Medical Coaching

Kareboost Health with Dr. Karen offers medical advocacy and advisement for weight-related conditions and certain pediatric gastroenterology/nutrition cases through Medical Coaching. What does that mean? Medical coaching ensures your full understanding of your child’s existing diagnoses, provides insight into your doctor’s ordered laboratory and test results, and advocates for your best treatment plan with your whole person in mind.

As a Medical Coach, Dr. Karen does NOT:

  • take over the role of your child’s primary care doctor or pediatrician
  • manage your child’s care for any medical conditions
  • cover daytime or night-time emergencies
  • prescribe any medications, laboratory or radiological tests

As a Medical Coach, Dr. Karen provides the following services:

  • Holistic – Dr. Karen helps you and your child prepare for each important step in your child’s health by collaborating with your doctors’ care to develop a more holistic health and wellness approach to care for your WHOLE child.
  • Guidance – Dr. Karen reviews your doctor’s ordered laboratory and test results to provide guidance as to when it would be the best time to take the next step to see a subspecialist, such as a Pediatric Endocrinologist, for certain weight-related conditions and to prevent early unnecessary medical visits, which can add additional stress.
    • As she collaborated and practiced closely with the other Pediatric Subspecialists at Rutger’s-Robert Wood Johnson for several years, Dr. Karen knows the appropriate timing and indications as to when each subspecialist needs to see your child.
    • Weight-Related Conditions – Pre-diabetes, High Insulin, High Glucose, Type 2 Diabetes, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Metabolic Syndrome, Fatty Liver, Gallbladder Disease, Acanthosis Nigricans, Sleep Disorders/Snoring (Obstructive Sleep Apnea), Eating Disorder or Disordered Eating
  • Advocacy – Dr. Karen takes the TIME that you need, that your other doctors’ may not have during their busy clinic hours, to discuss your concerns about your child’s health and future, to provide reassurance, and to answer all of your questions that is possible WITHOUT providing any medical management about your child’s health conditions.
  • GI “GUT” Coaching – In Medical Coaching, Dr. Karen provides support and advocacy, but NOT Medical Management, on various Pediatric Gastro-Intestinal Diseases. After reviewing your child’s records, Dr. Karen helps you: 1) understand the approaches of your current GI doctor; 2) provide education and advocacy on your child’s GI condition, 3) work with you and your child to improve compliance with your doctor’s medical plan and medications, and 4) with The KB Way team, help teach your child various coping skills to deal with your child’s symptoms and condition.

We enjoyed the Karma Yoga Class that you had for CASA SHaW. The instructor was awesome! I very much appreciate your willingness to support CASA now and some time in the future with another event. I told all my friends how nice it was and highly recommended that they join us for the next time. You are all so kind with such caring hearts. Thank you again!

I have been working with Greg Bing for the past several months. I cannot say enough about the difference personal training has made to my body as well as my mind...He constantly gives as well as asks for feedback, so we are always working as a team. His encouragement motivates me to go the extra mile. Greg is very knowledgeable about anatomy and the technical aspects of movement and form. I cannot recommend Greg or KareBoost enough!

We have been fortunate enough to have Coach Greg from KareBoost speak to our group several times. Not only are the workshops informative, but Greg does a great job of personalizing them for the audience... We look forward to having Coach Greg and any other member of the KareBoost team back in the future.
