Allowing ample time for each appointment is key to essential for compassionate and thorough care. Over the course of my career I have interviewed countless people and asked them what

[03/16/14] Hi to all former patients of my friend DOLLY JOERN! Dolly is the person I can hold responsible for inspiring me to open my own practice.

Dear friends -- Overeaters Anonymous is an excellent program for many women who struggle with shame and frustration with being overweight. Please share other support you have found along your path to feeling great about your body. Hey, we aren't getting any younger!!
Here is some information about OA:
Overeaters Anonymous offers a program of recovery from compulsive eating using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of OA. Worldwide meetings and other tools provide a fellowship of experience, strength and hope where members respect one another’s anonymity. OA charges no dues or fees; it is self-supporting through member contributions.
OA is not just about weight loss, weight gain or maintenance, or obesity or diets. It addresses physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is not a religious organization and does not promote any particular diet.
OA members differ in many ways, but we are united by our common disease and the solution we have found in the OA program. We practice unity with diversity, and we welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous. Welcome home. Overeaters Anonymous

HELLO to all of you former patients and co-workers of Dr Dan Logen's!!
Dr. Logen made an impact on so many lives and is such a unique personality, I thought it would be fun to share some stories and memories about him. Currently Dr Logen is happily retired and is pursuing his other interests which include travel, birding and photography.
I will never forget the time Dr. Logen gave me a goodbye hug when I left for a year to travel around the world with my family. That was very unexpected and sweet of him.
Here is what Dr Logen has to say about Lauren Jaye: “I have known Lauren for more than 20 years. She has always been conscientious in her patient care and is a good communicator. Her integrity is beyond reproach. I have no hesitation in recommending her.”
What special memories do you have to share about your experiences with Dr Logen??
