Dr. Rogers lived in Lincoln Park and then Trenton before his parents moved to Grosse Ile when he was four years of age. He participated in track and was yearbook editor in high school. After graduating from medical school, he completed training in internal medicine and cardiology at the Detroit Osteopathic Hospital. One year of his cardiology training was at Emory University in Atlanta. Together, he and his brother formed the corporation that became Downriver Cardiology Consultants in September 1978.
Dr. Rogers places an emphasis on echocardiography, vascular studies and electrocardiography. He and the other physicians at DCC have a major commitment to prevention of heart disease. Medical education has always been an important part of Dr. Rogers’ activity. He has been the Director of the Cardiology Fellowship Training Program since it began in 1978. He is a scientific advisor to the NIH National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. He also serves as Associate Editor of the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association.
In his spare time, Dr. Rogers ran the nonprofit organization, Cranbrook Peace Foundation for a period of 20 years. He really enjoys gardening.

They have two adult children, Elizabeth now in medical school and Alison, who is getting an advanced degree in poetry.
