What others have said
I've been seeing NP David Newman at Health Plus for about 8 months, and I’m very pleased with my weight loss. I had been trying everything under the sun for the past 3 years to drop the 30 or so pounds I had gained. This program is the only thing that has worked for me. I was able to lose almost 25 pounds and have never felt deprived while following this plan as I have with some others. Also, the only exercise I did was walking (a lot). I generally get bored with gym equipment quickly but have found I really enjoy walking and usually walk several miles each day. David is really understanding and encouraging and a very likeable guy in general. At your first appointment, you'll get a pedometer, a Patient Manual binder full of helpful information, and a Calorie King book. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is serious in their desire to lose weight and improve their health--it really does work.
I have seen David Newman NP at his Beaverton office off and on over the past 3 years. David is a masters prepared licensed nurse practitioner with many years of experience. I appreciate his education, experience and expertise in weight loss and behavior modification. I LOVE to eat, in fact ever since grade school I have struggled to maintain a healthy BMI. David's weight loss counseling, guidance and encouragement have been instrumental in keeping my weight in control. The phentermine appetite suppressant is a big help and a boost to controlling my willpower. David provides guidelines for foods to eat, foods to avoid, fat intake and increasing activity. I missed a couple of appointments this past year due to a hectic life & work schedule (I'm a RN). He was kind and understanding but expressed appropriate concern in holding to commitments . . . Hum, perhaps like food choices too. Go see David, stick to the dietary guidelines, increase activity, and take the Phentermine. YOU will lose weight, change bad habits and feel great: thank you David Newman at Health Plus!
I have only been with Health plus for a couple days now and they have exceeded my expectations! Staff is super friendly and if you have questions, they will help you every step of the way to make sure everything works out! I'm so happy I chose to go to them. They have been so helpful and knowledgeable!!!
This has been the only successful weight loss program I have ever been on. David and Christine are so supportive and when I hit a plateau, they helped me to work through it. I recommend this to anyone who is serious about making lifestyle changes. I have lost more than 30 pounds and have learned many things that I can incorporate into my daily life.
Super helpful if you are looking for medical weight loss intervention. I tried to go to my primary doctor and they wouldn't prescribe medication and I felt I really needed something to jump start my weight loss. I was inspired with my buddy and my weight was having an adverse effect on my health. I started going to health plus in November, I lost 40 pounds by February and have kept it off since then. In addition to the medicine they offer unlimited check in appointments each month, goal setting, and meal planning resources.
I've been meeting with Tim at Health Plus now for just over a month. During that time, I've lost 10 pounds and feel like I'm on the path back to happiness. I think about the food choices I make every day and some days I choose to make food choices that are amazing to my taste buds, but not so much my weight loss. I don't get down on myself for those, I make the choice then move forward. Tim has been an invaluable resource to me. He always greets me with a smile and isn't afraid to stop me in a sentence to remind me that this is about my overall health, not just the scale number. The Phentermine has helped with my portion sizes and Tim has helped with my mindset. There is no better combo than these two!
David is great. I found health plus from a friend also struggling with weight loss. I'm a returning client after I stopped seeing him about 8 months ago. The support he gives, the accountability and tracking your steps really makes a difference. For me, the appetite suppressant is huge. especially late at night. I'm an emotional eater and this medication really helps with sugar and food cravings during stressful/emotional times. Thank you, David, for helping me get back on track!!
I have lost 31 lbs. over the last 9 months! I am almost at my goal. I am very happy with Dr. Newman's program. I've learned that if I watch my fat intake and exercise regularly, I should be able to keep the weight off in the future. For anyone that needs to lose weight and haven't been successful on their own, I highly recommend Health plus!
This is my second time around getting weight loss support after babies and health plus is truly a great support when needing to get back on track with life and adjusting to a healthy lifestyle with kiddos.
Health Plus information and assistance is very helpful. Guidelines for limiting fat intake and regular exercise help considerably. Very professional NP. Considerable difference between Health Plus professionalism and cheer leaders at Jenny Craig.
I joined Health Plus in late Sept. of 2016 and I am very pleased with the services and guidance I am receiving. I can feel a great difference now that I'm shedding the pounds off. I have less pain on my lower back and A1c went from a 6.1 to 5.8 thanks to the Health Plus Team :)
A couple of years ago, Health Plus helped me lose 50lbs and it completely changed my life. The medication helped me curb an insatiable appetite and cravings for fried foods, while the advice instilled in me new, healthy habits to prevent me from relapsing into my old ways. This last summer, I had a foot injury that required surgery and prevented me from exercising. I couldn't even go for a walk. I became depressed and returned to junk food and wine to cope and gained all 50 of those pounds back. After recovering from surgery, I immediately called Health Plus, and they have already helped me lose 15! I am starting to feel like my healthy self again. I recommend them to anyone struggling with weight loss.
The staff is very understanding, patient, knowledgeable, and friendly. Its motivating to see every week just a little bit more weight loss, and they are also very encouraging and understanding if you hit a rough patch. Changing a lifestyle takes time, and I’m optimistic looking forward.
They not only care about being physically healthy they care about you as a person mentally, physically. They ask about all your struggles. Always so cheerful. Zoey up front is amazing, always smiling and brings your smile out. Would 100% recommend to anyone.
Health Plus has been great in helping me along my wellness journey! I “fell off the wagon” for a while and when I emailed to recommit they replied with “Welcome Home” it really does feel like being welcome back without any criticism just support and tools to do well! The team is truly amazing, and the plan works!!
I FEEL STRONG & CONFIDENT-This Plan Is Really Working! I have been struggling with weight issues for over 20 years- losing and gaining the same 30 to 40 lbs. I had to end this self-destructive path I was on. I would definitely recommend Health Plus to anyone wanting to take back control of their life. And I especially love Lanea, the assistant, she is always so positive and makes me smile. After only 13 weeks in I have lost 25 pounds and feel confident that after the last 10 pounds the weight will be off forever!! I may even make it 15 :) Thank you Health Plus
I’m super satisfied with my results and the entire staff is super kind and supportive.
I have lost weight already and the diet is easy and keeps you full. I feel this is the beginning of the rest of my life! Thank you soooooo much!
This is exactly the health plus clinic I was looking for. It has an excellent program for losing weight along with effective supplements. They do a really good job at helping you overcome your challenges. Additionally, they take their time with me every month to answer questions, provide my latest BMI weight, encourage me to set goals and meet them. With this diet I am not always hungry, what a difference this makes when dieting.
I’ve had such a great experience here! Every provider has been encouraging and supportive. Their focus is on sustainable habit formation, not a quick fix. I would recommend Health Plus to anyone!
Best doctors and best staff! They truly are a god sent, this has been the best experience I have had and help me so much achieve and continue my journey to a better healthy life❤️🙏🏼❤️🥕🥦 🥒
This place is fantastic. No judgments from anyone, the staff is very friendly and professional. David helped me reach my first goal of losing all my pregnancy weight in less than 8 months. I would have continued going to Health Plus, but we are moving out-of-state. The weight loss plan he set for me was realistic, very easy to follow despite not having much time to be able to devote to myself because of my toddler/work. To add to it, he sets out daily principles that you can practice lifelong. No starving yourself, no having to buy any special protein powders or products. I would recommend to anyone looking to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Lose weight without cravings!
Health Plus is the best and certainly the easiest plan I have been on for weight loss!!
I feel Health Plus works for me because: One on one consultation. Eating healthy food every two hours. Taking a safe & monitored appetite suppressant. Keeping a food journal (became a great eye opener to my eating habits!). I also become more aware of exercise and how great it feels to get outside, take a walk or get involved in other activities.
This way of eating good healthy food, while incorporating in exercise, is the plan I can and will easily adopt for life. Thank you Health Plus for showing me the way!!

