Dr. Charous has been in practice for over 15 years.  Because we were seeing so many patients who required weight loss in order to have surgery and improve their overall health we decided to start a weight loss program which in turn created Active Body Wellness.  Our goal is to help clients achieve their weight loss goals and promote a healthy life style.  In addition we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic, lip fillers, facial products and supplements.
