C. Danielle DiPiero, DO
Danielle DiPiero, DO, is a board-certified family physician and member of the Institute for Functional Medicine. “Dr. D,” as her patients affectionately call her, joined Wellness First in 2017. Disillusioned and somewhat frustrated with the “one size fits all approach,” Dr. D has made it her mission to treat each person individually by first identifying the “why” of a problem or disease.
True to her osteopathic training, she sees each person as a “whole” – mind, body, and spirit – and believes the body has an incredible ability to heal itself given the right tools, resources, and knowledge. She believes empowering her patients to take control of their own health is of utmost importance. She aims to be a source of hope, encouragement, and accountability to her patients, recognizing it is often small, consistent steps that eventually lead a person to a better state of health and healing.
When not at Wellness First, you can find Dr. D on the pickleball court, at church, working out at her local gym, or frequenting her favorite local brunch spot. Originally from West Virginia, Dr. D has always considered Florida her home away from home and looks forward to deepening her roots here with family and serving the community in Palm Beach County.
Dr. D is a graduate of Palm Beach Atlantic University and the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed her residency at AnMed Health in Anderson, SC.
