Meet the Doctor
Dina Pavilonis, MD
I am a double boarded certified physician in the field of Family Medicine and Bariatric (Obesity) Medicine. I completed my residency training at Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago, IL. I worked as a primary care doctor for six years before choosing to focus on Bariatric and Functional Medicine. I am a member of American Medical Association, American Academy of Family Physicians, Obesity Medicine Association and American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
The urge to select a different approach to medicine was stimulated by the sharp increase of the patients that suffer complex chronic diseases including cancer, diabetes, mental illnesses and heart diseases. Acute care approaches to the management of health situations fall short addressing individual health conditions. Thus, a functional approach to the delivery of care is bound to offer a comprehensive mechanism to address chronic diseases to the society. Welcome to our clinic whereby health is a holistic concept. Green Circle Wellness Clinic integrates a variety of concepts including diet, lifestyle and even stress factors that may have adverse effects on the health of a patient.
