Testimonials


"While traveling in the US (from Australia) my 14 y.o. daughter required treatment for chronic anxiety and panic attacks, more severe than usual. I found SF Natural Medicine and got my daughter in to see Dr. Katie Strobe. Dr. Strobe was wonderful! She was thorough in her questioning and very compassionate and nurturing in her approach. The nutrient IV immediately calmed her condition and allowed us to complete our vacation. I cannot thank Dr Strobe enough, and I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for an experienced and caring holistic doctor in the San Francisco area.”

"Thank you so much for the great, successful care that you [Dr. Hangee-Bauer] give to me (and others). I recommend you often. The supplements you gave me had a huge positive impact on my post-menopausal mental clarity."

"For the first time in my life, I have a doctor I feel I can trust. His knowledge of natural, conventional, and Chinese medicine is solid. And he is a sensitive, honest, and caring human being who makes me feel valued and respected."
—Crystal L.
"I feel incredibly blessed to have received treatment from Dr. Hangee-Bauer. I was dealing with some serious imbalances, both physically and emotionally. I am amazed at the measurable changes in my physiology and the improved sense of well being I have had since coming here. Carl has such a warm, human, loving presence. He has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever met. He is a rare treasure—a doctor who can draw upon both western medicine and alternative approaches in a very skillful way. I hope you have an opportunity to experience his caring, healing presence as well."
—Suzanne L.
Thank you for the superb care I have benefited from while in your care. I have never had a doctor spend so much one-on-one time with me, listen so carefully to my concerns, or perform exams so thoroughly and professionally as you do. For once in my life, you could say that I actually look forward to going to the doctor-- not only because you have a stellar bedside manner, but because every time I see you I learn so much too! I can't stop telling my friends that I had the greatest pap ever at SFNM—and that really is saying something!

I received a vitamin C IV drip for a MRSA infection. The Vitamin C drip did the trick—helped it heal dramatically. I recommend SF Natural Medicine!

I just want to say thank you [Dr. Hangee-Bauer] for your assistance on my journey. You have been invaluable in helping me manage and understand the nature of this injury. Your kindness, compassion, and gentle touch with those needles has been a great source of relief the past 3 years.
—Carolyn W.
I wanted to thank you [Dr. Carl Hangee-Bauer] so much for today. I have been pain free the whole evening—for the first time in about 18 months. I cannot express what a relief that is. I was beginning to think I would feel that annoying pain the rest of my life.
—Gary R.
Just want you to know how much I do appreciate the time you have spent with me. Decades of MD care has left me a little shell shocked, and I forget your ways are so very different. Looking forward to feeling better with you in my corner.

Dear Dr: My family has had a history of colon cancer; my grandmother died of colon cancer a few years ago. From an early age, I had trouble with my intestines and couldn't digest most foods. At 18 I was hospitalized and diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and was on a regimen of 18 pills daily and was bedridden for a good amount of the time. I couldn't travel far from home, as I had bowel movements every 10–20 minutes. That was my life for many, many years.

While it improved some, I have always had intestinal trouble, and have had to undergo annual colonoscopy exams to see the state of my colitis and whether any signs of colon cancer were present.

After working with you over the past year, this letter from the gastroenterology department was amazing. There was no evidence of any inflammation or infection, and my colon looked completely normal. That has not been the state of affairs for at least the past 30 years.

I can now eat many foods that were never allowed on my diet, exercise, and keep my weight in check. Thank you so very much!
—Cindy A.
This is fabulous. The homeopathic injection did it again. Its now about 8 hours later, and I feel SO much better, almost 100%. Not only did it relieve the tightness in my throat, but it loosened the muscle in my arm that has been stiff for two weeks. The laryngitis is still hanging around, but tonight is amazingly different and better than last night. I am so fortunate to have you (Dr. Hangee-Bauer) in my life!
—Diane G.
Thanks so much for getting me in last night. I felt better after the acupuncture treatment. I cut back on the meds I have been taking and woke up this morning feeling the best I have all week.
—Gary K.
My nurse practitioner asked me what I was doing because she thought I looked so healthy and was amazed at how well my incisions had healed. I told her about my positive journey with you and nutrition. She asked for your name, and I gladly pass it along.
—Debbie W.
Thank you for the referral to acupuncture—it was a great experience—Dr. Hangee-Bauer is awesome! And it really helped my lungs—no longer hurting me, and I have tons more energy. The sore throat is still bothering me, but that's almost gone, too ... thanks again!
—Sandy M.
It was exciting and inspiring for me to see how you were able to incorporate naturopathic principles with each of your patients. It was clear to me how much your patients appreciated you and valued the time you put in to create individualized treatment plans.

I have gotten more relief from post nasal drip, cough, headaches and fatigue from acupuncture and herbal medicine with Carl Hangee-Bauer than I have gotten with Claritin and other prescribed medicines.
—Diane G.
Since having regular monthly sessions with Dr. Carl, I have been feeling better than I have in years. I have energy, and my aches and pains are vastly diminished or completely gone.
—Shelley N.
Carl Hangee-Bauer is an excellent resource for holistic medicine. His practice as a licensed acupuncturist and naturopathic doctor give him a well rounded blend of eastern and western medicine, as he seeks to understand the underlying causes of disease, not just the symptoms. Carl has the rare and powerful gift of being both highly knowledgeable and compassionate.

When I came to see Dr. Hangee-Bauer, my stomach was upset all the time and my energy level was at an all-time low. I was just exhausted most of the time. He suspected food allergies and tested me for them. After determining which foods I should avoid, I began a diet eliminating the foods the test showed sensitivities to. Within a week and a half it was like a light swtich going on. My energy was excellent and my stomach calmed down. I felt great. I was able to resume my exercise program, and my skin turned from sallow to a healthy pink glow. An added benefit is fumes no longer bother me on the freeway used to cause a coughing fit. I've also lost weight. Thanks to Dr. Hangee-Bauer, I just feel great. I'm so happy I came to see him. He really listens and supports your every need for long-term health.
—Dawn R.
Thank you Dr. Hangee-Bauer. I felt so much better today. It's really made a big difference in my life, and I wanted you to know. Thanks for doing such great work.
—Gabrielle C.
For less than the price of seeing a regular doctor, I not only get time, but I get real solutions for my health. Things I can do other than just taking a pill.
—Karin S.
Thank you, Dr. Hangee-Bauer, for providing me with this wonderful opportunity. It was certainly exciting to see that what I learned in school was not just a talk or theory but something actually seen and practiced in the real world. I was impressed by the way you talk to patients, explaining the pathology and physiology in an understandable way, talking them through the procedure, and giving them a positive assurance ... I feel like I have come closer to this profession. Thank you.
