I visited Dr. Eric Berg’s clinic after watching his tons of YouTube videos and reviews where he talks about health and nutrition.
I was intimidated by how he presented the entire thing in the video, so I wanted to try it.
Dr. Berg also pitched about a free consultation in his videos. So, there was no way to ignore such an opportunity.
He runs The Health and Wellness Center in Alexandria. He takes every measure that is unethical to get clients, which is why he flaunts the free consultation.
It is just baited to attract customers, and once they are inside his center, he goes beyond limits for selling his products.
He pressurizes customers to pay for overpriced products with close to no effect. His treatment programs are designed only to benefit him and not the other party.
They have even monitored their reviews online and paid for posting fake feedback.
This is all because they know that only the positive review can fight the negative comments of scammed customers.
He offers expensive treatment plans and does not offer a cancellation policy which is again a red flag.
If a company trusts its product and genuinely tries to help, it will at least provide a period to reconsider the decision.
However, in the case of Dr. Eric Berg, this provision is not available.
When I visited Dr. Eric Berg for the overweight issue, he asked me to carry the list of foods and supplements I had been taking.
I carried everything as instructed and reached the center on time.

They took my weight and blood pressure and made me wait more than an hour.
After an hour and a half, an assistant doctor observed my case and did a few tests.
After a few minutes, he started talking about my metabolic rate and all the general pieces of stuff I already knew. He further told me that stress was also one of the reasons for my obesity.
He made me pay $1400 for six sessions and was adamant about making the rest of the payment. I was not prepared for any purchases but couldn’t help.
Unfortunately, I could not visit them on the scheduled date and wanted to reschedule the sessions. They never did that.
I wanted a refund and made several attempts to call and email them the request. They ignored me every time.
I contacted the manager, and he reminded me that my agreement clearly stated that the amount was non-refundable. I tried to negotiate. That did not help either.
I filed my complaint with Better Business Bureau and Virginia’s Attorney General’s office.
After that, I received only a partial refund because I did not use their services and was pressured to purchase the plan.
Dr. Eric Berg is a scammer.
