Dear Reader,

The information contained within this site has been presented with careful research and professional clinician experience, and many of the articles contain references to common practices and medical research.  All patient names are fictional and no identifying patient information is being disclosed.

My credentials include being a primary care physician, board-certified lipidologist, and certified hypertension specialist. As director of Canyons Medical Center in Sandy, Utah, I see patients daily. And as Chief Medical Officer of Birmingham-based cardiodiagnostic company Atherotech Diagnostics Lab, I help educate the public and health care professionals about cardiometabolic tests and expanded? lipid panels.

Since completing medical school and my residency, I have obtained a master’s degree in psychopharmacology, and our practice was a referral clinic for the Harvard Bipolar Research Group. I lecture extensively and have published articles on topics ranging from pathophysiology and lipidology to the treatment of diabetes.

I am a member of the American Academy of Family Practice, and a board member as well as former secretary for the Pacific Lipid Association. I am a member and fellow of the National Lipid Association and a member of the American Society of Hypertension.

Cobble’s Corner was established to share patient cases from the trenches of lipidology and educate on diagnosis and treatment management of dyslipidemia, cholesterol and heart disease, among other related conditions.

I aim to maintain an open mind and an objective analysis, and I hope that my information will prove useful for physicians, clinicians and others interested in lipidology and heart disease prevention and treatment. Please use this information with care and with whatever guidance may be necessary.


Michael E. Cobble, M.D.
