More about Claire
What do you love most about your job?
We are a team! I am here to support patients through all of their successes and encourage them through the inevitable challenges that occur along their health journey!
How do you go about making your treatment plans for FORM patients?
It is important to start by getting to know each patient’s unique history and goals. We discuss their weight history, medical diagnoses, current lifestyle habits and any barriers to health that may be present. Together, we use this information to develop an individualized treatment plan that best suits each patient's specific preferences and long-term health goals.
Why do you love working with FORM patients?
When patients come to us, they have often been struggling with their weight for years and may feel discouraged. I love that we are able to provide patients with hope and long-term solutions for their weight and health. I love that we can take the time to truly get to know our patients and celebrate with them as they achieve their health and wellness goals, both big and small!
