Cheryl was ready for a change in her life. She decided it was time to take control of her destiny and take concrete steps to look and feel better in her skin.

To help her lose the weight she wanted, Cheryl turned to Primera Slim Spa, a medical weight loss clinic in Lake Mary overseen by Edward J. Gross, M.D., a double board certified plastic surgeon. With the help of Dr. Gross, Sara Schaefer, RN, and the entire Primera team, Cheryl lost 33 pounds in three months and has never felt better.

“The biggest benefit for me coming to Primera Slim Spa has been eating healthier, making better choices, and feeling better,” says Cheryl. “People tell me I look amazing, and that whatever I did, I did the right thing.”

A second generation physician, Dr. Gross is known throughout Central Florida for his expertise in rhinoplasties, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. However, his commitment to helping people change how the world sees them goes well beyond surgery. Dr. Gross is dedicated to helping patients look and feel their best – meaning he wants them to feel beautiful inside and out – so the Slim Spa is a natural extension of his practice.

“If you’re considering any type of weight loss program,” says Cheryl, “it’s great to do it with a doctor because you’re checked on a weekly basis. Dr. Gross, Sara, and the staff have been absolutely amazing. From the minute I walked in the door, I knew I was in the right place.”

What is Slim Spa?  

Primera Slim Spa has become synonymous with effective medical weight loss and leading-edge patient care. The clinic is dedicated to quickly and safely assisting patients to lose weight and keep it off all the while using a custom-designed program for maintaining a positive and healthy life.

The staff at Primera Slim Spa understand that no two individuals are alike, from body type to body chemistry. The clinic supports an individualized path to healthy living based on the patient’s unique short and long-term weight loss and health goals. Their established and measured medical weight loss program focuses on producing sustainable results as quickly and safely as possible.

Every Slim Spa patient receives a custom designed weight loss program including:

  • Custom healthy lifestyle programs for maintaining a positive and healthy life
  • Comprehensive blood panel, EKG and body composition analysis
  • Custom nutritional plan

Cheryl appreciated the personalized attention she received and the continuing interest the Primera staff showed in helping her achieve her weight loss goals.

“I’d never had anyone take so much time to give me considerations, consultations, and choices for things that I wanted to do to improve myself and make me feel better,” says Cheryl. “The staff was always right there to help, and I greatly appreciated all their comments and concerns.”

Sustainable Wellness Through Weight Loss

In addition to providing medically supervised weight loss, Slim Spa features a state-of-the-art wellness center. Slim Spa patients begin their journey with a one-on-one consultation with a trained weight-loss professional to establish both short and long-term weight-loss goals.

The Slim Spa team takes the approach that weight loss is only valuable if it’s sustainable and built around the individual’s needs, wants and lifestyle. By paying attention to these details, they can help people lose weight and keep it off.

Slim Spa offers its patients custom designed vitamins, supplements, and fat burners to help them on their journey. The clinic’s certified experts work with patients to determine the optimum supplements needed to achieve maximum results in the shortest, safest amount of time.

“The plan is great,” says Cheryl. “It works effectively, and you really don’t realize the things you can’t eat when you find a lot of healthy things that you can. It’s all about making the right choices.”

Cheryl is a testament to the effectiveness of the Primera Slim Spa method and philosophy, having lost over thirty pounds in three months.

“I came to Primera Slim Spa because I was ready for a change of life, to feel better, and to be able to work out more,” says Cheryl. “In three months, I lost 33 pounds under their direction and care. I saw an ad for Slim Spa, and when I did, I thought, ‘I have three months before I have any kind of work. I’ll take that time to better myself.’ That’s when I began my weight loss with Sara and the group.”

Living Life to the Fullest

Through her successful medical weight loss journey, Cheryl now looks her best, feels more confident, and wholeheartedly recommends the Primera Slim Spa weight loss program to anyone struggling with their weight.

“Like anything, you have to be ready and prepared to do it,” she says. “If it’s for yourself, make your mind up, get out there, stick to it, and just do it. The weight loss program gave me a better quality of life, of being able to move, to feel better in my clothes, and better as a person. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”
