Vivian A. Kominos, MD, FACC is board certified in integrative medicine and cardiology. She received her medical degree from St. Louis University School of Medicine and returned to her home state of New Jersey to complete her internal medicine residency and cardiovascular fellowship at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. She founded her practice in 1989 which blossomed, with the help of her partners, into a full service consultative and interventional practice.
After 15 years of treating heart disease as an invasive cardiologist, Dr. Kominos looked to expand her knowledge and skills. Inspired by patients and family, she attended a nutrition conference where she met Dr. Andrew Weil, founder of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine (AzCIM). Excited by what she learned, she began focusing on integrative medicine and completed the AzCIM 2 year fellowship program.
In 2012 she joined the Continuum Center for Health and Healing in NYC, where she established an integrative cardiology program. During her three years at the Center she was fortunate to have worked with luminaries in the field of integrative medicine: nutritionists, acupuncturists, physicians, and specialists in physical therapy, chiropractic and homeopathy. Now, Dr. Kominos brings her expansive knowledge and skills back to her home state of New Jersey at Meridian’s Integrative Health and Medicine department.
Dr. Kominos has remained at AzCIM as a contributing faculty member where she teaches and is a content contributor. She promotes the principles of Integrative Medicine through community programs, professional lectures, clinical consultations and serves as Vice-Chair on the American Board of Integrative Medicine.
