Dr. Stuart Markovitz, M.D. – Medical Director, CEO
Stuart Markovitz earned his BA degree from Washington and Jefferson College and graduated from West Virginia University School of Medicine in 1978. He completed his specialty training in Internal Medicine at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco and then practiced Internal Medicine in the Silicon Valley for 35 years.
He was a founder of the Shoreline Medical Group and the Camino Medical Group which eventually merged with the world renowned Palo Alto Medical Group. He served on the Board of Directors of Camino Healthcare and he worked for the San Francisco 49ers as stadium physician of Candlestick Park for 35 years as well as being voted one of the top doctors of Silicon Valley. He was also an early developer in the electronic medical record (EMR) industry. He became increasingly frustrated and unhappy with the corporate takeover of medicine in which physicians have lost their autonomy and have become employees of large medical groups and caught in the middle of an economic struggle with hospitals. government, insurers and Big Pharma.
Practicing medicine wasn’t enjoyable anymore, so he retired early from corporate run medicine but continued to study new materials in the medical field. He eventually focused on sexual medicine and became fascinated with the physiology of erectile function/dysfunction and technological advances being made but unknown to most physicians. He decided to reinvent himself and return to his calling as a practicing physician sharing his knowledge, expertise and skill with patients but this time free from negative external commercial forces.
He took over the Charleston Men’s Clinic in 2016 and is dedicated to delivering high quality, personalized medical education and care to the community.
