Meet Dr. Raquel Espinol
Dr. Raquel Espinol NMD is an Arizona licensed Naturopathic Medical Doctor who graduated with honors and received her doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM). She enjoys working with men and women addressing thyroid conditions, hormone imbalances, weight loss and fertility.
As a young child growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dr. Espinol was inspired by science and nature which led her to earn her Bachelors of Science in Biology from Santa Clara University, with a pre-medical emphasis. After college, she struggled with her own thyroid condition which was not successfully managed until she discovered naturopathic medicine and worked with a naturopath. This first-hand success inspired her to pursue a career in naturopathic medicine.
