Baljinder Gill D.C.
Baljinder S. Gill D.C., a Washington native, returned to the evergreen state after completing his studies in California. Dr. Gill D.C. earned his Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of the Pacific in 2010 and went on to receive his Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic West in 2013. Dr. Gill D.C. always wanted to be in the medical field.
He initially pursued the pre-dental program but during his undergraduate studies at Pacific, he learned more about how chiropractic can help others and became very intrigued.
“Healthcare is my passion, and I chose chiropractic because it is a non-invasive way of helping others become healthier and maintain a better lifestyle.”
During his time at Palmer College, Dr. Gill D.C. was very involved with helping advance the chiropractic profession. He served on the national board for the Student American Chiropractic Association for two consecutive terms and received numerous honors and awards.
“My motivations to become a chiropractor are driven by the idea of being able to make a positive difference in the lives of others.”
After completing his residency and post-graduate training at Chirocare, Dr. Gill D.C. accepted a position at the Bellevue Pain Institute. There he received advanced training in working with complex spinal disc cases utilizing cold laser and non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. While at the Bellevue Pain Institute, Dr. Gill D.C. pioneered new treatment protocols for diabetic and peripheral neuropathy. He continues to host seminars to help educate patients.
Dr. Gill D.C. returned to his hometown in May 2016 and founded Symmetria Integrative Medical. He and Dr. Samra-Gill D.C. plan to grow and expand the clinic to offer additional services to their patients and the community.

Alyssa Bill N.D.
Dr. Alyssa C. Bill is a Naturopathic Physician here at Symmetria Medical. She was born and raised in the Greater Northwest and earned a Bachelor of Science from at Bastyr University in 2014 with a focus in Integrative Human Biology. Dr. Bill continued her education at Bastyr University and obtained her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine in 2018 with a strong focus on physical medicine, injection therapies, nutrition, and digestive health.
Her passion is helping patients taking control over their pain and helping them through injection and nutrition therapies.
Prior to Naturopathic medicine, Dr. Bill started her medical career as a Certified Nursing Assistant working primarily with patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. She then moved on to work as an Endoscopy Technician at a local hospital seeing first-hand the importance of gut health and the major role it plays in whole-body health. Both jobs played a pivotal role in Dr. Bill’s outlook on our healthcare system. She saw firsthand the importance of treating the whole person, finding the source of dysfunction rather than treating only the symptoms of a problem, as well as focusing on diet and lifestyle modifications.
Away from medical practice, Dr. Bill loves spending time with her family and kids. She has a teenage boy and twin pre-teen girls. She loves watching her kids play sports which include basketball and gymnastics. She also enjoys watching football and rooting for the Seahawks.
Scott Pacheco D.C.
Dr. Scott Pacheco is a San Francisco Bay Area native, growing up in the south bay. After serving eight years in the US Army, he worked as an operations supervisor and project manager for a high-tech company. While training for a marathon in 2000, Dr. Pacheco started experiencing low back, hip, and knee pain.
After seeing his MD and not getting any answers, he decided to see a chiropractor. It was explained to him what was wrong and how chiropractic may help. That was the start of a new way of thinking for him, and led to Dr. Pacheco going to Palmer College of Chiropractic and in 2006, Dr. Pacheco graduated and has been helping people ever since.
After graduation, Dr. Pacheco started working in a three doctor office in Danville, CA, where he learned the value of family care and palliative therapy to help the patients get out of pain faster. A year and a half later, Dr. Pacheco went to work for a doctor in Fremont, CA who had offices throughout the East Bay Area with associate doctors managing them. Wanting to learn that model, Dr. Scott stayed for three and a half years running his own satellite clinic in San Lorenzo, CA. During that time, a majority of the cases were personal and sports injuries.
In 2011 Dr. Pacheco opened his own clinic in Oakland,CA with an emphasis in personal injury cases. He continued to expand his knowledge with specialized training dealing with extremity injuries, including hands and feet, helping patients who were suffering from frozen shoulder syndrome, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and many other conditions.
After two years of commuting from the San Ramon Valley, Dr. Pacheco decided to move closer to home, which led to opening a new office back in Danville, CA, where he practiced for over 5 years.
In the early summer of 2019, Dr. Pacheco closed his office in California and moved to Washington to be closer to family. Symmetria's focus on patient care matched well with Dr. Pacheco's years of experience and values, and in June 2019, he joined their team.
No matter the problem, rest assured that Dr. Pacheco has the skill and training to provide you and your family the best care available.
