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 clinical educator and medical researcher. I represent the future of healthcare by bridging the gap between medical science and medical practice to help slow the aging process, reverse disease, and extend life.


As one of the top minds in the fields of metabolic and nutritional medicine, I have the wisdom and experience of an older doctor, and the passion and up-to-date knowledge of a newer doctor. I’ve been in practice for 30 years and I have the latest academic credentials, scientific expertise, and advanced clinical skills needed to prevent and treat disease, such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s.


My promises to you are these: I will listen and understand your needs. I will identify your health issues and 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 or insurance companies. I will take our “health partnership” seriously and will work hard to improve your health and help you live a long and productive life. 


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. In addition, it allowed me to offer a higher level 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. 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 skeptical 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 know what it takes to help prevent aging from stealing 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 like MD’s. However, 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.
