Dr. Huizenga, an outstanding athlete himself, grew up in Rochester, New York and attended the University of Michigan followed by Harvard Medical School. He then relocated to Los Angeles where he did his residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He also did a pulmonary fellowship before entering private practice.
His personal and professional interests in fitness and medicine, along with his experience with obesity on The Biggest Loser, naturally drew him to diabetes. Together with his diverse background, he brings a fresh perspective to the treatment of the disease. He’s not bound by convention for convention sake, but rather lets data be his guide. He is by nature, a scientist.
Through his association with Vdex in his own office in Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Huizenga has helped refine the Vdex treatment protocols. The result is better care for patients and greater patient compliance with therapy.
