Dr. Hodges' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hodges "Exceptional Health & Weight Loss Solutions was born out of Dr. Linda Hodges' passion for weight loss medicine and fitness. She believes every patient deserves optimal health, not just the absence of disease. Her positive approach to medicine puts wellness and preventative care at the forefront, rather than having it take a back seat to disease treatment and medication management.Approachable, informal and non-judgmental, Dr. Hodges is a Doctor of Osteopathy with several years' experience administering medically supervised weight loss programs. Dr. Hodges focuses primarily on eating real food, obtained and prepared as naturally as possible. However, she also is quite aware that people live very busy lives and her recommendations always consider the patient's lifestyle.For instance, patients have the option to use meal replacements to induce weight loss while learning to incorporate real food into their lifestyle. Ultimately, Dr. Hodges understands that you cannot be on meal replacements forever so her final goal is to teach you to build real food into your everyday life.Dr. Hodges graduated from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, completing her internship and residency in Internal Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri. She also completed a Critical Care Fellowship at the University of Iowa. In 2015, Dr. Hodges decided to obtain her board certification in Obesity Medicine from the American Board of Obesity Medicine and plans to focus exclusively on physician assisted weight loss and obesity medicine in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area.A Missouri native, Dr. Hodges married into an Iowa family and resides just outside of Cedar Rapids. She and her husband have two children."
