Dr. Angela Tran is the CEO and Founder of MedFit Medical Weight Loss, a weight loss clinic at Denver, CO. MedFit is a medical team carefully selected to help patients safely lose weight through education, fitness training, and medical expertise.

In 2004, Dr. Tran graduated from the University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed her residency in Internal Medicine at Exempla St. Joseph Hospital in Denver, CO, in 2007.
Angela joins me today to share her story of transitioning from being a primary care doctor to starting her own business, MedFit Medical Weightloss. She explains how she realized she was not being the kind of doctor she wanted to be and shares the events that led her to the world of weight loss. She discusses the metrics that define “medical fitness” and shares her thoughts on fad diets. She also underscores the importance of continuing education for business owners and highlights the value of finding the right people and business coaches.
“The doctor-patient relationship should be a partnership. Patients who are educated feel empowered to make the proper decisions to treat themselves.” - Dr. Angela Tran
