Sara Gottfried, MD

Sara Gottfried, MD is a board-certified gynecologist and physician scientist. Dr. Gottfried graduated from Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and completed residency at the University of California at San Francisco. Over the past two decades, she has seen more than 25,000 patients, and specializes in identifying the underlying causes of her patients’ conditions to achieve true and lasting health transformations: not solely symptom management. Dr. Gottfried is more likely to test her patient’s DNA and next generation biomarkers, and then prescribe a customized protocol—using primarily food (not drugs), in addition to other proven lifestyle interventions in order to optimize the gene/environment interface. It’s not one method fits all. It’s not disease-centered. It’s not “fix-’em-up-and-send-’em-home.” It’s a mission to transform healthcare, one patient at a time.

Dr. Gottfried is also a global keynote speaker who lectures on the practice of evidence-based, integrative, precision, and functional medicine. Her three New York Times bestselling books include: The Hormone Cure, The Hormone Reset Diet, and her latest: Brain Body Diet.
