Nicole Burns, DO

Nicole Burns, DO is a dual board-certified physician (AOBPMR and ABOM) and an expert in the field of musculoskeletal care, interventional procedures, regenerative medicine, obesity medicine, and aesthetic medicine. She has been practicing minimally invasive procedures for over 11 years, and she is frequently sought after for her unique skill set. Her expertise is requested by other physicians nationwide to perform procedures and educate other providers in the field of musculoskeletal care and aesthetic medicine. She has experience treating top athletes from WNBA, LPGA, Arizona State University football team, and Arizona diamondbacks. 

Prior to medicine, she studied biomedical engineering at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in the field of tissue engineering and artificial organs. Her interest in regenerative medicine began during her research years at the university, and she has applied this knowledge to her clinical practice. Following clinical practice guidelines for regenerative medicine and applying them to facial rejuvenation has been a new passion of hers. The patients under her care are seeing incredible results with her techniques.

Outside of medicine, she enjoys spending time with her husband and four children. They enjoy tennis, soccer, and other outdoor activities!

Deborah Cole-Sedivy, DO

Dr. Deborah Cole-Sedivy completed her undergraduate work at Ohio University & The Ohio State University and received a BS in Pharmacy and a MS in Clinical Hospital Pharmacy. She graduated with honors from medical school at the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, completed an internship at Doctor’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, and then completed a highly competitive Family Medicine Residency at Grant Medical Center in Columbus.  

 

Dr. Cole-Sedivy practiced full spectrum family practice including OB in Cleveland before relocating back to Columbus where she worked for OSU, initially as a staff physician and then for 10 years as both physician and medical director of a 140K visit outpatient system with 9 locations. During this time, she also provided prenatal care for indigent patients at a neighborhood clinic. Dr. Cole-Sedivy served on several committees at OSU including the Medical School Admission Committee and was a Clinical Assistant Professor.

A new trend was just developing around 1999, minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, and Dr. C-S took a leap of faith and left the security of the university to start her own practice as one of a very few non-plastic surgeons/non-dermatologists to enter into this arena.  The practice was both family medicine and aesthetics and later aesthetics only.  Dr. C-S has 20 years of aesthetic medicine experience and has trained nurse practitioners and physicians in injectables and the use of lasers. She is known for producing natural looking results with attention to symmetry. 

Dr. C-S is board certified in Family Medicine and is a Fellow in the American Academy of Family Practice. She is also board certified by the American Board of Anti-Aging & Regenerative Medicine (ABAARM). She holds professional memberships with the AAFP (American Academy of Family Physicians) & A4M  (American Academy of Anti Aging Medicine) & FAFP (Florida Academy of Family Physician).

Dr. C-S was fortunate to be able to sell her very successful practice and move to lovely Sarasota the end of last year. She and Chuck Sedivy are doing renovations, enjoying some time off and playing with their 2 golden retrievers, Ellie & Rosie.
