I have always had a passion for the prevention of disease, wellness, and helping people with their weight. During my 13 years as a family medicine physician, I found myself more and more passionate about helping those who struggle with their weight.
Time and again people would tell me they were eating healthy, going to the gym, but the weight just won’t come off. In some cases, they would continue to gain weight. This led me to learn more about the disease of obesity. I joined a national organization, the Obesity Medicine Association, which provided extraordinary educational materials, and I became Board Certified in Obesity Medicine. The more I learned, the more I knew that this is what I was meant to do.
I pride myself on forming strong patient relationships. By listening and learning about what makes each individual unique, I am better able to help treat and manage their health conditions. While it was difficult leaving my family medicine practice, I am excited to be able to provide the guidance, support, accountability and treatment needed for the disease of obesity.
I am excited to help you on your weight loss journey!
