body naturally produces) the outcome is truly amazing.

as heart disease & diabetes, the increase of lean muscle
mass while experiencing a decrease in body fat, an increased

Mark Magazine caught up with
Dr. Ferdinand of Genenis Health Institute
to better understand his practice:
sets Dr. Ferdinand Cabrera of Genesis Health Institute apart
from other doctors is that he really listens to his
patients. He encourages consultations where he can really
communicate with his patients and find out the basis of
their ailments. Dr. Cabrera has them fill out a 16-page
questionnaire so that he can get to the root of the problem.
“I speak to them for an hour and
then I connect the dots,” the doctor says.
Genesis Health Institute
specializes in anti-aging techniques and general wellbeing
by using a multi-faceted approach to enhance the quality of
your life during the aging process.
Dr. Cabrera, the internist who runs
Genesis with his partner and Office Administrator/Patient
Coordinator Dimitri Bakoulis, says their most popular
service is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Many patients
get the testosterone treatment because it transforms body
fat, sharpens thinking and makes a big change in libido. In
fact, Dr. Cabrera is the only doctor in Fort Lauderdale who
offers Pellet Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Dr. Cabrera tests blood to find out
about food allergies in his patients. When found, they do an
elimination diet to see how it affects the patient. Usually,
they end up losing weight.
The doctor focuses on hormone
replacement therapy, proper nutrition, regular exercise, and
adequate rest and recovery. These medical treatments are
available for both men and women.
Other services offered include
physician guided weight management, inflammation
elimination, IV (intravenous) therapy, chelation and
detoxification therapies, customized nutraceutical programs
and facial aesthetics.
For those who worry about cost (and
who doesn’t?), they offer a special service called Club
Genesis. It’s an easy and affordable way to enjoy the
services that keep you looking and feeling young, without
having an effect on your wallet. There are many packages
available for low monthly payments that can be billed to
your credit card. These packages cost between $175 and $295
“We work with pricing,” Dimitri
Bakoulis says. “No patient is turned away.”
Another way that Genesis makes
their services convenient for their patients is to offer
