Martin Bloom, MD, FMNM, ABAARMMartin Bloom, MD, FMNM, ABAARM

A practicing Cardiologist for over 40 years and Functional Medicine Expert, Dr. Bloom became frustrated with the lack of holistic and preventative treatment options for patients while working in traditional medicine. As a result, Dr. Bloom, along with his entrepreneur son, Ross Bloom, and hormone therapy expert, Keith Foulis, founded the biostation in April 2013 with the mission of redefining healthcare at every touchpoint, and the goal of reaching patients earlier in the process so they could prevent, rather than treat, age-related issues. Through individualized diagnostic testing, a patient-centric approach, and personalized treatment plans, Dr. Bloom is able to identify the root causes of any symptoms and help patients restore balance, defy age and prevent age-related diseases. With a strong commitment to continuing education, Dr. Bloom serves as an affiliated assistant professor at the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University.
