Charles Glassman, MD: How He Forms a Partnership with His Patients TPS164

TPS164Charles F. Glassman, MD, has been known as Coach MD since 2011. This designation arises from what he has learned in his over 25 years of practice as a medical doctor. Specifically, that many, if not most, problems people go to the doctor to solve actually stem from the challenges of daily life. Instead of giving a pill to try and make them go away, Coach MD’s mission is to help people achieve total wellness—having more control over life than one could ever think possible.

Dr. Glassman’s goal is to deliver a new type of health care, transformational health care, turning sickness into health and health into optimal wellness – body, mind, and spirit working as one.
