Dr. Jennifer Schmidt
Dr. Jennifer Schmidt is originally from the Chicago area. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Loyola University of Chicago in 1988. Following graduation, Dr. Schmidt performed research at Searle Pharmaceutical Company until 1991, and then began medical school, realizing that she desired to help others in a personal way. She graduated from Midwestern University in 1995 and completed her Family Practice residency at Mac Neal hospital in Berwyn, IL in 1999, an affiliate of Rush Hospital in Chicago. Dr. Schmidt served as clinical faculty at the Mac Neal Family Practice residency program the year following her graduation, before relocating to North Carolina in 2000. She is a board certified physician and an active member in the North Carolina Medical Society.
After relocating to North Carolina, Dr. Schmidt has practiced Family Medicine since 2000. As a physician who practices holistic medicine, she became increasingly concerned about the obesity epidemic and the host of serious illnesses associated with excessive weight. She began practicing Bariatric Medicine as part of her Family Practice in 2009, after receiving bariatric training. Dr. Schmidt is an active member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians.
Dr. Schmidt established Doctors Weight Loss Center of Cary in 2010 to provide people with weight issues access to a practice committed to delivering quality, comprehensive and compassionate care. She is passionate about helping her patients achieve the best health possible through lifestyle modification, and treats each patient individually and with respect.
