Denise Lucero

Having a passion for being in the medical field, exploring for the best phlebotomy techniques and answering questions for all you lovely people is what I am known for. What you don’t know about me is that I am full-time mom to Briseis- 9 and Bryson- 2, Prince the German Shepard, Coco the Maltese, Benjy the hamster, and our new edition, 5 community fish. I am happily married, live in hipster Bushwick but was born and raised in the Lower East Side in Manhattan. I started with Dr. Dana Cohen as a Medical Assistant and now 10 years later I have recently been promoted to Office Manager. I am also currently back in school and looking to further my education as a Registered Nurse.

Leyla Muedin, MS, RD, CDN

Leyla has been a practicing nutritionist since 2003, when she started under the tutelage of the famed Dr. Robert Atkins at the Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine. From the beginning of her career, she has always practiced integrative nutrition in a clinical setting.

As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Leyla is a staunch believer in the power of medical nutrition therapy in wellness and healing throughout the lifecycle.  She’s an omnivore enjoying a whole foods diet that’s lower in carbohydrates.  And while dispensing exercise “prescriptions” to her patients as an important part of her practice, she herself enjoys yoga and strength training.

Leyla and her husband Paul split their time between New York City and out east where Leyla enjoys the beach and relishes Forest Bathing (Shinrin-yoku) in the nature preserve beyond their backyard.
