Dr. Jan McBarron earned her medical doctorate while working full time as a nurse. She felt that nurses spent more time with patients and typically were very compassionate. Full-time physicians lack such bedside manner. She decided her nursing skills coupled with a higher level of education would allow her to marry both careers for the betterment of her patients. For the next thirty years, she specialized in the practice of medical bariatrics, nonsurgical weight loss. Given that she herself had struggled with her own weight, finally shedding more than 50 lbs., she was able to connect with her patients on a very personal level. Currently, she has stopped seeing patients one on one in private practice. Dr. McBarron is a leading authority and an advocate for people who want answers understand their health, diagnosis and treatment options. She is currently focused on connecting with a broader base of people as a writer and public speaker. She will be using the impact of the internet and social media as a tool to make that connection. Dr. McBarron is happily married to her best friend Duke River Troy, together they are living in Nevada. They enjoy hiking, weightlifting, tennis, and travel.
