My practice rests on a firm belief that when people come to our clinic that they receive an understanding of the underlying factors that are causing their symptoms. We strive to provide a comprehensive overview of their health, and give a "blue-print" of specific steps they can take using natural medicine to enable them to successfully reach their health goals - and help them feel better. In 2015 I relocated to Kalispell, Montana to join The Montana Center for Wellness and Pain Management, as part of their integrative medicine team. I am excited to be part of the health care team that includes Medical Doctors, Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Massage, Counseling, Physical Therapy and now Naturopathic Medicine in patient centered care. I love the nature in Northwest Montana and feel quite at home here! What brought me to this point: Before I began my Naturopathic medical education -- at age 42! -- I had undergone a metamorphosis in my life and career. Although from childhood I'd had a deeply spiritual connection with nature and an intuitive sense of energy and natural healing, my early adult life became eminently "practical." I worked in office management and bookkeeping. While successful, I found that I really wasn't happy or fulfilled; and it was at that time that I came to the realization that I wanted to formally study medicine. Studying chemistry and physics was totally new ground for me. Yet, I found that I enjoyed my classes in chemistry and physics and then anatomy and physiology. As I was getting ready to apply to medical school, I learned of Naturopathic Medicine. As I researched it, I realized that the tenets of Naturopathic Medicine resonated deeply with me and was the path that I really wanted to pursue. So, at age 42, I packed up all my belongings into a U-Haul truck and drove west across the country to start my journey in becoming a Naturopathic Doctor. Five demanding and satisfying years later, I had learned not only about biochemistry, pharmacology, anatomy and biochemistry, gastroenterology and gynecology, but I had also learned how to effectively use natural therapies such as herbs, hydrotherapy, physical medicine, therapeutic massage, homeopathy and nutrition. I was slowly beginning to assemble a very powerful "toolkit" that combined my rigorous education in science-based natural medicine along with my intuitive awareness and respect for healing, energy and spirituality that I'd had all my life. After graduating with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, and passing the national Naturopathic Medicine boards, I began a two year Bastyr-sponsored Naturopathic family practice residency at Yellowstone Naturopathic Clinic in Billings, MT. After my residency was completed, I opened my own clinic in Miles City, MT. In 2008 I moved to Denver to pursue a three year Master's degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine. During that time, I practiced Naturopathic Medicine in Arvada and later Westminster, CO. Once graduating with my Master's Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, I then added a third "tool" -- acupuncture -- to my natural medicine therapies. Although it was hard to leave a thriving Naturopathic practice in Westminster CO, the opportunity to work in an integrative setting at the Montana Center was too good to pass up. So, once again, I packed up a U-Haul truck and drove across country (this time north!) to Kalispell, MT. Since being at the Montana Center for Wellness and Pain Managment, I have been warmly welcomed by the practitioners at the Montana Center, the community of Kalispell and the Kalispell Regional Medical Center. And, I find that I enjoy the outdoors "Big Sky Country" immensely as I continue to help people on their healing journeys.

Learn about Dr. Gagliardi
I help people who are struggling with pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue, IBS, thyroid issues, diabetes, hormonal issues, anxiety or depression so that they can have more energy, less pain, and get back to living their lives once again.
My name is Dr. Colleen Gagliardi, and my goal as a Naturopathic Physician and acupuncturist is to help you back to feeling like yourself again. Frequently I find that there are several underlying issues that may be contributing to your health symptoms. By working together to identify these underlying issues and then addressing them with natural medicine and acupuncture, we can start to get you on the road to health again.
Many chronic health symptoms may be due to undetected food sensitivities, nutrient deficiencies or underlying metabolic imbalances. Once these underlying issues are identified, we then can create a step-by-step treatment plan using a natural medicine approach, incorporating specific diet and nutrients, herbs, supplements, acupuncture, Chinese medicine and mind/body medicine to help you start healing. My goal is to help you get back to feeling like yourself again

Malpractice Claims not available
Healthgrades does not collect malpractice information for Montana.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.

Healthgrades collects non-disciplinary board actions from all 50 U.S. states.
