Dr. Rubin Maidan was born in Waterloo, Iowa. He attended the University of Iowa, where he completed a double major in General Science and Psychology in three years, graduating with honors and high distinction, attended the University of Iowa Medical School and earned the Alpha Omega Alpha Award given to the top 5% of medical students. After a one-year internship at the University of New Mexico, he returned to the University of Iowa for his Internal Medicine residency. Then, at the University of Minnesota, he completed his Cardiology Fellowship, published original research on magnetic resonance, performed clinical research, and won the Ciba-Geigy Fellowship Award. He was among the first cardiologists to train in coronary angioplasty in 1984 and brought that skill to his group in 1985, where he and Eastside Cardiology pioneered the use of that modality in acute heart attacks, (which is now the treatment of choice to save lives in that setting). Dr. Maidan was former president of the American Heart Association, Lake Washington Division, was Director of Cardiology at Evergreen Hospital for 16 years, has volunteered at Harborview Medical Center, taught medical students and held an appointment as Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Washington Medical Center. He has been working with the Washington Department of Health to improve access to cardiovascular care in our state.
Dr. Maidan has also been drawn into the world of integrative medicine. He created, edited and published the Integrative Medicine Newsletter, a periodical for physicians on alternative medicine. He has taught courses in Spirituality and Medicine, has worked with Bastyr University, and collaborates with naturopaths and other alternative providers on a model of integrated cardiovascular care utilizing the best of both medical worlds to serve his patients.
"I believe the optimal care of the heart requires not only superior medical knowledge, but an integration of body, mind, and spirit. I believe in treating the person first, and the disease second. I believe that life is sacred and people deserve to be treated with compassion and dignity. I see my role as a healer to draw on all modalities, conventional and alternative, and that can achieve the deepest level of healing attainable."
