Mark Berger, MD
After receiving his MD degree from the University of Minnesota, Dr Berger spent four years in the US Navy taking care of a battalion of Marines, including six months in Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm. Upon completing his military service, he spent the next four years studying diagnostic radiology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, followed by a fellowship in body imaging at Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina. He has spent 20 years practicing as a diagnostic radiologist in St. Paul, Minnesota, and moved to Colorado in 2018 where he continues to practice radiology.
A life-changing moment occurred for Dr Berger after years of seeing people’s health deteriorate in the images he was interpreting. He realized that conventional medicine was simply broken. Individuals were becoming sicker and sicker while trying to follow conventional medical wisdom and nutritional recommendations. After transforming his own diet and lifestyle, he became interested in discovering both conventional and alternative forms of therapy that would allow individuals the greatest opportunity to maintain their health and prevent illness. This led to completion of a two-year fellowship in Integrative Medicine through the University of Arizona in Tucson, followed by certifications from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the Kresser Institute for Functional Medicine. Dr Berger is now committed to using these techniques to enhance the health and wellness of his family, friends and patients.
Dr Berger’s CSP presentation will focus on radiology and oncology, and integrative medical perspectives on cancer.
