Meet Our Amazing Medical Provider Team

Yazen Joudeh, MD

Obesity Specialist | Illinois

"My passion is to help people achieve healthier lifestyles and weight and to improve weight-related comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease."

Rami Bailony, MD, M.S

Obesity Specialist | California

"The scale is not the problem. The problem is the stigma we as a society place on people with increased weight driven by the misconception that our weight is somehow a representation of our character. We need to move away from judging ourselves by our weight. It’s a number, its reminder, it’s something we track but it does not tell you the whole story.It certainly does not tell you what a marvelous or wonderful person you are. When people ask me what we do at Enara, I often say we help people manage their weight but more importantly we help them see past their weight. "

Danielle Traub, RD, CSOWM

Dietitian | California

"I’ve had to keep a close eye on my weight all of my life and was grateful to turn my passion for food and nutrition into a career. I find obesity fascinating from a scientific perspective, working with patients to reach their health goals personally rewarding, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else anywhere but Enara."

Adrian Guardado, CSCS

Exercise Specialist | California

"At Enara, it is my goal as an Exercise Specialist to help my patients achieve any physical fitness goals they may have. I encourage my patients to view exercise as medicine as they create new healthy habits that prioritize movement and activity. Working together with my patients, we create a plan to make exercise a lifestyle rather than a chore."


Viveca Taylor, MPH, RD

Dietitian | California

"My aim as a provider is to help patients develop a style of eating that they enjoy and that honors their health goals. I love Enara’s “whole food” approach to weight loss because it really encourages people to develop a food routine that is both nutritious and (more importantly) sustainable. As someone with an academic background in public health, much of my degree was oriented around the importance of preventive healthcare, and it’s incredibly rewarding to see that firsthand everyday."


Daisha Bonhomme, MS, CHWC, CPT

Health Coach | Texas, Illinois

"As a health coach, I strive to help all of my patients reach their ideal vision of health and wellness. It is my honor to help all of my patients make sustainable behavior changes that fit their lifestyles and ultimately become their best selves! "


Tony Ricci

Exercise Specialist | California

"It is my life’s mission and greatest passion to help others discover how much success and enjoyment one can experience with exercise and physical activity. Providing care and motivation to help people enrich their lives in a fun and effective manner is my favorite aspect of working in this field. "


Samad Khan, MD

Family Medicine | Texas

"Integrating Enara’s weight loss program into my primary care practice has allowed me and the Wellhealth team to help our patients reverse chronic disease. "


Sonal Dhuper, M.D

Obesity Specialist | California

"I enjoy partnering with my patients to help manage their weight so they can enjoy a healthier and better quality of life. I like to empower my patients with the evidence based tools to help them manage the chronic disease of OBESITY."


Lydia Alexander, MD

Obesity Specialist | California

"Being a weight loss specialist is absolutely the best career choice I could ever make. In medical school, I dreamed of helping improve the health of patients when I finished my training. In residency, I often treated patients who had just suffered heart attacks, strokes, or needed dialysis. This always left me wondering what their stories were prior to such devastating events and with the desire to help before these serious health problems developed. As part of Enara, this is exactly what I get to do - Helping my patients achieve a healthier weight reverses diabetes, prediabetes, improves cholesterol, mobility, sleep, blood pressure and more. "

Bridget Petrowsky, PA

Physician Assistant | Texas, Illinois, California

"I am passionate about healthy living and take a holistic approach in helping patients achieve their long term health goals. I enjoy building relationships with patients and working with them to make positive changes. I believe by addressing nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress and social connections, patients can become empowered to live happier, healthier lives. "


Stephanie Chen, RD

Dietitian | California

"I became a Registered Dietitian to combine my love for food with my passion for healthy living. I enjoy all things wellness and beauty - especially if it’s also eco-friendly and sustainable. When I’m not working, you can find me hiking or exploring while catching Pokémon, or occasionally enjoying the thrill of a roller coaster ride."


Dana Ilvedson, RD

Dietitian | California

"Growing up as an active kid and food lover, I was excited to combine my passions for health and nutrition by becoming a registered dietitian. I enjoy the unique opportunity at Enara of developing long-lasting relationships with my patients, and having the chance to watch them make real lifestyle and behavioral changes that are sustainable. Outside of work, I enjoy being creative in the kitchen, staying active, and traveling (and eating!) all over the world."


Andrea Pollema, MD

Obesity Specialist | California

"I have a passion to assist patients on their journey to better health. I enjoy equipping people with tools so they can reverse chronic conditions, reduce their medications, and regain control of their lives."


Michael Shelver, MS
