Who We Are

Dr. ThomasHello and welcome. My name is Dr. Daniel Thomas. For many, good health starts with finding the right physician. I am not only a physician, I am also a physician educator and medical researcher. I represent the future of medicine by bridging the gap between conventional and alternative medicine to address the root cause of health problems, rather than just treat the symptoms.


As one of the top minds in the fields of preventive, anti-aging, functional, and integrative medicine, I have the wisdom and years of experience of an older doctor, and the passion and up-to-date knowledge of a newer doctor. I have been in practice for 30 years and I have the latest academic credentials, scientific expertise, and advanced clinical skills needed to slow aging, reverse disease, and extend life.


My promise to you is this: I will identify your health issues and will provide you with a safe, effective, and natural treatment plan. I will give you straight answers and offer solutions that are not influenced by drug companies or insurance companies. Because I take your health very seriously, I will listen and understand your needs, and I will work hard to help you get better and stay well.


I earned my medical degree from Des Moines University and served my hospital internship at Northwest General Hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Because learning only begins in medical school, I didn’t stop there. In addition to a medical degree, I earned a Master of Science degree in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine from the University of South Florida College of Medicine. This advanced degree provided a deeper understanding of cellular biochemistry and human physiology than was taught in medical school. It gave me a greater appreciation of the intimate connections between chronic disease, metabolic dysfunction, and faulty nutrition. Most importantly, it allowed me to practice beyond the standard of care, and gave me the practical knowledge on how to use the science of metabolic and nutritional medicine to improve health, reduce the effects of aging, and increase the lifespan of my patients. Out of the 900,000 physicians in the United States, less than 0.01% have this important and cutting-edge degree.


In addition to a Master’s degree, I have a Graduate Certificate in Metabolic Endocrinology and a Graduate Certificate in clinical neuroscience (brain health), both from the University of South Florida College of Medicine. I also have a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biochemistry from Andrews University and a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University. I am a recipient of the Physician’s Recognition Award from the American Medical Association, a Certified Personal Trainer with the American College of Sports Medicine, and a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.


To be a good messenger, one has to live the message. Be wary of any doctor who preaches a message of health but is not a picture of health themselves. As a doctor, all of my credentials would be meaningless if I did not live the message. I take my own health very seriously, and to set a good example to others, I practice what I preach. In spite of poor genetics, the excellent health and vitality I enjoy is a direct result of the same program I utilize for my patients. While many men my age are starting to fall apart, mentally and physically, I am healthier and in better shape than most men half my age, and I can take what I know and help prevent aging from diminishing your health and vitality.


Our unique and home-like office is warm, relaxing, and inviting. The moment you step in, you’ll know you’ve come to the right place. The individualized attention we provide our patients is almost unheard of in today’s profit-driven healthcare system. Our fees are reasonable and appointments are thorough, professional, and unhurried. We treat our patients with a level of care, compassion, and respect that can be difficult to find nowadays, and we are passionate about helping our patients enjoy healthier, happier, and longer lives! 


If you are serious about your health, and if I am the kind of doctor you are looking for, I invite you to call my office today.


Yours in good health,


Dr. Daniel Thomas, DO, MS

P.P.S. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the difference between MD’s and DO’s, doctors of osteopathic medicine, or DO’s, are fully licensed physicians who specialize in all areas of medicine and surgery. However, unlike many doctors of allopathic medicine, or MD’s, osteopathic physicians know there’s far more to good health than simply the absence of disease. DO’s are educated and trained to focus on prevention by gaining a deeper understanding of your lifestyle and environment, rather than just treating your symptoms.
