Going to dr. marlowes was the worst decision i ever made. I have spent $300 there plus the blood work price and show no results. He gave me 2 medicines which make my mode so bad and always nervous "not jittery". the first month before the lab work results he gave me a diet and after the lab work resutls, he gave me the same diet. after another month, my weight stalled and when i called to ask the dr about my problem they never answer me back and when the answered the phone, they said the dr. needs to see you to discuss your issues. he need me to go and pay another $100 with no result. He does not even had the fat scale to check my body fat. Do not waste your money
Dr. Marlowe has been with me throughout the toughest battle of my life and that is my weight! He is a possibility machine when it comes to how to get you to lose weight and I never felt guilty about my circumstances, just supported.
This is not meant to offend, but there are only so many hours anyone in medical school can stay up, study and learn. But I looked at his data, a few other doctors (they were a little jealous of the success rate), and I chose him because he had published his success. After being a patient, I said to my mother, who became a patient, he knows so much that he is a freak of nature, how did he learn all this and when Oprah finds out about this guy, he will be the next billionaire.
I have a Ph.D. and I wanted the data he has published, because peer reviewed data matters and a lot of others in the same industry have great commercials, but how do they back those claims? Did the product work for me and at the end of the day, I had to get honest about all my attempts and all the products and say it was not working for me. As a result, I considered medicine because of my experiences in a Medical School summer program, where I did the first third of a semester in a Medical School, and I say all of this to say that, he is the real deal in a weight loss industry that has many people and products that do not work.
With all that said, my experience of how Dr. Marlowe runs his office has been great. During my first visit as a new patient, his nurse said, "You are going to love him!" In other words, his receptionist Jane is very sweet, and informed of all the services he offers to help cut costs. Finally, Dr. Marlowe’s assistants are quite knowledgeable of their tasks.
Just give him a try, when you see that diet failure is no longer an option, only success!
Very satisfied and I feel great!! Dr. Marlowe is the best!! Couldn't be happier with my results. Not like every other doctor that is out there to make a buck, he truly cares about his patients health and takes the time to sit and talk to you! Robbie and his front staff are extremely helpful! Can't wait to continue my weight loss journey with them! If you are serious about losing weight and feeling better, it's a no brainer, Dr. Marlowe's weight Loss Clinic is the place to be!! Thanks again Dr. Marlowe and the friendly staff there!!
Finally, after going to three doctors in Charlotte, Dr. Marlowe is definitely the best. He was able to regulate the medicine and discover why I was having such a hard time getting the rest of my weight off! His staff is friendly and easy to work with and they are always quick to get back to you if you call with a question. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue. Thank you, Dr. M for finally making this work for me!
I've been going to Dr Marlowe's for two years now and have been very happy with the results. He takes the time to answer questions I have, to work with me and my meds so we achieve the results we want and most importantly he makes me accountable for what I eat and my exercise. I have been able to stop taking my cholesterol, GERD and decrease high blood pressure meds and I do not need to sleep with my CPAP machine. Janie and Robbie are both awesome people. They are always happy and glad to see you. I have had a great experience there and will continue to go because this will be a lifelong fight for me.
I decided to start seeing Dr. Marlowe in November 2010 before my wedding in may 2011. He helped me lose 30 lbs in that time. Prior to seeing Dr. Marlowe I had done weight watchers for several years. Everytime I would lose the weight with weight watchers I would gain it back and have to start all over again. I read the other reviews about the staff, but I find them to be quite friendly with me. Also, I don't think that Dr. Marlowe is necessarily in a rush, but he does have a preconceived notion of how the visit is going to go and he doesn't really veer from it.
I have found Dr. Marlowe to be very straightforward with me in my weightloss efforts. I very much appreciate his medical-driven approach in holding me accountable and in providing me with knowledge focused on improving my overall health. I am very pleased with my results, and I would recommend him to friends and family!
If you are serious about losing weight then I would highly recommend Dr. Marlowe’s Weight Loss Institute. It is sad to see some of the reviews, as I have found the staff very friendly. Maybe the woman at the desk could be more open but each of us has our own personalities and she is probably a bit shy rather than rude. I will admit that on 2 occasions I felt I was rushed, but was never spoken to rudely. However, my friend that recommended him had warned me I may not like him the first visit but will love him after that and I have.
As I mentioned a friend had been telling me about Dr. Marlowe for some time, but I just could not justify spending the money just to be put on your typical diet plan which consists of food I do not like. I had been successful on a weight loss program, but then no matter what I did I could not lose anything and started to gain. After trying to switch it up and still not losing anything, I decided to see my regular doctor who only told me to exercise for 1 ½ hours a day. This was unrealistic and it bothered me that my concerns were not taken seriously or checked into. I finally decided I would give Dr. Marlowe a chance and that I was worth the money to at least check it out. He has changed my whole outlook and I am finally back to pre-kids weight and only a little bit more to go for optimal weight range. He looks at the blood work results to find what your individual problem is (if any) and I felt a sense of relief to hear I wasn’t crazy and no matter what I would have tried I wouldn’t have lost the weight without knowing this information. He did for me what my regular doctor did not.
I won’t say it is easy, but I will say it is not hard and I am a BIG picky eater and don’t like much. If I eat something that was not a good choice he will go over why and offer an alternative choice. He doesn’t make you feel bad if you ate a food on the avoid list, but reminds you why it is bad for you in your particular case. He wants to make sure that by time you reach your goal that you have the knowledge to keep it off. Some may think they can’t afford to go to a weight loss specialist, but it is not all that expensive and it is probably the best money I have spent.