A place to achieve. Finally!!I have been so impressed with the help I have received at Health Plus! A easy environment to discuss a sensitive issue! The program is a real life plan that helps you achieve your goals. With the help of one on one private counseling and a monitored medication It feels possible this time! – Jordan, 53
This place is amazingI have had great success with Health Plus. Their staff is friendly and a true partner in my weight loss goals. With their help, I have lost over 60lbs in 6 months. I am thrilled with the results and could not have done it without their support and guidance. – Antonia, 37
I feel like a brand new personI feel so much better since I started going to Health Plus a few months ago. I feel like a brand new person. I’m 49 years old. I started out weighing almost 190 1bs. Now I’m down to 165lbs. My goal is to get down to 150lbs. I know I can do it. I already feel so much lighter on my feet and have lots more energy. I love all the new healthy foods I am eating. Every time I see my family or friends they say “Jeannie you’ve lost weight and you look great.” I tell them about Health Plus and they too would like to join. I enjoy working with the nurse practitioner who I meet with every two weeks. These regular meetings help me stay focused and striving for my goals. – Jeannie
Affordable and the only thing that worksHealth Plus is an excellent recourse for anybody looking to lose weight for real, even if you never have been able to before. I lost all of my excess baby weight, and my mother-in law lost 40lbs. She is in her 50’s and I just had children….supposedly it’s supposed to be harder to lose weight with those factors in play. Not so. This works, it’s the only thing that has ever worked for me. David Newman is professional, caring, and supportive. It’s also affordable. I saw ads for another person and was shocked to learn it would cost so much $$$ to see him. Anyone can work Health Plus into their budget. New Years Eve is coming, and I can’t wait to push full speed ahead on the program. It’s nice to be ahead of the game for once. Thank you Health Plus!!! – Chrissy “Rebecca Lynn” B.
It just makes absolute sense!I am so pleased with my results! Health Plus helped me achieve my goal and taught me how to change my eating habits. After trying every diet there is and even hypnosis to lose weight, here is a plan that I can easily live with and just makes absolute sense. – Lori L.
I reached my goal
I am so happy with my fast results. I lost 10 lbs in the first 2 weeks and have hit my goal of 30lbs in 3 months thanks to HealthPlus!

