"Dr. Eleanor C. Mariano is the President and Founder of the Center for Executive Medicine (CEM) in Scottsdale, Arizona. She is known to her patients and the media as Dr. Connie Mariano. To two former Presidents of the United States and their families, Dr. Mariano is simply “Dr. Connie.” Dr. Mariano graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology, cum laude, June 1977 from Revelle College at the University of California in San Diego. She attended the nation’s military medical school, the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences School of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland, graduating with a Doctor of Medicine degree in May 1981. Dr. Mariano completed her internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the Naval Hospital San Diego, CA in 1982 and 1986 respectively. She is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians (FACP) and board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine since 1987. She has been a diplomate of the National Board of Medical Examiners since 1982. Dr. Mariano is licensed to practice medicine in Arizona and California. Dr. Mariano’s highest position in medicine was held as Physician to the President for President William J. Clinton, from 1994-2001. She has also held the title of Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Uniformed Services University School of Health Sciences and the Mayo School of Medicine. An expert on the care of VIPs, celebrities, and world leaders, Dr. Mariano is a frequent guest speaker at international conferences as well as on media specials such as CNN’s “The Health of the President.” With over thirty years in the medical profession, Dr. Mariano has taken care of patients both in the military and private sector. She brings to the CEM her unique experience and passion in providing the highest standard of care to all her patients. During those rare moments she can define as “free time,” Dr. Mariano enjoys writing (author of The White House Doctor: My Patients were Presidents” published in 2010 by St. Martin’s Press), hosting her monthly internet radio show, “Dr. Connie’s House Calls” on the Empowerment Channel of Voice America network; travel with her retired-CEO husband; and visiting her grandchildren."
"Dr. Mariano is a board certified Internal Medicine physician who has been practicing medicine over 30 years. A 24 year veteran of the U.S. Navy who retired with the rank of Rear Admiral, Dr. Mariano was White House Physician to three American presidents (Bush Sr, Clinton, Bush) and Director of the White House Medical Unit. After retiring from the Navy and leaving the White House in 2001, Dr. Mariano was a senior consultant physician in the Executive Health Program at the Mayo Clinic Scottsdale where she performed annual exams and managed the care of corporate CEOs and their spouses. Dr. Mariano founded her medical concierge practice, The Center for Executive Medicine (CEM) in November 2005 in pursuit of a better way to provide medical care to her patients. Her practice provides exclusive access to her for her member patients along with comprehensive appointment visits, facilitated referrals, and minimal waiting to gain appointments with Dr. Mariano. The CEM also provides, as a courtesy to our patients, a billing service to file each claim for visits as an effort to spare our patients the bureaucratic task required to file medical insurance claims. Each claim is reimbursed directly to the patient. The CEM does not participate with insurance companies which means clients will probably be reimbursed at an out-of-network basis for most visits. Each insurance agency has different rules and we advise that our patients check with their insurance carrier regarding reimbursement rules. In order to provide the personalized services our patients enjoy, Dr. Mariano limits her patient membership to under 350 patients. There is an annual fee to join the CEM. The membership fee is an access fee that allows the exclusive 24/7 access to Dr. Mariano."
