Dr. Linell King’s personal mission is to improve the lives of others; eliminate suffering, and help others to reclaim their optimal vitality and health independence. He is committed to educating and empowering those around him through his role as a physician, teacher, author, and mentor.
Traditionally trained as an internist, Dr. King earned his doctoral degree at the University Of Wisconsin School Of Medicine in 1997. He completed his internal medicine residency with Johns Hopkins/Sinai Hospital of Baltimore in 2000. His early career was spent working as a hospitalist, later moving on to create multiple hospitalist groups in Naples, Key West, Venice, and Tampa, FL. He worked as a Medical Director/Internal Medicine Hospitalist in various locations, eventually establishing Ultimate Vitality Partners, as a concierge outpatient physician, in 2012.
Dissatisfied with the current state of healthcare in America; devastated by the effects of common, yet fatal disease within his own family, Dr. King knew that he had to learn and do more. He searched for ways to bring people the knowledge and tools that could help them create and maintain greater overall health and less dependence on an outdated healthcare model.
He wanted to help others uncover the real causes of their health challenges, rather than endlessly treating and managing symptoms. He pursued further education in Functional and Integrative Medicine, to learn more about how nutrition, lifestyle factors, and treating the whole person could radically improve their immediate and long term health and quality of life. Dr. King is the author of “Mastering Vitality,” and has spoken locally and internationally about utilizing combined methods of traditional and holistic modalities to safely create optimal health and wellbeing. He founded Naples Vitality in order to improve healthcare in the community and the world at large.
