also no longer taking medication for high blood pressure and meds for inflammation for my arthritis. This is not a diet, it is a way of eating Healthy for the rest of your Life. I definitely would recommend this program to anyone trying to loose weight and become healthy.

I came to Dr. Malhotra’s practice as a 67 year old fairly healthy woman. I have always been pretty active and have been eating a plant-heavy diet for many years. But I felt that something just wasn’t right. It was very challenging to lose weight, and I felt I was always on the brink of getting sick. She started with an extensive battery of tests that revealed leaky gut and other issues. Through her diet approaches, I healed my gut, altered my eating (eliminating white flour and most dairy), and have sustainably lost 15 pounds. My middle section feels normal again, and my BMI is now in the healthy range. The path forward is clear and achievable. I feel better about my appearance than I have in 15-20 years. I would recommend this approach to anyone serious about improving their overall health. It isn’t an inexpensive program - but I consider it to be one of the best investments I’ve made.

Dr Malhotra is great in addressing your medical issues in a holistic approach. She take a series of medical lab tests (that is not offered by your average doctors), to determine your dietary and supplemental needs. I appreciate Dr Malhotra for her ability of not covering up medical issues with the temporary bandage approach of prescription medicine that causes other medical problems. I was able to lose 13 pounds within 1 1/2 months by eating and taking the recommended food and supplements suggested by Dr Malhotra. Thank You GOD for bringing Dr Meena Malhotra into my life. Thanks Dr Malhotra for helping to make me a healthier me.

Dr. Malhotra, Irina, and everyone at HealNCure have been patient, kind, and encouraging. You have to be ready to make the changes required to follow their suggested program, but it has been worth it. After a lifetime of struggling with my weight, it finally affected my health and I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes. Dr. M's personalized program has resulted in almost 40 lbs. of weight lost in 6 months, and my glucose, insulin, and cholesterol numbers have all significantly improved. Everyone in the practice is very kind and helpful, and I am grateful to Dr. Malhotra and her staff for all their time and attention to my personal health needs. I would recommend this to anyone who has health concerns related to their weight.

Dr M is patient, kind and knowledgeable and her program gets results. Unfortunately, the products and supplements she requires you to use are not covered by insurance and are quite costly. I am choosing to make this investment in my health, and seeing success, but it is a financial hardship for me. The doctor, however, as well as the entire staff, is excellent.

Dr. Meena Malhotra is so good, that beeing a doctor myself and a worst patient, I am delighted to visit her office every week or every month now. I feel better, have more energy, lost wt, getting my figure back, enjoying the professional grade supplements. The treatment may seem expensive at first, but very cost effective in a long run if you already spending a lot on diets and supplements. I have seen improvement in my health in a short 2 months, and should of come here 5 years ago honestly!

Dr. M will listen to you and fight for your health like no one else will. When I met her, I was living a nightmare. I had seen 20+ doctors over many years, and lived with a certain level of daily misery. Not only did she diagnose me with Crohn’s disease, but she has treated my chronic illness & cheered me on for over a decade now. She taught me how to use nutrition, medicine & natural products to improve my health year by year. I live a full, beautiful life because of her unrelenting care.

Dr. Malhotra is the most attentive doctor I have seen. I was suffering from chronic issues and seeing multiple specialists, but no one was able to match the level of care that I receive when I see Dr. Malhotra. She was able to solve many of my health issues without putting me on harsh medications by discovering the root cause of my problems instead of masking the symptoms. Because of Dr. Malhotra, I am now able to live an active, healthy lifestyle that otherwise seemed unattainable.

Dr. Malhotra has been my doctor since 2014 when I went to see her for an alternative treatment for my diabetes. Fast forward to 2018, it is being controlled due to her comprehensive care management program that focuses on plant based diet, life style pharmaceuticals, lifestyle and neutriceuticals. An overall approach to total wellness that did not just focus on diabetes but preventative, physical and mental well being

I respect and admire Dr. Malhotra's passion and expertise. She fully explains reasons behind any issues I may have and the treatment. Her approach toward preventative care is effective and essential. In a world where a pill is too easily prescribed for lifetime treatment and often has negative side effects that only lead to a never ending cycle of problems, it is reassuring to have Dr. Malhotra who is passionate about getting to the root of an issue while effectively and permanently treating it

I am 52. After gaining a lot of weight due to career needs, my health, vitality and most importantly, my marriage was suffering. Dr. Meena Malhotra at Heal n Cure gave me a one hour appointment after I attended her free educational seminar about Hormone Therapy. I felt the staff was very professional. I was explained the results of the blood work. I have had my second Hormone treatment in about a year, and it has made a big difference in my energy, vitality and has put my life on track!!
