The BaleDoneen Method® Practice Management

“Bradley Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, ARNP are on the leading edge of prevention of heart attacks. I love the fact that they never stop studying, learning and conducting the research to stop the number one killer of Americans—cardiovascular disease (CVD). Brad and Amy have a true passion for saving lives—and hearts. I am a firm and vociferous believer in their prevention plan…following it can help you avoid a heart attack.”

A Letter from Bradley Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, DNP, ARNP

New cars come with a warranty. Who would buy them otherwise? We think medical providers should also guarantee that their care is effective.

Since 2008, we have offered all patients treated at our clinics—the Heart Attack & Stroke Prevention Center in Spokane, Washington and the Heart Attack, Stroke and Diabetes Center at the Grace Clinic in Lubbock, Texas—a written guarantee stating that if they suffer a heart attack or stroke while under our care, we will refund 100% of the fees paid during the year.* To date, we’ve only had to give one refund.

How do we achieve these results when most of our patients have major risk factors for cardiovascular events, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, current or past smoking, obesity (including patients weighing up to 400 pounds), or a family history of cardiovascular disease (CVD)?

The BaleDoneen Method: Using Leading-Edge Science to Detect “Hidden” Cardiovascular Risk

The wonderful news is that heart attacks and strokes are preventable. However, it often takes more than medicine’s standard of care.

Two recent peer-reviewed studies demonstrated that our comprehensive, personalized prevention plan, the BaleDoneen Method, successfully halted or even reversed CVD in a cohort of our patients, helping them avoid heart attacks and strokes, even though some of them have already suffered one or more of these events, putting them at particularly high risk for recurrence.

Our patented method uses advanced CVD detection techniques to accurately identify “hidden” for heart attacks and strokes in seemingly “healthy” patients, such as:

  • Genetic testing
  • State-of-the-art ultrasound measurements of major arteries
  • High-tech heart scans
  • A “fire panel” of blood and urine tests for arterial inflammation
  • A comprehensive, personalized assessment of each patient to check for red flags for cardiovascular risk and early signs of CVD, which typically develops silently over many years until it becomes severe enough to trigger a heart attack or stroke.

Optimal Care to Save Lives, Hearts and Brains

As described more fully in our book, Beat the Heart Attack Gene: The Revolutionary Plan to Prevent Heart Disease, Stroke and Diabetes, and our BaleDoneen Method 2-Day Preceptorship Course for clinicians, which is accredited by the American Academy of Family Physicians for up to 16.5 Prescribed Credits, our approach to CVD prevention and treatment draws on leading-edge science published in peer-reviewed journals. It is designed to keep the more than 60,000 miles of blood vessels in your body healthy.

To help clinicians integrate the BaleDoneen Method into their medical or dental practices, we also offer a new Online Genetics CME Course and Monthly Scientific Update Webinars for graduates of our Preceptorship Course. This website includes a Provider Directory of clinicians who have completed our Preceptorship Course, and access to our Speakers Bureau.

Keep current with the latest news about heart and brain health with our blog, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages, and check our calendar of events for BaleDoneen programs for patients and clinicians.

Making Prevention Profitable for Clinicians

We have a practice management program for clinicians that offers a step-by-step roadmap to implementing the BaleDoneen Method into their existing medical or dental practices. All of our current and upcoming programs are designed to help clinicians discover how delivering optimal preventive are can lead to these delightful benefits:

  • Healthier Patients, Living Without Fear of a Heart Attack or Stroke
  • Thriving, Profitable Medical and Dental Practices
  • Balanced, Enriching Lifestyles for Clinicians


*This guarantee is offered ONLY to patients of Dr. Bale and Dr. Doneen at the two clinics listed above and does NOT apply to patients of any other healthcare provider.
