Gloria Madamba, M.D.
Gloria Madamba, M.D., was born in Laoag City, Philippines and grew up in Manila. From childhood she knew she wanted to be a doctor and went on to graduate from Far Eastern University School of Medicine, where she also met her classmate and future husband Dr. Jose. They came to the United States and settled in Honolulu, HI where she completed her internal medicine residency training at the University of Hawaii. Dr. Gloria worked on the internal medicine staff at Straub Clinic & Hospital for 16 years. However, though she loved working at Straub she followed her heart and prioritized family: joining Dr. Jose in 1991 in private practice, where she works to this day. With guidance from her spiritual guru Divine Mother, Dr. Gloria began training in integrative medicine in order to add a holistic dimension to her patients’ care. Her pursuits have led her to further training and certification at the Aloha Ayurveda Academy and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medication. Dr. Gloria embraces a healing philosophy that recognizes the mind/body/spirit connection and views lifestyle/habits as first-line treatment to go hand in hand with natural remedies & medical treatments. Dr. Gloria enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, Hallmark movies, health/medical webinars, walking on the beach, yoga, dancing/Zumba, reading, gardening, and traveling.
