Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.
Most primary care doctor will prescribe.
phentermine is not a big deal and is FDA approved for weight loss
However, I would ask your doctor about a new drug called saxenda.
It works better for weight loss and is not controlled
