Let’s talk about how we can help your patients create optimal health.
For eighteen years, Dr. Andersen directed the Surgical Critical Care Program at Grandview and was Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology. In 2000, he made a monumental decision to leave his hospital-based practice to devote his full energy to helping people to become and to stay healthy.
Dr. Andersen has served as Medical Director of Medifast, Inc., an innovative leader in the production, distribution and sale of weight management and health management products marketed under the brand name Medifast, and is currently the Medical Director of Take Shape For Life, Inc. Working with Dr. Lisa Davis, VP, Research & Development of Medifast, Inc., formerly with Johns Hopkins, Dr. Andersen has collaborated on studies to show the efficacy of meal replacements, with the goal to provide convenient meals for people to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
“Like many doctors, you’ve probably tried to help your patients lose weight and failed. You are not alone… I’m going to share with you my knowledge, skills, and support to help you help your patients. I will help you build a different kind of practice. We’re not going to use prescriptions, warnings, or fear tactics. Instead, we’ll be their coach, their guide. Together, we’ll put patients on the path to taking permanent charge of their health.” - Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen
As co-founder of Take Shape for Life, Dr. Andersen has built an integrated support system that helps health professionals make the necessary changes in their patient lifestyles to create optimal health. Using a team approach of health professionals working with Health Coaches, Dr. Andersen has shown we can provide leading edge nutritional solutions, medical support and the support of caring individuals, to provide the necessary one-on-one interaction so vital in changing peoples’ lives. This Take Shape for Life physician-led health network is gathering tremendous momentum.
