“Mary” had been an active and vibrant woman, but slowly lost interest in the activities she loved. Then she saw urogynecologist Anna Frick, M.D., MPH, who helped her regain the life she had lost.

“Every year, about 46 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions, but only around 8 percent are successful at achieving them,” says Joline Heo, M.D., a board-certified internist who practices with Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation and is affiliated with Sutter Delta Medical Center. “Some of the biggest barriers to success are time, motivation and lack of commitment.”
