Sarah Anne Rothman, ND-Naturopathic Doctor

Dr. Sarah Anne Rothman is Coastside’s first Naturopathic Doctor. Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system that combines traditional healing wisdom with modern scientific research to offer a holistic, safe and gentle approach to health care. It is the art and science of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease using natural therapies with a focus on optimizing health and well being through education and individual approach. 

Dr. Rothman sees everyone from pediatrics to geriatrics and treats a wide array of health conditions both acute and chronic. Her assessment involves a 1.5-2 hour initial visit where she focuses on finding the underlying cause of illness rather than treating the symptoms. She believes it is her duty to spend adequate time with you and to listen, educate and tailor each visit according to your needs. She loves to work with your other health care practitioners to  provide you with  well rounded, collaborative care.  She believes strongly in the power of food as medicine, the healing potential of herbs and nutrients and strives to make your healing journey fun, educational and sustainable.

She provides full screening physicals, female exams, and a variety of lab tests through her clinic including salivary and serum hormone testing, food allergy testing, and several metabolic screening tests. She holds a strong interest in hormonal balance, fertility, menopause, thyroid and metabolic function, children’s health, and happy digestion.  She also does a lot of work with cardiovascular health, diabetes, immune function and weight management. She offers a wide array of therapies including clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, exercise and lifestyle counseling, bio-identical hormone therapy, homeopathy, bio-therapeutic drainage and hydrotherapy. 
Her clinical experience ranges from community HIV, pediatric and women’s health clinics to hospitals abroad in countries such as Bolivia and Kenya. She holds a California and British Columbia Naturopathic Doctor’s license, is a Certified WTS physician. She lives in Pacifica with her husband and her dog and is thrilled to be working in the wonderful Coastside community!!
