Dr. Anthony M. Hicks, M.D., M.P.H
Anthony Hicks, MD is an Occupational Health Specialist with a focus on preventative care. Dr. Hicks has been practicing medicine for over 25 years, and obesity and the related problems created a frustration of having to prescribe more and more prescriptions. He knew the importance of food and nutrition playing a big role in living a healthy life. Preventive medicine was the answer and he wanted a program to improve and promote overall changes for a healthier lifestyle. He studied the Ideal Protein weight loss method, and found it to improve energy while reducing cravings and maintaining vitamin levels and muscle mass for long-term success. After participating in the protocol himself, he began offering it to his family and friends. They experienced such a great success, that soon he was offering it to his patients. The easy to follow program offers a true, long-term weight loss solution to anyone who wants to lose weight and make healthy lifestyle changes. Dr. Hicks’ professional organizations include the American Medical Association, Texas Medical Association and the American College of Occupational & Environmental Medicine.
