A holistic practitioner, wife, and mommy to her three kiddos, Dr. Patane's days are both wonderfully and intentionally full as she embraces the honesty of juggling family life, adventure, and her life purpose: to educate, serve, and bring hope to those on their own personal journey to optimal health. 

She possesses a love for life, tremendous passion for helping others, and is a strong believer in the power of positive thinking and intentional living. Outside of the office, Andrea enjoys family adventures, exploring the National and State parks, beaches, photography, reading, yoga, snuggling her babies (both the human ones and furry ones), camping by the coast, and family dinners.

As native Northern Californians, and local rice and walnut farmers, my husband and I are thrilled to both own businesses in our community. Having fulfilled our shared dream of raising our family near our parents, siblings and lifelong friends we feel blessed. Becoming a doctor was in my blood and has been my intention since the age of 4. After experiencing my own chronic health issues in my twenties, I discovered natural medicine and for the first time was introduced to true health. Alternative health care became my obvious path, eventually leading me to pursue the field of Chiropractic, to practice as a Functional Health Practitioner.

In latin, "doctor" means "teacher" and it is said that we teach best what we most need to learn. I am passionate about helping families overcome chronic health conditions, autoimmune disease, and preventing illness from developing in the first place because I, too, have been in those shoes. My goal is for my patients to have the opportunity to live life to the fullest, and without health, everything else falls short.  I'm eager to listen to your full story, investigate your health, connecting  the dots as your Functional Health Practitioner, and working with you, as a team, to design your very own path to optimal health. 

In Health,
Dr. Andrea Patane
