Dr. William Cromwell
33 years experience male
Since 1990 my practice has specialized in the management of cholesterol and lipoprotein disorders. Over the past 20 years I have served as the Medical Director or Chief of Divisions of Atherosclerosis and Lipoprotein disorders in several health care systems. In addition to being certified by the American Board of Clinical lipidology, I am a Fellow of the American Heart Association Council on Atherosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology, as well as a Fellow of the National Lipid Association. Academically, I am Adjunct Associate Professor in the Hypertension and Vascular Disease Center at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. I have served on expert panels publishing national recommendations on the evaluation and management of patients with familial hypercholesterolemia, as well as clinical utilization of lipoprotein and inflammatory biomarkers. Additionally, I have published over 20 peer-reviewed book chapters, invited review articles, and original research in lipid and lipoprotein disorders.
