"Working with Dr. Parmele has been a fun and eye opening experience. When I started with her I was perfectly healthy by most people's standards and she raised the bar for me to be even healthier, happier and more energetic. Having my DNA analyzed has given me insight into potential health risks and also why I have certain personality traits!
For me Dr. Parmele is the perfect motivator. She helped me set goals and follows up to see if I am on track with them. If not always, they are still written down and not forgotten. Just part of the journey. The best part is, Dr. Parmele lives what she preaches so it's easy to see it works!"
Missy DiGiulian, 3-time Ironman and 8-time IM70.3 finisher, November, 2020
"Everyone should have a Dr. Parmele. She's compassionate and empathetic and her insight is brilliant. In addition to encouraging me to be my best advocate, she helped me truly identify and articulate my goals and fashion an action plan. I love that she's a doctor who emphasizes nutrition and fitness as part of a whole approach to living my best life."

"I am delighted to write a testimonial for Katerina (Kathy) Tsapos Parmele MD, FACEP with whom I have worked for the last 18 months. She has coached me in the areas of Burnout prevention and well-being - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Though our dominant focus was fitness and nutrition, more recently she has helped me in my journey to be a certified executive coach, which I completed successfully. I have always found Kathy to be very self-aware, empathetic, unassuming and a well-rounded coach. She leads by example by maintaining good boundaries by clearly and proactively communicating about any issues. She has a very calm, compassionate and non-judgmental manner. I have really benefited with her coaching and it has helped me to make a significant shift in the areas of fitness & nutrition. Also, the coaching has helped me to continue thriving in a highly demanding job and to manage all the challenges which came my way in a remarkably effective manner. Her work has helped me to maintain my physical, emotional, and mental well-being at a high level. This was evidenced by a measurable improvement in all aspects of wellbeing in a functional medicine, self-care questionnaire, with a high validity and accuracy. I am very grateful for the work I have done with Kathy and would unreservedly recommend her as a wellness, fitness & nutrition, high performance, burnout prevention coach to anyone who is looking for world class support in these areas. Her own credentials and life, including racing Ironman successfully six times demonstrates her commitment to these areas. One could not find a more authentic coach and I have found it a privilege to work with her. Thank you."

"I used Dr. Parmele’s services on several occasions, and I highly recommend for anyone interested in self improvement (especially regarding nutrition, exercise, and physical health and wellness.) The process is centered on you: your medical history, your current abilities, your goals, etc. She is thorough in gathering appropriate information about you in order to create an optimal plan to see meaningful improvements. Honest and compassionate in approach, yet science-based and practical in problem solving: she really is a highly effective and altruistic medical professional. I always left our conversations with new knowledge, a plan to improve, and motivation to do so. She will continue to work with you as long as it will benefit you, but eventually you will be armed with the knowledge and skills necessary to be a healthier person for your self and those around you. Dr. Parmele genuinely cares about your health and well-being and is so easy to communicate with. She is also flexible with time and payments when needed. My highest recommendation."

"Dr Parmele is amazing! She is supportive, knowledgeable and passionate about helping and healing others. She indeed helps to pave the way to self-discovery, self-discipline and self-healing with the use of nutrition and meditation!"

"Working with Kathy on setting goals for better health and better health outcomes has been very helpful and rewarding. Her skills in helping with co-discovery and then guiding and coaching brings solutions to a problem that we all struggle with. Wanting to do something is one thing, but committing to it and being held accountable is another. Thanks Kathy for your help!"
