Director of Naturopathic Medicine
Dr. Aliza Cicerone earned her Doctorate in naturopathic medicine (ND) from The National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR, and holds additional board certification in naturopathic oncology (FABNO). She completed an integrative oncology residency, where she did extensive training in cardiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, and dermatology, in addition to operating her own oncology practice. Dr. Cicerone believes a combination of conventional and naturopathic medicine is the key to achieving long-term health.
After her residency, Dr. Cicerone worked as a staff physician at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in conjunction with medical doctors, acupuncturists, dietitians, mind-body counselors and physical therapists to provide patients with comprehensive, integrative care. Dr. Cicerone believes that a combination of conventional and naturopathic medicine is the optimal way to give patients long-term health and wellness.
A California native, Dr. Cicerone moved back to the San Diego area in 2013 to bring personalized natural medicine to Southern California. She works with patients with a variety of health concerns, including thyroid abnormalities, hormone therapy, digestive disorders, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. A focal point of her practice is cancer treatment and survivorship, where she uses evidence-based natural therapy in combination with chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to minimize side effects, provide immune system support and reduce the risk of recurrence. Dr. Cicerone is a member of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association, the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the Society for Integrative Oncology.
