Her training in Eastern medicine started while living in Asia where she studied Tibetan Medicine during her last year of undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin- Madison.

Dr. Robin Terranella
Dr. Robin Terranella has extensive training and experience treating weight related health conditions using a wide ranging treatment options. From very early in his training, he took a special interest in weight related health conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. He believes that focusing on the controllable factors like weight loss and lifestyle are the cornerstones to effective treatment. Sometimes balancing hormones is all that is needed to kick in the metabolism and spur additional weight loss.
As a naturopathic medical doctor, he has learned the value of integrative medical care and weight loss as a cornerstone of treating many health conditions.
In my medical training at Bastyr University, I had a gravitation toward western medicine’s evidence based methods. However, my internships in conventional medical clinics confirmed the importance of personalized medicine. The doctor patient relationship sets the stage to treat the whole person..
With weight loss the importance of the doctor patient relationship is just as important. Whether we are using HCG diet, vitamin injections, or treating a weight related health condition trust is important, and that is why the relationship is so important to him.
