The concept for BioLounge emerged after decades of personal interest in health and many years of clinical practice working with thousands of patients. What struck me most over the years was the chasmic disconnect between a patient’s desire to optimize their health and the medical establishment's symptom management approach. If there are no symptoms, what is there to manage? At the same time, we know the best medicine is that which treats disease before symptoms manifest. Some of these tools for doing just that have existed for millennia while new science and research continue discovering even more ways for people to live longer, fuller lives free of disease. Our interest is to leverage these tools and make them widely available to those who strive for optimal health.

A lifelong interest in health and wellness prompted Jeff to receive medical training from Columbia University and later to board certification and fellowship training from the American Academy of Anti-aging Medicine. He is especially interested in therapies that promote longevity and optimize cellular performance. He is most recently coming from a five-year role as Functional Medicine director at RestorePDX (Portland’s premier regenerative medicine clinic - www.restorePDX.com). BioLounge is the latest expression of his desire to bring leading-edge science and medicine as well as innovative products and services to the public.
