Dr. David LaMond


D.O., A.B.F.P.
Medical Director, North Carolina Offices

Dr. LaMond is a nutrition, hormone and prevention expert. Drawing from his foundation and board certification in Family Medicine, he has created the core medical principles behind the blue sky concept of total patient care. He is an active member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery and American Academy of Family Physicians. He has been a featured speaker for numerous medical conferences and has been a consultant and has made several appearances on health television broadcasts. His written work has been featured in medical journals and other print media, with a focus on insulin resistance, nutrition, non-invasive cosmetic procedures, and wellness. Dr. LaMond is a luminary, speaker and consultant for Eleme Medical, Osyris and Candela Corporations and is an expert in non-invasive and minimally invasive body contouring and cosmetic laser surgery.

Drawing from his training experience in residency, winning consecutive post-baccalaureate teaching awards for the best resident teacher for medical students at Albany Medical College, he developed a love for teaching others. This teaching experience translated into a hands-on, approachable and easy to understand weight control program for patients. After years of development and thousands of successful weight control patients, he discovered a link between weight control and hormone optimization. This led to the development of a comprehensive hormone optimization program, which works in harmony with weight control and aging skin. His objective is total patient care and feeling great, inside and out.

Dr. LaMond is Board Certified by the American Board of Family Practice. After graduating from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, PA in 2001, Dr. LaMond completed an Internship and Family Medicine Residency at Albany Medical College in Albany, NY.

She ended up choosing the field of medicine after graduating and went on to get a degree in respiratory therapy and in nursing. She worked for years in pediatric critical care. She eventually went on to get her Master’s (MSN) specializing as a Family Nurse Practitioner.

She landed in medical aesthetics. Her background in art made the transition to facial aesthetics very intuitive. The opportunity to work with a very large number of patients in a small amount of time fine-tuned her skill at natural-looking filler placement. Her excellent results drew the attention of a national aesthetics company who positioned her to become a physician trainer.

Aesthetics offers me a creative outlet and enhances people’s lives. When they look better, they feel better.
