Dr. Todd Rapport Set to Lead BodyLogicMD of Midtown Manhattan
Online PR News – 28-January-2011 – – MANHATTAN, NY - While many industries have been affected by the dwindling economy, BodyLogicMD has managed to stay on course and continue to grow at an exponential rate. The first BodyLogicMD practice opened in Chicago in 2004 and followed with four more locations along the east coast in 2005. Since then, the franchise has spread throughout the country, spanning across 23 states and Puerto Rico. And now, BodyLogicMD is looking forward to further expansion into New York and New Jersey, as well as several other states.
The newest BodyLogicMD practice, which is set to launch in early 2011, is the highly anticipated BodyLogicMD of Midtown Manhattan, led by bioidentical hormone therapy expert Todd Rappaport, M.D.
“I made the decision to partner with BodyLogicMD because I want the opportunity to spend more time with patients and less time dealing with the administrative aspect of managing a practice,” shares Dr. Rappaport. “I’m a doctor, not a businessman. My main objective as a physician is to help my patients, and with BodyLogicMD's support, that's now possible. I believe that this is how it should be for all physicians.”
In addition to BodyLogicMD of Midtown Manhattan, more practices are expected to launch in Brooklyn, Queens and Newark, as well. Other states where people with menopause, andropause or other hormonal imbalances can look forward to improved health through bioidentical hormone therapy from upcoming BodyLogicMD physicians include California, Maryland, Missouri, Oregon, Texas, Virginia and Washington.
Many people first learned about bioidentical hormones from celebrity health advocates Oprah and Suzanne Somers, but may have had trouble finding qualified physicians in their area. With the expansion of BodyLogicMD, the health benefits of balanced hormones are becoming more easily available than ever before.
“Physicians practicing preventive medicine are in high demand,” shares Patrick Savage, MBA, President of BodyLogicMD. “Women and men are starting take a higher interest in their health. The focus of modern medicine is leaning more towards disease prevention, rather than merely the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Americans are increasingly becoming more aware that optimal health isn’t just about the absence of disease, but actually feeling healthy.”
Thomas Edison once said: "The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." By this, BodyLogicMD physicians truly are the doctors of the future—doctors who focus on addressing the root causes of their patients’ medical conditions to help them regain optimal health through a customized regimen of diet, nutritional supplements, and bioidentical hormone therapy.
