    Dr. Holly Lofton, Primary Care Physician & Internist

    Dr. Holly Lofton started her personal journey of weight loss as a pre-teen when she modified her lifestyle to improve her diet and became more active in sports. Even during her regimented medical school years at the Medical College of Georgia, she enlisted patients and fellow classmates to lead more active lifestyles and to use nutrition to improve their overall health.

    Dr. Lofton completed her Internal Medicine residency at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan. She was then hand selected from a pool of many physicians to train at Geisinger Medical Center where she earned a fellowship in Nutrition Support and Obesity, became board certified in Obesity Medicine, and went on to serve as a staff physician and fellowship director at Geisinger.

    In recent years, she has served on the bariatric medicine committee for the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery as well as on the Board of Directors for the Obesity Action Coalition, all while training other physicians to become skilled in weight management and nutrition. She has also educated the general public about the importance of maintaining a normal weight through lectures, workshops, and a national radio segment.

    Dr. Lofton was welcomed into the NYU Langone Weight Management Program in early 2012. She designed the popular New You™ weight loss program to help her patients obtain results while fostering nutrition education and placing emphasis on a healthy lifestyle. In her practice, she combines scientifically proven weight loss techniques with medications and behavior modification to find each patient’s niche.

    She is currently involved in research pertaining to the effects of weight loss medications on patients who have regained weight after bariatric surgery and continues to educate students on diagnosing and treating obesity.
