Meet Mark Zhuk of The Q Institute in Downtown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mark Zhuk.

Mark, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I began my physician career as a Family Medicine Doctor in Canada. In 2001, I relocated to Miami and launched an outpatient radiology practice. We grew from 1 to 15 centers over a 14 year period. Then in 2017, I began focusing on longevity medicine, utilizing advanced imaging and biochemistry to screen for disease.

I have always loved technology and have applied it in my practice in a very unique way. Typically patients are recommended to do MRI or PET/CT screening following a diagnosis. In my practice, I have used this effectively for years for prevention. By screening healthy people, I am able to use the most advanced technology in order to catch disease early. Screening for prevention has saved many of my patient’s lives, which makes my job that much more rewarding.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My biggest obstacle has been that no one is really doing what I’m doing, meaning it’s new to people. The current healthcare system supports treating sick people. Insurance does not cover screening for prevention. Therefore my patients have to pay cash out of pocket. It’s not a cheap process which limits my patient base to those who can afford it.

We’d love to hear more about your practice.
The Q Institute is a Medical Practice of the Future. We screen for disease and cancers by utilizing comprehensive blood analysis, advanced imaging and food and dietary testing. What makes the Q different is we collect as much data as possible in order to make the best recommendations to set each patient on their specific path to wellness. I am very proud to be able to say we save lives on a daily basis and help our patients live a better quality of life.

What were you like growing up?
As a kid, I was always very inquisitive and creative. I always tried to find the best way to make any process more efficient. I was always interested in nature and science, so it’s no surprise I went to med school. I wanted to know why things were the way they were.
