Are the hCG shots effective or is the doctor at this weight loss clinic just trying to get rich?

In brief: Yes

When done under supervision of a physician it is safe and you lose only abnormal fat.

In brief: No evidence for HCG

There is absolutely no evidence supporting HCG & weight loss - the weight loss comes from the 500-calories daily, nearly starvation.
There is a small amount of data supporting a sense of well-being and reportedly less hunger and hair loss temporarily. Most people do lose their hair and regain the weight. Hcg raises bad cholesterol & estrogen levels - increasing cancer & heart disease risk. Scam.
