Brittany Kolluru, ND

Adjunct Faculty

Bio

Dr. Brittany Kolluru is a board certified, primary care naturopathic physician treating patients of all ages. She is a private practitioner and adjunct faculty substitute at NCNM. Dr. Kolluru is known for her creative treatment style that focuses on the individual to develop treatments that fit into each person’s unique schedule and lifestyle. She recognizes that there are many factors that contribute to ideal health including physical, mental and emotional aspects.

“My goal is to help patients be successful. Most people already know what things are healthy for them or what they “should” be doing. My job is to help you figure out how to actually make these ideas work in your life. No one wants to be sick or unhealthy, but sometimes we need help figuring out how to make smart choices without feeling deprived or restricted.”

Dr. Kolluru treats acute and chronic diseases, as well as performs yearly screening exams and physicals. In addition to her primary care practice, Dr. Kolluru has a particular focus and interest in skin conditions and performs minor surgery skin procedures including removal of moles, cysts, lipomas and nails. She also performs biopsies and removal of most types of skin cancer, as well as treatment for sunspots or age spots. 

Dr. Kolluru completed her four-year naturopathic medical degree from NCNM in 2010. She then accepted a highly competitive two-year residency position at NCNM, during which time she completed a two-year rotation in skin care and minor surgical procedures. Additionally, Dr. Kolluru completed rotations in women’s health, physical medicine and IV therapy, as well as community medicine.

Dr. Kolluru currently practices at the NCNM Clinic where she sees patients privately without student involvement. This allows her to provide patients with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities only available in an academic setting without foregoing the experience of a private practitioner. Dr. Kolluru offers free 15-minute consultations in person or by phone for potential new patients to discuss their symptoms or questions.
