Dr. Michael Banihashemi is a practicing General Cardiologist with a strong interest in preventative cardiology. He commonly treats the adverse health effects of obesity – Heart attacks, Stroke, and Peripheral arterial disease. Dr. Banihashemi believes we spend too much time in medicine focusing on the risk factors for heart disease (Diabetes, High blood pressure, and High cholesterol) instead of addressing the underlying problem – Obesity. Through The Healthy Weigh Now program, many of his patients have improved or even cured the risk factors which lead to cardiovascular disease. He is excited to share this physician-supervised, cost-effective, and successful weight loss program with others.
