Subsequent positions included terms as the hospital Director of Medical Education, Chief of Cardiology, Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation, and Director of the Weight Reducing Program.

Medical Philosophy
In his books, newsletter, and interviews, Dr. Sinatra advocates treatment approaches that combine conventional medical therapies with nutritional and mind-body therapies to enhance the body natural bioenergetics and heal the heart. He promotes four specific pillars of cardiac health: (1) an anti-inflammatory diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, fish, nuts, and healthy oils, similar to the Mediterranean Diet; (2) nutritional supplementation that includes a high-potency multi-nutrient, fish oil, magnesium, vitamin C, and coenzyme Q10; (3) regular exercise; and (4) stress reduction.
Dr. Sinatra is particularly aware of the impact one emotions have on overall health and the need to resolve emotional blockages as well as physical ones. He has stated that henever you confront a person with an illness, you have to involve everything, including the spiritual.Every illness has a psychological and a physical component.2] Such interconnectedness can be seen in the relationship between unexpressed negative emotionsnger and sadness, for examplend the development of high blood pressure and heart disease.
Dr. Sinatra 2005 presentation at the American College for the Advancement of Medicine Conference on Scientific Integrative Medicine introduced the concept of etabolic cardiology.7] This type of therapy involves giving patients supplemental doses of substances that occur naturally in the body in order to enhance metabolic reactions in cells. Dr. Sinatra believes coenzyme Q10, D-ribose, and L-carnitine to be especially important in this process because of the roles they play in the production and use of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body basic cellular fuel. In this context, he has called coenzyme Q10 a onder nutrient, especially in women, for its ability to help the heart pump more effectively. His ACAM presentation also suggested that low levels of coenzyme Q10 may result in the development of heart disease.
Dr. Sinatra has often been critical of the over-emphasis on cholesterol as an independent risk factor for heart disease and of what he considers the over-prescription of statin drugs. Most statin drugs, which block an enzyme pathway necessary for the body to produce cholesterol, also block the enzyme pathway by which the body naturally produces coenzyme Q10. Sinatra acknowledges that these drugs accomplish their goal of reducing cholesterol, but maintains that they also deprive the heart and other muscles of a vital nutrient and thereby set the stage for potential heart failure.
Dr. Sinatra is also critical of refined sugar, which he has called ublic enemy number one when it comes to heart disease, not cholesterol.11] He believes the surges of insulin that occur when too much sugar is consumed create a o-yo effect that, over time, damages the inner lining of the blood vessels. He also believes that sugar is linked to the proliferation of cancer cells.
