By Dr. Yolanda Lewis-Ragland, MD, FAAP, FABOM

Who am I?

Please let me introduce myself...
My name is Dr. Yolanda Lewis-Ragland and I am board-certified in both pediatrics (through the American Academy of Pediatrics) and bariatrics (through the American Board of Obesity Medicine) .
I am originally from the District of Columbia and have been practicing in the DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia) as a community pediatrician for more than 10 years at Children's National Health System (CNHS) and as such, am also an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at The George Washington University.
Since 2007 I have focused my attention and conducted research in child and adolescent obesity and with my acquisition of a second board certification in 2014, I expanded my expertise to adults as well.  

Currently I provide weight loss services through my CONCIERGE WEIGHT LOSS Program, Children's National Health System in Washington, DC and Meridian Medical Associates in Oxon Hill, MD, which gives me the opportunity to treat men, women, teens and children with overweight and obesity. 

For years I have endeavored to reach as many people as possible with the life-changing concepts of personalized nutrition, and to that end I have realeased my NEW BOOK, ​Dr. Yolanda's S.O.U.L. Food Diet: 10 Secrets to Lose Weight, Burn Fat and Stop Food Cravings for Good!, which was born out of my passion to counsel families in their journeys of transformation to optimal health.  I have also developed an accompanying workbook which I call, Dr. Yolanda's S.O.U.L. Food Diet 10 Step Wellness Journal, designed to help you track your successful journey.  I am so proud to announce that both books are available for sell below! 

Additionally as a distributor of LifeVantage, I'm pleased to offer this line of weight loss and energy-boosting nutritional supplements and personal care products that are rooted in natural ingredients and good science.

Why should you listen to me?

The American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) serves the public and the field of obesity medicine by establishing a credentialing protocol and maintaining standards for assessment and certification of candidate physicians. 
Cerification as a Diplomate of the ABOM signifies excellence in the practice of obesity medicine and distinguishes a physician as having achieved a high level of competency and understanding in obesity care and ABOM collaborates with the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) to administer the annual credentialing exam.
Dr. Lewis-Ragland is a trained expert in weight loss for children and adults and has a full arsenal of nutritional counseling, dietary planning, appetite suppressants, injectable and oral vitamin supplements, alkalinizing products, laser-lipo treatments, and much more to help you reach your goals.
