Dr. Abby Bleistein ~Healthful Life MD

Dr. Abby Bleistein is a physician, board-certified in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Obesity Medicine who's a Colorado native and a graduate of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. She practiced primary care for 14 years, treating patients of all ages to improve their health, and learned that she helped people most when she had more time to understand their unique challenges. That’s why she started her own practice, Healthful Life MD: to give more time to partner with her patients to formulate individual solutions that work for them, and to surround them with a team to support their long-term goals.

What makes Healthful Life MD different? It starts with knowing how hard our patients work to make the changes they desire to see. We feel your pain and the heartache of not being able to do what you love. We understand the need to lose weight to improve your diabetes, cholesterol, or blood pressure. And we know you want to make real, sustainable changes in your lifestyle that improve how you feel, move, and see yourself.
