About Me

I am a Triple Board-Certified Family, Obesity, and Lifestyle Medicine Physician, an Adjunct Clinical Professor at Morehouse School of Medicine, and the Founding CEO of Living At Your Finest Wellness, A Holistic Direct Primary Care Practice in East Cobb Marietta, Georgia.

I practiced Clinical and Academic Medicine at Morehouse School of Medicine, Department of Family Medicine, for 15 years. During this era, I participated in scholarly activities that led to presentations at local, regional, and national conferences and published in peer-reviewed journals on medical care, practice improvement, and curricular development for third- and fourth-year students. I was awarded numerous awards, such as Grady’s Department of Community Medicine Teacher’s Award for my Commitment to Teaching and the Future of Primary Care, Georgia Academy of Family Physician Family Medicine Educator of the Year, Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society, Certificate of Outstanding Achievement and 2021 Georgia Trend Magazine’s Top Doctors list.

I climaxed my academic career as a Professor and Director of Undergraduate Medical Education and Family Medicine and Rural Health Clerkship before I transitioned to opening my Holistic Direct Primary Care Practice in July 2023. As a Family Physician, I provide full-spectrum family medicine services to all ages, from cradle to cane. My area of expertise is helping Individuals and Families Live At Their Finest Well-being using a Holistic, Healthy Lifestyle Approach so you can Nourish and Flourish by being Whole, Vibrant, and Healthy, and prevent, treat (not just manage), and, most cases, reverse lifestyle-related chronic diseases.

I love to empower my patients, community, and learners about ways to restore health and wellness by discovering the root cause of preventable diseases. I am a wife, mother of 3, author of an inspirational book, adventure seeker, podcaster, lover of God, and a community builder through engagement with different organizations.

Genesis of “Living At Your Finest”

The diet-culture cycle and yo-yo weight fluctuations paralyzed me for numerous years. Despite my passion for Holistic Health, I quickly realized there was much to learn about attaining and maintaining Optimal Holistic Health and Wellness. The plethora of palatable food choices and unhealthy lifestyles led to the metabolic dysfunction I experienced in the form of hypertension, osteoarthritis, excess weight, inflammation, and chronic fatigue. It was time for the Physician to Heal Thyself!

This journey led to “Living At Your Finest Wellness.” I learned to get to the root cause of symptoms by attacking it at the source instead of solely relying on medications as a badge—WellCare instead of sick care, skills instead of pills, and whole person instead of processes.

By the grace of God, I live every day with intention, which has enabled me to LIVE AT MY FINEST WELL-BEING; body, mind, & spirit. This journey has led me to achieve METABOLIC HEALTH and WEIGHT WELLNESS.

The light bulb went up, and I couldn’t continue to practice “Sickcare medicine.”  with the focus on the symptoms instead of the source, so I pivoted and transitioned to establishing LIVING AT YOUR FINEST WELLNESS (LAYF Wellness), a Direct Primary Care Practice where I can promote and optimize health and wellness through a Holistic, Healthy Lifestyle Approach.

I adopt a Fun, Fundamental, and Faith-Based Framework as I integrate tools, tactics, tricks, and tips from my wellness journey and extensive professional training into my Direct Patient Care practice, Courses and coaching Programs, Speaking engagements, and educational and empowering resources using my YouTube Channel and Podcast Show.

Let’s journey together as Living At Your Finest Health Champions!

What I can't say enough good things about Dr. Babs, From the moment I walked into her practice at Living at your finest Wellness, I knew I was in capable hands. Her direct primary care approach is truly exceptional. The atmosphere she has created is truly inviting.The environment was spotless, and the calming music created a serene ambiance that felt like a sanctuary.I recently had an in-body comprehensive body scan at Living at your finest, and I couldn't be happier with my experience. She was exceptional in every way. She welcomed me warmly and took the time to explain my results in detail. While I have mostly made a conscientious effort to live healthy, having this scan gave me specific goals I can work on to improve my health span and lifespan based on objective data.I can wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Babs without reservation to anyone seeking top-notch primary care and a holistic approach to well-being. She is a wealth of knowledge and genuinely cares for her patients and community. Thank you, Dr. Babs, for your exceptional care!

I had a wonderful visit. I was able to ask questions. Dr. Babalola was very attentive to questions and concerns. She shared feedback. I couldn’t ask for a better doctor and I will share my experience with my friends who may need a primary care doctor. Dr. Babalola’s office was clean and convenient. Thanks Dr. Babalola for making my first visit great!

I have personally known Dr Babalola for the over 9 years and she is an excellent, caring and compassionate physician who wants to help her patients acheive, live and maintain their best lives.On entering LAYF wellness you are welcomed into a warm, calming and serene environment and also greeted with a smile.My parents saw her for their anual exams a few weeks ago and both expressed great satisfaction with the care they received both during and after their doctors appointment.If you are looking for a primary care physician who is vested in your health outcomes, consider Dr Babalola/LAYFWellness

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Babalola. She is professional, caring, thorough and knowledgeable. Most importantly she doesn't rush you out like other doctors. The new facility is well laid out and clean and provides a relaxing and accommodating environment.
