Bio

Mark A. Supiano, MD, is a geriatrician in the University Hospital Geriatrics Clinic. As a geriatrician, his clinical interests include providing comprehensive geriatric assessment consultations with a particular interest in high blood pressure (hypertension) and disorders of blood pressure regulation (orthostatic or postural hypotension). He has been regularly cited by the Best Doctors in America in Geriatric Medicine.

Dr. Supiano received his MD from the University of Wisconsin and training in Internal Medicine and Geriatric Medicine from the University of Michigan. He was a University of Michigan faculty member prior to joining the Utah School of Medicine faculty in 2005.

Throughout his career, Dr. Supiano has responded to the demographic imperative of our aging population in his clinical practice of Geriatric Medicine, in conducting patient-oriented clinical research, and in a commitment to medical education and research training. His research has been recognized with awards from the American Geriatrics Society and the Gerontological Society of America and he is a Fellow in each of these societies.

Dr. Supiano was very personable. He explained things very well and made helpful suggestions. The university needs to be congratulated for employing such a superb doctor. He treated me with great respect and thoughtfulness. I have been very pleased with the care I have gotten from him and his entire staff. If it were in the performing arts, it would merit a standing ovation.

I was extremely pleased with the thorough way he explained things to me. He took the time necessary, and I came away understanding things much better.

July 04, 2015

Dr. was wonderful!

April 06, 2015

I like observing Dr. Supiano's interactions with my mom. I also appreciate his willingness to work with Dr. Freimer and my mother's primary care physician, Dr. Cacciamani.

November 30, 2014

I liked the both very well.

June 06, 2014

My mother found the doctors attitude very arrogant and is desirous to find another provider for her follow-up. The doctor only works on Tuesday afternoons, making availability very limited

April 11, 2014

Excellent.

Academic Bio

Mark A. Supiano, MD, is a geriatrician in the University Hospital Geriatrics Clinic. As a geriatrician, his research interests pertain to the mechanisms that contribute to the age-related increase in blood pressure (hypertension) and disorders of blood pressure regulation (orthostatic or postural hypotension). His patient-oriented research program has been distinguished by a record of continuous funding that began with an Academic Award from the National Institute on Aging (K08; 1988-1993). He currently directs an ancillary study to the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT) that is assessing vascular stiffness – measured by pulse wave velocity – as a measure that may predict outcomes in this trial (R01 HL107241).

Throughout his career, Dr. Supiano has responded to the demographic imperative of our aging population in his clinical practice of Geriatric Medicine, in conducting patient-oriented clinical research, and in a commitment to medical education and research training. His research has been recognized with awards from the American Geriatrics Society and the Gerontological Society of America and he is a Fellow in each of these societies. He is currently a Board Member of the American Geriatrics Society and the Association of Directors of Academic Geriatric Programs.
