Throughout his 31-year career in medicine, Dr. Wallin has been interested in optimizing health, optimizing fitness, preventative medicine, and aging successfully. This interest eventually brought him to the fields of Age Management Medicine and Functional Medicine, where he combines nutrition, fitness, hormone optimization, and appropriate and individualized supplements in a comprehensive and evidence-based approach to achieve optimal health and wellness for each of his patients. New office space in 2017 allowed the expansion of clinical scope to include therapy for erectile dysfunction (ED), Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections for ED (the P-shot) or for musculoskeletal issues, and Exercise Physiology testing for improved sports performance. He has been an active participant in a Cenegenics health program for several years, which has allowed him to lead an active and fulfilling lifestyle including multiple sports, interests, and hobbies.
In 1988, Dr. Wallin came to Fayetteville, N.C., and started a new Cardiac Surgery program, coordinating the development of the Cardiac Anesthesia department, the Cardiac OR’s, and the Cardiac ICU. After several years, he transitioned to Outpatient Anesthesia, where as President of the practice, he served in both an administrative and clinical capacity. He obtained Physician Training & Certification in Age Management Medicine with the Age Management Medicine Education Foundation (AMMEF) and the Age Management Medicine Group (AMMG). He completed a Fellowship in Age Management Medicine with Cenegenics Medical Institute, and since 2016 has been the President/CEO and Chief Medical Officer for Cenegenics Carolinas.
