As a classic Bastyr trained Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Sundene will perform a comprehensive new patient history, review of systems, physical exam and laboratory evaluation in order to develop a customized protocol for each family member. Dr. Sundene enjoys taking time to get to know each patient individually and is passionate about teaching patients prevention through healthy diet and lifestyle. She attained her medical degree from the #1 ranked medical school in the world for Naturopathic Medicine, Bastyr University. Dr. Jane Guiltinan, Bastyr Dean of Students, rated her as "One of the Top Ten Students of the 2007 Graduating Class." She completed a two year internship in Naturopathic Gynecology and Urology and enjoys helping women with related complaints due to the efficacy of natural treatments for these conditions. She trained directly with Bastyr University's top Gynecology instructors and Master Herbalists specializing in Women's Health.
In addition to her medical school training, she spent eight years working at an award winning hospital. Dr. Sundene is proud to have had the opportunity to train directly with the many talented Family Physicians, Internists and Pediatricians she assisted. She combines this experience to offer her patients the most comprehensive treatment options from both conventional and holistic perspectives. She has vast experience safely combing natural medicines with prescription drugs as well as tapering patients off medications gradually when they prefer to use only natural medicines or can no longer tolerate prescription drugs.
Dr. Sundene is committed to practicing science based natural medicine and continuously is researching medical literature and applying her findings to naturopathic healing philosophies. She takes a practical and conservative approach to medicine and works diligently to keep her patients on the least amount of prescription medications possible.
Dr. Sundene believes the safest approach to hormone replacement therapy is to use the least amount of bioidentical hormones needed to control symptoms while addressing the underlying causes of hormonal imbalance with herbs and nutrition to improve the patient's quality and quantity of life.
Dr. Sundene especially enjoys the research involved in treating complex cases and providing chronic disease management with natural therapeutics. She is a professional member of the the Arizona Naturopathic Medical Association and the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians frequently attending their continuing education programs as well as seminars on gynecology and hormone replacement therapy.
