Locally, Dr. Gaines joins double board certified physician Christopher Senger MD, known for his skills and reputation in anti-aging and regenerative medicine, and AAG's nationwide network of anti-aging practitioners.

"Both Dr. Gaines and I share a vision of peak performance at any age. Separately our practices have been successful, but this merger presents tremendous opportunities for growth as one group," says Mark White, CEO and Founder of AAG Health, "By pooling our combined expertise and resources, we can do so much more to help our current and future patients stay young, healthy, and accomplish great things in life, than we could ever do apart."

"This merger is a natural fit, as our physicians and associates all share a similar mission. We all strive to provide the highest quality care, and the latest in clinically proven, evidence-based treatments and protocols for our patients, with a particular focus on outstanding service and individualized attention," says Dr. Gaines. "This truly is a 'win-win' for us, and for our patients. We look forward to this new venture, and continued growth here in South Florida and beyond."

With Drs. Gaines and Senger working in conjunction, AAG HealthGAINS will continue to be an area leader, offering its hormone optimization programs, specialized diagnostics, nutritional supplementation, and aesthetic treatments – now in two locations in South Florida.

In addition, with Dr. Gaines serving as Chief Medical Officer, AAG HealthGAINS will now be able to offer patients his unparalleled experience and knowledge, as well as, breakthrough techniques such as Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) -- a revolutionary new all-natural treatment that uses the body's own healing response to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote long lasting healing. PRP can be used effectively for joint pain, neck and back pain, and has more recently proven to be effective in treating reduced sexual function in both men and women.
