“Everybody is different and I truly enjoy helping folks overcome their healthcare challenges. In general, we tend to live in a world that stresses the negative about our bodies and wellness which really defeat people before they even begin to implement a health regimen. So my goal is to help patients take a step back and make attainable goals that stick and don’t fade come February first.”

– Suzanne Davis, RD, LDN, CDE
