“My deep respect for the individuality of my patients is the heart of my practice. The point is to carefully listen to each patient and correlate their subjective experience with pertinent objective laboratory tests, to determine unique treatment guidelines that allow the innate wisdom of the body to overcome illness and restore good health."

Excellence Is the Consistent Standard

As you read our physician and independent practitioner biographies you’ll find that excellence is the consistent standard at Gordon Medical Associates. We have decades of professional training and expertise, and we also continue to teach, write, and perform ongoing research.

Our patients come not only from Santa Rosa, the North Bay, and the greater San Francisco area, but the entire country and around the globe for individualized help with a wide range of problems, from chronic pain and hormone balancing to CFS/ME and Lyme disease.

"Functional and integrative medicine that is heart centered guides how I treat my patients with complex chronic illness. Each patient has unique contributing factors to their disease. Biochemical imbalances, epigenetic expression, toxin exposure, microbial exposure and emotional imbalance are often key in unraveling the mystery of and treating chronic illness."

Elizabeth Large ND by Maggie Perkins 2017
Elizabeth Large, N.D.
Independent Practitioner/Naturopathic Doctor
"I became a naturopathic doctor because I believe healing seeks the root cause of imbalance; that physical illness arises from a multitude of factors. Rarely does chronic illness arise from one cause but a perfect storm enabling illness to manifest. I look for the “core disturbance” in the body that is creating susceptibility to disease."

Balance in all things is a major component of our health and happiness. If there is balance between our external and internal environments health will occur naturally. This balance is not fixed but is constantly shifting, requiring a certain level of attentiveness from us. Doing just enough to achieve balance is all that is required. Thus, doing less can be more. Balance should also exist between physician and patient. When the communication is clear, honest, and compassionate, the process of healing is enhanced.

Researcher, Educator, Lecturer/Medical Doctor/Pediatrics/Independent Practitioner
Each of us has the divine gift for self-healing. But often the body’s attempts for realization of this principle is thwarted by infection, toxicants, emotional traumas and our own unique genetic make-up. It takes a broad palette as well a various team of artists to assist the person in their healing journey and many of us will play a role in restoring the original work of art.
