I have been seeing Dr. Reese for 10 years. When I first visited I was tired grumpy and had General malaise. I was put on bioidentical hormones and a Thyroid supplement. I felt better within a couple of weeks 🙂 I do take a lot of supplements, but at 66 years old I am healthy, happy and energetic. Dr. Reese helps me stay that way! Febe, their phlebotomist is also excellent. Others often have a hard time finding my vein, but she gets it every time with no pain.

I have been seeing Dr. Hilewitz for over a year now and she is the ONLY Doctor who actually LISTENS and CARES!!! She is truly a Godsend!

I have been sick on and off for 18 years; with the last 3 years being some of the worst. She spends a great deal of time with me to ensure that we go over every symptom, each test result and explains every treatment (supplements, IV’s, saunas, diet, acupuncture, physical therapy, etc.). She looks at my body and mind as a whole instead of specialists who only look at one particular part of my body and don’t look at me in my entirety or my GP who only wants to see me if I have a cold or a flu.

Together we have finally pieced together each component of why I am so sick. It hasn’t been an easy or quick road and to be honest she tells me things that I don’t want to hear like avoid sugar, gluten, dairy, etc. or do a candida cleanse (food has always been my biggest struggle on the journey to health) but she knows that all “autoimmunity” starts in the gut so she started there and is healing me from the inside out.

She takes me seriously and doesn’t get a bruised ego when I bring information or research on a certain diagnosis or symptom. She is insanely smart but also open minded! She pulls from her vast knowledge and couples that with my requests, abilities and budget to come up with a customized NATURAL treatment plan just for me. She always goes above and beyond and is the one of the most kind-hearted people I have ever met. I am beyond grateful for finding her and I refer all of my friends to her. She is the BEST Doctor I have EVER seen and that is saying a lot considering all of the Doctors I’ve seen all over the country in the last 18 years.

I also REALLY enjoy the office staff. Fernando is very calming and nurturing. He helps with the sauna, IV’s and shots and is just so pleasant to be around. Tina and Liz are on it with emails and they make it very easy to schedule and they are always friendly when I’m there.

Though I’ve only started at LotusRain in August 2013, the past 4+ months have been a whole new look at how well medicine can be done. I’ve tried a variety of MDs, including “integrative” MDs, who haven’t provided anywhere near the level of care I’ve received from Dr. Reese & her clinic. Never before have I met an office or doctor that is as thoroughly competent, well-researched, intuitive, and competent as here.

The reviews from 2 or 3 years ago don’t reflect my experience at all. The communication from this office has been helpful and reliable. My emails are answered quickly, and even special questions are researched (like the specific source of ingredients for a multivitamin that requires the doctor’s office, and not patients, to inquire) and special instructions (let’s say I skipped a dose, etc., to see what Dr. Reese recommends I do) are delivered. The people operating the front desk are warm, welcoming, and adept, just like Dr. Reese.

Every time I go to LotusRain I look forward to it as a positive experience & as an inspiration to keep working towards natural, fulfilling, optimal health. Just yesterday I bought a package of visits, so I’m definitely in it for the long haul with this clinic, and that’s not a commitment I take lightly. Additionally, Dr. Reese referred me to Steve Mettner for Rolfing, which has been a truly impactful experience that’s dealt with bodily problems beyond what massage, acupuncture, and chiropractic have done.

So, in sum, this is a fantastic place to get naturopathic care and get better.

I was going through Hashimotos auto immune and was in great shock when I came to know and had no hope that I would be able to recover completely as per my MD who asked me to take medication for rest of my life. I didn’t want to go that path and was looking for different ways. My friend recommended Dr Reese and with faith I visited her and she took me through the journey and less than 6 months’ time I am back to normal with no more auto immune condition and no other health issues. Thank you for being very patient with me and helping me out through the tough time. Thanks for the complete suggestions in terms of food intake, the natural resources to heal myself and preparing me for the best. I am grateful for Dr Reese presence in my life to overcome my health challenge smoothly. The people in lotus rain are very sweet and friendly/caring as well. I do recommend their services more importantly have faith. Thank you Dr Reese for accepting me as your patient and guiding me and patiently answering my questions even without an appointment over phone and giving me the confidence. Over all I have great experience at Lotus Rain and grateful for their help and support in my journey. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Dr. Reese has been wonderful to deal with. Her caring and nurturing nature really comes through. My wife has had a terrific experience and is finally getting her health challenges on track – something that conventional medical doctors have been unable to do for many years, aside from the usual piles of chemical drug prescriptions. She was extremely responsive and accommodating during a cancer scare we went through over the holidays and put in place a clear and reasonable plan to address the situation.
We love Dr. Reese and would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.

Lotus Rain has helped me improve my health to great levels. They truly helped me understand the cause behind my not-so-fun symptoms and taught me what to do to change/improve my situation. Everyone in the office is so nice and responsive and for the health/medical industry, I believe truly care about their patients. I was referred to this clinic by 2 good friends of mine and would highly recommend trying their approach to health to my friends and family!

This is a statement from my father: I am currently a patient of Dr. Hilewitz at Lotus Rain naturopathic clinic for a beginning of prostate cancer. I first heard Donna Pinto on an interview for KPBS. The interview was full of rich information so I looked further into her website where she presented even more studies and knowledge about cancer. Donna made it very clear and easy to understand what I should put in my body and what I should not. Donna recommended Dr. Reese and her clinic. After looking over all this information, I felt very comfortable and motivated to visit a place like Lotus Rain where they encourage healthy lifestyle changes. I have begun treatment at their clinic and so far am feeling good and happy. I will post later with updates. Thank you Donna Pinto and Dr. Hilewitz!

