“I am quite pleased with the outstanding diagnostic skills exhibited by Dr. Julie Monica on my behalf. I came to her struggling with extreme weight loss and digestive issues like GERD. She recommended a test that ultimately revealed I had low pancreatic enzymes. Since these enzymes are vital, this meant my body was not getting much of the nutrients despite all my efforts to gain weight and be healthy. We are now supplementing with vegan enzymes because another test she recommended brought to light the strong likelihood that I have alpha gal syndrome, a tick-borne disease. This means I have to avoid meats like pork, which the typical enzymes are derived from. She listened–really listened–as I told her I thought the pork-based enzymes were making me sicker and sicker.
Now I am feeling much better and hoping I can thrive with the vegan enzymes as well as her continued counsel on food choices and vitamins to recover from years of malnourishment. I told Dr. Monica that I felt like she had saved my life because I cannot imagine where I would be if she had not thought outside the box and considered the testing that got to the bottom of my health issues. These health issues had been overlooked by other doctors and have greatly impaired my quality of life. Knowledge is power, they say, and now I am optimistic about my treatment plan.”
“If you are looking for a professional, caring and informed Nutritionist then Dr. Monica is the person to see! I began working with Dr. Monica in June while experiencing severe reflux issues and weight loss. I had seen several doctors including a gastroenterologist, ENT, PCP and a pulmonologist. At the time no one was able to provide a solid diagnosis but it was suggested I see a nutritionist. From my first call with Dr. Monica it was evident how well educated she is in her field and how concerned she is about helping her clients. The guidance she has provided has significantly helped me improve my overall health. I am gaining weight and my reflux issues are well on track to being under control. Her positive attitude, encouragement, and enthusiasm has truly helped to encourage me as I address my issues. I’m very grateful for all of her help and feel that it has had a dramatic impact on improving my health and wellbeing!!”
“Working with Dr. Monica has been a very positive step for me in managing my weight and in managing some of the issues I face due to my weak autoimmune & gastro symptoms. For years I could not understand why I was not only not able to lose weight but kept gaining weight. This was particularly perplexing since I was eating very healthy. The life lesson I learned from Dr. Monica was that you can be eating healthy, but it might not be healthy for you. Who would have thought that eating asparagus and avocados (and many other vegetables) were wreaking havoc on my stomach? Her guidance around nutrition what to eat, what not to eat, how much to eat and when to eat has resulted in a very healthy weight loss and in putting most of my autoimmune & gastro issues at bay.”

“It has been over 10 years and countless GI doctors, and numerous tests and a previous nutritionist with no results. I have suffered with stomach pain and discomfort. I have spent many frustrating hours researching and trying different solutions on my own, none of this helped me to feel better. My symptoms became part of my every day, going out to dinner, attending social events, traveling, even daily outings were complicated and frustrating. I assumed I would never find any answers.
From my first meeting with Dr. Monica, I knew we were on the same page. She talked about all the things I had researched and listened to my symptoms and frustrations. From our consultation, she believed she could help me, and a plan of action in mind to apply. Dr. Monica is knowledgeable, kind, easy to work with and truly interested in my issues. She cared about my health. Finally, I had hope.
Under her guidance, within a few weeks, I was beginning to feel better for the first time in a very long time. Dr. Monica educated me and guided me to having a healthy gut. She worked with me through the healing process, to recovery. I am now at the reintroduction phase. The healing has been an ongoing process. It is hard work and sometimes still frustrating, but well worth it. Feeling better gives me the patience and continued hope for improving my daily life even further. I am forever grateful.”
“I was referred to Dr. Monica from a psychologist that my 12 year old son had been seeing. He was suffering from anxiety. I had stated my concern about his diet and moods. The psychologist recommended Dr. Monica. I called and got an appointment in a timely manner. She spoke to myself and my son at length. She discussed foods he liked, didn’t like and asked him in depth how he was feeling. That was Patrick’s last appointment, which he loved!! I went back every week in the beginning and we tweaked his diet. Dr. Monica explained why changing his diet was necessary and doable, even with a picky eater. She gave a honest estimate and said he would improve 30%. All naturally!!! I was committed. The next meeting she looked into vitamins and supplements for him. I was impressed how much time and research she did finding the best ones for my son. We always reported progress. We examined what was working and what wasn’t. She offered suggestions and was always interested in the outcome. I am so pleased to have found Dr. Monica and I would and do recommend anyone to see Dr Monica for any issue or malady they are suffering from. She is awesome!”

“Dr. Monica’s treatment and advice has significantly changed my health and overall mood. Since beginning treatment with her, I have felt better than I have in almost a decade. I now also have hope and feel confident that I will continue to make a full recovery from my irritable bowel syndrome.”

“I am a sixty year old female who struggles daily with Hypo-Thyroid. I have tried every diet throughout my life and had to virtually starve myself to lose even ½ lb. I have been a patient of Dr. Monica’s for the last few months. To date, I have lost 25 lbs.
Dr. Monica has gone above and beyond to devise a specific health plan according to my individual body make-up and likes/dislikes of a food. Dr. Monica suggests, reviews and implements a simple health plan to fit every individual, taking into consideration prescriptions and your past health history. She recommended vitamins and nutrients according to my health presentation. Most importantly, Dr. Monica listens to my individual needs. In closing, Dr. Monica is compassionate, educated, and a miracle worker!”

“In short, we worked out a plan of foods I could eat and liked and not have pain. And things I could eat to keep my protein up. She gave me supplements that literally made my digestion stronger. My Colitis cleared up and as time went on following the plan I got better. I continue to follow the plan and the different phases of supplements that give me continued and on-going relief. Dr. Monica had a real solution and a plan. – Thanks Doc.”

“I found Dr. Monica and then started to follow a completely different diet. I learned about different types of foods and carbohydrates and how best to eat them. Following this made my gastro problems almost completely disappear. I Have to say, all of my complaints improved. The best part was that once I felt better I then asked Dr. Monica about weight loss. With not that much more change she said I would lose weight with a little time. I have to say it fit my lifestyle and I stayed on it every day. I am now 30 pounds lighter! I am going to keep going! See you next month Dr. Monica.”
– Carole W., Monmouth County
“Dr. Monica not only helped me lose the extra weight, but she helped me with sleep issues, getting off pain medication as well as just becoming generally healthier. She speaks in terms a layman can understand and I absolutely felt she cared as much about me a person as she did about me as a patient. She is a very sweet, thoughtful and caring individual and I highly recommend her, whether you feel you need to lose weight or you just want to be a healthier, happier person.”
