About Doctor's Weight Loss Centers
Doctor's Weight Loss Centers (DWLC) was established in 1981 by Dr. Roy Heron in Alexandria, Virginia. With the tremendous success of the landmark practice, DWLC has since expanded to two convenient locations in the greater Washington, DC area.
DWLC is the most comprehensive weight loss program in the U.S. today, without invasive surgeries such as gastric by-pass and stomach stapling. Dr. Heron treats patients as early as seven years old to adults in their 80's. The Heron program is a unique and effective combination of medical care, nutrition counseling, exercise advice, safe medication, measuring your metabolic rate, and easy guides to lifelong weight management without counting calories or weighing your foods.
