BREDESEN PROTOCOL

Bredesen Protocol


Dr Daniel Cosgrove has been certified by Dr. Bredesen’s group as an official practitioner of the Bredesen Protocol. The WellMax team has several clinical personnel that are familiar with the lab tests recommended by Dr. Bredesen, as well as imaging and other tests. Dr. Cosgrove and his team have been seeing patients and doing many aspects of the Bredesen protocol (see. www.wellmax.com ) but now it’s official and we’re offering the evaluation and treatment exactly as Dr. Bredesen recommends that it be done.

Daniel Cosgrove, M.D.

In 1997 Dr. Cosgrove founded the WellMax Center for Preventive Medicine™ which is now located in Indian Wells. WellMax provides executive physicals but is best known for ongoing individualized healthcare, specializing in the early detection of disease through the creation and maintenance of a Personal Health Portfolio™.
He is now the Director of Wellness at Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, CA.

Dr. Cosgrove earned a psychobiology degree from UCLA and received an M.D. from Washington University in St. Louis. He completed Internal Medicine training at University of Utah, and became Board Certified in both Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine.
He played in early role in the formation and growth of the Institute for Functional Medicine, and he wrote a chapter for their first medical textbook. He has studied under Dr. Dale Bredesen of the Buck Institute for Aging.
Dr. Cosgrove was certified by the Federal Aviation Administration as a Senior Aviation Medical Examiner and was the Medical Director of Airstar International Air Ambulance for many years.
He held a clinical faculty appointment at Loma Linda University School of Medicine.

He is married to Dr. Doriana Cosgrove, who founded Desert Med Aesthetics, a cosmetic dermatology practice. Drs. Dan and Doriana share a clinic in Indian Wells. They have two sons and a daughter, and live in Rancho Mirage.

Dr. Dale Bredesen

MPI Cognition™ was established by Dr. Bredesen to reduce the global burden of dementia—to prevent cognitive decline in all who are at risk, and reverse the process in those who are symptomatic, especially those with early symptoms. This may be the most important goal in healthcare today: cognitive decline has become the #1 health concern of individuals as we age, and Alzheimer’s disease has become the third leading cause of death in the United States, after cardiovascular disease and cancer, destined to rob 45 million of the Americans currently living of their most fundamental reasoning capabilities if we do not do something to prevent and reverse the process.

MPI Cognition™ provides advanced medical information and algorithms that assist individuals and practitioners to prevent and reverse cognitive decline. In a disease that was deemed untreatable, we were the first to describe success (Bredesen, Aging 2014), and this has continued, using a personalized programmatic approach rather than a single ineffective pill.


Jennifer McGrath, RN

Jennifer has worked at WellMax well over ten years. She is meticulous and almost obsess­ively committed to providing the highest quality of personalized care. She manages our overall process of patient care, and leads our internal meetings. She is usually the first one here and the last to leave. She insures that all follow up care plans are completed, and makes certain that your Personal Health Portfolio™ is “buttoned up.”
Jennifer also does lots of hands-on patient care. She is licensed to perform the DEXA bone density and body composition studies. She administers cognitive tests, and performs cardiac treadmills, and many other tests.
She arrived in the desert here from Beaverton, Oregon, which she liked, but she believes is too cold and rainy there for full time living. She likes it better here (with us!).

Indian Wells,

WellMax is in the Palm Springs desert, and is close to Palm Springs International Airport with many direct flights daily. By car, Indian Wells is about a two hour drive east of Los Angeles or a two hour drive north of San Diego. The weather is sunny and pleasant here.
