Jennifer’s story is an important one, which is why she’s at the top of this page. She’s overcome so much to find herself again after having her identity stripped from her by an abusive husband. In 2009, she was a competitive bodybuilder, and in 2010, she didn’t know who she was anymore; her work ethic, confidence, and self esteem went into the toilet in the span of just a year. She was treated for depression and PTSD by her primary care physician, but as time passed, she didn’t feel any better. She knew that her life and her kids’ lives could be better — she had to do something.
She came to see Dr. Galvin and her life has changed so much since making that decision that she’s been kind enough to write her story for us to use on this very page.Learn More about Jennifer’s Story

Donna was Vitality Medical Wellness Institute’s very first patient. One night as she was leaving the hospital where she worked as an Assistant Director of Radiology, Donna labored up four flights of stairs and when she reached the top, she had to sit down to catch her breath; she couldn’t even make it to her car. That single moment changed the course of Donna’s life. She knew something had to change.
With the guidance and support of Vitality Medical Wellness Institute, Donna retook her health. With very little exercise, she turned her entire life around. Donna remains the template for success by which we suggest our current and future patients model themselves. Like her smile, Donna’s dedication is infectious and it is currently spreading through her entire family like a wildfire.
After hearing her story and reviewing her lab work, Dr. Galvin knew that we could help Alisha meet the remainder of her weight loss goals while tackling her Lupus at the same time. He suggested that she enter our body transformation program to do just that. When she received her initial DEXA Body Composition Scan, the results were very surprising to her, but unfortunately common for us to see.
When Alisha came to us, she was 44% body fat. Almost all of our patients who struggle with their weight are shocked to discover that their body fat is high even though they’ve been working their butts off in the gym. Part of Alisha’s experience was to learn just how important the balance is between exercise and diet. Over the next 7 months of her life, Alisha came in once a week to discuss her nutritional choices and to get her mind settled for the next week.
David’s energy level was terrible, he felt terrible, and like many people, he was frustrated with the weight loss industry in general. Luckily, his wife Alisha had come to see us a few months earlier and after seeing her success, David decided to give it a shot. We’re so glad he did!
In the few months that would follow, David would undergo one of the fastest and most amazing body re-compositions that we have on record here at Vitality Medical Wellness Institute. What’s even more amazing is that David’s metabolism hadn’t recovered fully from his last starvation diet ordeal when he enrolled in our Health Optimization program.
Mabel came into Vitality Medical Wellness Institute with a healthy skepticism â€” or unhealthy. She had high cholesterol. Her neighbors Dr. Galvin and Paula Galvin had been hounding her to come in to talk about her health. When her DEXA Body Composition Scan results came back at 42.2%, Mabel was NOT happy. She reluctantly agreed to let us help her.
For the first three months of her time at Vitality, Mabel did her own research trying desperately to debunk the techniques she was being taught and that Dr. Galvin was utilizing to optimize her health. Little by little, Mabel’s defense mechanisms finally gave way, and so did the body fat.
You may recognize Brentson Buckner as one of the most dominant defensive linemen in Carolina Panthers history. He was the anchor of the defensive line that took the Panthers to the Superbowl against the New England Patriots in 2004.

His overall health was suffering for it and he worried about the future of his wife and children. After speaking with Dr. Galvin and formulating a plan of action, Brentson started on a new path that would correct many of the health problems he came in with and also get him back into playing shape at the age of 41.
