"Dr Paz" has been serving the Detroit Metropolitan area for over 38 years. He served as the Ambulatory Medical Director for Bon Secours Cottage Health Systems for over ten years, supervising a team of 38 primary care doctors. He was previously part of the full-time teaching faculty at Bon Secours Hospital and has received 'Teacher of the Year' honors numerous times. The focus of his private practice has been the care of women and children and through his career he has delivered over 1000 babies!

In 2001, Detroit Hour Magazine surveyed 500 Detroit Area Family Physicians. In this survey, Dr Paz was named 'Top Doc'. This was the only time that Hour Magazine surveyed only Family Physicians, making Dr Paz truly the 'Best of the Best' among his peers.

Approximately 20 years ago, he developed a strong interest in nutritional and complimentary medicine and is now able to provide his patients with 'the best of both worlds', incorporating cutting edge nutritional science with alternative approaches that can be used to significantly improve the results of conventional medical practice.

Through the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Restorative Medicine as well as The Institute for Functional Medicine, Dr. Paz has developed significant expertise in hormone restorative and integrative therapy for a wide variety of medical conditions. He has previously served as a Board Examiner for the Academy.

In 2006, Dr. Paz returned to full-time medical practice and formed the St. John Center for Wellness and Family Medicine. He officially retired from this practice in December 2021.
