Battling Eating Disorders

View Comments

drpitts Battling Eating DisordersWhen Dr. Patricia Pitts started her career as a therapist she vowed to treat anything but eating disorders. She had battled binge eating as a teen and, in her words, had ‘been there, done that.’

But, when she needed hours to earn her degree, she changed her mind. There were a lot of people suffering with anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders and, in the late 1970s, not a lot was known about the disease.

Her former struggle has become her calling. Dr. Pitts is now a highly-regarded expert in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating and other eating disorders.

Dr. Patricia Pitts is the founder and chief executive officer of The Bella Vita, a center that specializes in the treatment of eating disorders. She is a nationally-renowned expert in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and other disordered eating.
