My one-hour consultation was via Zoom. My intention was to get guidance on developing a plan to address all my risk factors for a cardiac event, to establish just how worried I should be about my heart, and to rekindle motivation to implement the lifestyle changes necessary to live longer. I’d rather die in a natural disaster outside of my control than to succumb to heart disease that I could have done something about. I provided some test data, Dr. Kahn assessed the pieces, put the picture in perspective, offered recommendations and a timeline for next steps. Even though the lifestyle changes necessary to achieve the best outcomes are dependent entirely on my own commitment and follow through, I’m buoyed by having the expert guide to help me muddle through the process of achieving heart health to the extent possible.I’m dismayed by how much we don’t know, dismayed even more by my own lethargy in not acting on what I know, but am reassured that Dr. Kahn is the smartest cardiologist on the planet. He’s on top of the literature, not the case with most conventional cardiologists, he thinks outside the box and integrates his knowledge of cardiology with up-to-date research on nutrition, supplementation, cutting-edge technology, and state-of-the-art testing. He communicates easily, with humor and kindness.
Dealing with his staff via telephone and e-mail is an easy process. Lisa is efficient and focused. I recommend the Kahn Center for Cardiac Longevity to anyone fortunate enough for hands-on, in-person evaluation and treatment. For those of us geographically challenged, Zoom appointments work. I only wish I still lived in Chicago and could make the hop, skip, and jump to Michigan. I also wish I hadn’t waited until 76. If your heart needs help, don’t hesitate. Who knows what wonders the extra years might hold.
