About “Dr. A”

Dr ADr. Wayne S. Andersen is a New York Times Bestselling Author, the Co-founder of OPTAVIA™, an Optimal Health and lifestyle coaching company, and he is a nationally recognized leader in creating Optimal Health.

Dr. Andersen was the first in his family to enter college and graduate with honors from the University of Florida with a degree in Science. He went to medical school at the University for the Health Sciences in Kansas City, where he was valedictorian of his graduating class. He interned at Grandview Hospital and trained in open heart surgery at Cleveland Clinic before going on to train for two additional years at Jackson Memorial Hospital at the University of Miami. He then went on to become the tenth physician Board Certified in Critical Care and returned to the institution where he began his post graduate training, to set up the open heart program and surgical intensive care unit.

It was here that Dr. Andersen developed a profound understanding of the pivotal role that nutrition plays in disease and health. For eighteen years, Dr. Andersen directed the Surgical Critical Care Program at Grandview and was Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology. In 2000, he made a monumental decision to leave his hospital-based practice to devote his full energy to helping people to become and to stay healthy.

Dr. Andersen has since built an integrated support system (OPTAVIA™) that helps people make the necessary changes in their lifestyles to create optimal health. Using a team approach of health professionals working with Health Coaches, Dr. Andersen says we can provide leading edge nutritional solutions, medical support and the support of caring individuals, to provide the necessary one-on-one interaction so vital in changing peoples’ lives.
