About the author

Dr. Roger Garcia believes that mankind was born to enjoy the blessings of a long life and good health. The father of twin daughters, aged six, he holds both medical and law degrees and lives his beliefs in a vigorous lifestyle, which includes adventures such as running with the bulls in Spain.

He received his medical degree in 1983 from the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine, a discipline emphasizing the whole person and the connection between the musculoskeletal system and disease. Inspired by this training, he has devoted his practice to preventive medicine. His interest in age-related health issues led to board certification from the American of Academy of Anti Aging Medicine. In addition, he holds a Fellowship in Functional and Regenerative Medicine through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. He also has certifications in Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine, and as an Independent Medical Examiner.

Dr. Garcia believes the solution to most age-related health problems is a healthy lifestyle of good nutrition, fitness, stress reduction and hormonal balance using bioidentical hormone therapy. In his medical practice, he knows first-hand the satisfying benefits. In contrast, as director of the Bellevue Hospital's emergency department (Ohio), where he also serves as assistant professor of emergency medicine for his alma mater, he often sees the despair of a life cut short because it was not lived in good health. He is president of Great Lakes Emergency Physicians, Inc., an urgent care development company, and holds a legal degree from Capital University Law School, class of 1996 and worked as an of-counsel at a prominent Columbus, Ohio law firm. He is a Fellow of the American College of Legal Medicine and the American College of Osteopathic Emergency Physicians. His book, Aged to Perfection: Anti-aging, Wellness & Weight Loss with Natural Bioidentical Hormones (2010), is a testament to his passion in helping people succeed in achieving superior health and longevity.
