Stephen Gullo, PhD

Dr. Stephen Gullo is a national bestselling author on diet and nutrition, and has been a frequent guest on numerous television shows. His practice has been cited by the New York Times as one of the leading practices in the nation for weight control.

I have known Dr. Gullo for 20 years and have the highest respect for his interrelationship, talent, and positive outlook with patients. For many it has changed their life by changing their lifestyle, and eating habits. His knowledge of PCOS ("What Else Do We Talk About") and nutrition has helped many of my patients as well, and I thank him not only as a colleague but as a dear friend.
