Dr. Chris Dan - Peak Human Podcast


Listen on


In this episode, I sat down with Dr. Chris Dan and Dr. Gary Shlifer to talk about the shortcomings of the medical system and current public health guidelines. Both of them have experienced frustration with the modern medical system, especially as it relates to the pandemic and the prevention of chronic disease.

We discuss the chaotic and confusing public health guidelines over the past 2 years as well as the importance of metabolic health on our immune health. Dr. Chris Dan exposes some of the biggest problems with the healthcare system and explains why he left the hospital.

Dr. Chris Dan is currently a family medicine board certified physician who worked as a full time Hospitalist in Los Angeles County for the past four years. He completed his undergraduate degree at UCI and studied medicine at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona. During his time as an inpatient physician, he saw the shortcomings of the current medical system in prevention of chronic disease and will be moving on to work outpatient with a focus on returning people to metabolic health.

Dr. Gary Shlifer is a board-certified internal medicine physician specializing in preventative care, nutrition/metabolism and anti-aging medicine. Dr. Gary brings his robust experienced with hospital inpatient medicine to his outpatient primary care practice in order to help prevent and cure disease in his patients. He is the founder of Evolve Healthcare in Los Angeles, a multi-specialty integrative medicine clinic focused on disease prevention and lifestyle optimization. Through his companies and community outreach, he works to promote his message of healthy living, eating and lifestyle practices while developing into a leader in his community.
