"I focus on chronic conditions of

metabolism including prediabetes,

diabetes, overweight, and obesity,

Fatty liver, Lipid Issues,

Hormonal dysregulation,

Autoimmunity, and GI conditions"

"I believe health embodies living with energy and vitality, having control over pain or discomfort – mentally, physically, emotionally; and aging gracefully without disabilities".
Dr. Donna

Never in my wildest dreams. . .

"Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could lose my gut. With Dr. Donna's encouragement, I diligently followed every instruction. After just 3 weeks a repeat blood test revealed that my fasting glucose dropped down from 170 to 99; my weight went from 226 to 203; blood pressure also dropped to a level that I was able to stop my blood pressure medication. Even my shoulder and knee are better. I can honestly say how grateful I am to Dr. Ficaro for making me a new me. If I was a betting man, I’d bet on Dr. Ficaro making a healthy me.”
