Fran Kaiser, Endocrinologist and Gerontologist at Kaiser and Associates Consulting, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of geriatric medicine.
Originally planning to practice as an obstetrician/gynecologist or a cardiologist, Dr. Kaiser was drawn to the field of endocrinology because she finds it wonderful to treat a person as a whole instead of focusing on specialized areas. She earned a Bachelor of Science from the City College of New York in 1970, a Doctor of Medicine from New York Medical College in 1974, and interned at the Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City from 1974 to 1975 before serving as a resident and later chief resident for the institution from 1975 to 1978. She is certified under the American Board of Internal Medicine as well as the American Board of Geriatric Medicine and though she has been retired from practicing medicine since 2016, Dr. Kaiser is the CEO of Kaiser and Associates Consulting. Prior to this role, she had served Merck & Co. Inc. from 1997 to 2016 as the senior regional medical director, executive medical director, and medical director of health systems and medical affairs. Dr. Kaiser has also shared her knowledge with others by lecturing as a professor at St. Louis University, the University of Minnesota, and the University of California Los Angeles School of Medicine.
Dr. Kaiser has conducted research in hormonal changes with aging, erectile dysfunction, testosterone, estrogen and frailty as well as women’s health, sexuality, and osteoporosis, and has contributed articles to professional journals and to the Geriatrics Review Syllabus. She has been an editorial board member of the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, the American Geriatric Society, and an ad hoc reviewer for the Journal of the American Medical Association and the Journal of American Geriatrics Society. Dr. Kaiser is glad to see more women in the field as there were not many women practitioners when she first began her career, and she is proud of those whom she has been able to train in medicine. She plans on continuing to teach others about endocrinology and looks forward to helping others thrive in the field.
