Heather Scolaro, FNP-BC
Heather Scolaro FNP-BC is a board certified family nurse practitioner with experience in primary care, functional medicine and integrative care. She graduated with her advanced nursing education in 2017 from the University of Indianapolis as a Sigma Theta Tau International Honors Society member.
Integrative medicine is an approach to care that puts the patient at the center and addresses the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect a person’s health. Employing a personalized strategy that considers the patient’s unique conditions, needs and circumstances, it uses the most appropriate interventions from an array of scientific disciplines to heal illness and disease and help people regain and maintain optimum health. It is a partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process.
At Gonino Center for Healing, we believe that injured and damaged tissues in the human body are healed by nutrients not drugs and that when symptoms arise in the body the reason is secondary to one or more correctable imbalances and/or deficiencies. The body has a self-healing capacity and at its optimum level, its power supersedes conventional medicine.
As a physician, my passion is to educate and empower my patients with truth and inspiration.
I look forward to having a front row seat to your miracles!
V. John Gonino, D.O.
