The Better Life program by Dr. Barber empowers patients with information about their health and wellness, and most importantly, puts in place a plan for the future. Most of us have a financial plan, but very few have a health plan. Our greatest asset is our health, and setting goals to manage our health plan is vital. Better Life wants to partner with you to make the right choices for optimal health. Taking medication to treat disease is reactionary. The real focus should be on lifestyle changes. Most of us know we need to lose weight, exercise, eat better, and quit smoking. Unfortunately, very few of us understand how to get out of the rut we tend to fall into. Our experienced team will design custom programs to empower you to make this life change for the long haul.
