I'm Dr. Francesca Medina
I am a Naturopathic Doctor practicing in North County San Diego, CA. I am passionate about women's reproductive and dermatologic health, and I empower women to have confidence in their bodies by teaching them about their hormones, nutrition, skin, and overall physical and mental wellbeing with holistic and functional medicine.
Located within The Adapt Lab clinic and Olympus Movement Performance, I work with my patients to find the root causes of hormonal and digestive symptoms by building a trusting doctor-patient relationship. I order extensive lab tests and formulate individualized treatment plans to address all facets of health.
The women I support need guidance with their fertility, hormones, nutrition, weight, skin, digestion, and everything in between. My patients often come to me after feeling as though their symptoms and concerns were being dismissed by their regular doctors. I try to cultivate an environment where every patient feels seen and heard-- where even the smallest concern is discussed and not dismissed.
If my philosophy of medicine resonates with you, I would be honored to have you has as patient.
Dr. Francesca works only with patients physically located in California.

What People are saying About Dr. Francesca
Valuable information. At 50, no one ever taught me about my body. And, even after having a child in my early 20s, having all my family in healthcare, I didn't even know where my cervix was or what check ups, exams I needed after a baby. I had to learn on my own and still learning and educating myself.
Thanks, Dr. Medina.
