Primary Care Medicine with Emphasis on Healthy Weight:
My passion is to offer comprehensive medical care focused on behavior modification, a healthy lifestyle, and a nutritional diet plan. Individuals can obtain their routine primary medical care needs while weight-loss interventions are done as needed over the period of their care at our clinic. Patients are provided necessary weight management educational tools for prevention of unhealthy weight. This “one-stop-medical care” model is important for ensuring continuity of care, avoiding needs to seek surgical or other weight loss means when treatment for the morbid condition is weight loss.
During my experiences as a family physician, I have treated thousands of individuals, many with excess unhealthy weight suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, heart diseases, many types of cancers, depression / mental illnesses, chronic joint pains, etc. It is a known fact that unhealthy weight leads to these medical conditions. Our commitment is to help our patients to achieve a healthy weight, and to promote wellness through services customized to fit the individual’s specific needs.
My undergraduate degree in diet and nutrition from Louisiana State University planted the seeds for my passion for a comprehensive weight management program that would focus on behavior modification complemented by a healthy lifestyle and a nutritional eating plan. I believe in maintaining a positive mindset, creating partnerships with a purpose, and always striving for significant outcomes. When you work with me, you should expect a collaboration with transparency and consistency.
