How many times have you felt that your doctors don’t listen and instead blame every health issue on your weight? How many times have you skipped an appointment because you were too afraid of being judged for your weight? The local moms who founded knownwell have been there — it’s a feeling they know all too well.

In a world where healthcare often takes a one-size-fits-all approach, knownwell is proud to provide empathetic and individualized care that fits all bodies. More than just a clinic, knownwell is a local community that celebrates your unique journey toward wellness.

knownwell was co-founded by two local Boston moms, Brooke Boyarsky Pratt and Dr. Angela Fitch, who have seen firsthand how difficult it is to find weight-inclusive care that acknowledges the importance of empathy and understanding in the healing process.

After years of trying to find a great primary care doctor who could also treat her obesity, Brooke was fortunate to be introduced to Dr. Angela Fitch. Dr. Fitch is the president of the Obesity Medicine Association and was most recently the co-director of Mass General’s Weight Center. Brooke and Angela started knownwell together to provide the best quality healthcare for families just like theirs and their neighbors.

Weight-inclusive primary care

knownwell distinguishes itself with its weight-inclusive primary care, an approach that values your individual health journey.

The expert-led comprehensive primary care at knownwell is available both in person and virtually, ensuring accessibility and convenience for all.

The hallmark of knownwell’s primary care is the belief that you know your body better than anyone else can.
