Dr. Kenneth C. Andronico, DO, FICS, FAARM – Osteopathic Physician in Wesley Chapel, FL
Meet Dr. Kenneth C. Andronico. To schedule an appointment, please give us a call.
Dr. Kenneth C. Andronico is an Osteopathic Physician and specialist in Ophthalmology and Anti Aging along with an extensive background of decades of intensive training and board certification in Anti-Aging, Functional, and Integrative Medicine.
Dr. Andronico’s philosophy incorporates a “whole body” approach to anti-aging therapies with a special emphasis on one-on-one personalized patient care that includes taking time to get to know his patients, listening and educating his patients and delving deep into their concerns, treating them like a member of his own family.
Dr. Andronico strongly believes that a profound shift has occurred in the medical establishment’s views on aging and age-related diseases. Ninety percent of the illnesses that adults experience are due to the degeneration that occurs with age. Common degenerative diseases include high blood pressure, stroke, adult-onset diabetes, several types of cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, glaucoma, autoimmune disease, osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis. Many of these conditions can be prevented, slowed, or even cured with early diagnosis and appropriate intervention.
The basis of anti-aging medicine is the application of scientifically advanced medical technologies for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of age-related disease. Through precise, customized care, a healthy lifespan may be prolonged. Anti-aging medicine abides by responsible, sound principles and high level of care consistent with those of other preventive specialties.
Dr. Andronico’s addition of anti-aging and integrative medicine to his practice occurred in 2005. In the past decade, he has remained at the forefront of this field, utilizing effective evidence-based anti-aging, functional, and preventive therapies. With each case, he draws upon his decades of clinical and medical expertise in the areas of osteopathy, optometry, and ophthalmology.
After receiving his Doctor of Optometry degree from Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 1979, Dr. Andronico completed a residency in Optometric Medicine at the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee.
