I maintain board certifications in internal medicine and cardiology, with added qualifications in clinical lipidology, and echocardiography. As both a primary care physician and specialist, I welcome patients with complicated internal medicine problems that have affected important organs including the heart and kidneys. I am knowledgeable about the roles of diet and exercise in health and disease and commonly provide guidance concerning dietary supplements and treatments for obesity. I have an intimate practice style with frequent patient contact and 24 X 7 access for questions and help with medical problems. My practice involves both teaching and research, therefore, my patients are among the first to have new tests and treatments for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart and kidney disease. As the Chief Academic and Scientific Officer of the St. John Providence Health System, I oversee physician training, corporate medical staff services, and research. I am internationally recognized as an authority in my field and frequently lecture in internal medicine, nephrology, and cardiology. In addition, I have published over 800 scientific communications in the form of abstracts, manuscripts, letters, and texts. I also serve as the current Chair of the National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Early Evaluation Program, the largest community screening effort for chronic diseases in America. Importantly, I practice what I preach in terms of diet, exercise, and lifestyle. I am a dedicated athlete and have completed a marathon in all 50 states, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Additionally, I have participated in over 100 running/multisport events sanctioned by the USA Track and Field and Triathlon associations.
