Physician Assistant - Certified, PhD
Michael Kehoe has worked in the arenas of sports and wellness for over 30 years in a variety of capacities. He has served as a university instructor and assistant professor in physical education, health and fitness and medicine for 22 years at several Florida universities. He completed his Ph.D. in Athletic Administration from Florida State University in 2002 and worked as the Program Coordinator of the Lifetime Activities program from 1997-2001. In 2002, he accepted a faculty position with UCF and was given the opportunity to write a new undergraduate degree program in Sports and Fitness. He returned to school and graduated from the NSU Physician Assistant Program in 2011 where he later returned and served as Clinical Coordinator and Associate Professor. From 2011-2017, he worked as a physician assistant in Functional Medicine with Dr. Kirti Kalidas at the Center for Natural and Integrative Medicine. Here, he specialized in chronic and biotoxin illnesses and developed several medical protocols still being utilized by the Center today.
Mike’s medical approach has always been to listen to the inherent wisdom of the body. He utilizes the principles of functional medicine to assist with understanding the underlying cause of a patient's illness. He believes that treating symptoms without addressing root causes is not health – it is simply symptom management. He constantly reminds patients that “You are the expert on You. You have lived in your body your whole life. Not listening to your little voice is not being true to yourself.” Additionally, Mike has training in Low Dose Antigen Therapy (LDA), Autonomic Response Testing (ART), and Laser Energetic Detox (LED). Through these modalities along with a thorough history and advanced testing, Mike strives to create a health plan for patients that is individualized to their needs and situation.
Mike’s wife Montse and daughter Sofia help bring balance and incredible love and support to his life. Leisure time includes a love for reading, travel, sports, enjoying nature and the outdoors such as a leisurely kayak adventure on any available river.
