Meet Our Care Team

Susan Saccomanno, ND, LAc

Dr. Susan Saccomanno has a decade of experience as a family physician with a specialty in holistic cancer care and chronic illness.  She has been practicing at the Mederi Center since 2014, where she blends the best of naturopathic and Chinese traditions. Susan received her Naturopathic Doctorate and Master of Oriental Medicine degrees from National College of Natural Medicine and extended her studies in integrative cancer care in Mederi Care (ETMS), founded and taught by Donnie Yance.

Dr. Susan was drawn to the Mederi Care model, because it offers an elegant way to treat the whole person, the person's microenvironment, and if applicable, the tumor microenvironment. The Mederi Care model, which relies on the art of botanical medicine as well as impeccable clinical care, helps her organize her treatment plan to ensure that all aspects of health and illness are addressed.

She became a doctor because of her passion for helping people achieve vibrant health. She understands that untangling the mass of information that confronts patients can be confusing and strives to create a comprehensive strategy tailored to each person’s unique needs, while emphasizing a plan that is manageable and helps her patients to feel better.

“I believe that delivering this alternative model that incorporates botanical medicine with highly individualized medical care is meeting a huge need in oncology today.”  -Dr. Susan Saccomanno

She has deep faith in the healing and regenerative powers of natural therapeutics, which play a central role in her treatment plans. At the same time, Dr. Susan designs treatment plans that enhance mainstream therapies, with the goal of minimizing side effects and preventing future occurrences.

Being a primary care physician means Dr. Susan can help unravel complex health issues and support patients in creating positive, long-term changes in health. In addition to her work in integrative cancer care, she has a decade of experience treating acute and chronic illnesses such as:

  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
