She has also served as a weight management physician at Jewish Weight Management Center, Cincinnati. Dr. Singh is a member of American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP). Having worked extensively with the geriatric population in the last few years, Dr Singh realizes the key role nutrition, weight, and fitness (physical and mental) play in keeping a modern woman healthy and fit to take care of the multiple responsibilities thrown in her way.
On a personal note, Dr. Singh practices yoga, Pilates, free-weights and cardio to keep herself healthy. She is married for 16 years with 2 young kids in elementary school. Between her two pregnancies, she has gained and lost 180 lbs!! She struggles to maintain a balance between all her various responsibilities and finding time for herself. With little time in hand, she exercises, almost daily, in her family room with both kids running around her! She loves chocolate cake and eats it too!
Based on her experience, research and scientific knowledge, Dr. Singh provides practical, personalized step-by-step guidance regarding nutrition, exercise, sleep and behavior in a supportive, compassionate, non-judgmental and respectful environment.
