The Family Medicine department welcomes Dr. Akira Kobayashi to The Polyclinic. Dr. Kobayashi is located at our Madison Center location and starts seeing patients in September. He graduated as a member of the medical honor society Alpha Omega Alpha from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in 2015 and completed his residency at Swedish Family Medicine – First Hill in 2018.
“I try to be as transparent as possible when explaining my clinical reasoning so that my patients can make informed decisions about their medical care,” Dr. Kobayashi said.
Dr. Kobayashi practices the full scope of family medicine at The Polyclinic Madison Center. He has a special interest in addiction medicine (suboxone), obstetrics, psychiatric care, musculoskeletal injuries, and outpatient procedures. In collaboration with Lutheran Community Services Northwest, Dr. Kobayashi provides medical examinations for applicants seeking asylum.
On days off you can find Dr. Kobayashi exploring the Cascades—hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, rock climbing, and bouldering. He also enjoys cooking and spending time with his wife and daughter.
Welcome to The Polyclinic, Dr. Kobayashi!
