I moved to Charlotte in Spring 2015, soon after finishing my medical residency program. I was 50 pounds overweight and mentally and physically exhausted. I knew I had to lose weight; especially as a new private practice physician. I started with exercise, jogging regularly. I felt better but I failed to lose weight. My next step was working with a personal trainer. This helped somewhat but my weight loss was very slow. For some reason my body was fighting my attempts for weight loss, as if it wanted desperately for me to stay at the higher weight. To add, I had a major sweet tooth and could not shake my love of sugar and desserts. Six months after starting my exercise routine I made an appointment with Dr. Covington. She partnered with me on a detailed plan that included nutrition, physical activity, and medical therapy.


Dr. Covington is fantastic! I have bee working with her as my health coach since around October 2017. With her help and some mild exercise, I have been able to lose almost 20 pounds.’ am feeling so much better and healthier. I highly recommend visiting with her to discuss strategies for a healthier life!
