Dr. Whirley-Diaz's Bio
A Personal Note From The Doctor
Welcome to Medical Obesity Management of Indiana, lovingly referred to as MOMI. I chose this name for a reason. I have academically accomplished a great deal in my life. However, nothing has been more important than my family. I have been married for over 25 years, and when my husband’s job brought me back to my roots, I had the opportunity to be at home with my children for those important middle and high school years. Although I spent many years in formal schooling, nothing has been more educational than raising my children. They showed me the importance of listening and what a difference guidance and support can make.My medical training taught me extensively about the science of nutrition and metabolism, but it is my personal experiences that make my practice unique. I want to help you learn how to lose weight and, most importantly, how to keep it off and feel better in every way! I am here to listen, to offer guidance, and to inspire a healthy lifestyle. I look forward to partnering with you and caring for you as you reach your weight loss goals.
