Dr. David Minkoff (http://www.drminkoff.com) graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then worked as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron (a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease), co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine until 1995. At that time, his wife became sick with an illness no physician could diagnose. Not accepting an uncertain prognosis, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her that led him out of emergency medicine into alternative medicine to find the answers. As a result of his advanced studies, his wife is now in good health and enjoying racing in triathlons.
