Plotnikoff, MD, MTS, FACP is the Senior Consultant at Minnesota Personalized Medicine, a micro-practice dedicated to serving patients suffering from mystery, complexity, and severity despite extensive medical evaluations.

From 2002-2008, Dr. Plotnikoff served as an associate professor at Keio University School of Medicine where he studied, researched and taught the Kampo herbal medicine tradition in Japanese.

Dr. Plotnikoff is the recipient of several international awards for research and teaching as well as the Early Career Distinguished Achievement Award from the University of Minnesota Medical School. He is the lead author in over 60 publications in the medical literature and 23 medical textbook chapters. His 2003 article on vitamin D deficiency and chronic pain is one of the most highly cited articles in the history of the Mayo Clinic Proceedings.
