Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
It definitely found us. Actually, I had just given up on weight loss and decided to “get happy” with my overweight body when we went to a seminar on how to help our physical medicine patients with weight issues. In the past, no matter what I did, I could maybe only lose half a pound on a good week. When you have 70 pounds to lose, what you lose is hope. With this program, the weight literally fell off and it was the simplest thing I had ever done. Patients saw me morph right in front of them, and it has snowballed into helping more than 2,500 patients who have allowed us to coach them and give them back a fat-burning body.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
We have surrounded ourselves with the best of the best and feel so blessed that they’ve chosen to be a part of our team. Dr. Glenda Goodwin, M.D., is our medical director. She works with Dr. Murray, utilizing integrative holistic solutions for our physical medicine patients. Dr. Goodwin’s background in obstetrics and gynecology is invaluable when helping our weight-loss patients with a range of concerns. Everyone, from our wellness counselor, R.N., M.A., office coordinator, and esthetician, works together passionately to ensure each patient receives the best care possible in a loving and fun environment. Many patients comment on our exceptional staff.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Giving people hope. Weight issues are extremely emotionally exhausting—I know from experience.
What’s your favorite childhood memory?
Growing up Mennonite (similar to Amish) and at the age of 12 finding a forbidden TV in a downstairs closet that my mom had hidden. I loved the “rebel” in my mom!
