Why Healthful Life MD


At Healthful Life MD, we spend more time with our patients than most doctors in insurance-based practices.  It’s important to us that you feel comfortable and at peace in our care.  This allows us to customize your medical weight loss program to match your weight loss goals, body composition, medical history, and nutritional needs, among other essential details.


We define health in a broad sense, encompassing physical health, emotional health, nutrition, fitness, spiritual health, well-being, sleep, and psychological health.

What We Do:

  • Our Healthful Life MD medical weight loss program is medically monitored as part of our safe, effective, and evidence-based practice.

  • We prescribe anti-obesity medication when appropriate and aim for the end goal of improving your overall health, not just helping you lose weight.

  • Our carefully vetted team features specialists in medical management and care, nutrition, behavioral support, and fitness training.

  • Our team meets regularly to develop the most comprehensive plans possible for our patients and monitors their progress at every stage.

What We Don’t Do:

  • Our Healthful Life MD team does not prescribe expensive treatments that are clinically proven to be ineffective.

  • We aren’t in the business of pushing products.  Instead, we value the process and personalized approach to our medical weight loss program.
