Dr. Pescatore is a traditionally trained physician practicing nutritional medicine in Manhattan and the Hamptons. He is the author of six books, including the New York Times best-seller, The Hamptons Diet and the No. 1 best-selling children's health book, Feed Your Kids Well.
Prior to opening his own practice, Dr. Pescatore worked closely with the late Dr. Robert C. Atkins, as Associate Medical Director of The Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine.
Now, "Dr. Fred" is internationally recognized as a health, nutrition, and weight loss expert in his own right. He is the President of the International and American Association of Clinical Nutritionists, member of the American College for the Advancement of Medicine, and belongs to many other professional organizations.
He is currently on the editorial board of Total Health and US Weekly magazines and is a regular contributor to many others. Major network television shows like Extra, The View, Rachael Ray, and Today have sought Dr. Pescatore out for his expert health advice. And his practice has become a haven for the rich and famous, drawing a roster of clientele that reads like a "Who's Who" of Hollywood's elite.
But behind all the glitz and glamour, Dr. Pescatore is also deeply involved in the philanthropic community, devoting time to working in hospitals in Tanzania, as well as helping to support local organizations for the youth in this country.
