My Health Coach and Mentor Delia M. Garcia, M.D.
As an oncologist specializing in breast cancer for the past twenty seven years, Dr. Delia Garcia has observed two things in her practice. The patients are becoming (1) younger than ever before and (2) less healthy than in the past, mainly due to obesity.
Today, her focus personally and professionally is helping people achieve “optimal health” as a Certified Health Coach and Global Director with Take Shape for Life.
Passionate about educating men and women in the importance of early diagnosis and the many treatment options available today, Dr. Delia Garcia is dedicated to understanding and examining the patient as a whole.