Dr. Resee is such an angel, Unfortunately, I moved out of San Diego however when I have a question about supplements and or holistic therapies I know I can count on Dr. Resse to get the best advice over the phone or by email. She is very knowledgable about nutrition and will recommend you the best holistic treatment and supplements that you need in order to overcome any disease. I recommend her services to everyone.

As a patient, I take responsibility for my health and see Dr Reese regularly to support my own efforts. We work together as a team which is more helpful for me than looking to her for all the answers. I believe we have forgotten how to listen and trust our bodies so we look to doctors to tell us what to do and cure us. i am not sure how that expectation is helpful for her or me.

Dr Reese’s kindness and guidance have been remarkable and beneficial. Her prices on suggested supplements are standard and again, these are suggestions that I can choose to accept or not. The times when I have emailed or called with questions, I have always gotten a response.

Dr Reese has a tremendous amount of knowledge, she listens attentively when we meet and I trust that when she reads my blood test, that that knowledge and view of seeing my body as a whole has benefitted me.

What happens with Dr Reese is healing and depending on where you are, that could take some time. Your head and heart have to join the rest of the body in the beautiful journey to good health or at least enjoy a supported journey when good health is not available.

Dr. Reese is intuitive and spends the necessary time with you to do a complete analysis. This is something that is truly missed in the current medical system. She is available by phone and email when you have an urgent/pressing question. With many years of experience she even provides guidance for new NDs. Highly recommend visiting Dr. Reese for any complications you are facing or just for an overall wellness and general improvement.

As a former pro athlete I take good care of my body and that means eating clean and good proactive strategy to keeping my body in good shape. LotusRain Naturopathic Clinic and Dr. Reese have helped me a lot . I don’t believe in using pharmaceuticals of any kind, prescribed or over the counter, unless its absolutely necessary and LotusRain Clinic has been a great trusted resource for various supplements that I require. I use IV therapy for various reasons and have found the staff and clinic top notch. I guess the one thing that I like above all is the calm environment at LotusRain Clinic. I am not tense like a typical medical office, it’s very clean and uplifting and does not have an “institutional” feeling , the staff is attentive and friendly. The staff and Dr. Reese always go above and beyond to make sure I am comfortable when I come in for an appointment. If you have been frustrated with doctors and you are looking for a doctor staff that will really listen to you and not treat you like a “number” and really care about your health then your search is over.

Dr. Reese is wonderful.  It’s upsetting to see a couple poor reviews on here as my experiences have been outstanding.  I have always been treated fairly and respectfully by Dr. Reese and her staff, even in a busy clinic with multiple health practitioners helping many patients.  Her supplements are priced well – generally they are quite competitive with online wholesale distributors.  Her in-house treatments are also priced fairly when compared to other naturopathic doctors.  All in all, 5 stars is VERY deserving.  Thanks Dr. Reese, I’m feeling great!

I have been seeing Dr Reese for the past year. My hormones are balanced now, my diet forever changed and I am taking supplements that make
sense for me. I have lost weight and feel better than I have in years. The best part is that I have a doctor that treats me as a whole person rather than a body part. Dr Reese is brilliant and kind and she is my primary care doctor. I started with a free 30 minute consult and have never looked back. Cheers to your health!

I have HAD it with tradition medicine’s you feel the same…stop right now and see Dr. Reese. I was being put on 2 more medications for borderline high cholesterol and blood sugar. I was already on 4 meds for menopause symptoms. One to counteract the other side effects. My MD. gave me so much Ibuprofen after multiple hand surgeries, I ended up in Urgent care with PANCREATITIS! That was it, I saw Dr. Reese and within 3 month I was off ALL of my MEDICATIONS, feeling amazing, sleeping well, all while taking natural supplements. DO NOT believe that your MD. knows what they are giving you…they are guided by the Pharmaceutical companies and do not take the time to learn what they need to keep YOU in preventative health…Dr. Reese has given me my dignity, hope & my health back! I tell everyone I know about her gentle demeanor, kind heart and mostly her love for PREVENTATIVE Health care Knowledge. I put my x-husband through USC Medical School, I never understood the value of Naturopathic medicine until I met Dr. Reese. Traditional M.D.’s don’t learn nutrition, pharmaceuticals or preventative medicine. They learn to diagnose & treat diseases with Pharmaceuticals. We need to WAKE UP & take a look at the real reason for our health issues…diet, exercise & STRESS! Dr. Reese will listen, treat & guide you towards your overall health. Mental, Spiritual & Physical…it’s all attached…She is a Godsend…I feel so blessed to have HER as my partner in Health care!

It is long overdue that I write a yelp review for Lotus Rain! I have been a patient of Dr Reese for about 2 years. Since then my health (and life) has changed completely for the better! I came to Dr Reese at the “end of my rope”. Suffice it to Say my bad days were outnumbering my good days. And when I say good I mean “functional”. I was not living i was just barely surviving.

During the first few moments of my visit with Dr Reese, I had received something I hadn’t known in a long time: HOPE. From the very first complimentary appointment, and every one since, Dr Reese has been the most patient Dr I have ever experienced. If you call Dr Reese she calls you back, if you email her, she emails you back. She explains everything, and if you forget, she happily explains it again. I feel so blessed to have found a Dr that cares so much about me.

I will never be able to thank her enough.
