Patient consultation includes weight loss, hormone replacement therapy, obesity management, exercise and diet assistance and much more. The essence of her work means helping you develop a healthier, happier relationship with food and improving their overall wellness and lifestyle.
Dr. Gomez is a board-certified Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine Physician who has decided to opt-out of the traditional American medical system. She attended the University of Norte Dame for her undergraduate degree and the University of New Mexico School of Medicine for her medical degree. She has been in practice for 15 years, first working full time at Mountain View Regional Medical Center in Las Cruces, New Mexico, then transitioning to Mountain View Wellness and Weight Loss.
Her career and understanding of her role as a physician has been evolving and has led her to a point where she feels ethically and morally obligated to do better by her patients. She has long been aware that the American Medical System is broken. Patient care has become too expensive, too profit driven, too time restricted and disjointed and sadly focused on keeping people sick rather than making people well. The sicker they keep you, the higher your health care utilization, the more money the American medical system makes. And even worse, Americans spend the most money on health care in the world, yet we are ranked last when compared to other high-income countries. We are the only health care system in the world that regularly bankrupts its patients!
As a result she has decided to branch out on her own in order to create a clinical experience that is focused on wellness. She believes in curing chronic disease, on helping patients get off of their chronic medications and stay healthy and out of their doctor’s offices, urgent cares, hospitals and other health care facilities. By focusing on metabolic disease that are 100% curable (insulin resistance, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, pre-diabetes, gout, polycyclic ovarian syndrome, obstructive sleep apnea, irritable bowel disease, high cholesterol).
Dr. Gomez is committed to providing patients both in-person and virtual health care with intensive dietary, exercise and lifestyle modifications to get and keep patients healthy. With a focus on treating to cure chronic diseases she can help you feel better, get you off of your chronic medications and help you “opt-out” of the traditional “sick care” American medical system.
