Maria Matthews RN, Clinical RN Nurse Manager

Maria Baldwin - MedShape Weight Loss ClinicsMaria decided to retire her position as an Emergency Room Nurse Manager for 30 years to join the MedShape team in 2009.  She brings MedShape the Clinical Management and her professional medical education. This is necessary to ensure the safest and most productive way of treating our MedShape patients.  Maria works directly with patients and staff. Her focus is implementing the newest and most progressive ways in weight loss known today.  “My way of treating a MedShape patient is not about the weight they want to lose, but concentrating on how they gained the weight”.  It is just as important to concentrate and focus on social and emotional needs. The underlying condition needs to be found to make changes that are necessary. In conclusion, this is important so MedShape patients make their weight loss success a long term goal, not a quick fix.

MedShape is also proud of our Certified, trained and professional Medical Assistants and MedShape Certified Health Consultants.
