I grew up in a small village in Lebanon, a country in the Middle East. I graduated high school in 1988 and my family decided to send me to Spain to achieve a medical degree and become a doctor. I finished my medical degree in 1994 and I then decided to move to the United States to achieve a higher education level. I joined a residency program at Brooklyn Hospital Center and I am became a board certified internal medecine in 1999, after I became an internal medicine board certified. Instead of a board certified. I then got married and after the birth of my first child in 2000 opened my private practice in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. It is a mixed area with many different ethnic groups. Today after 16 years, having the pleasure and opportunity to work with many different ethnics groups, I have got a full view and understanding of their cultures, of how they act, how they eat, and how they live their lives.
Over years of practicing the traditional type of medicine, I found myself telling my patients the same thing, “Lose weight, exercise and your medical problem will get better.” years after the patients would come back to my office and they still have high BMI, high Cholesterol, Diabetes, and still feeling sick. I started to realize something was missing in my advice. I did not live the pain they are going through and the struggle they have to live or the hardship of trying to eat healthy. I started my search and decided to become a Certified Health Coach. Becoming a health coach helped me first listen to my inner wisdom, identify my values, and transform my goals into action.
Coming from a small village, where access to healthy food was easy, to a big city like New York, where access to healthy food is more difficult, inspired me to open my own company, Life Weight Loss and Aesthetic.
My goal is to help people eat better, live healthier, and be happier.
In addition to weight loss services and health coaching, Life Weight loss and Aesthetic center offer different types of cosmetic services like Botox, Dermal filler, Platelet rich plasma, Dermapen and IPl for skin rejuvenation, Hydrafacial Md, Skin tag removal, Sclerotherapy for spider veins and Laser hair removal.
