Dr. Katherine Lopez Sankey (Dr. Kat)
I’m a holistic-minded family doctor who believes in the body’s innate ability to heal. I see both children and adults. My conventional medical training at the University of California Berkeley, the University of Michigan Medical School, and my one year of family medicine residency at Providence Milwaukie Hospital here in Oregon, taught me to recognize serious diseases and safely manage pharmaceuticals.
I respect my patients as intelligent people looking to establish a healing relationship with me. You and I put together a detailed plan to restore your health, and I make sure you leave with a complete understanding and everything typed onto a handout for you to take home.
I use medications judiciously, and rely largely on nutrition and counseling to help my patients heal. I love helping people reduce their need for medications and find lasting solutions instead.
I have received advanced training in mind-body medicine, nutritional healing, and naturopathic approaches to women’s health, including chronic yeast and bacterial imbalances. I have 4 years of experience in functional medicine, in which I use advanced testing methods to identify the underlying causes of complex chronic disease. I work with experienced naturopathic doctors to add their expertise in herbs and homeopathy to our wellness plan if you desire.
I have studied cranial osteopathy (also known as craniosacral therapy) and enjoy weaving in this modality.
Available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday.
