Eric Roehm, M.D., F.A.C.C.

Dr. Roehm is board certified in cardiology. He went to medical school at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. He subsequently spent three years in an internal medicine residency at the University of New Mexico program in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This was followed by a fellowship in cardiac rehabilitation through Harvard Medical School at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Mass. Gen. Hospital, and Mass Rehab Hospital. He then completed a cardiology fellowship at the University of Texas at San Antonio. 

Following the completion of his training, Dr. Roehm was in practice as a cardiologist for over 20 years including care of patients presenting with hypertension, heart attack, and cardiac arrest, as well as the performance of balloon angioplasty and the placement of stents into diseased arteries of the heart.

Dr. Roehm has a long standing interest and focus on the proper interpretation of medical trials and medical studies and created this web site in 2005.  Dr. Roehm retired from private practice as of 2007 .He currently is involved in multiple nonprofit projects in the medical field. This includes the proper application of statistics in the medical literature, developing patient education materials for patients with hypertension, and serving at a medical clinic in Austin, Texas which treats the medically indigent. 

He has created several nonprofit websites:

www.HypertensionRxHaiti.com  This website includes blood pressure treatment protocols for treating the indigent displaced Haitian patient population. The protocols were developed for use by the volunteer health organizations with limited resources serving in Haiti and other third world countries for the treatment patients with elevated blood pressure when no laboratory blood work is available. Cost effective therapy with a total cost of 10˘/day for 3 drugs is described..
