Dr. Kimberly Sanders, ND

       Dr. Kimberly Sanders is a licensed Naturopathic Physician in Milford, Connecticut and Associate Professor of Clinical Sciences at the University of Bridgeport where she teaches Physical and Laboratory Diagnosis, Physical Examination, Biochemistry, Nutrition, and Research courses.  She graduated from the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine summa cum laude as co-valedictorian of her class and as the recipient of the Academic Excellence award.  She also graduated from one of the very few CNME-accredited Residency Positions in Naturopathic Medicine at the University of Bridgeport.  She participated in the international ZRT Cup Competition as a medical student and was named Most Valuable Player all three years that she played.  She completed her undergraduate studies at Fordham University's Honor's Program and graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Sciences.  

       Dr. Kimberly Sanders has undergone extensive pediatric and rheumatology training during her time at the University of Bridgeport, and she has lectured on the topic of Autoimmunity and Autism at the annual CNPA and NHAND naturopathic conferences. She believes that many autoimmune diseases stem for neurotransmitter and hormonal dysfunction, and she is certified in NeuroEndoImmunology (NEI).

       Her passion in practice is finding the underlying causes of immune dysfunction and restoring balance to the immune system with naturopathic and functional medicine.  


Dr. Frank LaRosa, ND, MSAc

          Dr. Frank LaRosa is a licensed Naturopathic Physician in Milford, Connecticut. He also holds a Master's Degree in Acupuncture.  He is involved in the clinical development of naturopathic medical students at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine.  

          Dr. Frank LaRosa graduated from the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine as the recipient of the Community Service Excellence award and from the Acupuncture Institute as the recipient of the Dean's Choice award.  He completed residency training in Wallingford, CT before entering private practice.  

          Dr. LaRosa is an expert specialist in autoimmune disease and natural pain management solutions.  He has a unique approach to pain, utilizing botanical medicine, acupuncture, tui na massage, and nutritional counseling for non-toxic, drug-free pain relief. He is also an expert in identifying and treating the underlying causes of immune dysfunction. His expertise in acupuncture helps patients receive fast-acting pain relief leaving the office, while his botanical and nutritional expertise ensures long-term pain management and immune regulation that is sustainable for years.  Dr. LaRosa also utilizes needleless acupuncture and massage, for those who prefer a needleless approach.

          As an autoimmune specialist, Dr. LaRosa also has a special interest in helping autoimmune and arthritis patients achieve optimal nutrition and weight loss.  Weight loss is one of the most significant ways to reduce arthritis pain and reduce autoimmunity, and Dr. LaRosa's unique approach can help achieve sustainable weight loss, while both reducing body fat percentage and increasing muscle mass and strength, thus reducing pain.
