ABOUT Dr. Julie


Dr. Julie Wei-Shatzel is a Family Medicine physician in Fair Oaks, California. She received her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from the University of Des Moines, Iowa.  She trained at Garden City Hospital in Michigan, Mercy hospital in Redding, as well as the Mercy Family Practice residency in Sacramento. Her undergraduate degree was in cell biochemistry from the University of California, San Diego. 

As an undergraduate, she was interested in learning how our cells work, and participated in studies evaluating the tumor suppressor genes. Her special interest in Circadian Biology began in 2013 when she first learned about this field through Dr. Satchin Panda’s Lab research publications.  The Panda lab’s groundbreaking study on the principles of Time Restricted Eating was, and still is, a complete paradigm shift in how metabolism is understood. Dr. Julie Wei-Shatzel was lucky enough to begin one of the earliest collaborative studies with Dr. Panda’s lab on Time Restricted Eating in people wishing to improve their metabolism. Dr. Julie Wei-Shatzel has guided thousands of patients through the use of this method tailored to their particular lifestyle.
