Doctor Mike is the only Board-Certified Interventional  Cardiologist, Professor of Culinary Medicine, and Professional Chef. He is a trailblazer in the field of culinary medicine. By combining his culinary talents with cutting-edge medical expertise and evidence-based insights he forges an approach to healthy living beyond mere nutrition or fad diets. 

He doesn’t believe in setting boundaries when it comes to food. The ideas that healthy food can’t be flavorful, that tasty food can’t be good for you, or that a one-size-fits-all, healthy diet exists are all myths. And, one by one, he is busting those myths. "Every person is unique—from their body to their preferences. You don’t need a self-described 'health expert' telling you what to eat."
Chef Dr. Mike teaches a three-part Introduction to Culinary Medicine online course at the University of Montana College of Health.
