Dr. Lauren Schnidman is passionate about helping patients engage in the activities they love without limitations.  She treats a variety of different patient populations, including recreational athletes and individuals focused on weight loss.

Lauren’s expertise is unique and personal, having struggled with weight management and sports injuries throughout her life and career.

She believes in a holistic approach to care that includes:
1. Addressing a patient as a whole person rather than by symptoms and pain alone

2. Providing individualized, comprehensive care instead of “cookie cutter” treatments
3. Treating the body as one interconnected system instead of as individual parts.

Lauren inspires patients to advocate for their own health and manage their symptoms proactively.

In her free time, Lauren enjoys working out, playing ping pong, and trying out new sushi restaurants. She is also an avid country music fan and loves attending concerts.
