Dr. Dominique Vonador, DOM, LAc is a NCCAOM Board Certified Acupuncture Physician, graduating from East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, FL. She is a self-motivated and multi-tasked Master Degreed Acupuncture Professional with extensive applied medical training and industry exposure in Traditional Chinese Medical Theory. She has demonstrated a history of successful patient care and treatment administration while formulating pragmatic and effective solutions in critical and fast paced environments.
Dr. Vonador likes to think of herself as being athletic; waking at 5:30 in the morning to run 2 miles and then end with a little weight lifting is an average Monday morning for her. She ran track and field in college at Florida State University, graduating with her Bachelor's degree in Biology. While working at the local hospital, she became distraught at the level of care the patients received, with medication allotments being the major course of treatment. From then on she knew there had to be an adjunctive therapy treatment option that was less painful, easy for the patient, but very efficient. Acupuncture proved to be the answer. Now, here she is 5 years later, continuously making a difference in the community with Oriental Medicine.
Dr. Vonador's husband of 4 years and their 3 year old son are her main driving force with God as the head. Without any of them, she does not believe she would be the woman she is today.
