Experience & Philanthropy

Following his residency, Dr. Natanzi completed his fellowship with the renowned sonographer, Dr. Marko Bodor. He mastered ultrasound as both a diagnostic and therapeutic tool for the treatment of sports and spine conditions throughout the body.


Dr. Natanzi’s Jewish upbringing and education have instilled in him the importance of providing selflessly without expectation especially to those in need. He passionately believes and is driven by the concept of Tikkun Olam (making this world a better place) and believes social action and philanthropy are the perfect complement to being a physician and healer.


This was the guiding principle for the creation of Kol Ahava, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that caters to the needs of children with medical disabilities since 2012. Dr. Natanzi serves as the founder and active president of Kol Ahava.
