Everyone has a life story that influences their health. Through personalized treatment in partnership with the patient, we get to the root cause of disease and begin the journey towards long term health and wellness.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) December 26, 2018
Dr. Denia Tapscott has been practicing Internal Medicine for over 17 years. She began her career in Washington, D.C., where she became increasingly concerned about the weight problems of her patients and its contribution to their poor health. Her focus has been obesity medicine for both bariatric patients and as part of her primary care practice. She is a strong believer in the importance of diet, lifestyle and behavior changes as the primary treatment of most diseases and has helped thousands of patients reduce their disease burden, resulting in healthier lives.
At National Integrated Health Associates, Dr. Tapscott practices functional medicine, holistic primary care and obesity medicine with a focus on cardiometabolic health. She believes the treatment of cardiometabolic disease and obesity and related health issues must include deeper testing for the underlying causes. Only then can a comprehensive treatment plan be developed which may include nutritional analysis and supplementation in addition to medication, diet and lifestyle changes.
As a primary care physician, she offers traditional treatment and recommended screenings but integrates an in-depth functional medical approach to understand the possible underlying causes of ailments and treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. Dr. Tapscott believes, “Everyone has a life story that influences their health. Through personalized treatment in partnership with the patient, we get to the root cause of disease and begin the journey towards long term health and wellness.”
NIHA offers traditional and advanced diagnostic testing and IV therapies at the on-site lab. By using advanced laboratory and genetic testing, Dr. Tapscott’s goal is to help prevent future disease and treat current health issues effectively for the long-term success of patients.
Dr. Tapscott is a diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) and has developed and directed several hospital affiliated medical and surgical weight loss programs. She later became Associate Professor of Medicine at Howard University where she lectured locally and nationally on topics related to obesity and cardiometabolic disease. She received her medical degree from Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., and is a published author. She has been recognized for her leadership role in the Washington, D.C. health care community.
Dr. Tapscott is currently accepting new patients. She is committed to providing care for the whole person and incorporating more innovative medical services and IV therapies in order to help patients achieve a better level of health.
