"Dr. Tania", as she is affectionately called, is also a member of the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine, as well as, a member of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. She is currently pursuing her board certification in Obesity Medicine. Dr. Akers-White was born and raised in Washington, D.C. She has been practicing medicine in the Richmond, VA area for almost ten years. Here she describes how her passion inspired her to go solo. "As I was working in other areas of healthcare, mostly hospitals, I felt like something was missing. It seemed like medicine was becoming more like a business and losing touch with the people. I searched for a way to bridge the gaps." She later founded the Lifestyle & Wellness Medical Center. At first, she wanted to fill a void for medically supervised weight loss programs in the area. Over the years, center has evolved and now also offers aesthetic services, such as liposuction and body contouring. Not only does Dr. Tania work hard to keep people healthy, but she also strives to help people feel and look good!