to the reviewer who said A terrible mistake. words can't explain how rude this dr was. Waste of time and money he is not worth a penny
you were right!
Dr Marlowe is the rudest person I have ever met -- and that is saying a lot!
The only people who give him positive reviews are his weight loss patients and they are happy because he runs a cattle processing business in which he pumps them full of amphetamines for unhealthy, quick weight loss, so of course they are happy.
He does treat another set of patients which he has no business treating. He has loads of misinformation and is very offensive.
Even more than he is rude, he is gross. Stay away from him.

I did a lot of research before coming to Dr Marlowe and although he was much farther away than other weight loss clinic options for me, I felt that he would be worth it. I have been pleased with him and my results, but I am no longer going to continue because of the poorly run office and the rude office staff. They never answer their phone so you play phone tag trying to schedule or reschedule an appt ( and I can PROMISE you that it is not because they are so busy they cant answer. The clinic is VERY slow). The woman at the front desk is one of the rudest people that I have ever encountered in an office. She has no people skills at all. I gave up and I am not going back. Even though I think Dr Marlowe is excellent, I just cant stomach the rest of the crew and they way they handle the 'business' side of medicine.

I'm an active man, as i was hitting 50 year old mark. The ""heathly lifestyle"" things I was doing was no longer working for me. I was gradually putting on weight.
My first session with Dr. Marlow, he described the partnership we would have over the next months. He had me describe what my ""reaching goal"" was for my loss.
Keep in mind, Dr. Marlow is a real MD. Just like my family Doctor. I was impressed that he needed to back up his suggestions with science. He scheduled me at a lab to pull bloodwork to see what was going on w/ my body. So he was then able to target his recommendations based on science tailored to my own body, not just something out of a magazine. :)
This is working for me thus far because I understand that a main component is the accountability factor. I log my meals, my fitness, so that recurring sessions are productive. I log how I feel based on diet, exercise, and Dr. Marlow can assist. It's been a wonderful back and forth partnership.
I am surprised how easy this is. As long as i'm following my tailored recommend guidelines, I really am surprised how quickly dropping.
I am really surprised how quickly the weight is dropping. My energy level is great. In fact, back in December 2011, when I filled out the initial paperwork with my Goals, i put what i thought would be a ""reach"" goal in time for a cruise i had booked for May 2012. It's just early March 2012, and I've already reached my weight goal!!. So i'm readjusting my goals, with better confidence that i can achieve. I've also booked a 10K race for April!!
Thanks so much Dr. Marlowe!!

