Physician Testimonials

I always wondered how to define a “good doctor”. Does knowledge of the most modern advancement enough? Is a caring attitude the right quality and perfect metric? Does empathy supersede them all? You know someone when you interact with them for several years. Besides gathering knowledge, Dr. Todd Hurst and I have taken care of patients together for more than ten years. I have not only seen the qualities mentioned above but experienced them firsthand. He is up to date on preventive cardiology, and I rely on him for his state-of-the-art knowledge. There is no more sympathetic and engaged physician than Dr. Todd Hurst regarding his patients. I miss him at Mayo, but he is helping many outside of the confines of Mayo with several innovative and novel ways of enhancing the quality of life and prolonging it to the fullest extent. I would be glad to seek care from Dr. Todd Hurst any day.

I’ve had the privilege of working with Dr. Hurst for a number or years, and hold him in the highest regard as a leading preventative cardiologist and physician-scientist.  Dr. Hurst combines key tenets of evidence-based medical practice with practical advice and insights gained from years of experience to improve the lives of his patients, and is now applying this same expertise to counseling his clients with HealthspanMD. Beyond Dr. Hurst’s impeccable clinical acumen and academic achievements, he is quite simply a wonderful person….not just a trusted colleague, but also the preventive cardiologist I have referred to care for members of my own family and friends.
