ABOUT DR. BREWER
Dr. Brewer started out as an emergency doctor. After seeing too many preventable heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. While there, the postgraduate program of training (residency) in preventive medicine was launched. From there, he made a career in the practice and management of preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His last role in this area was the Medical Director of Premise, which has about 1,000 primary care / prevention clinics. He was also the Medical Director of MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. More recently, he founded PrevMed, a clinic for the prevention of heart attacks and strokes.
At PrevMed, we focus on heart attack, stroke and cognitive decline. We serve patients who have already experienced an event, as well as those who have not developed a diagnosis or event. Dr. Brewer provides services through telemedicine or in person if you are in the Lexington, KY area. We found a lot of pre-diabetes or undiagnosed insulin resistance. The treatment of unrecognized risk factors, such as pre-diabetes, reduces risk and prevents diseases.