Not sure if Dr. Marlowe knew this, but before I came to him, I was seriously considering SURGERY for weight Loss!
I learned something new about myself.... I am one who LOVES carbs. If I begin my day with a carb.... I will end it with a bowl of cookie dough. I find for me (because everyone is different) that protein helps sustain me throughout the day. Since I have been on this program, I am eating much less and drinking so much more water.
Dr. Marlowe will find different avenues to work with individual patients. He is constantly trying to find ways to break the cycle of obesity. I have lost over 40lbs and I have a great time shopping now.
Thanks to Janey (she works the front desk). She is so sweet and is an inspiration to everyone! MB

Everyone there is wonderful. The staff and the doctor. Everyone makes the time to talk with you and answer your questions. I don't understand the bad comments. I realize that this is a doctors office and there might be times where things are a little crazy. I don't think people realize this is a ""Doctors"" office because it's not like a doctors office. Its better than your normal office. I chit chat with the staff before and after the visit. The doctor is great and easy to talk with. I learned a lot of things that I didn't know. It was a great choice I made to go. I have lost a lot of weight.
I started going to see Dr. Marlowe in the beginning of this summer, I was very nervous, when I walked into the office I felt a very inviting welcoming from the office, etc ( fountains, up-to-date magazines, and the weight loss scrap book), I knew I was in the right place to loss weight. The receptionist was very nice, she helped me fill out all of my paper work ( on computers), after I finished paper work. The other lovey lady took me to a room and began helped me start my way to losing weight. Both staff members was great, very nice, and caring. Dr. Marlowe was great, he gave me a diet and explained everything to and made sure I understood it. I am now 32 lbs lighter and looking, feeling fabulous. THANK YOU DR MARLOWE AND STAFF!!
I went to him at the begining of 2010. He rushed through the apoinment and at the end, when he had to go he disregarded my question and just rushed to get out. My later appointments with him he answered my question like i was stupid. He gives me a feeling that he's always rushing to the next person to make money, you know? I have no personal vendetta against him, this is my honest experience with him. I'm in the process of getting a new doctor, I can't feel put down every time I talk to him.I read a review that a lady feels better when she leaves his office: honest;y, this is shocking to hear, because I feel the oposite.
Don't go to Dr. Marlowe if you can find a different doctor. Sad, but true...
Cons: rude, rushes though the appointment, innapropriate jokes

I have truly enjoyed being a client of Dr. Marlowe. He has wonderful tips, the staff is encouraging and they help you to stay focused, even when things may not go as well as you anticipate. I have a very stressful life, so staying focused on me is difficult. This program has helped me to do just that and I don't feel guilty taking time for myself. I have been able to maintain a good weight after being in this program for a short period of time with very little physical effort. I plan to stay in the program for as long as possible to help me to stay healthy. Thank you Dr. Marlowe and staff.
Great place to lose weight no matter if you have 20 pounds to lose or 100 pounds or more this is the place to go.Because he is the man to help you to lose the weight. He help me lose 62 pounds in 6 months an it was so easy and I have been keeping it off for over a year. Because after you lose it he does leave by yourself he still watches you every 3 months or so to make sure everything is okay. He really cares for all his patients and knows where they have been with their weight lose because he himself, has lose 50 pounds, and kept it off for 2 years. And he keep me going because if he can do it so can I.

Every time I visit I would leave feeling so good, because Dr. Marlowe, would make you feel special and important, because he real cares for each and every one of his patients. He wants everyone to meet their goal. He just make me feel so good about myself and I feel so much better about the way I look and the way I feel since I have lost 62 pounds in 6 months thanks to Dr. Marlowe. It was the easiest I ever lost weight before it was like the weight just kept on falling.
Dr. Marlowe's Weight Loss Institute has been a blessing for me. I have been with Dr. Marlowe for 2 months and have already lost more than 20 pounds. I joined Dr. Marlowe's program after haveing a bad allergic reaction to Niacin (Cholesterol Medicine) that my primary care doctor prescribed. I was determined to not take any Cholesterol medicine and sought an alternative method. Dr. Marlowe is the end of the road for me. I have not felt this good in a long time. I've been in other programs such as Nutrisystem, LA Weight Loss, Dr. Tomcho's Weight Management, and numerous other measures that did not have long term success. This program is so simple and so easy to follow the pounds just dropped off of me so easily. I am not even having to work-out as much as I have had to in the past. I believe in this program and highly recommend it to anyone that has been struggling to loose weight and have given up. Try this one last option, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Dr. Marlowe!
