Meet Dr. Youdim
Dr. Adrienne Youdim, MD, FACP, offers specialized services in medical weight loss, medical nutritional therapy, and nutritional and metabolic support of bariatric surgery patients at her practice in Beverly Hills, California. Her mindful approach to medicine integrates her education, hospital training, and academic research with her personal values grounded in integrity, empathy, and authenticity.
Dr. Youdim is a nationally respected teacher, speaker, and thoughtful leader in her field. In her private practice, she follows a holistic approach that blends lifestyle changes with evidence-based medicine. She creates a customized treatment plan for each patient, whether for primary weight loss or to treat obesity-related diseases.
One of the principles of her practice is to provide both inspiration and information. Dr. Youdim encourages her patients not only to consider logistics and a plan but also to engage their why— the motivating principle that inspires them. She gives her patients information relevant to their weight-loss journey, including resources to keep them inspired, such as meal recipes, meditation apps, books, and mindfulness practices.
After receiving her degree from the University of California San Diego School of Medicine, Dr. Youdim completed her residency training and fellowship at Cedars-Sinai. She holds multiple board certifications awarded by the American Board of Internal Medicine, the National Board of Physician Nutrition Specialists, and the American Board of Obesity Medicine. She’s also a Fellow of the American College of Physicians.
Dr. Youdim served as the Medical Director of the Cedars-Sinai Weight Loss Center, then brought her passion and expertise to founding the Center for Weight Loss and Nutrition at the preeminent Lasky Clinic in Beverly Hills, California. She also currently holds positions as associate professor of medicine at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and clinical associate professor of medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Her credits include a long list of publications, such as scientific articles in professional journals and several book chapters about obesity, metabolic syndrome, and nutrition for “The Merck Manual: Home Health Handbook.” Her most recent publication is a comprehensive textbook, “The Clinician’s Guide to the Treatment of Obesity.”
Dr. Youdim has been featured on Fox News, CBS News, Good Day LA, Dr. Oz, The Doctors, and Dr. Phil. She has also been on NPR radio and highlighted in W Magazine and the Los Angeles Times.
With a line of vitamins, minerals, and supplements available to the public through her online store, Dr. Youdim fills a much-needed gap by providing pure, high-quality, and sustainably sourced products that aren’t currently available on the market.
