Dr. Bruce Fong was introduced to natural medicine and homeopathic medicine as a young child and continues with that tradition today. He has followed in the family footsteps of medicine and is rooted in the belief that we must heal and prevent human disease and suffering. Optimal health may be achieved by determining and remedying the root cause of illness.
Dr. Fong has been at the forefront of alternative therapies for immune-related diseases, including special treatment plans which combine the best options from a broad array of homeopathic, internal, Chinese, and traditional medicine.
As Medical Director at Sierra Integrative Medical Center, Dr. Fong is focused on solving root causes, not treating symptoms or masking issues falsely with compounded prescriptions.

"I am incredibly grateful for Dr. Fong and the entire team at Sierra Integrative Medical Center for helping me get my life back. After 10 years of searching for answers, and being dismissed by countless doctors, Dr. Fong took the time to really review my story and was the first doctor to see me, believe me, and help me get a diagnosis. I had been battling Lyme disease and co-infections for a long time and had no idea. Dr. Fong helped me understand what was going on in my body and developed a specific treatment plan for me to do during my time at Sierra. We worked hard to detox my body as well as kill the bacteria, and I began to feel what it was like again to be healthy. A feeling I didn’t know was even possible at that point. When you’ve been sick for so long, you learn to live with the symptoms, but Dr. Fong showed me that you CAN get better and have symptom free days again! Everyone is different, and therefore it’s important to work with a doctor who is willing to work with your specific case and not generalize you and your story. That’s why I’m so glad I found Dr. Fong. Working with Dr. Fong was the first step on my journey back to health, and I owe a substantial amount of my healing to my time at Sierra. Thank you, Dr. Fong, for everything!"
