Could not be happier with my consultation with Dr Attar.
I had been experiencing disturbed sleep , afternoon fatigue and generally tired during the day . He did a comprehensive blood panel and found a couple things could cause my symptoms. After a diet adjustment and added a few supplements. I feel 100% better . I’ll not he also looked into my ancestry profile and found a genetic marker for a b-12 deficiency that my gender physician never found . As well as looked deeper into my blood work.. I guarantee if you make an appointment and it will be the best health decision you’ll make .

Dr. Attar has been a God Send, to me and my daughter. My 15 year old daughter came to Dr. Attar sufferings from Crohns, struggling to maintain her health. He was gentle and kind and took the time to discuss her complete health history, current symptoms and worked with her to find a complete health plan that would be workable for a 15 year old to follow. With changes to her diet, added vitamins and supplements we have managed to get her symptom free, her lab work has improved and medication has decreased all with in a few months. I look forward to complete success for Alaina and working with Dr. Attar. He truly is a God Send!

Dr Attar was absolutely wonderful. He was able to listen to my needs, and not only treat them but also help me get to the root cause of my stomach issues. He was incredibly attentive and I did not feel rushed at all like I do with most typical doctor office visits. I could not recommend him more!

If you have any doubts that Dr. Ryan can't help you, I'm here to tell you he can. A month ago I was very sick with food allergies and food sensitivities, a month later I feel like a brand new man. You're a great man Ryan, thank you for all you do.

By the winter of 2017 within my lifetime I had been diagnosed with T1D, sleep apnea, psoriasis, rosacea, anxiety hypercalcuria, low Vitamin D and severe osteopenia. A friend recommended I see a Naturopathic Physician, Ryan Attar. I was very intrigued to hear this as not only was I FB friends with Ryan but he was the first person I ever witnessed to get an A1C in the 4’s. What I never knew was that Ryan had had the opportunity to shadow Dr. Bernstein for a few days. I contacted Ryan and made an appointment right away. Ryan’s office was a good 3 hours away from my home but after running in circles for years with ineffective MD’s, the traveling part was of no concern to me. I was shocked to see that my first appointment was over 90 minutes!!?? Normally I meet with an endo for half that or even less but Ryan had an entire team of 4 people asking me questions and getting vitals. They listened to my concerns, focused on these issues and not only did I go back a 2nd time but ended up doing a series of conference calls with them to move my regimen along. Ryan puts a big focus on normalizing blood sugars, diet and exercise. They outlined precise exercises I should be doing for my bone health and even showed me proper form in the office. It was with Ryan, that I for the first time ever and made aware of my leaky gut. Also of importance, Ryan showed me from my test results that foods I ate often were making me extremely sensitive to and causing inflammation. My vitamin D Hydroxy score jump from 30 in December to 78 in February!! Adjusting my diet around the 125+ food sensitivity test, inflammation markers and change in Vitamin D had my rosacea disappear and off psoriasis pharma drugs. Since meeting Ryan, I have not had to go back to a Dermatologist and will never go back. With hypercalcuria, my endo pushed blood pressure meds on me which Ryan strongly suggested increasing potassium. Then there is the anxiety, after years on meds, I am officially off them and have not needed to go back on them. For me its no brainer to meet with Dr Attar who carry out all the same principles and care of Dr Richard Bernstein at a fraction of the cost. He walks the walk and when it comes to his patients personal health be ready as he loves to talk and make sure we have all the information and understanding that we need! I have referred a few people to him in the meantime who have walked away smiling. Do note, Dr Attar never once asked me to endorse him but instead I am just so grateful that I needed a way to express my energy, appreciation and better health to him. Thank you Dr Attar, for improving my health and achieving Dr Bernsteins Diabetic Solutions. Cheers.

I went to Dr. Attar for a second opinion when I was experiencing cardiovascular issues and felt that my primary care physician wasn't giving me the best medical advice for my situation. Dr. Attar helped me create a workout plan to eat healthier in addition to my medications and supplements and I have seen improvement over the past few months. I highly recommend Dr. Attar, he really listens and cares for his patients.

Dr. Attar is smart, kind and one who literally practices what he preaches. My son has Type 1 diabetes and we have learned so much about managing this disease from Dr. Attar. From the science to food and fitness advice, the man clearly knows his area of practice, and we are so grateful to know him.

I went to see Dr. Attar to get help with managing my Type 1 diabetes. Specifically, to get help with following Dr. Richard Bernstein’s approach to managing diabetes using a low carb diet. He is VERY knowledgeable with this approach and offered me tips and recommendations that have been really beneficial to me. He spent a lot of time with me and was very thorough.

I am a 59 yr old woman who could not lose weight no matter how healthy I ate until i met Dr. Attar. I am telling my age because most people think only women in their 20's or 30's can drop weight this quickly and see results this fast. In just 3 weeks I not only lost 21 lbs, but I got my sugar almost perfect enough to have my eyes improve by 32%. My sugar does not go over 105 no matter what time a day I take it! Not to mention I went from a size 22 to a 16. I know now the weight will come off slower but I am so much more healthier and it is more realistic. It was hard to follow my new diet because Dr. Attar told me to eat so many foods the other Doctors told me not to eat. He just kept telling me " so how's that working for you!" I put my complete trust in him because I was so desperate to get healthy and lose weight after 15 years of trying. I knew something was wrong and so many doctors told me it was gas, or I'm old or I'm destined to be 230 lbs. It was so comforting and emotional to feel so much better and not have stomach pain for YEARS! I still have like 40 more lbs. to go and hopefully 3 more sizes to go down but now I have so much hope that Dr. Attar really nailed it for me. I know every person is different but i told a few people to do a few things I was doing and they also experienced most of what I did. Now it makes sense to me why he was telling me this way of eating is the best way to go. I guess I was so depressed and just about given up I could not see how this made sense to me. NOW I see the logic in food. Making progress does not come with an age. Doesn't matter how old we are, we are what we eat. I tell trainers and anyone who will listen to go see Dr. Attar and why his ways work. And did I forget to mention the fact I used to color my gray hair every 4 weeks and now I can go 12 weeks before the grays come back to color! Just a fringe benefit. If we can spend thousands of dollars on all these quick diets, why not spend a few hundred on someone who WILL give you results in more ways than one! I live in Monroe, Ct

Dr. Attar has been a godsend! I started to see him in 2020 for insulin resistance, pre-diabetes and weight issues. He has helped me immensely!! Not only is he an expert in his field, he is very compassionate. He has been able to address my metabolic imbalances in a way in which I am no longer pre-diabetic. I highly recommend him particularly if you are feeling stuck in your current situation.

After my diagnosis I began to look online for information about diabetes. Then I found Dr.Attar from a blog he published in regard to some time he spent with Dr.Bernstein. Just a few conversations with him has taught me more about diabetes than any of the previous endocrinologists I have spoken to. As a type 1 himself, he truly understand the common complications that accompanies diabetes and more importantly, how to mitigate them. I highly recommend this clinic if you are diabetic of any type.
