Richard Flanigan, M.D.

Dr. Flanigan is a preventative cardiologist who attended Jefferson Medical College and served two years in the Navy as a physician to the midshipman at the Naval Academy. He had a hospital cardiology practice at St. Joseph and Presbyterian St. Luke’s hospitals until he joined HealthMark in 2012. He says that has been the best decision he has ever made.

He’s long served as a leader in the medical community including a past post as the Director of the Heart and Health Prevention Center and serving as Clinical Professor and Adjunct Professor for the University of Colorado and University of Denver respectively.

In addition to his medical pursuits, Dr. Flanigan has had a long career in the sport of rowing and was on the US national team competing in the World Championships, Pan-American games, and pre-Olympic Games. Currently, he’s a US Master’s Champion with two gold medals and one silver. All in all, he has won 46 World Masters Championships and was inducted into the Hall-of-Fame for rowing.

Dr. Flanigan is immensely proud of his physician daughter, Kate, who co-authored Longevity Made Simple with him. It’s a Denver bestseller (2007), which is a testament to his avid interest in preventive cardiology.
