Dr. Kristin Kalmbacher
I was born in Pennsylvania and grew up in rural, central Florida. In 1991, I moved to New Orleans and received a Medical Degree as well as a Masters of Public Health and Tropical Medicine from Tulane. After this, I completed a family practice residency and public health service obligation in Savannah, Georgia. After four years, I became dissatisfied with the scope of traditional western medicine and sought to expand my skills by becoming certified in the practice of acupuncture and Ayurvedic medicine. In 2003, I moved to northern California to attend a doctoral program at California Institute of Integral Studies. My goal was to develop a better understanding of why illness could be a revolutionary transformation for some and a hopeless abyss for others. Understandably, I wanted to be able to guide my patients into the former route. In 2013 I completed a medical fellowship in anti-aging and regenerative medicine through the University of South Florida's medical school. My most recent accomplishment was receiving my certification and graduating from Functional Medicine University in 2018.
I am concerned about my patients who have no time to be sick and no time to live a healthy lifestyle. I equip my patients with everything they need to live life to its full potential. I emphasize the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle and the informed use of vitamins and nutraceuticals (non-pharmacologic supplements).
