When it comes to the very best healthcare- from annual checkups to more serious health concerns there is simply no one better and no one more understanding at how to help than Dr.Dave Carfagno. His attention to detail,compassion and follow-up is the best I have ever experienced as a long time patient of his practice.

A year ago I experienced unexplained lethargy and fatigue, along with a culmination of tremendous weight gain. I had always been a very energetic person who especially enjoyed running. I am so happy that I made the decision at that time to enroll in SSMI's metabolic enhancement- weight/fat loss program. After the 12 week program, I lost my goal of 25 lbs. and began to feel much more energized. It took hard work but Dr. Carfagno's staff, (including Luke K. and Brittany Z.), was very supportive and well-coordinated with my exercise and diet regimen. I really feel that I experienced such success because Dr. Carfagno also astutely explored the reason behind my RMR results and did blood work to discover the cause as well. Scottsdale Sports Medicine Institute is indeed a unique medical practice and Dr. Carfagno and his staff are the consummate healthcare professionals. This program was very educational and enlightening. I next plan to train and run in the PF Chang's half-marathon with my husband and daughters.

Dr. C, you have helped me improve my health from the first day I walked into your office. I thank you so much for that. I feel better now than I did 5 or 10 years ago. You are a major reason why. Thank you, my friend.

I did the 12 week program with SSMI and was impressed with the depth and commitment that the staff had towards me reaching my personal weight-loss goals. I enjoyed working with them and have found that this really is a lifestyle change and not just a diet.

I had great results from the program. I saw big gains not only in my weight, but in the weight i was lifting as well. I would definitely repeat the program and use a little more discipline next time and see even better results.

The success that I had was because the program allowed me to coordinate the diet, the supplementation,strength training and the aerobic exercise into a daily regimen where the results showed weekly in reduced body fat and reduced body weight.

I feel fabulous. Not only am I thinner, I'm healthier. My cholesterol is lower, I have more energy and now I actually enjoy working out. I have tried many other weight loss programs and SSMI's helped me to learn to control habits, that's it's up to me and not some magic pill or trick. The education and tools given to me help me manage my health and weight.

I started Dr. Carfagno's weight loss program over two years ago. In my initial 3 months I had a lot of success losing weight due to my change in diet and exercise routines. I had tried other plans like Atkins with short term success but I always gained the weight back.

I think the thing that helped me most was when my wife joined the program and we we're both following similar nutritional plans. It made it easier when we were both working towards similar goals.

It's been 2 years and I am still following the plan and enjoying continued success. Everyone at Dr. C's office is great.

Before meeting with Dr C, I weighed 230 lbs, had a 1872 Triglyceride count and a 289 overall cholesterol. After religiously practicing the concepts that Dr. C teaches in the 12 week metabolic program, I'm down to 175 lbs, with a 134 Triglyceride and a 128 overall cholesterol. I've continued to practice the concepts taught by Dr. C and his team and have maintained the same body levels. I feel great. The team at SSMI was awesome.

I am a 58 year old married, female executive that had become complacent about my health.  I justified my gradual weight gain and a lack of energy to age, stress and not enough hours in a day.  My philosophy had become “it is what it is” and my focus was out of focus.  I used to spend all of my time taking care of my family, my work responsibilities and our home and spent little time taking care of myself. The result of my complacency was that I became very sick and spent four days in the hospital.  I was fortunate that Doctor Carfagno and Luke Knowlton took good care of me and got me back on my feet.  

I made a decision to enroll in the SSMI Medical Metabolic Program with a goal of getting healthy and staying healthy.  I just completed my first three months in the program.  This program is amazing and it is different!!  This program isn’t a diet…  It is a program focused on science, nutrition, accountability, motivation and regular exercise.  Doc and Luke customize the program around the patient’s lifestyle and set you up for success.  I am ecstatic with the results and highly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their life.  I appreciate the care and concern that I have received from the team at SSMI and look forward to the next three months on my journey to better health!  My new philosophy is “you can change what it is if you want too, all it takes is a little effort!
