Episode 007: Dr Spencer Nadolsky D.O., Fitness, Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine: The Future of Telemedicine and Direct Primary Care
In Episode 007 of A Medicinal Mind: Wisdom and Well Being I have an amazing conversation with innovative family physician and leading expert in nutrition science and obesity medicine, Dr. Spencer Nadolsky DO.
Spencer is a board certified family and obesity medicine physician who incorporates his passion for exercise and nutrition science into his individualized care for patients seeking to improve their health through lifestyle medicine.
Spencer initially discovered his passion for fitness and nutrition as a heavyweight wrestler at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.
Following his college athletic career and subsequent medical school training at the Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM), Spencer went on to complete his residency training in family medicine through the Virginia Commonwealth University-Riverside Family Medicine program just 15 minutes up the road from my childhood home in Newport News, Virginia. Right now he is currently accepting patients into a new, revolutionary online clinic called SteadyMD. When he is not in the office, Spencer enjoys lifting, cooking, and taking long walks after meals with his wife and fellow physician Dr. Jenna Nadolsky MD.
In our conversation, Spencer shares his personal story and growth as a traditionally trained family physician now practicing lifestyle based medicine.
During the podcast, we discuss:
The Concept of Membership Based Direct Primary Care and more specifically the new telemedicine based online platform Steady MD
Spencer’s Clinical Approach and Patient Centered Treatment.
The Role of Social Support and Community Networks to Support Health.
Spencer’s Background in Obesity Medicine and Clinical Approach to Weight Loss
I was so fortunate to stumble across Spencer in my own back yard and am so thankful to have been able to grow a personal and professional relationship with such an innovative visionary in lifestyle medicine.
