About Dr. Hakkarainen

 Gloria Hakkarainen, obstetrician and gynecologist, is a member of Palm Beach Obstetrics & Gynecology, the most innovative practice in Palm Beach County, with three locations to serve women throughout their entire life cycle.

Dr. Gloria Hakkarainen is unusual in the medical field in that she holds multiple board certifications rather than the more typical single certification. Although her primary specialty is in Obstetrics and Gynecology, she is also board-certified in bariatric medicine and anti-aging medicine. To round out these specialties, she is also a Certified Sex Therapist. The combination of knowledge and experience allows her to focus on her passion of complete women's health and wellness.

Dr. Hakkarainen began her education with a degree in Biochemistry and Psychobiology with honors from Wellesley College. After graduation, she began working as a Research Biochemist at Harvard Medical School. Her interests lay with hands-on care, however, and she went on to pursue a medical degree from Albany Medical College. Dr. Hakkarainen completed her residency in OB/GYN at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where she practiced high-risk obstetrics and learned to perform pelvic reconstructive surgery.

Her personal interest in weight loss crystallized with personally losing 72 pounds, and she passed the board examinations of the American Board of Bariatric Medicine in 2004. After continued studies, she then completed board certification in Anti-Aging Medicine in 2006. Still not willing to rest on her laurels, she is currently taking classes in functional medicine, which will help her to combine the best weight loss and anti-aging medicine in a holistic, integrative approach to bring her patients high-quality care. In practice since 1999, Dr. Hakkarainen is an advanced laparoscopic gynecologic surgeon trained in using the DaVinci Robot at JFK Hospital. She is currently the President of the Palm Beach County OB/GYN Society and is on the board of trustees at JFK Hospital.

A popular speaker on women's health issues, Dr. Hakkarainen is a regular columnist for VIVE Magazine’s “Medicine and Miracles” section and has appeared on Lifetime Television and ABC News. She is also a lecturer for the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). Dr. Hakkarainen says her goal is to "help all of her patients look and feel great and, most importantly, be fit and healthy — the best anti-aging medicine available."
