Dr. William Ferris DC

After over a decade of growing Rochester’s most innovative Chiropractic centers with a dedicated team helping thousands of people reduce or eliminate musculoskeletal pain Dr. Ferris became acutely aware of the connection between proper weight management and it’s correlation to many pain syndromes that his patient base were struggling with.  

The battle turned personal in April of 2009 when Dr. Ferris lost his hero, his Father, to medical complications perpetuated by the need for attainable weight management.  Reflecting on this, Dr. Ferris decided to enter the fight and make an impact for the people of Rochester who identify with the struggle of obtaining their ideal weight and health. Recognizing that his father, like many of his patients really needed a weight loss system that was evidence based while clearly blueprinting a path to long term success, Dr. Ferris decided to create New York Weight Loss. New York Weight Loss now has the sole mission of simplifying weight loss with attainable, fun, and long term, sustainable results. Dr. Ferris believes everybody deserves to live a life of optimal health that is closely related to their ideal weight and free from prescription medications whenever possible.
