Dr. Brandan Dotson's Story
I started this health & wellness journey in the early-to-mid COVID pandemic era during which I worked tirelessly as a resident physician at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC), the only safety net hospital in San Jose. Unfortunately despite many safety measures, I caught covid prior to any known treatment or vaccines at the time. Fortunately I was never hospitalized for COVID, but I was debilitated by the virus. I vividly recall struggling to walk up a flight of stairs into my own apartment due to severe shortness of breath, and experiencing unbearable fatigue while performing the most basic household activities.
Throughout my time having covid, I honestly felt like a failure for catching the virus and I lived in constant fear of spreading it to my twin sister, whom I lived with at the time. This was compounded by feeling miserable as a person due to the stress of training to be a doctor, being obese and overall unhappy with myself. I remember nights crying in the shower, fearful if my symptoms were to worsen the next day. As the only doctor in my family, I kept thinking if I were to die then who would take care of my family? It was at this moment I decided to take control of my health. I knew that in order to take care of others, I needed to take care of myself first. I knew I needed to be a stronger and more resilient person.
After countless online research I found The Fit Clinic. I was personally drawn to Mike and Kathy’s stories, as well as other members’ transformations and personal health journeys. As a member of The Fit Clinic community, I have acquired priceless skills and knowledge which without a doubt helped me personally, but have even made me a better physician in terms of how I guide my own patients in their health and wellness journeys.
