Dr. Charles Guglin, MD - FACS
State of Connecticut- 26375
Dr. Charles Guglin, MD - FACS was born and raised in Rochester, NY. After receiving a BS from SUNY at Albany, NY he went on to medical school at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He underwent General Surgery Residency training, initially at New Britain General Hospital in New Britain, CT, then finished a Trauma Fellowship and wrapped up his General Surgery training at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, CT.
He has been a practicing acute care General Surgeon in Milford, CT for 28 years. Toward the end of this tenure he became somewhat dissatisfied with medicine the way it is typically practiced in this country. It has become the norm, in part because of the undue influence of the insurance and pharmaceutical industries, to allow patients to become chronically unhealthy, mostly as a result of lifestyle issues, then to treat their symptoms with pharmaceuticals or invasive surgery. At that point he became impassioned about the newer concept and the field of Preventative/Functional medicine.
Practitioners in this field are dedicated to finding the root cause of chronic illnesses through the use of advanced diagnostics, including extensive blood studies, genomics, body composition analysis, VO2 Max studies and cognitive testing. Clients then sit down with their physician and formulate a comprehensive plan including nutritional counseling, age and fitness level appropriate physical training, nutraceuticals, hormone optimization, and stress reduction strategies.
Dr. Guglin feels that this is the best approach to achieving wellness, no matter what age or state of health you are in presently. He understands that, only through hard work and dedication to achieving your personal health goals along with proper education and medical assistance, you can dramatically improve your health and quality of life.
