Philosophy Of Care

My philosophy of care is based on the principles of whole health, mutual respect, and collaboration. It is important to me to build a trusting relationship with my clients in order to successfully achieve their health goals. Providing the right education and tools to empower my clients to create healthy habits, not restrictions, is of key importance. In regards to weight management, prevention and wellness are at the foundation to any treatment plan mutually devised at the Edward Weight Loss Clinic.

I was nervous and anxious about my health. Kristine Warnes entered the room with such a positive and calming greeting that she immediately squelched my anxiety. We were able to focus on a forward focused game plan. I entered full of anxiety and left the office feeling confident and motivated.

I feel that this provider definitely helped me with a probiotic issue which I will forever be grateful. So far as my original issue to see this provider I do not feel that I have been helped to the extent that I was expecting.

*Kristine was very helpful, explained her plan fully, listened to what I had to say & answered any questions that I asked, very informed about my medical history and knowledgeable about my issue. I am not a doctor - hospital type person but felt very at ease in her office.
