Dr.De - CEO
Hi, I am Marcos de Andrade MD, MBA. The word is PASSION! I am PASSIONATE about prevention and performance medicine. This story started with my own personal journey when I understood that the outcomes in my life had a direct correlation with the biochemical footprint. Once I understood that if I improved my health my life could be better I then embarked in a journey to build myself and concomitantly build a system/platform to help people be the best version of themselves and thus The Biohaxs Institute was born.
I obtained a bachelors in Biology from Florida Atlantic University. I then went on to obtain my Doctorate in Medicine (M.D.) in a hybrid program between the US and Europe at the Medical University of Silesia in Poland. I then obtained an MBA from Nova International Business Administration with concentration in Finance. Lastly, I went on to complete a research fellow at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic in Weston Florida in the department of surgery and metabolism.
Although I DO NOT PRACTICE MEDICINE, I am passionate about creating a worldwide system where I can serve the most amount of people by adding VALUE to their lives. My job is to build and maintain a system comprised of beautiful health professionals that are here to serve our customers to a life away from disease and closer to the life they dream of.
