Do things that matter.  


Medical Director

Be a part of something special.  

Change people’s lives by making them healthier and happier through education and lifestyle change.  That is the One Life way.  All within a fun and loving environment with a team that LOVES their job. 

Leave behind the less pleasing aspects of medical practice – there is no on-call, no night shifts, very little paperwork, no dictations, no EHR and you’ll never need to stay after work to finish your charting. And because we don’t accept insurance you’ll never have to hassle with prior authorizations, formularies or reimbursement issues.

One Life is a San Diego based medical weight loss company that opened its first clinic in April of 2010. Since opening we have experienced remarkable growth as well as numerous accolades, including San Diego magazine’s “Best Weight Loss Clinic” in its first year. One Life has two clinics, one in Solana Beach and another in Carlsbad.
