Naturopathic Medicine Team

Dr Joe Scarpuzzi PhotoDr. Joseph Scarpuzzi practices naturopathic medicine, which concentrates on whole-patient wellness; the medicine is tailored to each individual and emphasizes prevention. Naturopathic medicine aims to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment. It is ‘functional medicine’ a type of medical practice or treatments that focuses on optimal functioning of the body and it’s organs.

Dr. Scarpuzzi focuses on anti-aging medicine along with a comprehensive scope of therapies. These include natural aesthetics procedures for skin rejuvenation: (Platelet Rich Plasma Facial – aka PRP), vitamin nutrient shots for nourishment of body tissues, balancing of hormones naturally or through bioidenticals for men & women, optimization of gut health, as well as, general nutrition and fitness health. Helping patients to achieve optimal health is a fundamental component of his practice.

Dr. Scarpuzzi is a California State Licensed Naturopathic Doctor; with a degree from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. As an integrative primary care provider he is skilled in treating acute and chronic diseases. He frequently manages supplements/nutraceuticals, orders labs and imaging studies, performs therapies, refers to specialists if needed, and performs annual and preventative exams. His goal ideally is to optimize the patients health through prevention and education. However when chronic illness occurs he treats each patient as an individual using the wisdom of nature and modern science as a detective would to get to the root cause. His first choice is always to use the most safe and effective approach first while still achieving results.
