Dr. Arthur Agatston, whose development of the “Agatston Score” is arguably the most significant preventive cardiology tool utilized by experts around the world, is also widely known as the creator and author of The South Beach Diet.
His primary mission, and that of The Agatston Center, is to deliver the best available care to patients in the most efficient and timely manner.
Preventive medicine in an accessible and timely manner is beneficial to both the patient and the physician. Private medical care, also known as concierge medicine, allows patients and physicians to spend the necessary time screening and personalizing care. Patients benefit from an opportunity to alter lifestyle habits which may pay dividends over time, and close monitoring by physicians allows for better and more attentive care to be provided.
Of course, the Agatston Center provides for patients who require care on a more acute basis to help in a health crisis as well.
In addition to Dr. Agatston, the Center’s physicians include Dr. Judi Woolger, Dr. James Trice and Dr. Cindy Shaffer.
Dr. Woolger also sees patients in our Pinecrest satellite office.
Please note that there is a range of fees for our preventive medicine program.
