Family medicine (including newborns and pediatric patients)
Board Certified in Family Medicine
As a family physician, I'm interested in the health of the entire person which encompasses all body systems and emotional well-being. Most often it is the patient who has the greatest insight into his or her own health. It is my responsibility, therefore, to listen carefully and develop a health plan that follows preventative guidelines suited to the individual as well as provide the best management of acute and chronic illness. I see my role not only as an evidence-based medical doctor but as a part of the patient's health care team which includes needed medical specialists and medical support staff.
I'm excited to be back on the West Coast, returning from New England after living more than a decade in Northern California. More than anything I enjoy spending time with family and friends and the Pacific Northwest is a wonderful place for that. I was born in the Midwest and incidentally, my very first professional baseball game was at Wrigley Field, Cubs versus Mariners. Go Mariners!

Reviewed on January 15, 2021 I have had a lot of very un-helpful doctors in the past, and I am so lucky to have found Doctor Abbot. Not only is she wonderful to talk to, kind, honest, and hilarious, but she really cares about her patients and is always ready to find a new solution. She is always assuring that despite my fairly frequent visits that she still always cares and is always ready to keep moving forward, even if something we've tried before hasn't worked. Doctor Abbot is the best there is.
Reviewed on January 14, 2021 it seemed like the diagnosis of my condition was a 'stab in the dark' as was the drug prescribed. I thought a consultation with another physician might have been appropriate.
Reviewed on January 6, 2021 Great doctor! Enjoyed my visit and her strong grasp of the issues I was concerned about.
Reviewed on December 24, 2020 Dr. Abbot was great. She did not judge me, she listened and provided information.
