Professional Statement

In an era of volume driven care where patients often find themselves shuffled from specialist to specialist, Dr. Nance and her team at WellessenceMD are breaking the mold by providing personalized, comprehensive, evidenced based, compassionate health care. After graduating with honors from Princeton University, Dr. Nance finished second in her class from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and completed her internal medicine residency training at the University of Chicago. She practiced primary care for eight years before starting to study obesity medicine because of the significant increase in diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol she was seeing in her patients. After passing the American Board of Obesity medicine exam in 2012, Dr. Nance started offering weight management and nutrition services in addition to high quality primary care. Dr. Nance uses the latest blood tests to determine the risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes in her patients. She then customizes wellness plans to help each patient achieve their healthiest self, and supports them throughout their journey. In addition to providing high quality primary care and nutritional services, Dr. Nance is also certified to provide Mindfulness Based Interventions from the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness to help patients living with chronic pain, cravings and addictions, anxiety, depression, and other chronic medical issues. Dr. Nance prides herself on addressing everything that feeds into a patient’s overall well being, resulting in a truly patient centered health care experience.

I would recommend this Dr if you are looking for help with weight loss. She tries to sell you on joining classes to teach you about"mindful eating" and tries to get you on a meal replacement plan for a fee. In my case however, I needed answers about the state of my health and agreed to a full blood panel to find out why I'm so tired all the time and having trouble with weight even though I'm doing everything right. I felt more like this office was a weight watchers in disguise. Maybe not for me.

My visit with Dr Nance was great. She was very attentive to my questions and addressed my concerns. Since it was my first time there, she did a brief checkup and asked a few questions about my general health history. My first impression was that she's very compassionate and cares a lot about her patients' health and well-being.

Waste of time. She's a joke. Went in for blood pressure visit. Wanted me to join her meditation club. I'm like no I just want my blood pressure under control. Waited almost two hours for nothing. They never called my prescription in after I called the office the next day and they said they were doing it now. Still no prescription. Seriously look for a more reliable Dr.

It was just my initial visit, but I like Dr. Nance. Her office is very nice. Looked more like a spa than a doctor's. Wasn't sure I was in the right place, but I like it much better. Relaxing and inviting. Dr. Nance was personable. I'm looking forward to the next appointments which will be testing and follow ups. She also does weight management, which I may take advantage of.

This was the first time that I was in to see Dr. Nance. I don't go to doctors often because I hate the process and don't have much time to take care of myself as a busy mom. Dr. Nance recommended other doctors and gave me referrals for other specialists. She was also very conscious of insurance coverage and giving me options to take care of things the day I came in so that I didn't need a return visit.

I was impressed all the way around -- my first appointment. She was right on time and efficient with time but still plenty of time to discuss my situation. Was most impressed with various state of the art tests run to gather needed data for follow up appointment to determine action plan on weight loss.

I tried to get in for a physical at the end of the year since I had already met my deductible and had not yet had one this year. I chose Dr. Nance because of the glowing reviews on ZocDoc and the proximity to my office. After waiting more than half an hour and filling out a questionnaire that I had already filled out online, I was called in for my appointment. She asked me if I had remembered to fast and I said no, no one had instructed me to do so. She said ok well then we won't even call this an appointment- we can just chat. The majority of the appointment was her giving a sales pitch for a weight loss app she had developed. I explained to her that my own weight loss plan was working well but that if I sought any changes I would follow up with her. I was later billed for a full appointment- I was there about 15 minutes even after she told me that this would not be considered an appointment. I never even got my physical.
