" I have always lived a healthy lifestyle but after hitting menopause in my 40's, my body changed and both weight and girth started to pile on and with it, health issues such as high blood pressure, cholesterol issues and a thyroid that was not being optimally managed became a problem. My doctor told me to get use to it as I was now middle aged and I almost did until a guy I knew, who just lost 40 lbs shared information about Dr. Shah and Amari. I was initially hesitant but I threw out all the ideas I thought I knew about health and weight management and opened myself to a totally different experience where my metabolism, hormones, general blood work and TSH levels were all evaluated. Dr. Shah personalized a weight loss program for me with everyday food from my fridge, suggested supplements that my blood work showed low levels and worked with my MD to treatment the T3 and T4 thyroid markers independently. Now 15 months later I am 50 lbs lighter and more important, my fat composition and BMI are perfect, my thyroid blood work, high blood pressure and cholesterol levels are normal and on an aside, because my blood levels have balanced out, I have not been experiencing migraines that where a weekly event. I am truly thankful for the guidance, suggestions and education that I have received by Dr. Shah and the professional and thoughtful staff at staff at Amari. I would highly recommend Amari to anyone who is looking to take control of their weight and their health and then if you then prefer to pursue available spa options, well then those are available too. If you are looking to take control of your weight, health and life, then I would highly recommend Amari and Dr. Shah "
" My experiences with Amari clinic and Dr Shah have been nothing but wonderful. I have used them in the past for weight loss and have returned once I found myself "off the wagon". They have been nothing but supportive and encouraging. I love the fact that it is not a one size fits all weight loss but rather a customized program for each individual. Blood work and metabolism tests are done to give you a profile of what hormones or vitamin deficiencies you are experiencing so that through nutrition and supplements you can lose weight and feel great doing it. Like I said, I fell off the wagon this summer ( too much fun) and returned to what I know has worked for me in the past, Dr Shah and Amari Clinic!!! I also like that all the staff at the Scarsdale location are very attentive. ( I have never been to the Bedford location). Happy Customer! "
" I have nothing but respect and admiration for Dr. Shah and his staff. They are generous with their time, very educational, and helped me to lose 20 lbs. last year. Best of all, Dr. Shah balanced my hormones and helped me through a difficult time during menopause. I cannot say enough good things about this place and how valuable their advice and services have been. "
" Amari definitely is a safe and effective way to lose weight! I've been a nurse for many years so I've witnessed with my patients how dramatically your life changes when taking the surgical route for weight loss. Crash dieting is also never effective and very difficult to do. At Amari I was able to customize a plan with medications and a diet that made sense for me and was easy to follow "
" As a medical professional myself (nurse anesthetist), I know what constitutes a professional, respectable practice and Amari Medical exceeded my expectations. I went to Amari Medical for Coolsculpting of the abdomen and waist area. I had two separate treatments- one for each site. I am VERY pleased with the results! I clearly see and feel a difference in both areas after one treatment. The entire staff is very kind, knowledgeable, and very particular. They really strive for a great outcome and are realistic and encouraging. They explained the whole procedure and it was just as they described. Most of all- IT REALLY WORKS!! I would highly recommend this procedure in the hands of these professionals. They are highly skilled and though it is pricey, it is definitely worth it!! "
" My first encounter with the Amari folks was okay. The marking of placement of the CoolSculpting machine was wrong and so I now have a smooth lower belly but still fatty deposits are visible on the upper belly. The right placement would have been treatment on the left side of my abdomen and on the right side of my abdomen. Now I must pay for 3 treatments in total. Also I had planned on going back for some additional treatment but I was told it would take 4 hours as opposed to the advertised two hours. Very strange and unexpected. It seems it takes two hours to mark up the areas that I want treated and two hours for treatment. The staff is more concerned about closing early than working advertised business hours. And this came from the top! There are so many options in the area. Shop around and do your due diligence. "
" I am happy I reached my goal! I lost thirty pounds and my life has changed completely. At sixty one years old I decided to make a change. I decided to be healthy, learn to eat, exercise, and take care of myself. I accomplished my goal. The program may have seem imposible at one time, but I had the best support team behind me. I had the Amari team of professionals who helped, encouraged and kept me on track. Now I am at the maintenance phase of the program, and I have learned to eat healthy, exercise and to always be conscious of proper nutrition. This program is a gift. Thank you Amari! "
" For the money I paid so far I did not get honesty. They kept asking for more money because my weight kept creeping on me. I was told one thing and got the cool sculpture thing and nothing worked well. I stopped going back for the last 6 months. "
" A great place to lose weight. The people are friendly and very good at their jobs. You'll feel right at home. The program is very manageable and based on common sense. You'll cut your appetite but you won't feel deprived. The program, foods and supplements are not cheap but they are well worth it. I've lost about 35 pounds in four months and look forward to dropping another 15 under the care of Dr. Shah and his wonderful staff. "
