Experience
Dr. Martin Vatheuer practices family medicine, taking care of children and adults of all ages. His special interests include dermatology (including skin procedures), pediatrics, sports medicine, travel medicine, prevention and wellness, and healthy lifestyle changes.
He joined EvergreenHealth Primary Care because of its deep commitment to exceptional patient care and its development of the medical home model of care, where each patient has a home at their primary care doctor's office and the care is coordinated using an electronic medical record.
Philosophy
I have been in practice 13 years, and my philosophy has developed over that time. My goal is to be patient-centered and down-to-earth. Prevention is a passion of mine-stopping problems before they start. I really try to understand where patients are coming from, and that involves really listening to the patient's story up front. I do a thorough exam. Then, when the diagnosis, or at least the appropriate tests to get to the right diagnosis are clear, the goal is to form a partnership with the patient, and figure out the best treatment plan together.
Naturally, we physicians are scientists, and we understand the anatomy and physiology behind a medical illness. But we also realize that patient's emotional health and their family/other relationships play a huge role in how health and illness are experienced. More recently, I have been lead to understand that the deepest level is often, in fact, spiritual. Prayer can be a powerful tool for healing.
Personal Information
I am passionate about my children. Together we play soccer, go hiking and skiing, play music, tell stories, read and learn about the world. I also enjoy travel, studying philosophy and the Bible, and great conversations with friends over a good meal. When I can, I enjoy improvising on the piano.
In the Community
I am the assistant coach for my son's soccer team, the Wild Wolves. I also serve on the board of the Vatheuer Family Foundation, which helps indigenous people of the mountains in Oaxaca, Mexico through developing apple and peach orchards. It also funds scholarships and cutting-edge stem cell research. Learn more at http://www.vatheuerfoundation.org.

Very good service.

Again, the delay in appointment time even after talking to the provider is still so poor I would not recommend.

I have recommend this provider, my son goes to him also.

Sometimes I think he spends too much time w/me & that is why he is always behind schedule. I appreciate the time he is spending with me but he could dial it back a bit.

One thing I would request is that the assistant not be in the room (taking notes) while the patient is with the doctor. I did not feel comfortable and this is the one thing I would like to call out and may influence my decision making in future
