About Dr. Robin Terranella and Dr. Christy Cline
Robin Terannella, N.M.D.
As a Phoenix Bioidentical Hormones Specialist and naturopathic medical doctor, Dr. Terranella’s training and experiences in both conventional and alternative medical clinics taught him the value of integrative care. He understands the effectiveness and usefulness of combining eastern and western medicine and brings his holistic approach to the Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale Metro Area.
During his medical training at Bastyr University, Dr. Terranella gravitated toward western medicine’s evidence-based methods. However, his internships in conventional medical clinics confirmed the importance of personalized medicine. The doctor patient relationship sets the stage to treat the whole person.
Precise accurate diagnosis and treatment are great, but as a Phoenix Bioidentical Hormones Specialist, Dr. Terranella knows the doctor patient relationship sets the atmosphere to treat the whole person.
Dr. Terranella believes that the spiritual and mental aspects of our being are best treated and supported through the wisdom of Eastern Medicine. His training in acupuncture at Wu Hsing Tao School helped him to understand and appreciate these non-physical dimensions of the person.
I truly enjoy guiding people to make better health decisions and create healthier lifestyle through offering straightforward, informed, and unbiased health advice.
