Biography

Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Dr. Hoberman developed a strong interest in medicine during high school, knowing he would one day become a doctor. After graduating from the University of Nebraska, he completed medical school at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine, and an internship at Indiana University Medical Center. His residency was interrupted when the U.S. Air Force recruited him to be a flight surgeon, which led to Aerospace Medicine training at Brook Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.

After completing his tour of duty, Dr. Hoberman resumed his internal medicine residency at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio and later entered a two-year gastroenterology fellowship at Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. Following the fellowship and completing a year of active duty on the teaching faculty at Wilford Hall, he entered the private practice of gastroenterology in San Antonio. After 25 years treating patients as a gastroenterologist, he chose to enter the field of preventative medicine at Health by Design as Associate Director of Executive Exams.

Dr. Hoberman developed a holistic approach to medicine, becoming interested in the importance of the intestinal bacteria or microbiome for intestinal health and function. Frustrated by the lack of options to treat his patients suffering from Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD), he met with a PhD microbiologist to identify a combination of bacteria that might work to destroy the harmful bacteria living in the intestines, improving and maintaining the health of adults.

The result of his efforts was the formula of 10 bacteria strains and 20 billion colony forming units (CFUs). He founded Medical Care Innovations, and EndoMune Advanced Probiotic (EndoMune.com) for adults was introduced to the market in 2007. Two years later he developed a formula of 4 bacteria strains and 10 billion CFUs for children ages 8 and under. During the summer of 2013, EndoMune Advanced Junior became the first probiotic to be certified as Parent Tested Parent Approved, a North American Award. His latest supplement, EndoMune Metabolic Rescue, provides 2 billion CFUs of the beneficial Bifidobacterium lactis and 1200 mg of Xylooligosaccharides (XOS), a prebiotic shown to slow gastric emptying, and improve satiety and insulin sensitivity.
