Samuel Joseph Mann, M.D.

Samuel Mann

My specialty is Hypertension, with a focus on pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatment. I also treat hypertension based on its cause which in many cases is attributable to genetics and lifestyle (diet, weight, exercise) and in others to emotional factors. Understanding the cause enables better approach to treatment of the individual patient.

Individualization of the drug treatment of hypertension, renovascular hypertension, mind-body link, particularly as related to repressed emotions.
