About Us

Dr. Chaconas has treated lipid disorders for over 25 years and has dedicated himself to providing his patients with the latest in cardiovascular risk assessments and preventive therapies.  His passion in preventing heart attacks and strokes led him to become board certified in Clinical Lipidology in 2009.  In 2010, he developed the Center for Advance Lipid Management.  

What is a lipidologist?

Clinical lipidology is a specialized medical discipline. Clinical lipidologists examine and treat disorders of lipid metabolism, which refers to the study of fatty substances within the blood. It is becoming increasingly common to recognize lipid abnormalities at the base of many health problems. With a continuous increase arising in lipid problems due to the growing public health risk in a number of areas, lipidologists focus on preventing cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, and strokes. Clinical lipidologists pursue a continuing education and are required to pass a rigorous exam administered by the American Board of Clinical Lipidology. Further, they are trained in cholesterol management, and cardiovascular risk assessment and intervention.
