Dr. Discepola is the Medical Director at the renowned Hipppocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida. She formerly practiced Functional Medicine in New York City, and Westchester County, New York for over 15 years.
She is a native New Yorker and a Graduate of the UAG Medical University in 1988.
After completing a residency and board-certification in Emergency Medicine, she practiced full-time Emergency Medicine until 2006.
Her own personal health struggles allowed the doctor to explore many alternative healing modalities. It wasn’t until her daughter was born with a serious congenital cardiac condition that Dr. Discepola was able to truly experience the healing power of acupuncture, cranial-sacral manipulation, and dietary manipulation. As her personal journey in holism evolved, so did her medical practice.

She is an active member of The American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM), American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), and the American Academy of Integrative Holistic Medicine (AAIHM).
