My experience with this doctor is one of those rare times where I felt seen and heard. Dr. Vollen took her time getting to know me and learn about my medical conditions. She is extremely knowledgeable about how to best use cannabis to relieve pain and encourage the body to heal. Her office is awesome! Its located on Solano Ave in Berkeley and I felt welcomed and safe in this environment.
My husband has metastatic prostate cancer and congestive heart failure. After radiation treatments, he struggled with nausea, pain, anxiety and other side effects for six months before we found help at Naturally Healing MD. The doctor took time to understand my husband's history and his individual approach to pain management, and worked with him to maximize reduction of nausea and pain. We feel very fortunate to have received this compassionate care..

THis is the third time I have seen this doctor and each time I feel like she is really interested in my well being. I have been using cannabis to treat my migraines and although I have Kaiser, I have never had a physician who wants to help me get off of pain medications and control my symptoms with cannabis. But finally I have one who has helped wean me off of narcotics and I am now completely off. SHe takes the time to hear what is important to me and gives me more than a recommendation. She gives me sound advice on healing through diet, exercise, and preventive measures. Her rates are reasonable and she is conveniently located if you live in the Berkeley area, like me. I really felt cared for and respected. Thank YOU!
