Dr. Amalia Fantasia, PhD, is recognized widely as a leader in the field of health care, health care management, ambulatory health care and nutraceutical medicine. Acknowledged by chemists, bio-engineers, geneticists, physicians and health care administrators alike, Dr, Fantasia has pio- neered many of the preventive and integrative medical practices being standardized and inte- grated into traditional and primary health care today. The nutraceutical protocols and support treatments she has created in conjunction with physicians are well sought after on an international basis by patients and health care providers.


In 1996, she founded Cherry Hill Clinic, an ambulatory primary care practice serving the Southern New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York regions. As Clinic Director, Dr. Fantasia is not only responsible for the clinic’s founding and management, but was instrumental in developing its method of care processes and marketing, working with scientists, bio-chemists and Clinic Physi- cians in establishing entirely new health care modalities and standardizing primary and secondary health care treatment for the Clinic’s patients. As a health care management and bio-chemistry PhD, who has a particular focus in IV nutraceutical medicine as a preventive and support therapy for traditional health care, including cancer, opioid dependence, pre and post surgery, bariatrics and auto immune disorders,  Dr. Fantasia has developed a range of formulated proprietary IV nu- traceutical treatments that are becoming well known and sought after worldwide. Her clinical data from the same period has demonstrated the overwhelming success of Cherry Hill Clinic’s proto- cols and the modularization of the Clinic’s treatments and standard of care that are being sought after nationally by large-scale health care organizations and systems.
