ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Caroline J. Cederquist, MD has taken a road few physicians have traveled. Beginning in 1991, she started her career in family practice. As it often happens with conventional medicine, she found herself prescribing round after round of medication, while knowing that if her patients could lose around 20-30 pounds that they wouldn't need any medication at all.
With the desire to stop treating patients in a way that didn't address the root of her patients' problems, she came to a personal conclusion that conventional medicine did not provide all of the tools she needed to help her patients achieve optimum health.
Intent on discovering the underlying causes of her patients most common issues, like high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, and weight gain, she began to envision Cederquist Medical Wellness Center. She decided to move to Naples FL with her family, and committed to taking an entirely different approach to impact her patients' health. She wanted an approach that could reduce medications, decrease a variety of risk factors, and improve health and quality of life long-term, by using food as medicine, and working with patients on an individual basis.
Dr. Cederquist founded Cederquist Medical Wellness Center in 1997, with the primary aim of treating patients by addressing the causes of their health issues. By providing the right dietary and lifestyle treatment program, she has helped patients normalize cholesterol levels without any medication. Patients who have tried everything to lose weight finally find the answers they need, and they began to lose weight after years of failure. Patients who have diabetes are able to reduce or eliminate their medications. Most importantly, patients have been able to improve their health and well-being in life-transforming ways.
Every patient is evaluated as an individual, and receives personalized treatment. Dr. Cederquist understands that what works for one person does not guarantee it will work for another. With a customized treatment program created specifically for each patient, Dr. Cederquist has helped thousands of people lose weight and achieve better health.
One of only about 250 doctors nationwide to have achieved board certification in bariatrics - the specialty of medical weight management, Dr. Cederquist has appeared as a weight-management expert in a variety of venues, including:
The Dr. Phil Show
