about dr. rachel
Bringing humanity back to healthcare.
Dr. Rachel Hesselbrock, NMD started off her epic journey to medical school by spending too many years in her undergraduate at ASU. She switched majors 4 times, from nursing to EMT, to firefighter, to finally dietetics, where she fell in love with learning what happens to food once it's eaten. She (finally) graduated with a BS in Dietetics from Arizona State University and spent the next 3 years not having a clue what to do with herself. She got a position at a job (that will remain nameless) which helped people to lose weight. Folks, this is where the magic happened. Working for this nameless company she realized that you can't take different people, put them into the same box, and expect that they will have the same result when it comes to their health. It just isn't possible. She knew she could do things differently, and help people get the results they were looking for without having to stick to a certain protocol.
As if some higher power had been listening, she found a post on Facebook made my an old college mate (who is now her best friend) about the medical school that she had just been accepted to. The rest in history.
Dr. Rachel graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. She is a licensed Naturopathic Physician, whose one goal in life is to make sure everyone around her is feeling the best they can, in whatever way that means.
Dr. Rachel can be described as a loyal, determined and caring individual. She looks out for the best in people and strives to help them reach heights they once thought they couldn’t attain. She seeks to alleviate the distress people encounter in their everyday lives via an attentive ear and providing ample time for you to tell your story. She is committed to knowing her patients, who they are, and their journey in life so far. She believes that a happy life is essential for anyone who seeks to be the best they can be.
Dr. Rachel enjoys seeing all types of patients, especially those that feel as though there is no hope for their medical ailments (she's been there, she gets it). She has many skills and continually explores and researches new treatments and protocols, which allows her to be flexible in her care and gives each patient the treatment that is most specific and beneficial to them. Her passions in medicine are minor surgical procedures (such as ingrown toenail removals (nail avulsion), lipoma/cyst/abscess removal, and skin tag/mole removal), working with patients who suffer from autoimmune disease (Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Sjogren’s, Scleroderma, etc.), and most importantly those patients that just need someone to talk to.
Dr. Rachel enjoys volunteering with medical missions, especially in Africa as she is fascinated by its lustrous beauty, resources, and people. Her Hobbies include sand volleyball, relaxing with her two pups and watching enlightening programs on how the Universe works and the science behind it. She loves meeting new people and the joy of connecting with them while eating a nice meal.
