Dr. Carm’s passion for wellness was instilled at an early age. Long before medical school, her old-world, Italian mother demonstrated that healthy living was grounded in simple, practical choices – eat your greens, everything in moderation, don’t take the bus when you can walk, laughter is the best medicine. Dr. Carm has lived her mother’s wisdom throughout her life and imparts it to all in her personal and professional worlds.

Dr. Carm is often quoted for her wellness wisdom. In addition, she participates in a wide range of activities centered around health and wellness.

“Dr. Carmella Sebastian has been a guest on Daytime for the past year. After her first appearance on the show it became very apparent that we needed to have her back as soon as possible. She has come on to the show to discuss everything from curbing a beer belly to diabetes awareness. Her segments are always knowledgeable, informative, intelligent, and entertaining. Recently, we had Dr. Mehmet Oz from “The Dr. Oz Show” as a guest. Dr. Carm immediately came to my mind to accompany him in a segment as one of our regular doctors. If you are looking for a doctor that can hold her own in the television arena, look no further than Dr. Carm.”
- Deanna George, producer of the nationally syndicated talk show Daytime
