How does Dr. Harris help his patients?

Dr. Harris opened the first Lifestyle Medicine practice in South Florida. He created this unique program to help serve his community, because he saw that traditional medications and recommendations were too narrow in scope to keep up with rise in incidence of obesity and type 2 diabetes. He sought to change the course of this trajectory by becoming board-certified in Lifestyle Medicine and starting his programs towards better health. Dr. Harris has a unique ability to get to the heart of the matter with his patients.

What’s included?

The programs combine doctor visits with health coaching visits, typically alternating week to week. You will receive a detailed prescription and plan of action towards keeping you healthy and meeting your goals. The initial visit with the physician will typically last an hour or so. You will then receive printed copies of regular body composition scans and complete laboratory panels specifically designed by Dr. Harris. Additionally, you will have online access and your own account on a health network platform with the ability to communicate with your physician and coaches.

How do you describe this type of program?

While there is nothing like it in the area, a way of understanding it is as follows: Let’s say you have goals of losing weight, getting in shape, and just feeling healthier. Or, maybe you want to beat your diabetes, or lower your cholesterol not by taking a pill, but by eating the right foods, and getting the right exercise. Now, you have a medical doctor poised to deliver this all-encompassing system based on principles of wellness and health coaching, sports science and nutrition, and lifestyle medicine.

What are some examples of healthy goals?

Losing weight and having a greater sense of well-being are common goals. Many people want to take less medication, and would like to treat their chronic illnesses, such as high blood pressure and cholesterol, with nutrition and physical activity. Most people want to feel better and just be healthier. Other goals include improving one’s performance for professional athletes, as well as for recreational athletes alike.

What if I cannot make it during normal business hours?

Dr. Harris has night and weekend availability and can adjust his schedule to fit your needs. While he sees most of his patients during a typical weekday schedule, he can accommodate extended hours. He sees his patients in Delray Medical Center where he is on the medical staff in the Department of Family Medicine, and he helps coordinate their care. He is also on staff at JFK Medical Center in the Emergency Department.
