Christie U. Egbuchunam, MD, MPH, Physician and Chief Executive Officer at Regency Healing Medical Clinic, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in bariatric medicine.
Dr. Egbuchunam is a physician specializing in diabetes and weight loss programs for more than 30 years. She recalls that “by the age of five,” she knew she wanted to become a doctor, and had “always aligned her career goals accordingly,” becoming a strong student and developing plans for medical school early in her life. Dr. Egbuchunam was awarded her Doctor of Medicine degree by the University of Nigeria in 1990, where she held a 4.0 GPA and was named an Outstanding First-Year Resident and Outstanding Third Year Resident before being chosen as Chief Resident in her final year of schooling. She relocated to the United States in the early 2000s and continued her career with a Master of Public Health and Epidemiology from the University of North Texas Health Science Center in 2002.
In 2004, Dr. Egbuchunam was again named Chief Resident of the Wichita Falls Family Practice Residency Program, who would elect her as their Most Dedicated Resident the following year. Upon graduation, she became a lead physician for Parkland Health and Hospital Systems in Dallas, Texas, where she continued to practice until 2010. Since then, Dr. Egbuchunam has fully embraced a clinical focus on bariatric medicine and weight loss, becoming the CEO and medical director of the Regency Healing MedSpa, LLC, and the Regency Healing Medical Clinic and Medical Weight Loss Center. She emphasizes that her practice is patient-driven and that she is motivated by a desire to work alongside her patients to develop strategies to take back their lives and bodies from obesity, a worldwide health crisis.
In addition to overseeing her staff and practice on a daily basis, Dr. Egbuchunam is active in academia, serving as a preceptor for student nurse practitioners at Walden University, Texas Woman’s University, and the University of Texas at Arlington since 2008. She has been published extensively, most recently her paper “High blood pressure in school children: Prevalence and Risk Factors,” and her thesis, “Potential predictors of hypertension among children in Fort Worth, Texas: A Cross-Sectional Epidemiologic Study,” was selected for inclusion in the Journal of Biomedical Research. Dr. Egbuchunam credits her success to her empathy, integrity, and compassion, adding that she is driven to help each patient connect with their health and that she has never put a patient through a course of treatment that she has not tried herself. As a part of her commitment to her patients and specialty, Dr. Egbuchunam is a member of the Texas Medical Association, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Public Health Association, among others.
