Dr. Maita began her medical career as an attending physician in hospitals and clinics including St. Luke’s/Roosevelt Hospital, Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, Executive Health Examiners New York Stock Exchange clinics and others. After one year, she decided that she wanted to write, teach and develop programs to address the critical needs of patients and to prevent illness. She fulfilled this desire while serving as Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at Prudential Financial where she decreased the cost of workers compensation claims, helped people lower their blood pressure, lose weight, deal with chronic illness, and developed preventive health and wellness, executive health and travel health programs for employees traveling overseas. Her methods proved that wellness worked and she was given approval to build 7 new health and fitness centers.

Dr. Maita was deeply affected by the illnesses her family faced: her father died of cancer, grandmother had a massive stroke, older brother was brain damaged from an accident and her youngest brother was blind. Since these medical issues couldn’t be changed, Dr. Maita began to focus on prevention. Today, she treats individuals with vague to severe health complaints or those who simply feel a loss of self and deteriorating health.
Many of her clients have been told by doctors that their health issue comes with age and nothing can be done aside from providing them with medication. “I found that the cookie cutter approach of treating a patient’s symptoms just with drugs for specific ailments does not fundamentally change anything, it only makes them dependent on drugs,” says Dr. Maita. “Through understanding the causative factors and a person’s unique genetic and metabolic make up, along with their lifestyle, how they manage stress and what they do as preventive measures, as well as incorporating fitness, nutrition, supplements and hormones, profound changes take place that are sustainable and gives people their life back.”
