Hello and welcome. My name is Dr. Daniel Thomas. For many, good health starts with finding the right doctor. I have been in practice for over 30 years. I represent a new breed of doctors working hard to redirect our healthcare system towards treatments that tackle the REAL causes of premature aging and chronic disease.
As one of the nation’s leading authorities in 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 have the right academic credentials, scientific expertise, and advanced clinical skills needed to prevent and reverse disease, slow the aging process, and profoundly improve quality of life.
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 help you enjoy a lifetime of good health.
I earned my medical degree from Des Moines University and served my hospital internship at Northwest General Hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Because medical education only begins in medical school, I didn’t stop there. In addition to a medical degree, I earned a post-doctoral 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 to my patients, 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 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 post-doctoral Graduate Certificate in Metabolic Endocrinology and another in Brain Fitness & Memory Management—both from the University of South Florida College of Medicine. This was followed by a Fellowship in Integrative Cancer Therapeutics with the Metabolic Medical Institute. I also have a Bachelor of Science degree in 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. Because my health is important to me, and because I wish to set a good example to others, I practice what I preach. In spite of poor genetics, the profound mental clarity and physical energy 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 improve 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!
In my clinical practice, I see patients 3-4 days per week. I spend the other days poring over medical journals and researching medical articles, listening to lectures, or attending scientific conferences. I am committed to staying abreast of the latest medical findings that can be used to improve the health and well-being of my patients. If you are serious about your health, and if I am the kind of doctor you would like to have on your side, please read this entire website first. Then give us a call.
Yours in good health,
Dr. Daniel Thomas, DO, MS
344 S. Highland St.
Mount Dora, FL 32757
P.S. You are in extra good hands because I have the privilege of working with my wife, Dr. Sylvia Torres-Thomas, PhD, RN. Dr. Torres-Thomas is a seasoned registered nurse and a published clinical researcher with over 30 years of experience. She earned her Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) in Nursing from the University of Central Florida (less than 1% of nurses have a PhD). While there, she received the prestigious Order of Pegasus award. Dr. Torres-Thomas was also chosen as a Rising Star of Scholarship and Research at the International Nursing Research Congress in 2015. She is an adjunct Associate Professor of Nursing at Herzing University in Orlando.
Dr. Torres-Thomas also has a Master of Science degree in Nursing Education from the University of Central Florida, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Andrews University. She has given numerous scientific presentations at regional, national, and international conferences. Dr. Torres-Thomas is a member of Sigma Theta Tau, the National Nursing Honor Society. In addition to her numerous credentials, to demonstrate better the remarkable healing power of nutrition to our patients, and to more effectively teach them how to prepare delicious and healthy meals, Dr. Torres-Thomas was trained as a professional natural foods chef at the Rouxbe Cooking School.
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.
