About Us

Our Vision

We believe in living lives of meaning and balance. At Healthful Life MD we want to help people change their lives – to live richer, fuller, and more actively, while feeling healthy and comfortable in their bodies.

Our Mission

We partner with men and women in their 40s and 50s who have between 30 and 70 pounds or more to lose. We provide our personalized, compassionate, and judgment-free medical approach to weight loss. Serving individuals in Golden, Morrison, Arvada, WheatRidge, Lakewood, Littleton, Evergreen, Conifer, and surrounding Denver Metro areas.

What Makes Healthful Life MD Different


We know what doesn’t work for patients:

  • Group weight loss
  • Drill sergeant approach
  • Being told what weight you should be at for your height, weight, or age

We believe Medical Weight Loss is a Personal Response to the Epidemic of Obesity

Individualized Weight Loss Approach

Every patient is different and we create a weight loss plan that reflects your medical history, body composition, nutritional needs, weight loss goals, and many other crucial factors. Healthful Life MD offers a supportive, encouraging environment that is custom-built for your success.
