We have mountains of evidence that the typical “medicate and operate” approach is very expensive, but isn’t improving health. HealthspanMD™ partners with our patients to provide expert medical care AND the guidance and support needed to create habits and choices that we all know are critically important to health.

Our comprehensive approach focuses on the ten most powerful factors for reducing the risk – and reversing – the most common and deadly diseases.

We call those ten factors the Healthspan-10™

  1. Normal blood pressure
  2. Normal blood sugar/insulin levels
  3. Healthy cholesterol levels
  4. Healthy body weight or body composition
  5. Healthy nutrition
  6. Regular physical activity
  7. Avoid toxins such as tobacco and excess alcohol among others
  8. Restorative sleep
  9. Manage stress
  10. Stay connected – socially and to your purpose

One-size-fits all, band-aid, and quick-fix solutions might sound attractive but set you up to fail and don’t work in the long-run.

We know you are unique, and the most effective approach to your health goals will be unique as well.  We take the time to get to know you and your goals because that’s the only way that works in the long-run. Plus, it’s a lot more enjoyable and gratifying for you and for us!


Episodic care – seeing your healthcare team once every few months or years – is a major reason why healthcare fails to help people get healthier. If you’ve ever tried to get healthier or lose weight, but eventually lost your way, you understand the importance of a connected approach where you regularly interact with your expert team that knows and cares about you and your goals 

We’ve all had the experience of calling your healthcare team and being on perpetual hold or never getting a call back or being offered an appointment in three months. Instead, imagine being just a text away from your expert healthcare team – there to provide the guidance, information, advice, and support you need when you need it.
