Our Founder & Medical Director -

Sunil S. Jhangiani, MD, MBA, FACP, AGAF. The American Board of Physician Nutrition Specialists (ABPNS) provides a credential that recognizes physician expertise in clinical nutrition. In 1986, Dr Sunil S. Jhangiani, MD, became one of a handful of physicians certified by ABPNS, and has maintained his certification to this day. In addition, he is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, Gastroenterology, and Managed Care Medicine. He is a fellow of the American College of Physicians (FACP), fellow of the American Gastroenterological Association (AGAF), and a member of the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) and the American Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN). Seeing first-hand that preventable health risk factors - such as improper diet and inactivity - were largely to blame for the burden of illness and reduced productivity among his patients in the New York metro area, Dr. Jhangiani successfully incorporated nutrition counseling and weight management services into his practice. Being a MBBS graduate from India (University of Mumbai-1980), and witnessing similar issues affecting urban India, Dr. Jhangiani is now bringing nutrition management services directly to consumers, health care providers and corporates at home. Dr. Jhangiani is a frequently invited speaker at numerous health care and nutrition forums in the NYC area. He has given interviews and shared his expertise on TV, radio, and the print media. His keen insight into health care trends and strategy have resulted in numerous publications, especially in The New York Times, Letters to the Editor section. His speech, "Health Care in America: Reform through Communication," delivered at the 8th Annual American Communication Association Convention at Georgetown University, Washington D.C., in 2002, was published in the April 15th 2003 issue of "Vital Speeches of the Day." In July 2007, the Consumers Research Council of America selected Dr. Jhangiani as one of America's Top Physicians in the areas of Nutrition and Gastroenterology.
