Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
Cenegenics Puerto Rico opens its doors this month to the Caribbean, Central and South America, offering Latin America a renowned “next generation” medical approach for optimized health and a new definition of aging, announced Cenegenics® Medical Institute, the global leader in age management medicine. Located in San Juan, the new center is Cenegenics’ first practice outside the contiguous U.S. Physician partner Dr. Claudia Villate—board-certified in internal medicine and an eight-year Cenegenics physician affiliate—oversees Cenegenics Puerto Rico.
Reportedly, 13 out of every 100 Puerto Ricans are diabetic. But things are gradually changing. Puerto Ricans are working hard to shed their stereotypical high incidence of diabetes, heart disease and obesity by embracing a healthier lifestyle of fitness and better nutrition. And that’s where Cenegenics enters the picture. Recognized as the leading authority in age management medicine, Cenegenics believes its proactive healthy aging program—grounded in solid science with superior patient care, evidence-based protocols and a renewed physician-patient relationship—can help them turn the tide and take control of their future health.
“As a physician, working with Cenegenics and launching Cenegenics Puerto Rico are like seeing my dream come. Practicing age management medicine is what physicians envision healthcare should look like. At Cenegenics Puerto Rico, we are proud to offer so many advanced medical programs to help patients enter a new level of preventive health, such as our Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention program, Cardiac Stem Cell Therapy program, Telomere program and Optimized Health corporate wellness program,” Villate said.
Since opening her Cenegenics physician affiliate practice back in 2004, Villate has grown a large patient base from not only Puerto Rico patients, but also Central and South America as well as the States. The fact that her practice is built on 90% referrals and over 12% of her patients in Puerto Rico are physicians is a testament to her uncompromising dedication to medical excellence and the Cenegenics program—a commitment bore out of her own transformational health story as a Cenegenics patient.
“When I went to Cenegenics as a patient in 2004, I literally experienced a 180-degree change in my health. The aftermath of gestational diabetes—battling on again/off again weight, stubborn body fat and plummeting energy levels—left me frustrated with no satisfying solutions from my conventional medicine colleagues. The Cenegenics approach inspired me, as a patient and a physician. Within four months, I had reached my initial health goals, dropped my body fat from 37% to 18% and corrected the metabolic abnormalities on my labs. I knew then that practicing age management medicine was exactly what I wanted to do,” Villate said.
Cenegenics Puerto Rico overlooks the ocean, reflecting an organic décor. The center offers a full-time nutrition/exercise counselor, VIP room, physician offices and diagnostic rooms, designated for Cenegenics’ “gold standard” exercise assessments to test five major fitness components—including the sophisticated VO2 max to evaluate oxygen consumption/cardio pulmonary efficiency.
Cenegenics Puerto Rico is located at 954 Ponce de León Ave., Miramar Plaza, Suite 701 in San Juan. You may reach the center by calling 787.722.6030.
