Dr. Michael Temkin provides weight loss services for all types of patients at his San Ramon facility. Whether patients need to lose five pounds or 100 pounds, LeanMD® offers the structure and support needed for sustainable results. As the creator of the medically-supported weight loss program LeanMD, Dr. Temkin utilizes a three-phase system to help patients safely and sustainably achieve their goals with the most up-to-date medical, pharmaceutical, and nutritional support.

A board certified internal medicine physician, Dr. Temkin added a focus on weight loss six years ago to help his patients overcome weight-related issues like heart disease and high blood pressure. “I’ve found the best way to get people to their optimal health is to concentrate on specific, sustainable goals,” he says. “We’re a primary care practice, so we deal with each patient on a one-on-one basis and hold their hand throughout the entire process.”

Dr. Temkin also offers an FDA-approved procedure called CoolSculpting®, which uses controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells. “We’re the only clinic that incorporates a weight loss program with the CoolSculpting procedure,” he says. “Once we determine what a patient wants to accomplish, we can develop a treatment plan that’s customized to their body and produces lasting results.” 

Company Philosophy

“We treat every patient the way we’d want to be treated: fairly, respectfully and with a lot of support. Our goal is to build long-term relationships with our patients, and we believe that if we listen closely to their needs and show them we truly care about seeing them succeed, they’ll become dedicated patients for life.”

"It is a program that worked for me. They give you a lot of help in terms of diet and shopping guide. When I go to Trader Joe's I do use the guide a lot, it is becoming more common sense to me now, I liked that. I liked the fact you commit to going every week, that is what I needed. A lot of people don't want to do that, if you don't go, you still pay whether you go or not. The other thing that worked for me were the appetite suppressants, they really jump-started the weightless. I have a soft spot for LeanMD."

"It worked for me. Most people do not want to spend the money or dedicate themselves to a program like this because it is limiting. I have heard every reason in the world why people are not going to do it, what I tell them is, it worked for me and people notice. I carry the business cards with me and do hand them out. I have told so many people but have had no one go that I know of. It is a lifestyle change that needs to happen if people are overweight, especially if it is affecting their health. The motivating factor was knowing I was having knee surgery and I wanted to look different."

"He has a fantastic bedside manner, he doesn't ever make you feel as though you are rushed, and he is always willing to spend some time with you to make sure you have clear understanding."

" I think he is calming, if you are upset he is very reassuring, almost like a family member talking to you, he reaches out and gives you a hug. My mother is going to be 93, she has had some tears and he is quick to step over and give her a hug. My mother, husband, and I all go to him. We have gone to him since 2000. We all love him. He is the best we have ever had."
