Monti, MD, MBA, Senior Vice President and the Ellen and Ron Caplan Professor and Director of the Marcus Institute of Integrative Health.

With Dr. Bazzan on board, our patients will have access to his breadth of integrative medicine skills, including targeted nutrient therapies, bioidentical hormone replacement, and more."

The Marcus Institute also offers an array of therapies and technologies including the region’s only PET-MRI, integrative heart health, micronutrient infusions and signature programs like Executive Brain Health and Executive Great Life.
