Chris Gilbert, M.D., Ph.D.


Chris Gilbert, M.D., Ph.D., is an Integrative and Holistic Medicine physician, focusing mostly on public speaking. For 15 years she was in private practice in California, specializing in the combination of Western and Eastern Medicine and dedicating her life to treating and curing symptoms and illnesses that other physicians haven’t been able to address. She is known for her exceptional success in treating chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, depression, recurrent infections, lower back pain, sexual problems, unexplained abdominal pain, and arthritis through methods she pioneered.

Before establishing her private practice, Dr. Gilbert worked with Doctors Without Borders and treated a staggering variety of illness suffered by poor and displaced people around the world. She has worked with patients in Mozambique (a pediatric hospital during a civil war), Sri Lanka (28,000 refugees in the north of the Island during a civil war), Mauritania (Touareg refugee camp at the border of Mali), and China (400,000 people displaced by floods). She is an active member of Doctors Without Borders.

Prior to those assignments, she was in a private medical practice in Paris, France. Dr. Gilbert holds a General Medicine M.D. and Ph.D. from Cochin Port-Royal Medical School in Paris, France, and certifications in Hyperbaric Medicine, Sexology, Acupuncture, and Homeopathy. She is licensed in California, interned at the University of California, Irvine, and served her residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. She serves at times as a medical adviser for TV shows such as CSY NY.

In 2010 she self-published two books that she sold to her patients: Dr. Chris’s A, B, C’s of Health and The French Stethoscope (a memoir).

In 2017, her latest book The Listening Cure: Healing Secrets of an Unconventional Doctor was published by SelectBooks.
She is currently engaged in basic research with her husband, neuroscientist Eric Haseltine Ph.D., using advanced data analytics to identify both causes of disease and potential new treatments.
