About Calla Slimspa Medical Weight Loss Center In Orlando
Calla Slimspa was opened in 2008 in the heart of beautiful Winter Park, Florida.

We have become the leader in weight loss for all of Orlando and Winter Park. Our plan helps your body burn fat rapidly, decrease your cravings for sweets and starches, all while feeling great and having energy.

“I understand you have many options when it comes to weight loss in our area but at Calla Slimspa you have the support of someone who is not only a trained doctor but who also understands first hand what it is like to be overweight and personally succeed with this very same program! I understand what my patients are going through every step of the way.
I know what it’s like to “fall off the wagon” and how to motivate myself and others to get back on the right track. Much of the staff at Calla has either done the program or is currently on it. This makes us very well equipped to help and understand, not only professionally but on a personal level as well.
This is what makes us different … and for me there is no greater satisfaction than helping others achieve the same success!”
