Robin Berzin, M.D., Has a Style Motto Inspired by Her Bedside Manner: Comfortable, but Confident
The founder and CEO of Parsley Health, a membership-based holistic practice, shares her daily essentials—from her go-to protein powder to her favorite espresso machine (that she brings everywhere—literally).
Blond wood, soft pink sofas, thriving houseplants, kombucha on tap: This clearly isn't your typical doctor's office. Founded by Ivy League-trained physician Robin Berzin, Parsley Health is a membership-based holistic practice (with centers in Los Angeles, New York City, and San Francisco) that marries comprehensive treatment with modern 24/7 messaging and video chats. "Doctors are trained to be the investigative journalists of medicine," Berzin tells us. "But we need more than 20 minutes once a year to do that."
So, Berzin simply takes more time—a happy anomaly, to say the least, in the sphere of today's fast-paced clinical models. Her patients can end an hour at an appointment, discussing nutrition, fitness, and sleep, and undergoing in-depth testing. "My goal is to transform the health of people across America," says the mom, whose style is "comfortable but confident," just like her bedside manner.
As for Berzin's wellness prescription? Eat real, whole foods, and "find one way to move and one way to relax that you love. After all, the story of your health is the story of your life," she says. Ahead, the doctor shares the story of her own life through the products—across all facets of her day-to-day—that she reaches for regularly. From the enzyme-based exfoliator that keeps her skin clear and fresh to the modern dinnerware that graces her table in the evening, the physician's overarching approach to style is much like her view on wellness: balanced, but full of the best options currently out there.
