Cary Nelson, M.D.
Family Medicine and Aesthetic Medicine

Dr. Cary D. Nelson is a board-certified family practitioner, aesthetic and medical concierge and nutraceutical advisor. He earned his undergraduate degree in Psychobiology at the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1993.

After a postgraduate spent working with Developmentally Disabled adults and as an EMT, he began his medical school journey at the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara, graduating in 2000, and then completing a requisite Fifth Pathway Program at New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York in 2001. 

Dr. Nelson began his internship in the heart of Brooklyn, New York at Wycoff Heights Medical Center in affiliation with Cornell University. He eventually transferred to the PIH Family Practice Residency Program, Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital in Whittier in 2005 and finished as Co-Chief resident. It was during his second year, however, that he found his passion for what was then a “new” field of medicine called Aesthetic Medicine.

He is currently on staff at Torrance Memorial Medical Center and on the Clinical Advisory Council for ThermiAesthetics. He has also taken on a role as scientific advisor for a nutraceutical supplement probiotic called the “Perfect Biotics.” Arguably the most complete probiotic on the market, it has helped Americans across the country with a multitude of health concerns, with internet-only U.S. sales topping 2.5M units in under two years.

Devoted to understanding the process of life through the ages, Dr. Nelson works part-time with multiple Southern California
hospice agencies providing support and teaching for nursing staff, visiting with ill patients and their families, and sharing guidance
in the dying process.

When he’s not working, Dr. Nelson enjoys spending time with his wife, his animals, working out and traveling.
