About Us

Years ago, Dr. Kendra Lynch realized there was a need to improve our ability to help the people of our community who were suffering from a growing epidemic of life-threatening obesity. Thus, in 2011, the Wellness Program, LLC was born, providing limited services to overweight patients in our area. As time passed, our program has grown! Dr. Kendra Lynch underwent sub-specialty training and was board certified in the field of Obesity Medicine in 2016. Since then, Wellness Life Center has grown into a full-service clinic offering everything from Family Medicine to IV infusions and in-depth genetic testing. We know every individual is unique and requires an individualized approach to their health and wellness and Wellness Life Center is committed to serving our community in this unique way!

Our Mission

The Wellness Life Center’s mission is to provide health care that ministers to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those we serve.
