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.

Faith

Nutritionist

Faith is a Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant through the Nutritional Therapy Association with a completed Bachelor's Degree from Ball State University. She truly believes that the preventative approach to medicine is key to eliminating most of the diseases we see today. Our bodies are very powerful and have the knowledge and capability to heal themselves if given the correct tools. Faith shifted careers in nutrition after rising above some personal health issues of her own. She was able to experience a complete shift within her body and mind after discovering the root cause of her health issues; allowing her to view nutrition and the necessity of proper nutrition in a way she has never experienced before. Faith then began her training as a Holistic Nutritionist to be able to help others thrive and reach their optimal levels of health.
