Dr. Julie was overweight, her clothes didn’t fit, and she didn’t feel good about herself. Originally looking at Healthy Solutions at Home as an option for her patients, she went on the program herself and lost 35 lbs. She is now “passionate” about recommending the program to others. Since losing the weight, Dr. Julie has become the Medical Director of an on-site HMR Program where she works.
