Dr. Tracie Leonhardt grew up as a member of the local community and is a graduate of Largo High School. She graduated from Southeastern University (now known as Nova University) in 1992, completed her internship at Suncoast Hospital in Largo, and, completed her Residency in Emergency Medicine at Midwestern University in Chicago, Illinois in 1996. Dr. Leonhardt began her 14 year tenure in emergency medicine at Northside Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida in 1996, where she earned the titles of Associate Medical Director of the Emergency Department, Chairperson of the Emergency Department and then Medical Director of the Emergency Department. During her tenure in the Emergency Department, Dr. Leonhardt also worked with medical control for over 10 years as an online medical control physician, in which she worked closely with our first responders in the field while enhancing their education. Dr. Leonhardt was honored to present a lecture to the American Osteopathic Society in New Orleans in 2010 on the subject of Type II Diabetes.
In 2003, Dr. Leonhardt was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes and preceded on a new quest to improve her health. Despite optimal medical treatment for her diabetes, she proceeded to worsen in her disease process, leading to 7 different medications including high dose insulin. Unhappy with the traditional standard of care, she started the search for new innovative methods of treatment. This journey led her to study Bariatric medicine (weight loss). She proceeded to lose just under 100 pounds and stopped taking her medications for diabetes – via diet control. Dr. Leonhardt has since extensively studied the metabolic and hormone systems, which has led her to the discovery that Type II Diabetes can be reversed in certain patients. This has led to her reversal of type II Diabetes for the past 6 years.
Dr. Leonhardt has completed her advanced fellowship training in anti-aging and regenerative medicine, passing both the written and oral board exams. She is currently completing her master's program in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine at USF medical school. Dr. Leonhardt currently practices Integrative and Functional Medicine, which is more about finding the root cause of a disease and correcting the abnormality than just fixing the symptoms. Dr. Leonhardt has two radio shows a week on 1110 am radio, she lectures and teaching the medical students and residents at St. Petersburg General Hospital and writes articles for various publications. She has been endorsed by Suzanne Somers and can be found as a preferred physician on her website.
