Tatiana Denning, D.O.
Osteopathic Family Medicine Physician
As a family medicine physician, I often felt like I was simply putting a band-aid on many of the chronic conditions patients deal with. As a result, after completing residency I felt a bit disillusioned with healthcare. It didn't seem like there was any "healthcare" at all, but rather, just waiting until a disease developed and then chasing after it to try and manage it.
Then in 2007, I took a position as medical director for a weight loss & wellness center in the Tampa Bay area. Unbeknownst to me, the field would become my passion.
Through healthy eating and weight management, I discovered that there's a way to help treat the root of many health issues, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. I saw firsthand that Hippocrates really did know what he was talking about! While his advice to think of food as medicine has been largely lost in modern medicine, some of us are once again discovering the wisdom of his words.
In addition to healthy foods, our mind and habits also have a significant role to play. This aspect of weight management appealed to me as well, and allows me to utilize the knowledge and skills learned in one of my other degress - the field of psychology. Part of the process involves getting to really know my patients - their history, their psychosocial situations & influences, their inner workings, and how they function in their day-to-day lives. Armed with this knowledge, I'm able to discern how best to guide my patients through their weight loss & wellness journey.
