Dr. Rob Huizenga
Team doctor for the Los Angeles Raiders football team from 1983 to 1990, Dr. Huizenga chronicled his experiences in the book, You’re OK, It’s Just a Bruise—A Doctor’s Sideline Secrets about Pro-Football’s Most Outrageous Team. During its release in 1994, the controversial book sparked a national debate about steroid use and ergogenic aid in professional sports. The book ultimately served as the inspiration for the Oliver Stone film, Any Given Sunday. A graduate of Harvard Medical School, Dr. Huizenga has been Chief Resident at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and is currently Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at UCLA. He is also in private practice in Beverly Hills, California. He has appeared as a health expert on many network news and interview shows and has testified as a medical expert in a number of high-profile trials. In addition to The Biggest Loser, his television and movie consulting credits include Extreme Makeover, WorkOut, Student Body and Into the Wild.
