“I started as a successful patient in our weight loss clinic. Finally getting control of my own weight made an incredible difference in my life. I want to help patients find the same success that I experienced. I like being a health partner with my patients. I hope to give them the knowledge and skills to manage their own health.”
“The fact that I have struggles with my own weight helps me relate to my patients. I understand the challenges they’re facing, and I draw on my own successes and failures to find solutions to obstacles. I love working with patients who take responsibility for their choices, actions, and success.”
