Clayton MD Total Health

Patients are not only dropping pounds, but pills thanks to Dave Clayton, MD, a Scripps internist who founded Clayton MD Total Health in Sorrento Valley to turn back the clock on aging and prevent and reverse disease. The medically supervised nutrition and exercise program offers group fitness classes, nutritional counseling and one-on-one medical consultations. Clayton works out with his patients, shares nutrition tips, and swaps recipes. Patients say results have been remarkable. Mark Segars, 71, lost more than 40 pounds, and stopped taking several medications. So has John Engel, 73, who dropped 20 pounds. Sixty-seven-year-old Paul Fanfera, a heart patient, who took off 45 pounds, credits Clayton with not only motivating him to take charge of his health, but saving his life.
