Dr. Bradley Bale and Dr. Amy Doneen are international leaders in the prevention of heart attacks, strokes, type 2 diabetes, and chronic disease such as dementia and heart failure. They co‑founded the BaleDoneen Method in 1999, which has been shown in peer‑reviewed studies to effectively identify, stabilize, and reverse arterial disease.
Drs. Bale and Doneen have been called "disease detectives" because their method uses leading‑edge laboratory and imaging tests to check for hidden signs of arterial disease and inflammation. Using a genetic, precision‑based approach, the BaleDoneen Method treats each patient as a unique and special individual.
Both share academic appointments at Texas Tech Health Sciences, University of Kentucky of College of Dentistry, and Washington State University College of Medicine. Dr. Doneen owns The Heart Attack & Stroke Prevention Center in Spokane, Washington, an international center for patient treatment and provider training through the BaleDoneen Academy.
