What Is The Agatston Center?

The primary mission of The Agatston Center is to deliver the best available care to patients in the most efficient and timely manner. 

We focus on delivering preventive medicine in an accessible and timely manner because it is beneficial to both the patient and the physician.  

Our concierge medicine practice allows patients and physicians to spend the necessary time personalizing care. Patients benefit from an opportunity to alter lifestyle habits, which may pay dividends over time…plus close monitoring by physicians allows for better and more attentive care to be provided. 

The Agatston Center is under the leadership of preventive cardiologist Dr. Arthur Agatston, whose development of the “Agatston Score” is arguably the most significant preventive cardiology tool utilized by experts around the world. He is also widely known as the creator and author of The South Beach Diet.

The Agatston Center transformed what I think of healthcare in the US. The level of expertise, attention to detail and customer service puts them in a league of their own.

I feel safe and secure knowing that my family has access to the level of care at the Agatston Center. I initially went due to a cancer scare and now realize that I should have joined a long time ago.

The Importance of Prevention:

The Keto Friendly South Beach Diet and COVID-19

1. The leading risk factors for susceptibility to and prognosis with the coronavirus are obesity, age, diabetes and high blood pressure.

2. All of these risk factors turn out to be markers for abnormal secretion of insulin associated with a condition called “insulin resistance.”

3. Insulin resistance in the U.S. and around the world is the most important cause of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and it increases with age.

4. There are individuals in their 70s and 80s with obesity but if they are metabolically well (that is they have normal insulin secretion) they will be at much lower risk of coronavirus than thinner individuals of the same age who have abnormal insulin secretion.

5. If you have abnormal insulin secretion, you can normalize it in weeks with the right diet and lifestyle program.
