I’m Lisa Dawes, and I am passionate about helping people become their very best. I am thrilled to be a part of the Lapidus team, and cannot say enough about the Lapidus Clinic. As a nutrition therapist, I support our patients while they are learning about healthy eating and new lifestyle habits. I celebrate our patients successes, help them navigate roadblocks, and watch them become problem solvers.

During my 17 years in practice, I witness every day how healthy food choices can lead to a balanced, healthy and happy life.

​“Those who have no time for healthy eating will sooner or later have time to find time for illness.”