I feel healthier and look better
I’ve been working with NP Newman at Health Plus for about 2 years. He has helped me learn how to eat healthier so I am not hungry all the time or craving certain food. I’ve lost weight but slipped a couple of times and he was able to help me understand my triggers so I can break the pattern. I feel healthier and look better than when I started seeing him. If you are serious about making a change to be healthier with the benefit of losing weight and having more energy I would recommend Health Plus.

I would never go anywhere else
I have been working with David Newman, NP and he is amazing! I have tried Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and Nutrisystem, nothing with lasting results. Mr. Newman has helped me overcome many obstacles and he is wonderful. My weight has began to slip recently and I feel like I am losing my will power, but after my meeting with Mr. Newman I feel like my initiative comes back. I would never go anywhere else and I recommend him to everyone. He is truly helpful with meal planning, strategies, obstacles and ideas on things that can help keep me focused and on track. He is not only helpful with diet and exercise but also many day to day problems everyone can face now and then. He is simply the best!

I am so happy I found David Newman at Health Plus
I want to thank David Newman and Health Plus for helping me feel like a winner! Keeping my weight at a healthy level has been a constant struggle since college. I’ve had good years, so-so years, and bad years. In 2012 the struggle to manage my weight was more than I could handle — 50+, aging parents, work-related stress. I threw in the towel. In 2013, I hit my all time highest weight and started to have symptoms of type II diabetes. I felt horrible, drained, disappointed. I was also seeing first hand what long term obesity does to the body and mind with my aging parents. I HAD to do something. I am so happy I found David Newman at Health Plus. His medically supervised weight loss plan was the partner I needed in this fight. I have lost 16 lbs in 4 months. I feel much better. My blood sugar is back to normal WHEW!!! I have the confidence that with his guidance I can lose another 10 lbs.

The cost is much less than so many other things I have tried.
I started with HealthPlus shortly over 2 months ago and down 27 lbs so far. I had hoped to be down 40 lbs in 8 months, but I think I might do in in 4-5 months! In the past, I had tried many diets/pills/fitness plans, but nothing was providing enough results to get me to stick to it. This is been pretty easy with the help of NP David Newman. I visit weekly so I am held accountable for my recent actions. He is full of information and provides great support. Hit a road block? Tell him, and he will have some suggestions to get you through it. I would highly recommend seeing him, as I know that I would be no where near my goal had I not walked through his door on 1/31/14. And the cost is much less than so many other things I have tried. If you are fortunate enough to have medical savings plan, you can probably use that too.

For the first time in what seems like forever I am losing weight!
I am so glad I found health plus. Before going there I had been gaining weight steadily for over a year, no matter what I tried, the pounds just kept coming on. For the first time in what seems like forever I am losing weight! Not only that but to see the percentage of fat decrease and the lean muscle mass increase is an amazing feeling. David is available to help with any questions and has suggestions for any problems.

