I’m excited to share my personal review and experience with Riverfront MD. I lost 90 pounds back in the early 2000’s with Hcg injections and kept it off for over 10 years. And then… I had a baby! During pregnancy and breastfeeding, I gained 45 pounds. I decided to take this opportunity to explore the Hcg Diet Plan once again, and Riverfront was my choice for Hcg injections this time around.
I chose them because they were in the USA and were completely transparent, sharing their potency certificates and staff where I could easily see them. Another reason I chose them? They were less expensive than all other USA Hcg sources, which was a huge plus, given the new baby expenses.
About Riverfront MD
Location: The first thing I love about Riverfront, is that they are located right here in the USA, in Florida. They are also a legitimate, FDA approved telemedicine clinic, providing a number of medical treatments through licensed medical doctors and nurse practitioners. Their prescription products are manufactured and ships from a licensed compounding pharmacy also located in Florida.
Services Offered: While they offer programs other than weight loss, they are experts in the Hcg Diet protocol and that is their largest focus. They also offer HGH therapy (human growth hormone.)
Quality: Riverfront works with the FDA to exceed the required safety and treatment guidelines. This includes the purity of their Hcg. By law, Hcg must exceed 92% potency, tested through 3rd party analysis. If this isn’t met, the entire batch must be destroyed. Riverfront however, makes sure that every batch not only exceeds this requirement, but is consistently over 100% in their potency analysis:
My Personal Riverfront MD Experience, Reviewed
I’m planning to investigate and share every possible detail of my experience this time around. that includes testing out my own Hcg suppliers and sharing my journey through my blog. First let me say, that I placed this order as just another patient, without mention that I was the founder of Hcg Diet Info. I wanted to experience their sale, prescription and coaching process as any one of my readers would.
If you are familiar with my blog here, you already know that I am ridiculously strict when it comes to recommending any product or service on this site- I have high standards and an even higher concern for safety. With that said, I can assure you that I have thoroughly researched (and downright interrogated) each and every telemedicine company I recommend for buying REAL Hcg injections and REAL hcg drops online. With that said, I already trust them explicitly and had no concerns with placing an order through them.
What’s to come! I am planning to use each of my recommended suppliers in the same manner. Maybe I watch too much “Undercover Boss,” I don’t know, but I have already found this approach helpful and am excited to share my thorough reviews on all of my sources.
My Ordering Experience
My Hcg ordering experience: I purchased the 45 day kit of HCG injections using Riverfront MD coupon code HDI40 (find more codes and how to use Riverfront MD Coupon Codes here) for a $40 discount on my kit: two 5000iu vials of powdered, high potency Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG hormone) and all supplies. I also took advantage of their $20 B12 injections which are a limited time offer for Hcg Diet Info readers.[wpcd_code id=30029]
Although they offer prescription Hcg as injections and tablets, I chose to purchase the injections because this worked for me the last time around, AND it is what is recommended by Dr. Simeons, Dr. Emma, Dr. Oz, etc. I was tempted to try the sublingual Hcg, but opted to stick to what I know works best for me. I did ask the doctor about the tablets during our consult and was very interested in their explanation of how these tablets absorb even better than Hcg troches/pellets or drops because they absorb more efficiently. But alas, that is another post. Back to my review of Riverfront MD’s Hcg program…
How much did Riverfront MD Cost?
With the HDI discount and their subscription discount, my total cost to buy Hcg injections from Riverfront MD came out to $147 for each round, plus the $20 for my B12 injections and only $85 for my lipotropics. That cost included my prescription, my actual Hcg injections, all supplies for mixing and injection, my doctor consult, Vitamin B and Lipo injections… I was 100% ready to go.
What Was Included in My Riverfront MD Order:
My Hcg injection Kit arrived from Riverfront MD!
Guidebook with their recommended HCG Protocol (varies somewhat from the original protocol)
- (2) Vials of HCG (5000iu each) in powder form (unmixed) with a valid prescription label on it.
