Dr. Carol Roberts Named Among “10 Best Holistic Practitioners”

Before she came to Sarasota to open her current practice, Best Medicine, Inc., Dr. Carol Roberts practiced in Naples. She was invited there to join David Perlmutter, MD, author of Grain Brain and other books on functional neurology.  

Dr. Perlmutter retired in 2013, but Dr. Roberts continued on to become the medical director of The Naples Center for Functional Medicine, a Health Lynked facility. Then, in August 2023, Dr. Roberts left Naples to serve the Sarasota area, a city she loves for its diversity and cultural activities. Many of her patients have chosen to follow her from Naples and Sarasota and keep her as their doctor. 

Recently, a poll was undertaken by the holistic wellness publication “Essential Naples.” Readers of this magazine were asked to vote for their 10 favorite practitioners of functional, holistic, and alternative medicine or dentistry. On April 17, 2024, Dr. Roberts was named among these “10 Best Holistic Practitioners.”  

She is proud to display this award at her office in Full Spectrum Health, where she utilizes her 30-plus years of clinical experience to serve the local community of Sarasota, Venice, Bradenton, and beyond. Dr. Roberts also offers free monthly classes on the first Wednesday of each month at Unity of Sarasota, from 2–4 p.m. Reservations are encouraged. 

Location: Full Spectrum Health, 2106 Bispham Rd., Sarasota. To schedule an appointment or reserve a spot in her classes, call 941-404-8030. For more information, visit
