About Us

Although Dr. Arthur Agatston maybe most widely known as the creator and author of The South Beach Diet, his contribution to medicine with his development of the “Agatston Score,” is arguably the most significant preventive cardiology tool utilized by experts internationally, The Agatston Score is a method of screening for coronary calcium as an indicator of atherosclerosis that is considered by most experts to be the best single predictor of a future heart attack. Although the development of the Agatston Score and The South Beach Diet are major achievements, Dr. Agatston’s primary mission has always remained the same: Deliver the best available care to his patients in the most efficient and timely manner. In 2004, he also founded the nonprofit Agatston Research Foundation for the purpose of conducting and funding original research on diet, cardiac health, and disease prevention, and more recently founded and opened the Agatston Center for Private Medicine, an internal medicine and preventive cardiology practice that offers personalized healthcare to patients through unfettered accessibility.

Aside from Dr. Agatston providing care at the Center, two other experienced colleagues provide for patients for internal medicine needs as well. Dr. Islon Woolf and Dr. Cindy Shaffer care for patients for internal medicine needs. Each patient of the Agatston Center benefits from the collaboration of all three physicians continually reviewing diagnoses, treatment protocols, cutting edge science and technology and determining best practices for the individual. This shared approach provides patients with a world class healthcare experience.