- (1) Vial of Lipotropics (Methylcobalamin)
- 5 Weeks of Vitamin B injections – 1mg/ml 1000mcg/ml
- (1) Bottle of Bacteriostatic Water – 30 ML which is large & marked “for multiple dose.”
- (3) Bags of 10 syringes (Total: 30 insulin needles for self-injection) 30 gauge (tiny tiny tiny insulin needles), 5/16″ long, 1 ml cc volume.
- (1) 5 ML syringe for mixing.
- (1) 18 gauge 1 1/2 inch 1.2x38mm needle for mixing.
The only thing that I needed to buy was alcohol swabs, but I had these on hand fortunately.
How long did the ordering process take and what was required?
I placed my order on a Monday evening. It was a simple process: I selected my preferred Hcg kit and was then prompted to complete a medical background form. This was the same as I have completed in my local doctor’s office and was simple enough to complete via mobile. I had a few questions about their B12, which I was able to ask using their live chat box on the order page.
I will say that this was the longest and most thorough of all the sources I have reviewed. In fact, even a full body photo is required via upload. When I asked why, it was to ensure the individual truly needed to lose weight, and to exceed FDA legal requirements for telemedicine practice. A bit of a pain, but I’m grateful for the added security and legitimacy of their program.
Riverfront’s Online Medical Forms
Step 1: After selecting my preferred Hcg kit, I was prompted to complete the medical background questionnaire. There was also a notice at the bottom, letting me know to expect my consultation phone call with the doctor, in approximately 24-48 hours.
Step 2: They offer a brief overview of what is included in the forms.
Step 3 and 4: The medical form is the longest of any of the suppliers I have reviewed. Similar to the forms you would complete in a local doctor’s office, Riverfront goes over the same basic questions: Height, weight, etc. Any known allergies including to prescription medications. It also asks if you have ever had cancer, smoke regularly, etc. You know, the same as any doctor or clinic would ask. It is also required to upload a full body, clothed photo of yourself. I had hubby snap a quick one with my cell phone, then emailed it to myself from there, and uploaded it onto the site. It was pretty effortless really.
Step 5: At the bottom of the page is a simple e-signature to confirm everything is accurate to the best of your knowledge.
My Consultation with the Riverfront MD Physician
Wednesday morning, I received a call from a medical doctor at Riverfront who went over the medical form I had completed online. Once she confirmed the details of the medical questionnaire I had completed online, she asked me a few health-related questions, and then approved my prescription over the phone. She let me know that my prescription would be sent to their pharmacy and shipped directly to me from their location in Florida, USA. The time for the approval was about 15 minutes, and another 15 minutes for my questions and going over the protocol.
How Long Did Shipping Take?
My HCG shipped from Florida, as the physician had said, and took 3 days to arrive- It arrived faster than expected so I didn’t have time to break out my trusty Hcg Diet grocery list yet. Honestly I thought I would have more time to make a personalized list of loading foods, or at the very least add an 500 calorie hcg diet menu to my fridge, and gather some hcg diet recipes.
Total time that I received my kit from ordering day: 6 business days. There was also an option to use expedited shipping, but I didn’t opt for that this time. Compared to my other recommended sources, this was the slowest delivery time.
Riverfront MD is an excellent telemedicine clinic and works with a reliable pharmacy for high quality Hcg and other prescription products. The ordering process was simple, and extremely thorough when it came to the required medical forms. I liked that everything was included in my kit, with the exception of alcohol swabs. Since those are just a few dollars, I didn’t mind that these weren’t in the kit. Order processing takes 2 to 3 business days, which makes it significantly slower than my other recommended sources that offer instant processing. If I were in a rush, this would not be my first choice. In addition, their guidebook was based on their “alternative protocol” with significant variations to Dr. Simeons original protocol. Their coaching was aligned with this as well. When I asked if they would be able to support my choice to follow the 500 calorie diet, the doctor said this was my choice and was ok with that.
