Meet Dr. Cresencia Felty
During her four years of training, she received the standard medical curriculum that includes basic sciences, emergency medicine, radiology, minor surgery, and pharmacology. She extensively studied anatomy by dissecting a human cadaver. Along with basic sciences, she studied non-invasive approaches to healing such as clinical nutrition, homeopathy, botanical medicine, hydrotherapy, intravenous therapy, homeopathy, oriental medicine, holistic counseling, and physical medicine.
She completed a family medicine internship at NUHS's Whole Health Center and Clinic that helped her hone her skills of being a clinician, teacher, and healer. The internship focused on drug-free and surgery-free approaches to improving acute and chronic medical conditions.

Along with her medical education, Dr. Felty is trained in holistic counseling, mind body medicine such as somatic experiencing, and functional medicine.
