Great News. Jennifer Dowd, RN, MSN is joining me to serve your health needs!!
I am an Interpreventional™ Cardiolgist. What is that? I have been trained at universities in both interventional cardiology (stents) and preventive cardiology. This combination is rare and the future of my field. I just completed a year of training at the University of South Florida in the most advanced preventive approaches for the heart and am the first physician in the world to be certified in this manner. I am now on faculty of this University.
Welcome, if you are visiting this because of the February 2012 Hour Magazine, thank you. There are so many exciting ways to detect and prevent heart diseases. The article can be accessed at: www.hourdetroit.com for February 2012 by clicking here.
For over 25 years I have been studying and treating patients with known or suspected heart disease. I have seen the wonders of medical innovations such as balloon angioplasty (PTCA) for heart attacks, coronary stents, drug coated stents, statins and other cholesterol medications, blood thinners, and better ways to control high blood pressure and diabetes mellitus. However, my reading has led me to the conclusion that as great as all these breakthroughs have been, we are not keeping our eye on the target: prevention. We are eating, sitting, stressing, and yelling ourselves into an epidemic of a diseases that are completely preventable in most persons: heart and vascular blockages, obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, sexual dysfunction, and stroke. I have witnessed so much pain, suffering, loss of pleasure, loss of income, premature disability, and death that could have been largely prevented by a different lifestyle program. A few consistent choices in exercise, portion control, food selection, stress management and joyful activities and so many lives could have been improved. This website is a place to collect and share the information that is meant to direct you on a different path, a healthier, an enlightened health path, no matter what uncle Joe, brother-in-law Ted, friend Susan, spouse Carl, or boss Mary might say. Grab hold of your life, live it in a healthy and healing way. I will help! Let's Prevent Not Stent!