Overall, I think Riverfront is an excellent option for those who are experienced with the Hcg Diet Plan, and are not in a rush to receive their order within the week. As far as saving money, this was hands down, the cheapest and most affordable option for a complete Hcg kit.[maxbutton id=”4″ ]

Testimonials from Riverfront MD clients in the Hcg Diet Forums
Finally something that works! Like just about everyone else here, I’ve been on every diet imaginable. Some gave me results for a short time, but I always gained back even more than I had lost. I have now completed 3 rounds of hCG with Riverfront MD and I have had just fantastic results. I went from over 210#’s and a size 20 dress to 161# and a petite size 12 dress. I have had no problems maintaining because the diet itself, changed my cravings and interest in food. I now WANT to eat the foods that were allowed on the diet and have no interest in fast food etc. I’m so grateful for the hcg weight loss program; I can’t even find the words. I saw fast results and now my life is just… changed forever. I would recommend this to ANYONE that wanted to lose weight for good. ~Judy S.T.
This diet is the only thing that has ever worked for me. I have lost 109 pounds. The greatest feeling, is being able to walk into any store, take 7 items to the dressing room and have them all fit and look amazing on me! My husband is also just so incredibly proud of me and that is just icing on the cake. So grateful for the Hcg diet. – Liv T.
No longer “obese.” This may sound funny, but seeing my BMI go down below the “obese” mark on the scale… was a tearful moment for me. I don’t remember the last time I was in this range. I have now lost over 60 LBS. and it feels amazing- like I can breathe again, and move differently. That’s a beautiful thing. – Dena J.
I had that moment yesterday… When my Dad brought out the camera for the holiday pic and for the first time in years, I wasn’t trying to hide my body behind someone. I have lost over 26 pounds in the last month and I feel amazing. I’m still in Phase 3, but I’m amazed at how simple it has been to NOT want to eat that chocolate cake, and blow my results. I have 1 more round to go and I’m actually looking forward to it. – Stefani L.
50 pounds down, 30 pounds to go! I am 6’0″ tall and 26yrs old. I have been overweight for my entire life. Someone recommended medical hormone weight loss to me, and while I was hesitant., it has been the greatest advice ever given to me. I have decided to make 205 my final goal, because thats what I weighed in the 7th grade. I’m kinda proud of this 50 pound mark and it’s a great feeling to know I will reach my goal. Here are my hcg diet results: R1-285 > 255 (lost 30 pounds) and R2D24 255 > 235 (lost 20 pounds.) ~ Sharon
Never trying another diet again. This works. I am on day 28 of a 40 day long with HCG injections. I have already gone from 148 pounds to 124; I have lost just shy of 24 pounds already and can see the finish line already. By the way, I tried weight watchers and so many other diets. I struggled with them for years, not seeing the results I wanted. Now, in less than a month, I am already almost at my goal with HCG! – Terri W.
Absolutely life changing. 55 pounds lost and BP in normal range! I do not miss fast food or sweets. Before, I never met a cookie I didn’t like (along with 30 of his friends in one sitting.) It feels amazing to go into my doctor’s office and have him tell me I no longer have high blood pressure, and that I am no longer considered “obese” or even overweight. Before HCG, I had tried Optifast, and Medifast which made me feel so miserable. I did lose weight but it was painfully slow and I was always hungry. I also gained the weight back (except for 2 pounds.) The HCG diet has not been easy to do, but if you ask if it was worth it- YESSSSSSSSSS. A MILLION TIMES YES. – Shawni
A skeptic turned medical weight loss believer. 140 pounds lost. I have lost 140 pounds with Hcg injections and it has changed my life. I have been on diets since I was a teenager and the yo-yo dieting was just out of control. I have now maintained my weight loss for 2 years, and am still well within the “healthy” range for my age, weight and height. I honestly never thought that would be possible. ~Susan P.
