Dr Jeffry Gerber is a board-certified family physician and owner of South Suburban Family Medicine in Littleton, Colorado, where he is known as “Denver’s Diet Doctor”. He has been providing personalized healthcare to the local community since 1993 with an emphasis on longevity, wellness and prevention. Nutrition and its effects on health are among his main areas of interest.

He maintains a database of patients, looking at weight loss and improved cardio-metabolic markers, demonstrating the benefits of these types of diets.
Dr Gerber is co-author with chemical engineer and data scientist Ivor Cummins of Eat Rich, Live Long, released in February 2018.
