Dr Paul Mason developed an interest in low carbohydrate diets in 2011. He then spent hundreds of hours reading and analysing the scientific literature. For the last two years, he has been applying this knowledge in treating metabolic and arthritis patients who have achieved dramatic and sustained weight loss and reductions in joint pain.

Dr Roberto Russo worked as a physiotherapist before studying again to become a doctor. He then obtained two physician speciality fellowships, one in Rheumatology and the other in the field of Nuclear Medicine. He is a highly qualified and experienced physician who treats a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions, with a special interest in non-inflammatory rheumatic diseases, Rheumatoid arthritis and sporting injuries.

Dr Doron Sher is a specialist knee and shoulder surgeon. He holds a Masters degree in Biomedical Engineering and surgical fellowships in Australia, Canada and America. His passion for helping patients avoid unnecessary surgery has led to his involvement in two successful metabolic, arthritis, weight loss and sports performance clinics.

She is an international instructor trainer and lecturer at the Australian Filex Fitness Convention and was a host and presenter on Aerobics Oz Style on channel 10.
