The Diet Doctor in NYC - Meet Dr. Francois
Prior to opening the NY Weight Loss & Wellness Centers and offering medi weight loss services to residents of the Bronx and Manhattan, Jean Daniel Francois, the diet doctor in NYC, graduated from St. Francis College in Brooklyn, New York, with a BS in management.
He obtained his master's in economics from Long Island University (Brooklyn campus). He worked in accounting and finance in a Fortune 500 company before responding to the persistent call of medicine by going to New York Medical College, in Valhalla, New York, where he obtained his doctorate in medicine. While doing his residency in neurology at State University of New York, he remained involved in his community.
He was honored by the American Medical Association for outstanding community service in December 1997. Such an honor was bestowed upon only forty resident physicians from around the United States. Dr. Francois was privileged to be recognized, along with thirty-nine other doctors who displayed "leadership and a strong commitment to the health of their patients and the community as a whole through community service outreach." During his fellowship in clinical neurophysiology, he served as Assistant Residency Program Director at SUNY-Brooklyn Center. In an effort to broaden his skills to meet the needs of his community, he also obtained a bachelor's degree in theology.
He is currently a practicing neurologist in his private office. He is in charge of the outpatient neurology clinic and Parkinson's disease clinic and the Electroencephalogram lab at a teaching hospital. He is the author of many books, a motivational speaker, and a lecturer on topics suchas family life, health, spirituality, domestic violence, successful living, and personal finance. Throughout his speeches and presentations, the focus has always been a total commitment to empower everyone to take control of their existence and step out on the road to a fulfilled life.
