My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy in caring for my patients is centered on identifying the underlying source of their medical problems and working in partnership with them towards true solutions, which is nearly always attainable through nutrition and fitness based recommendations. I have learned that the keys to success involve empowering patients with knowledge, then working together toward goals of vitality and true wellness. Furthermore, I lead by example, doing my best to eat cleanly, exercise regularly, and maintain an ideal body weight year round.

2016 I was questioning the necessity to be a part of Dr. Lafleur's MDVIP program because I was not suffering with chronic conditions on an ongoing basis and I was contemplating whether or not to discontinue the service because it was not medically necessary, but I knew I wanted to stay healthy and I resonated with his philosophies. In Dec. 2016, my husband died unexpectedly and I can… See more

from Greg in LA March 12, 2020 for Edward C. Lafleur, MD

Before visiting with you I experienced 4-5 migraines each week and began to accept it as my new norm. I don’t like taking medication and prefer natural remedies. You opened my eyes to nutrition, sleep, and exercise improvements that changed my life. Migraine frequency dropped immediately. It continues to decrease as time progresses as the lessons are incorporated as permanent and very… See more

from Gerard in LA March 10, 2020 for Edward C. Lafleur, MD

I was blessed with a son, our only child, at the ripe young age of 41. I have always told my son, on my way out the door to exercise, that, "Daddy was working to keep a healthy heart, so he can still play with you when you get older."

The problem was, I didn't do this very often. I also ate too much, ate poorly, and drank too much. Daddy did NOT have a healthy heart.… See more

from Nancy in LA March 8, 2018 for Edward C. Lafleur, MD

Dr. Ed Lafleur has helped myself and my husband, Peter in many areas pertaining to our health. We both are so thankful we have a physician we can contact when we need and can get in to see him right away. He is also very understanding and patient with us. We both feel our health is much better - Thanks Dr. Lafleur!
Peter adds - I sure do miss eating BAD!!

from Jim in LA March 4, 2018 for Edward C. Lafleur, MD

I simply appreciate Dr. LaFleur taking time to engage in conversations not necessarily related to health issues. Discussing family, friends, mutual interests, etc.,is , in itself, a healthy experience-----a sincere experience.

from Rhonda in LA March 4, 2018 for Edward C. Lafleur, MD

I lost my husband in a tragic accident in Dec. 2016. It was very comforting to know that Dr. LaFleur was easily accessible if I needed anything during the most difficult time of my life. He and his staff, Blair and Jamie, were very compassionate and did whatever they could do to address my request in a very timely manner. I always felt very comfortable knowing he was a phone call away, day… See more
