In 2010, he completed his Internal Medicine residency at Drexel College of Medicine at Hahnemann University Hospital and joined Temple University Hospital as a clinical assistant professor.

George Sedrakyan, M.D. chose a career in alternative medicine because he believes in natural treatments and the ability of the human body to heal itself. He takes the time to listen to his patients so he truly understands the various concerns and goals each patient may have for their own treatment options.

The major difference between alternative medicine and traditional medicine is that doctors who practice the alternative medicine tend to take on more of an advisory role, leading a patient every step along their journey toward weight loss and greater wellness.

George Sedrakyan, M.D. has worked in the field of weight loss medicine for several years. He became interested in the HCG diet after much research and seeing the great success that people had with it. As an HCG diet doctor, he provides medically supervised treatment based on your individual weight loss needs. His entire staff is also knowledgeable about the HCG diet and can answer your questions at any time.

Remaining under Dr. Sedrakyan’s care for the duration of your diet plan using the HCG hormone gives him the opportunity to adjust your dosage if necessary and change the plan if you don’t see the results you expect. Medical supervision is also important to make sure that your body tolerates both the injections and the calorie deprivation without experiencing unpleasant side effects.
