Coronary diseases will be the subject of the monthly wellness lecture at the Arizona Senior Academy on Wednesday (Nov. 12), presented by Tucson cardiologist Dr. Michael Maximov. Open to the public free of charge, the talk begins at 3:30 p.m. in the Great Room of the ASA Building.
Affiliated with The Saguaro Physicians group, Maximov has practiced cardiology and internal medicine in the Tucson community for more than 30 years.
In his talk at the Arizona Senior Academy, Maximov will describe how the heart works, the implications of hypertension and various tests cardiologists arrange to diagnose coronary problems including atrial fibrillation and congestive heart failure.
He received a B.A. degree in chemistry and his M.D. degree from the University of Illinois in Chicago. He completed his internal medicine residency and two 2-year fellowships at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. The first of these was in clinical pharmacology, the study of how medications act in people, and the second in clinical cardiology. He also earned a master’s degree in Pharmacology at that university.
After moving to Tucson, Maximov maintained a cardiology practice with Dr. John F. Carroll for more than 25 years. After a brief “trial retirement,” he again opened an internal medicine practice and currently practices at the Quality of Life Medical Center. He also serves as Medical Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation at Tucson Medical Center and is medical consultant to their Senior Services Division.
He regularly gives lectures and leads seminars about various medical and social topics of interest to seniors. Additionally, he’s an avid hiker and nature lover.
