Chima Nwizu, MD is rated 5 out of 5.0 based on 5 ratings.

When I first met Dr. Nwizu I was 172lbs, with a BMI of 29.99, and recovering from having twins a few months earlier. Despite being the unhealthiest I had ever been, I was surprised when my cholesterol came back at 475. My triglycerides were also high at 663 and my bad cholesterol (LDL-C) 325 and is now down to 28. Several repeats had also confirmed high cholesterol numbers. I had no idea I had such dangerous levels. Working with Dr. Nwizu I was able to get on the proper medication regimen and make lifestyle changes such as a better diet and exercise. Over the course of almost a year I dropped 50lbs! My cholesterol dropped to 108 and my triglycerides to 209. I feel amazing and now I can keep up with my toddlers!

In November of 2021, I was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 and that was the wake up that I needed to take control of my health. Embarking on Dr. Nwizu’s weight loss program has transformed my health in two years. A notable drop in my A1c from 9.7 to 5.1 and shedding over 100 pounds reflect positive metabolic changes. The emphasis on healthy living and making better food choices has given me control of my blood sugar. My cardiovascular health has improved with lower overall cholesterol, lower triglycerides and LDL, and increased HDL. My journey has prompted increased physical activity and self-confidence, bringing a renewed vitality to my life. The program’s holistic approach has yielded significant health improvements both physically and mentally, highlighting the power of dedication and never-ending support from Dr. Nwizu.

My name is Shana and I want to let you know about my weight loss and how I was able to finally lose the weight I had been carrying for years.
I have struggled with my weight for most of my life, the ups and downs of different weight loss programs, pills and products sold on the market. I was able to lose some weight on some of the programs but never learned that my losing weight wasn’t a diet, but a lifestyle change. Although I knew nutrition, I didn’t know how to change my ways of eating to work for my body. I hit my highest weight at the end of 2015. My body hurt and I didn’t have the energy to do things that needed to be done without being uncomfortable. It affected my self-esteem and comfort level with my partner. I finally had had enough, and in January 2016, I decided that if I was going to lose weight, I needed to do it the right way and that way, I thought, was going to my doctor who is Dr. Nwizu at Family Physicians in Greeley, CO. I broke down in tears and said I cannot do this on my own and felt if anyone could help me, it would be him. Dr. Nwizu had explained to me that he was just starting a new weight loss clinic and invited me to his second orientation held at Family Physicians of Greeley west office. He gave me a packet to fill out in depth of myself and my eating habits and triggers. I attended the orientation where he offered different options of losing weight and the health benefits of losing weight. I then had a separate consultation at an appointment to discuss my options that would work for me, and I had bloodwork done to make sure there wasn’t anything medically wrong with me (something I had never done before). I began my plan and regularly had appointments to monitor my weight. I journaled which helped me learn what to eat and what not to eat. I learned to be accountable for what I was doing to help my weight loss. Dr. Nwizu worked with me for a year on exercising and eating right. I was able to lose 50 pounds and have been able to keep it off to this current date. I still check in to monitor my weight with Dr. Nwizu and keep on track. I would have never been successful if it hadn’t been for his weight loss clinic. I am not one to recommend any weight loss program, but I would definitely recommend this program to everyone. The one thing I tell people is that it is not a diet, but a way to make lifestyle changes necessary for permanent weight loss.


Dr Nwizu, You most likely do not remember me, but 4 years ago your quick thinking saved my life. My name is Madison Quarnberg, I was the 16 year old girl that had Lamierre's syndrome in 2013. You were the doctor who thought to run tests, and everyone else thought I had Mono or Strep, or some other random illness. But you caught it and because of you I have been able to experience so much! I was able to go to prom, I was able to graduate High School, on time I might add, and I was able to travel, which is something I had dreamed about since I was a little girl. I have been to Spain, Paris, London and Morocco. In one year, I will have my bachelors in Criminal Justice and I will ship off with the Peace Corps (hopefully). None of that would have been possible without you, and I want you to know how grateful I am to you. You are my hero and I know you have not been given enough credit for what you probably do every single day, and I know that this letter probably does not make up for that. But I want you to know that I understand that without you, I would not be alive right now, and I also want you to know that I am trying my hardest to not waste that life. So than you so much! P.S. I was going to bake you cupcakes, but I wasn't sure if you guys are allowed to eat baked food (for safety purposes) so I hope this will suffice!


My name is Jomarie. I went from a size 14 to a size 7 in 5 months. I had watched myself stack on pounds and I was quickly growing out of my clothes and started buying size 14 jeans. In February of 2016 during my annual physical, I weighed 180 pounds and I was terrified. My doctor referred me to Dr. Nwizu’s Weight Loss Program.
I went to the first class and I was kind of iffy. I had taken nutrition classes in college, but I still didn’t really understand it all. I made my first appointment with him one on one; it really helped me believe I could do it. He discussed my options and after reviewing my circumstances, he helped guide me through my decision making process. I made my choice and he told me that we could always change later if my choice wasn’t working. Dr. Nwizu helped me understand habits that promoted weight gain and I made appropriate and necessary changes. I was able to manipulate my meals each day to achieve my caloric goal. The food and exercise log helped me stay on track and watch what I ate.
There were times I felt like stopping. I felt like numbers on the scale weren’t dropping fast enough and sometimes I felt stuck. But I would make my monthly appointments with Dr. Nwizu and I would use the InBody Body Composition Analyzer and I would see that even though I felt nothing was happening, I really was doing well and losing weight the way that I should be.
I do not really have anything that I didn’t like about the program. One thing I know I could do better is more sculpting of the body. I would like to work more with heavier weights to sculpt my body better.
I love the weight loss program that Dr. Nwizu has going on. He always has other ideas on what I could do for the next month to work on a certain area of my body. I absolutely love the number on the scale; 128 pounds! I feel so much better about myself. My self-confidence has gone up tremendously. I had really bad back acne and now I don’t have back acne anymore, it has cleared up. I like that in the beginning he makes you write what your goals are and those times that I did feel like stopping, I looked back to those goals and thought I have to keep going.
My advice is to try it, don’t give up, and always look forward to where you want to be, because when you have a goal set, you have a direction. I would definitely recommend it! Thank you, Dr. Nwizu.
