I am Dr. Donthu.

I welcome you to Saffron Health! The idea of Saffron Health emerged from my desire of offering more to my patients who have consistently shown me love and to do my part in bringing positive change in the health of the community.

I have a strong personal belief that primary care services should be more than just “pill for the ill”, but rather, that they should promote healthy living through easy-to-implement lifestyle changes.

My goal is to provide personalized services in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. My focus always remains on you, my aim is to meet your health goals, and to empower you with the tools necessary to achieve the healthy lifestyle that you deserve! All while respecting your time and the money spent.

I want to reduce the time and money spent trying different solutions with no help, I want to know the cause of your suffering and work effectively to reduce it. That is what sets Saffron Health apart from other primary care clinics.

The functional medicine consult is a specialized service I offer which intends to identify the root cause of the imbalance in complex chronic illnesses and work to optimize your health through healing the mind, body, and spirit. A holistic approach will get you one step closer to living the life of wellness you truly deserve!

So, I welcome you all to become a part of our Saffron family and join us in our journey to your wellbeing.
