List of Recommended Medical Doctors, Naturopaths & Chiropractors that go above and beyond.

Post image for List of Recommended Medical Doctors, Naturopaths & Chiropractors that go above and beyond.

Through a number of conversations on facebook- it became painfully obvious to me that many people are in desperate need of finding the answers to chronic health issues. Many have doctors that have given them the “IBS” diagnosis.. which if you have IBS you know this diagnosis means “sorry – we have no idea what’s wrong with you- but we are going to pretend we do” and then you are sent on your way to suffer.

Over the past 2 years to get under what the heck was making me chronically ill- I saw 5 different doctors. I went both the natural route and medical doctor route. It was discouraging at times- but in the end I found my answers. Today I really want to encourage you to continue your search in finding a doctor that may be able to save your life. Living with chronic pain should never be acceptable. To help you on this search I put together this list of Medical Doctors, Naturopaths and Chiropractors that came to me HIGHLY recommended by many facebook friends. These doctors went above and beyond to help (most of these recommendations came with a story.. I wish I could share them all)

If you specifically have issues with your thyroid (or suspect that you may) PLEASE check out this list from Datis Kharrazian’s website (order his book too!!)

I am recommending Paula Fitzsimmons, PA – Schuyler Memorial Hospital/
Montour Falls Primary Care Center
230 Steuben St.
Montour Falls, NY 14865

Paula is the most amazing diagnostician when it comes to autoimmune issues, gut issues etc. and she is caring, compassionate and spends significant time with her patients. She also uncovered my severe Vitamin D deficiency (Get tested for D25 ladies, and it doesn’t always matter where you live or how much sun you think you get), B12 insufficiency and SIBO/Candida. She works with Amanda Fey, ND from Ithaca, NY / Johnson City, NY for dietary and supplement changes as needed. I have suffered for years. I finally am getting the help I need.

Tricia December 6, 2012 at 2:01 am

Great list.

WOW _ I almost can’t believe all those progressive Dr.’s in Rochester NY? & virtually none in NYC?

What a shame they are so hard to find.


Brittany December 6, 2012 at 2:03 am

The reason my list is long for Rochester is due to the fact that I live there :) SO I know all the progressive one’s in my area. I’m sure there are many great ones in NY!


Lynne December 7, 2012 at 11:18 pm

Dr to add to your list for treating Thyroid, Diabetes, etc issues:
Dr. Stephanie Chaney, D.C. & Dr. Tom Chaney, D.C.
Living Health Chiropractic and Functional Medicine
1833 Forest Drive
Annapolis MD 21401

I also went thru MANY doctors to find out what ailed me. I also have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis & went undiagnosed for years. When I was finally diagnosed I was only being treated for the hypothyroidism & not for any of the other problems – many you mention. Dr Steph has changed my life. I am still healing but am well on my way to getting my life back. I travel 50 miles to her office, but it is WELL WORTH IT! They utilize Dr. Kharrazian’s teachings.

dr.jennifer walker at in health clinic in los gatos,ca
dr. renee young at young wellness center los gatos,ca

Bethany C. February 5, 2013 at 2:42 am

In Austin, TX I have 3 great doctors(and have seen some really crummy ones that make me testify to these 3 folks).

1. Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist- Dr. Nancy P. Matteer (Good listening skills, good response, answers questions and explains in ways you understand, is about the lifestyle change that combines diet, exercise, self-care and meds when you need them.)

2. Rheumatologist- Dr. Tina Bunch at Austin Regional Clinic (Another good listener who has actively partnered with my other doctors, is about the lifestyle change that combines diet, exercise, self-care and meds when you need them.)

3. General Practice- Dr. Sunita Swamy (She is very thorough, is accessible, has gone above and beyond giving recommendations and working to get me well by helping identify my issues and correlate my care)


Tiffany February 6, 2013 at 11:01 pm

I had been searching the Tulsa area for over two years for a doctor that could help me fix my digestive problems rather than just prescribe me an antacid and send me on my way. Dr. Jannell Zimmerman at Sowing Wellness helped me with that and helped me correct health problems that I didn’t even know were problems. She is a chiropractor but she addresses every area of health. She does nutrition consultations, workout sessions, and health classes. She is associated with Maximized Living,, and they have doctors all over that do those same things. Dr. Zimmerman’s info is:

4860 S Yale Ave
Tulsa, OK 74135


Sherrie L April 3, 2013 at 5:51 pm

Another spectacular Naturopathic LPN doc is Dr. Wendy Abraham in Portland, OR.
She helped me when allopathic (regular MDs) were making me very ill and my entire body shut down from adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, uncontrolled juvenile diabetes, PCOS, arthritis, and more. She is truly a holistic doctor, taking the time to get to know all of you & how your body is reacting to itself and the environment, and how to rebalance it so it can heal itself. She is fantastic.
Dr. Wendy Abraham, ND, LPN
Natural Pain Solutions
5125 SW Macadam Ave. #210
Portland, Oregon 97239
P: 503-684-9698
F: 503-213-9698


Maggie grant April 26, 2013 at 5:13 pm

I highly suggest the Center for Integrative Medicine at Kernan Hospital in Baltimore, MD. They helped me, a really sick 20 year old, figure out what was wrong with me and help start my healing process. They are integrative, so have dietitians, psychologists, acupuncturists, PCPs, and more. I was not given prescriptions and was talked to in a way I understood. If you live in the area, check them out. Dr. Gavrila and Dr. richter are the PCPs I have seen there.


Sara Castillo May 26, 2013 at 6:05 am

Does anyone have a reco for good doctors to diagnose and treat autoimmune disorders in the Dallas/Fort Worth area?


Julia August 20, 2013 at 1:39 am

Missouri –
Dr. Tracy Fritz

Virginia/Washington DC area:
Dr. Mandana Shafai (Arlington, VA)

These two women have been my doctors – Dr. Fritz when I lived in St. Louis, and now Dr. Shafai. They are both medical doctors, but also very knowledgeable and experienced in treating holistically, and know which tests to run for gut issues! Please add them to the list!


Elizabeth October 3, 2013 at 7:11 pm

Does anyone know of a good doctor to treat hashimoto’s/hypothyroidism in the chicago, preferably lakeview area? I’d love a recommendation from someone who has actually seen one of these doctors and had success.



Diane October 9, 2013 at 12:38 am

I noticed you have a Wisconsin doctor under the Florida heading…might want to fix that.

Thanks for compiling this list! It’s extremely helpful. People are desperate to find a doctor who really knows how to help them.


Gina October 19, 2013 at 5:10 pm
