Dr. John Tidwell is Opt Health’s Chief Medical Officer. As an orthopaedic trauma surgeon, Dr. Tidwell quickly discovered the lack of emphasis that conventional medicine places on preventing disease. Why treat diseases when we can prevent them altogether?
This insight led Dr. Tidwell to seek out a BHRT L1 certification from the Academy of Preventive and Innovative Medicine as well as training from the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). So when childhood friend Camilo Isaza (Opt Health’s co-founder and CEO) reached out for help with a telehealth platform focusing on men’s wellness and preventive medicine, Dr. Tidwell was immediately on board.
Dr. Tidwell graduated from Georgia Tech at the top of his class with a degree in engineering before discovering and pursuing orthopaedics, a field of medicine that merges engineering with human physiology.
After graduating from the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University in 2008, Dr. Tidwell completed his residency at West Virginia University Hospitals and an orthopaedic trauma fellowship at Penn State’s Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. From 2015 to 2017, Dr. Tidwell served as a clinical instructor of orthopaedic surgery for Community Regional Medical Centers in Fresno, California.
Besides his work as a surgeon, Dr. Tidwell has contributed extensively to research in the field of orthopaedics, with papers appearing in Injury, the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma, and the American Journal of Orthopaedics. He has also given lectures on his work throughout North America.
In his spare time, Dr. Tidwell pushes the limits of his endurance by competing in marathons and triathlons.
Dr. Graham Simpson is one of the world’s leading experts on anti-aging, sexual rejuvenation, and diabesity.

In addition to being board-certified in internal, age management, and emergency medicine, Dr. Simpson is a licensed homeopath, a BHRT expert, and an advocate of holistic and proactive approaches to achieving and maintaining good health.

Additionally, he co-authored Spa Medicine: Your Guide to the Ageless Zone and Eternity: A Guide to Immortality.
Dr. Simpson’s dedication to wellness through preventive medicine and holistic health practices makes him a natural fit for the Opt Health team.
