She is committed to the prevention of chronic disease via the reduction of inflammation associated with aging. She is currently completing a fellowship at the American Academy of Anti-aging Medicine, studying regenerative, preventive, and holistic medicine, as well as the benefits of herbs and supplements to slow down the aging process.

Clinic director & founder
Michael’s facility has been in practice for six years, helping patients attain optimal health without using the conventional form of medicine. From his awful erectile dysfunction experience, he has ever since deep-dived into the research behind hormone optimization therapy, peptides, and functional medicine clinical research. He found a whole other natural realm of remedies that could restore youth, health, and vitality for patients like himself. He does not just manage symptoms using natural products but apply the principles of “molecular makeup modifications and biochemistry solutions at its finest.” In other words, he focuses on finding and correcting the underlying root causes of imbalances within the human system. If there is a problem downstream, he looks upstream to see the cause and effect of the problem. Managing the practice and working with patients, his team of doctors creates an algorithm to demonstrate the underlying health issue and where it all commenced. Michael always preaches to patients, “The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” For the last five years, he has attended with his team every conference, webinar, or workshop he can get his hands on in preventive medicine solutions. He and his team are continuously upgrading their protocols with advanced education in personalized hormone therapies, peptides, IV infusions, supplements, and dietary lifestyle modification habits.

Patient Care Coordinator – Wellness & BHRT Specialist
Daniel has been actively involved in the bio-identical hormone replacement therapy field for over eight years now and is extremely passionate about health, nutrition, and wellness. He was instantly drawn to functional medicine and the benefits provided by this unique medical approach, where everything administered is natural and recognizable by our bodies to respond at its optimal best. Today, Daniel works with patients, helping them optimize their weight goals, exercise routines, mental well-being, and improve their sexual performance. He is continuously reminded and driven by the life-changing results and personal stories of his patients. Daniel is an attendee and participant of anti-aging conferences like the “A4M”, and keeps his knowledge and understanding of functional medicine up to current date. He has witnessed for himself and patients what the slightest hormonal imbalance can do to a person and believes that no one whether man or female, should have to endure these age-related conditions.

Patient Care Coordinator – Wellness & BHRT Specialist
Moises is a retired lieutenant police officer who does this profession out of sheer pleasure. He has been a hormone replacement therapy patient for over 10 years and in the process of retirement, decided he would enjoy doing this for fun and to help others. He preaches that hormone replacement therapy should not be considered without a complete understanding of how all the body’s hormones interact with each other. If one is altered or deficient, it will affect the actions of all of the other hormones in your body. The hormonal response of an individual is as unique as its fingerprints. How one responds to hormone replacement therapy is related to genetic profile, the condition of your health, stress level, nutritional supplementation, detoxification, and what you eat. All the hormones in the body are designed to work together. However, one size does not fit all, and that is why it is imperative that we customize each treatment for each patient. At our Hormone Replacement Therapy clinic in Miami, each patient receives comprehensive hormonal blood work with the right doctor to evaluate and prescribe. In addition, they will receive the best wellness coordinator possible to convey to patients “in layman’s terms” everything they need to understand and know about their biochemistry. It takes serious experience and knowledge to get the job done, and I am more than confident that from my experience, and with the knowledge of the Medical Health Institute, any patient cared for under my watch, is in the best hands they could possibly be.
