Dr. Rob Carlson - The Doctor Who Cares!

Rob Carlson, MD FACS is a doctor who truly cares. He firmly believes that lab ranges are one thing, but how his patients feel is what is truly important. Highlighted in three of Suzanne Somer’s books, Dr. Rob has transitioned from one of the country’s leading cardiac-thoracic surgeons to a doctor committed to improving the baby boomers’ quality of life; he has evolved to meet the needs of clients as well as the changing face of practicing medicine.

Dr. Rob received his BS degree cum laude, double majoring in Chemistry and Biology from Valparaiso University, and his MD degree from Wright State School of Medicine graduating in the top 15%. He participated in cardiovascular research at Harvard University, and published extensively in burn metabolism during his medical school and surgical training. His postgrad training was in General Surgery at the University of Florida where Dr. Rob received numerous research awards and the coveted Woodward Surgical award (the top surgical resident award.) He completed his cardiothoracic surgical training at Shands Hospital, University of Florida in 1994, and developed a minimally invasive cardiac and thoracic surgical practice in Sarasota, Florida. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and has three times received “America’s Top Doctor Award” in cardiothoracic surgery. The Consumer Research Council of America has recognized Dr. Rob Carlson as Top American Surgeon in the Guide to America’s Top Surgeons 2002-2003, and 2006-2007, and 2010 editions, as well as 2005 Physician of the Year by the NRCC, and recently the coveted Man of the Year in Medicine and Healthcare by the ABI.

Today, Dr. Rob continues to be board certified in General Surgery, in Thoracic Surgery, and through the American Academy of Anti-aging Medicine in Age Management Medicine. A leading cardiothoracic surgeon and a pioneer in cardiothoracic research, Dr. Rob has perfected the latest procedures curing patients through surgical procedures as well as performing research to develop new operations, optimize recovery, and improve post-operative care. He began work in preventative medicine 8 years ago, being cited in three of Suzanne Somers’ books, Ageless: The Naked Truth About Bioidentical Hormones, Breakthroughs: Eight Steps To Wellness, and Knock-out as a doctor she recommends for his  expertise. He retired from his surgical career to be fully devoted towards improving the quality of life of his patients in such a way that their next visit will be at the office, not the operating table. “Don’t wait until it is too late” takes on a different meaning in medicine.

Dedicated to healthy living, Dr. Rob is also a three-time Ironman, avid runner, and has completed over 20 marathons. He is happy married and the proud father of an up and coming athlete.
