ABOUT

Shirly Ramchandani, MD, CHWC

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. I did my medical residency training at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. Since completing my training, I started my primary care career in Boston at a large academic practice.  

After a twenty-year career in primary care with a board certification in Obesity Medicine, I decided to change my focus and become a certified Health and Wellness Coach.

My passion for helping my patients find the root causes of their diseases in order to improve their overall health led me to this decision. As a physician, I often found that the key to good health for my patients included a healthier lifestyle. As a Health and Wellness Coach, I can mentor clients who wish to stay healthy with a holistic approach, and without the time constraints of a rushed medical appointment.

I am passionate about preventative and proactive approaches to health, and believe that the right diet and physical lifestyle are often the key to maintaining one’s health.

I have successfully helped many clients adopt and maintain healthier lifestyles that incorporate exercise, nutrition, and living life mindfully. This has led them to improve their health and achieve greater life satisfaction and well-being.

On our journey together, we will explore any environmental factors and habits that may be impacting your health negatively, and develop a sustainable program to promote self-efficacy to make lasting positive changes.

As a certified Health and Wellness Coach I will continue to value client confidentiality greatly, and look forward to forming trusting partnerships with my clients.
