Jessica Doize, ND Naturopathic Physician
Dr. Jessica Doizé is a graduate of Bastyr University and a licensed Naturopathic Physician in the state of Washington. Dr. Doizé is a primary care physician, with special interests in women's health and digestive concerns. While attending Bastyr University, Dr. Doizé worked on multiple women's health speciality shifts and received additional training in fertility, gynecological issues, and hormone replacement treatment. Since her time at Bastyr University, Dr. Doize began her clinical practice as an independent contractor and left to pursue starting her own practice here at Madrona Natural Medicine. Prior to attending Bastyr University, Dr. Doizé received her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Doize’s interest in Naturopathic medicine began after learning about the core principles of this medicine. Throughout her training and clinical practice she has worked to incorporate these core principles into each interaction with her patients. Prevention, treating the root cause, treating the whole person, individualized patient care and educating her patients on their health are integral parts of her primary care practice. Dr. Doizé enjoys working with each patient to establish a healthy foundation and determine what areas of their life are both negatively and positively impacting their overall health so that each individual can reach their own optimal health. The main treatment modalities Dr. Doizé uses include nutrition, lifestyle modification, botanical medicine, hydrotherapy, and counseling. However, just as each patient is an individual, the approach to treatment is also very personal and individualized. In addition to complementary medical treatment modalities, Dr. Doizé can work with patients to determine if pharmaceutical medications or other conventional medical interventions are necessary during the course of treatment. In her time away from the clinic, she enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, and close friends; often bonding over tabletop games. She also continues to make time for creating digital illustrations, a hobby she has enjoyed since childhood.
