George Gillson MD PhD
Dr. Gillson obtained a PhD in Chemistry (Analytical Atomic Spectroscopy) in 1985 and worked in Research and Development for Perkin-Elmer/SCIEX before switching to a career in Medicine in 1988. He obtained an MD from the University of Calgary in 1991, and spent six years as a Family Practitioner. From July 1999 to July 2001, he was a staff physician with Jonathan Wright, MD at the Tahoma Clinic in Kent, WA, and maintained special interests in areas including steroid hormone testing and Multiple Sclerosis.
Since that time he has lectured extensively for various organizations including ACAM, the Canadian Society for Orthomolecular Medicine, Professional Compounding Centers of America as well as The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). He is also an instructor for the Metabolic Medicine Institute (MMI) formerly the Fellowship in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine (FAARFM) and for the Master’s Program in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine offered by the University of South Florida.
Dr. Gillson has experienced the challenges of clinical practice firsthand, understands the role of the laboratory in the practice of Medicine, and has solid expertise in the nutritional/integrated approach to medicine on both the practical and theoretical levels. He enjoys using his unique background and skills to help his professional colleagues solve clinical problems using laboratory testing.
He also likes to write stuff which oddly enough, some people find amusing, and for this he unashamedly blames Dave Barry of The Miami Herald, as well as all members (living and deceased) of the cast of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, but mostly John Cleese.
