I have to write a review for anyone that might need a pediatric or adult neurologist down the line because I am so incredibly impressed by our visit with Dr. Azzolino in SF, at Azzolino Chiropractic neurology and Integrative Wellness. My son has developmental delays and some muscle weaknesses that have been attributed to neurological abnormalities. We had been to a traditional neurologist at Stanford, only to be told the only option was an MRI.

Seeing this office online, I thought I’d give them a try before doing the MRI next summer. I am soo incredibly impressed at how pro-active Dr. Azzolino is. He gets the whole picture, not just the symptoms. And provided things I can do already to improve my son’s condition, from ipad apps, to spinning, to specific exercises, to testing all from a more functional medicine standpoint.

Mind you we are already doing physical therapy and speech therapy, but I was so impressed with the comprehensiveness of this neurologist compared to the traditional western medicine one. After leaving Stanford, I just kept thinking, there has to be something more I can do to improve my son’s condition, from nutrition to exercises, etc. And boy was I right. Visiting Dr. Azzolino was exactly what I was looking for. A doctor that would look at his symptoms from a medical, nutritional, and functional standpoint.

I have had severe problems with vertigo, general dizziness and lack of balance for over a year. Luckily, I found Dr. Azzolino’s group. It’s hard to express just how much better my life is now that the whole world isn’t constantly spinning around…

Naturopathic Medicine

A naturopathic doctor is a primary-care doctor trained in integrative medicine. Doctors of naturopathic medicine treat many of the same complaints medical doctors do—acute conditions, long-term illness, pain, and injury—however, naturopathic medicine takes a holistic approach. Trained to work in conjunction with acupuncturists, chiropractors, medical doctors, and therapists, naturopaths offer patients safe, complementary care that’s integrated into a treatment plan that considers the broader issues contributing to a patient’s health.

Naturopathic medicine incorporates the following:

  • Drug-free remedies such as herbs and supplements
  • Lifestyle and nutritional counseling
  • Personalized detoxification and cleansing protocols
  • Bioidentical hormones
  • A mind- body approach
  • Detailed genomic analysis
  • Intravenous nutritional therapy
  • Prescription medication when necessary.
