Murray Susser, MD

Some people would describe Murray “Buz” Susser ’66 as one of “those California way-out doctors,” implying a physician who doles out a healthy dose of philosophy or mysticism along with his ministrations. It’s true that Susser treats some of his patients with nutritional approaches, consults a chiropractor for his own bad back, and personally cares for his share of the stars.

While Susser’s practice is clearly a non run-of-the-mill, neither is it particularly “far-out.” Rather, the Pitt-trained physician combines a firm foundation of traditional family practice (in which he is board certified) with those aspects of nutritional medicine that seem to be valid. In his comfortable, slightly cluttered office, a book on nutrition sits alongside Goodman and Gilman’s and the 1991 edition of the PDR. Susser himself still sounds astonished as he recounts the winding path by which his practice has developed. READ COMPLETE BIO

Judith Volpe, MD
I am experienced in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for both men and women, live cell therapy, neuropeptide therapy, TA-65 and other age management therapies. I also have great experience with autoimmune disorders, liver disease, and cancer. I have a very successful treatment for autoimmune disease from Europe which is only available to a few physicians in the US. Also, there is almost no one in Manhattan offering live cell therapy, which is embryonic animal cell therapy, a sort of stem cell therapy from animals. However, be aware that I do not bill insurance and most alternative medicine therapies, except male and female hormones, are not covered. Hormone preparations from compounding pharmacies are rarely covered by insurance. READ COMPLETE BIO