Thanks to Health Plus I don’t look at dieting, this is a life change for me.
I hate dieting and diet foods which was one of the reasons I started at HealthPlus. I have been going to HealthPlus for over 3 years. HealthPlus has taught me to look at food with a different perspective. NP David Newman’s has made it easy for me to sit down and discuss my failures and successes. HealthPlus has always made me feel like good about myself and my struggles. Over the years I have lost 20lbs but has gained them back when I stopped going. Now I go monthly to maintain my weigh loss and also for guidance on what foods are OK and which ones are not.
Thanks to Health Plus I don’t look at dieting, this is a life change for me.

This program works with your busy schedule.
I’ve tried variety of weight loss programs but as you get older it gets harder to loose the weight you gain. And life gets busy. This program works with your busy schedule and you can integrate everything in your busy schedule, the rest is up to you. No program will work if you don’t put in the effort as well. I also like the fact that there are no quick easy fixes, you loose the weight at reasonable rate (still relatively quickly) if you want to and no gimmicks. David is easy going, laid back and straight forward.
– A W. September 04, 2014
I am so pleased with my results.
Health plus has been so good for me. I’ve been working with Dave for a while now, and I am so pleased with my results. The Health Plus program not only helps you to lose weight, but it also shows you how to make lifestyle changes that will keep you from gaining the weight back. I would recommend this program to anyone who really is ready to make a comment to lose weight and keep it off.
Thank you Health Plus

Mr Newman is a fantastic practitioner who believes in me and has helped me with tools to make me and my life happier and healthier!
I have had the best experience going here! Very friendly and helpful! David Newman is the light at the end of my tunnel! I thought hope was lost when I’ve been told a hundred times by doctors that I’m fat because I’m lazy and refused to help me. Mr Newman is a fantastic practitioner who believes in me and has helped me with tools to make me and my life happier and healthier! I couldn’t do this journey without him or his wonderful assistant Lanea! Thank you both so much for helping me take charge of my life! I’m forever grateful!

I look forward to my future life style of activity. Thanks Health Plus.
I have been working with Health Plus Associates for the last 6 weeks. During this time I have lost a total of 16 pounds. This is good news, but what’s more positive is I have accomplished this without feeling hungry or deprived of eating. The program is forthright and easy to follow with a number of food choices and I have found fruits are my friend which is making my food choice selections that much easier.
I realize this is a journey that I have just begun. My goal is to lose 65 lbs. so I have a long road ahead and realize there will be some speed bumps along the way. I remain confident I can sustain this regimen with little difficulty. I look forward to my future life style of activity. Thanks Health Plus.

I plan on staying on this new way of eating forever. It really works!
Health Plus is an easy location to find. Plenty of off street parking. Receptionist is very friendly and kind. David is very knowledgeable in weight loss do’s and don’ts. The meds work well and I have had no side effects. I plan on staying on this new way of eating for ever. It really works!
If you can’t decide if this is for you, just go talk to David to learn the basic principles of the program. You’ll be hooked. – Linda L.

David is super nice and very helpful if you struggle with eating too much and not getting enough exercise. He’s given me encouragement throughout the process and has made me feel good about myself. I started with Health Plus in January and have already lost 16 pounds. I feel more energetic and don’t have as many food cravings as I did before. I would recommend HP to anyone who is struggling to lose those extra pounds gained during the holidays or just some extra weight you want to shed off.

Love this experience!
Health Plus has taught me how to eat right and why certain foods are good or bad. That is something I will take with me forever. I really appreciate the one on one counseling and encouragement. The medication is a great help for getting off on the right foot, and learning how and when to eat. Love this experience!
– Eva P.
I would definitely recommend!
I had a great experience at this clinic. The staff is very kind and approachable. The office is easy to find and access. The receptionist is very knowledgeable and is able to answer any questions you have over the phone or through email, so you know exactly what to expect. I would definitely recommend!

Feeling better than ever, confident, and ready to buy a two piece for summer!
I had a life changing experience with health plus. I’ve been a overweight my entire life, always struggling with starting a new diet each week that I’m unable to maintain. Health plus gave me a nutrition plan that was exciting and easy to follow. The medication they prescribed helped immensely with my cravings, also. I went from being able to eat an entire pizza on my own to not even flinching at a basket of hot fries for the table. I’ve been able to make such better choices and I believe everything becomes a habit… on days I forgot to take the medication I still wanted a salad for lunch. Feeling better than ever, confident, and ready to buy a two piece for summer! Don’t hesitate and make an appointment with HP. – Rachel D.
