Ramon Garcia-Septien, MD, PA, newly certified to prescribe medical marijuana, assist with opioid abuse

In Miami, Florida, if you own a business that's been around for a few years, that's pretty impressive. South Florida can be a tough place to do business... a lot of places are here today, gone tomorrow. Bad service; no customers... you name it... a variety of dream-crushing culprits can be to blame.

So when your South Florida place of business is entering into its 42nd year of business, that's not only great... that's unheard of!

Such is the case with LeJeune Animal Hospital and its owner, Dr. Osvaldo Perez. And this isn't just your ordinary, run-of-the-mill veterinary: Since 1976, They provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through the latest in-house blood analyzers for immediate results. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house digital x-ray capabilities, hospitalization area, and indoor boarding kennels.

 One medical procedure that the doctor employs is what's known as Dermocell. "This is a new technique to eliminate fat," Garcia-Septien said. "It's a three-step process involving carboxitherapy, ultrasonic and vacuum technology." He said that each session lasts for about one hour. He also performs Amino Acid injections and prescribes a nutrition and calorie-based diet along with appetite-suppressant medication. And sticking to the diet is important. "If you cheat on the diet, you're wasting your time and your money," Garcia-Septien says, adding that his special diet helps patients who are suffering with diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea, among other things. He said that the treatment plan lasts depending on how much weight the patient wants to lose. "If you want to lose 40 pounds, your treatment will last 42 days," he says, adding that after the treatment is performed, patients receive written diet information along with a 30-day supply of appetite suppressant medication. 

Garcia-Septien says that the recipe for long-term weight loss actually is an easy one.

"Losing weight is a matter of knowledge," he says. "It requires a good diet, nutrition, and exercise. We can help you along the way. That’s why we don’t settle for good enough; we go above and beyond for your sake. We exceed expectations for a weight loss doctor and that's why clients appreciate our hard work. Thanks to our weight loss center, we have helped many patients lose weight over the years. You can rely on us anytime for assistance and unmatched expertise."

Garcia-Septien says that knowledge and an experienced doctor work hand-in-hand in creating success... and, more importantly, an educated patient is the type of patient who will keep the weight off once it's lost. And he says that he can help patients lose up to one pound per day for 30 days.

"We never let our clients down because weight loss is our specialty," Garcia-Septien said. "When the patient understands what we can do as your primary care physician, you can rest easy knowing that you made the right choice. Forget about starvation and horrible work-outs."

​In some cases, Garcia-Septien has helped patients lose upwards of 60 pounds... all naturally, all safely. And the post-procedure process also is stellar. 

​"Simply put, you'll feel relaxed and have a lot less fat!" Garcia-Septien said. "It's all about losing inches and pounds safely; that's it. We also supply our patients with our personal lines of natural supplements to further help in the process."

And, another feather in his cap is that he is one of few doctors in South Florida authorized to prescribe medical marijuana. He also is one of the few doctors certified to provide treatment for patients who are struggling with opioid abuse.

Garcia-Septien says that his practice belongs to the American Medical Association of Addiction Medicine. "Here in the United States, after you, as a doctor, are cleared by the authorities who make sure that you have a clear criminal background, you then go to the courts and undergo a very difficult certification test. After you pass that test, then you are qualified to treat patients with opioid addiction and dependency. We help people with medical marijuana who are going through cancer, chronic pain, seizures, mild depression, glaucoma, Parkinsons and Alzheimers... "

He is one of South Florida's premiere family practice and sports medicine doctors.

And, for more than 25 years, he has specialized in treating obese and generally overweight patients. He considers himself a pioneer in this profession, having begun serious and dedicated work with these types of patients when the weight-loss craze begin to kick in.

"When I first see a patient, a complete evaluation and check-up is performed," Garcia-Septien said recently at an interview in his Hialeah, Florida office. "We then calculate the patient's body-mass index (BMI) and set an ideal weight target for that patient." The doctor says that all of his treatments and procedures are medically supervised.

Garcia-Septien said that each patient is provided a nutritional education and supplied with a variety of natural and organic products that will aid in the patient's weight loss program. "Our goal is simple: to help patients lose their unwanted weight and improve their quality of life," he said.
