Jennifer McCabe Lentz, MD

Dr. Jennifer McCabe Lentz has been practicing family medicine for over 20 years. Dr. Lentz completed her Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from the University of Colorado School of Medicine in 2001 and the Fort Collins Family Medicine Residency in 2004. She received a Family Medicine Certification (FMC) from the American Board of Family Medicine in 2004.
She then spent 4 years practicing family medicine in rural Washington before coming home to Fort Collins, in Northern Colorado.

She opened Direct Family Care of Northern Colorado (DFC) in January 2018.

In her years practicing family medicine, Dr. Lentz realized that combining lifestyle changes with medication resulted in more successful long-term results. Her approach focuses on dedicated personalized counseling on lifestyle habits and food changes.

In 2016, Dr. Lentz began taking extensive additional training to become a Diplomate in Obesity Medicine—she received the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) diplomate in 2017. She has been a long-time advocate of Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) and Intermittent Fasting (IF) to treat metabolic disorders. Not only has she seen success with her patients, but both she and her family live a healthy LCHF lifestyle. Dr. Lentz is a founding member of the Society of Metabolic Health Practitioners (SMHP) and is accredited by the SMHP.

Dr. Lentz is passionate about her patients. She strives to build a true doctor-patient relationship with each of her clients and work in partnership with them to live a healthier life through good nutrition.

She chose to become a direct primary care provider because it allows her to provide excellent care and removes the obstacles and hassles of the insurance-based American healthcare system.
