Dr. Ralph Esposito

STAFF PHYSICIAN

When a patient presents with an issue that doesn’t simply fall into a diagnostic check-box, Dr. Esposito utilizes his tools as a naturopathic physician and licensed acupuncturist to dig deeper. Dr. Esposito’s precise and personalized style embodies a progressive approach to medicine, where his persistence and curiosity are ideal in managing clinically complex cases.

Dr. Esposito specializes in integrative urology and men’s health. He has been published and is a peer reviewer in well-respected medical journals. Further, Dr. Esposito has authored several medical textbook chapters and has designed education modules for health professionals specifically on male and female urological conditions, prostate disorders, hormonal issues, andropause, fertility, exercise, men’s health and sexual health.

The journey into healthcare and wellness began with his undergraduate work at NYU. He graduated cum laude from NYU with a Bachelor’s in Nutrition and Dietetics and Pre-medical studies. In 2011 Dr. Esposito began his research and work with Dr. Geovanni Espinosa at NYU Smilow Integrative and Functional Urology Center. Dr. Esposito continued his work at NYU during his medical training and still works closely with Dr. Espinosa. Furthermore, Dr. Esposito holds a position as adjunct professor at NYU where he lectures on integrative nutrition.

His passion for medicine continued into medical school as he graduated summa cum laude from the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine. Concurrently, Dr. Esposito completed his master’s in Acupuncture from the University of Bridgeport Acupuncture Institute graduating summa cum laude and honored with the Golden Needle Award in clinical excellence. While at UBCNM, Dr. Esposito worked under Dr. D’Adamo learning the intricacies of Generative medicine including SWAMI, Opus23 and blood type specific treatments. Dr. D’Adamo’s personalized medical approach inspired Dr. Esposito to incorporate these tools into his style, bringing the most precise and individualized approach to his patients.

Food as medicine is as much a part of naturopathic medicine as it is of Dr. Esposito’s strong Italian roots. Dr. Esposito loves to spend his weekends in the kitchen and his October making homemade wine with his family.
