Dolores FazzinoRecovering Healthcare
Dr. Dolores Fazzino (Doctor of Nursing Practice) is a distinguished pioneer disrupting the healthcare industry by bridging the world of spirituality and wellness. With nearly 4 decades of nursing experience, she has assisted in approximately 9000 surgeries.
Her experience comes while working under the revolutionary international expert in the field of cancer treatment and complementary, holistic medicine and surgeon, Dr. Bernie Siegel. Dr. Dolores Fazzino was also the first to successfully introduce the concept of Nurse Practitioners and Physician’s Assistants assisting surgeons in San Diego County at Scripps Memorial Hospitals (Encinitas, La Jolla and Mercy), Tri City Medical Center and Palomar Medical Center; a concept that is now an accepted practice nationwide.
Entrusted as a surgeon’s right hand on complex procedures, Dolores has worked in the specialties of neurosurgery, orthopedics, urology and gynecology using minimally invasive and robotic techniques. Always a visionary, she founded a company called Prepare Me 4 Surgery, now included as the Concierge Surgical Coaching Program within Recovering Healthcare, to offer enhanced preparations to patients prior to surgery employing complementary and alternative therapies. This kind of preparation is now commonly accepted as an adjunct to traditional surgery preparation today.
Dr. Dolores Fazzino trained at the prestigious Yale New Haven Hospital and Children’s Hospital, Philadelphia. She earned a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree in 2008 from Case Western Reserve University, one of the top nursing programs in the nation. Again on the cutting edge, she now takes us beyond the mind-body paradigm to reconnect the compassionate connection in healthcare through the 2 companies she has founded.
