About Dr. DiOrio
Chris DiOrio is the father of two happy, healthy and successful teenage girls who are the apple of his eye. He lives in Charlotte, NC, and likes to spend time on the water in nearby Lake Norman where he, his family, and friends wake-surf and enjoy outdoor pursuits of any sort. He also is often found traveling to the nearest beach for activities on the sand and in the sun.
He is primarily a family man who became interested in medicine because of his brother showing him the way as a clinical psychologist. His main motivation has always been to help people, but to help them in such a personal and individual manner as they were his own family & friends. This is his primary motivating tenet that has driven his medical and health care pursuit.
He attended The Ohio State University for undergraduate studies in biological sciences. After working at both a research and a clinical position, he chose “people” over research and then went on to medical school in California so he could help people. He graduated from Western University of Health Sciences and did his arduous internship year at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center/St Francis Hospitals Systems.
After finding his interest in critical and acute care medicine, he did his Emergency Medicine residency at the University of South Carolina. He then practiced at the Medical College of Georgia receiving Teacher & Faculty of the Year Award. He and his family moved to Charlotte, NC and his interest in Bariatric & Weight Management blossomed. The newly growing field of Obesity & Weight Management Healthcare grew and Dr. DiOrio was one of the first physicians in the area to bring this practice to the patients of North Carolina and South Carolina.
He and his partner, Kim Uyak, have become proud deliverers of health and wellness at Physician’s Plan Weight Loss & Wellness expanding from 3 offices to the current 7 locations.
Working with an exceptional team of leaders, professionals, and health care “givers,” Physician’s Plan teammates are able to deliver both weight management and aesthetic services in a unique personalized manner toward every patient’s individual needs. Dr. DiOrio is quite proud to work with a group of caring, compassionate, and skilled people who treat everyone with “family first” attention and expert care. We look forward to you & your needs to a healthier you as our primary goal & personal mission.

I started my wellness journey with Physician’s Plan May 7th 2019 in anticipation of an event coming up in the fall I hadn’t stepped on a scale in years, and it was quite a reality check to see what it read. I had a goal weight in mind and I gave myself 6 months to reach it. I never really thought of myself as out of shape, overweight or feeling bad but I was. My first real challenge was being honest with myself about where I was with my health and wellness. Sounds easy, but was probably the most difficult part of my journey. The team at Physician’s Plan was extremely positive and supportive at each of my visits, I saw them three times weekly for my B12 injections and a Friday weigh in. I looked forward to each visit. The team offered menu suggestions, how to make smart substitutions to recipes to make them healthier and helped with portion control. They encouraged keeping up with my daily journaling. It’s hard to ignore how many calories you’re ingesting when it’s right in front of you. They reviewed my journal with me monthly at my doctor’s visits and would make suggestions as how I might improve. The best part for me is and will continue to be the education the Physician’s Plan team provides. Each member of the Mount Pleasant team is a star and has been a true positive influence on me.
“In March 2015, I had been to my family doctor. I was pre-diabetic and my cholesterol was high. My doctor was clear that I needed to make some lifestyle changes. My daughter-in-law knew someone that had been to Physician’s Plan and they had lost a good bit of weight and so I said ‘that is it I am going!’ Once there, we sat down, and I talked with the doctor. We talked about what I should eat and what to avoid. She helped me start my fitness plan, and she gave me a calorie count to follow. The staff taught me how to read the label on food packages and what to stay away from. I lost 81 pounds! I have a lot more energy, I can out walk my 17 year old twins. I feel like another person. My granddaughter can put her arms around me now. It is great. I could not have done it without Physicians Plan.”–Teri
