Dr Christian Assad is an interventional cardiologist with a deep interest in the therapeutic applications of low-carb, high-healthy-fat (LCHF), ketogenic and intermittent fasting lifestyles. After his last year of training at (VIVA Endovascular Fellowship at The Fogarty Institute for Innovation in California), he moved to McAllen, the third most obese city in the United States. Not surprisingly, McAllen has an overwhelming prevalence of diabetes, metabolic syndrome and their complications. After treating several individuals presenting with myocardial infarctions, critical limb ischemia, and other vascular complications in their early 30s, decided to tackle the disease in a far more impactful way. He, therefore, started The Cardio-Metabolic Clinic at RGV Cardiology that focuses on prevention of cardiovascular pathology.
