Kelvin Brown, MD, MPH

Surgeon, Bariatric Specialist, and Public Health Expert

My philosophy & purpose

I take a holistic approach to understanding each client and their unique presenting concerns. I appreciate that our mind, body, spirit, genetics, environment, emotions, and relationships are all intertwined and intimately affected by one another. I try to focus on each client's strengths and talents in addition to their struggles and areas for growth.

 

I have a flexible and dynamic style that draws from several major theoretical approaches to overall health. At a basic level, I believe that there is inherent value in increasing self-understanding and self-acceptance. As clients come to a deeper appreciation for how their personal, community, or institutional history can affect their current existence, motivations, and relationships, they often feel more grounded and better able to make well-informed decisions about how to move forward in a healthier and more sustainable way.

 

My purpose is simple: to improve health while maintaining integrity and doing no harm. I look to do this one person or communitity at a time each and every day. While I desire to impact all people, I do have a unique sensitivity for children, the underserved, veterans, and the elderly.
