Medical Director, Division of Hormone Restoration
Associate Medical Director, Integrative Medicine
Dr. John Monaco has always had an interest in Alternatives to Traditional Medicine. Since the beginning of his OB/GYN practice, he has stressed to patients the importance of lifestyle, diet and alternative treatments. He believed then that prevention was the key to healthy aging. However, traditional therapies seemed to only treat the symptoms and not address the root causes of disease. It did very little to identify risks and recommend preventative therapies.
He was finally able to pursue additional training in this field through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and the Institute for Functional Medicine completing their Fellowship training and Board Certification. He believes that Traditional Allopathic Medicine is lacking in many areas of patient care, disease prevention and treatment. The Monaco Center is focused on this new medical field the identification and prevention of the common diseases of aging or to identify and prevent the common diseases of aging.
Patients are becoming wary of contemporary medical therapies, especially hormone replacement and are seeking out practitioners who are willing and trained to offer them evidence based alternatives. He is one of a very small but growing number of such practitioners.
