I've already recommended Dr. Backs to people for his focus on prevention and staying current with the latest research. As we get older having a physician that pursues a personalized approach and is open to observations by the patient, I believe, is key to effective implementation of science based medicine. Complex disease requires multifaceted cures and preventions, not the one pill, one cure payday research model. It requires a synthesis of knowledge and that is Doctor Backs.

Dr. Backs and his staff were wonderful. Making an appointment for the InBody test was very easy and I didn't have to wait when I got there. The test took just 5 minutes and Dr. Backs took a lot of time with me explaining the test results and creating a program for me to get healthier. I would recommend Dr. Backs to everyone with questions about their heart and internal health. -Krista H.

Very pleased with Dr. Backs. He spends all the time necessary to discuss laboratory results and treatment options with patients in his heart attack and stroke prevention practice.
