Dr. Daniel Royal was born
in Winston-Salem, North Carolina while his father was attending medical school
and his mother nursing school at Wake Forest University. After his father completed his service in the
Air Force as a Flight Surgeon, he moved the family from Texas to Oregon and
went into private practice. Later, at 14 years of age, Daniel began
working in his father’s medical clinic in Eugene, Oregon where he processed lab
tests for thyroid and served as an x-ray technician.
In 1980, following a
2-year mission for the LDS Church to Hamburg, Germany, he returned to Las
Vegas, Nevada where he worked as a technician in the homeopathic pharmacy of
the Nevada Clinic. In 1985, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in
Biology from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas (“UNLV”) and began attending
the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (“COMP”). Daniel obtained his Doctorate of Osteopathic
Medicine degree in 1989. In 1990, he
completed a residency with Mesa General Hospital in Mesa, Arizona, obtained his
osteopathic and homeopathic licensures in Nevada, and began working with his
father, Fuller Royal, MD, HMD, an allopathic and homeopathic physician practicing
in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In the 1990's, Dr. Royal
became Board Certified in Family Practice and obtained additional training in
medical alternatives in Europe and Canada.
He also spent time practicing medicine in Lancaster County Pennsylvania
where he worked in a rural clinic on an Amish farm and served as the physician
to many of the local Amish and Mennonites. Eventually, he returned to Las Vegas and in
July 1996 opened his own clinic, “Royal Center of Advanced Medicine.”
In August 1998, Dr. Royal
began attending UNLV's William S. Boyd School of Law. When he graduated, Daniel was one of only
two people in the UNLV Law Class of 2002 to have taken and passed the United
States Patent Bar Exam where he is licensed to practice patent law as a patent attorney
with the United States Patent Office. Dr. Royal passed the bar exam in
October 2002 and is licensed to practice law in the State of Nevada.
In 2010, Dr. Royal conducted a small clinical
study using an adaptogen complex where he showed that a supplement could be
used to correct nutritional deficiencies.
In January 2011, he filed a provisional patent for a method of obtaining
pluripotent stem cells from autologous blood, which was later converted to a
utility patent in January 2012. Currently,
Dr. Royal is practicing medicine and serving as Chief Physician and Medical
Director for the Royal Medical Clinic in Henderson, Nevada
