If Jan. 1 is marked “start diet today,” on your fresh 2016 calendar, then Doc’s Diet can help.


Whether you’re looking to lose 10 pounds or 100 pounds, Doc’s Diet offers over 17 years of experience and has proven techniques to help you make healthy choices, for life.


Dr. Daryl Wilkins, founder of Doc’s Diet, and his two locations — Turlock and Linden — offer helpful appetite suppressant medication while customizing each visit to meet the specific patient’s need.

“We listen to our patients, personalize what they’re going through and try to instruct them in a way that helps them specifically with their goals,” he said. “We tell them the truth.”

Rather than eliminating an entire food group, Dr. Wilkins and his team guide you to make better choices for your health.


“We take a calorie-based approach, because we like people to use their everyday usual food to lose weight,” said Dr. Wilkins. “If they don’t use what they usually use to lose weight, then how are they going to lose weight when they’re done?”


Dr. Wilkins explains that this is a lifestyle change for his patients and he wants them to be able to continue a healthy approach for the rest of their life, the right way.


“There’s no secrets, no fancy stuff; we provide a well-proven appetite suppressant that has been efficient since the ‘60’s,” he said. “We help our patients make the appropriate changes that we all know we should be making.”


It’s important to Dr. Wilkins, he explains, that his patients understand how their body works on different issues of weight loss.


“Whether that’s exercise or dietary we help our patients understand the physiology of the whole thing,” he said. “And it’s successful.”


Dr. Wilkins believes that the level of expertise he and his staff has sets them apart from other weight loss clinics, as well as their reasonable prices.


“We’re the best at what we do… At one point there were six clinics in CA and we had over 400,000 patient visits,” said Dr. Wilkins. “With that kind of experience we’re willing to help anyone that comes in, the best way we can.”
