Dr. Cesar Lara, MD
As a graduate of the University of Iowa, Carver College of Medicine, Dr. Lara ambitiously opened his medical practice with the idea of healing patients and making their lives better. It wasn't long before he realized that many of his patients were suffering from conditions that were being treated, but rarely healed. He was not making the difference he dreamed of, and so he decided to make a change. As he researched other avenues and thought of switching to non-traditional medicine, he realized that profound healing could come through focusing on weight loss and lifestyle modification. Almost a decade later and after helping thousands of patients change their lives, Dr. Lara has designed a proven method to help people lose weight and achieve the health of their dreams. Dr. Lara is board-certified in Obesity Medicine and has an Advanced Certification in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). His program combines the latest medical procedures with a holistic approach that focuses on the totality of the individual. Dr. Lara has a true passion for connecting with his patients and helping them achieve their highest level of physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. No matter the challenge, Dr. Lara embraces every opportunity he has to help his patients and is committed to empowering them to reach their goals.
