Cyrus Pourzan, M.D., H.M.D.
Dr. Cyrus Pourzan is a rare find in the medical community. He is a Board Certified medical physician with a passion to find "medicine that works." [but does not seem to be passionate that the "medicine that works" was actually properly tested in clinical trials] In his practice, he combines his experience and knowledge of Western medicine with alternative therapies and natural medicines [for which no evidence of efficiency or safety exists – otherwise it would be called evidence-based medicine]. This allows him to tailor treatments to the individual. For the past 12 years of his 31 year medical career, he has been treating patients with neuro-immune disease and brings this experience to the Center for Translational Medicine.
Dr. Pourzan obtained his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati and went on to complete a residency at UCLA in Emergency Medicine. He has been Board Certified in Emergency Medicine since 1984. Aware of the limitations of Western medicine, he began to expand his education into complementary and alternative therapies [for which no evidence of efficiency or safety exists – otherwise it would be called evidence-based medicine]. He pursued this path by obtaining additional licensure in homeopathic medicine and medical acupuncture (UCLA) in 2002.
Living in the Reno-Tahoe region has provided Dr. Pourzan with the opportunity to work with some of the most eminent authorities in the fields of neuro-immune disorders, bio-identical hormone replacement, auricular acupuncture, and pain management. His current field of interest is the role of oxidative stress in illness. He finds [What? He "finds"? What a weasel word. Apparently he does not have evidence] that a balance between modern medicine and traditional therapies can successfully treat the cause of his patients' illnesses.
Dr. Pourzan's medical mission is to help people achieve the best quality of life. In his spare time, he likes to be outdoors cycling, hiking and skiing. He also enjoys music and art. His new practice location is the best of all worlds. It is an ideal environment for both his professional and personal pursuits.
The Center for Translational Medicine is proud to announce that Dr. Pourzan is now seeing patients.
