Meet Dr. Elise Atkins

Hi! I’m Dr. Elise Atkins and I founded Coastal Vitality MD to help you live your healthiest life.

Back in 2018, I thought my own health was just fine, until I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. That led me to realize that I suffered pretty regularly from irritable bowel syndrome, frequent respiratory infections and a host of other bothersome issues. Once I discovered the power of lifestyle medicine, my health problems melted away and my journey toward living my own healthiest life began.

Now I’m grateful to experience more health and more life, whether I’m hiking up a mountain or simply enjoying good food with friends and family.

I aspire to live many more healthy years appreciating nature’s bounty, strengthening my personal relationships and finding purpose in my work.

Perhaps you dream of having more energy to travel, loving how you look and feel in your clothing, getting down on the floor — and back up again! — to play with your grandchildren, or something else entirely. Whatever your aspirations, I get up each morning so I can empower people like you to create your own life-changing success stories and turn your dreams into reality.

“Doc, you were right!!! Since our last conversation, I have eaten a plant based diet. I did not think that it could possibly make a change so quickly. My husband did it with me and he had great results as well. I also have lost about 6 pounds and have more energy than ever, so that is a plus. I never would have believed it. The miraculous thing is that anyone can get better in such a short amount of time. Amazing, thank you!”
