John Bordiuk, M.D.- Board Certified Internist and Medical Director
In Dr. John Bordiuk’s own words: “I had a great undergraduate education at the University of California Santa Cruz (Go Slugs!) and a phenomenal experience in medical school at Columbia University. But those formal educational experiences are only part of what any physician should bring to the patient/ physician relationship.
These days, my doctoring is a blend of the wisdom that comes from having a great formal education, 30 years of patient experience, along with the benefit of having a marriage, children, living in my own body, living with my own injuries, and running many, many miles.”
Known for his thorough, thoughtful and compassionate style, John (what he asks patients to call him) blends functional medicine with traditional medicine and other healing modalities to address the individual needs of his patients.
