Quote

It is a good day at work when: "I see the confidence that comes after a patient has learned how to make improvements in his/her health. We live in busy times. I constantly hear how overwhelmed people are: They have many responsibilities-spouses, children, grandchildren, aging parents, work and more. They have many questions - How do I start? How do I keep it off? Do my current medications cause me to gain weight? Are there medications available to help me lose weight? Do supplements work? How to I find time? The education and care that we offer in the Weight and Wellness Center enables patients to be successful. That smile, that pride that comes from figuring out how to do it and do it well, is a pleasure to see.”
