Dr. Anne M. Barnard received her bachelor’s degree in neuroscience with a music minor from Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Penn. She received her medical degree from University of Massachusetts Medical School, and completed her family medicine residency at Kaiser Permanente Washington (formerly Group Health) in Seattle.
“Countless people and experiences influenced my path into medicine – from my childhood pediatrician and high school biology teacher, to my own experience with Lyme meningitis in high school, and countless mentors since then. Family medicine became the obvious fit for the true continuity of care and ability to care for patients and families at all stages of life.”
Dr. Barnard provides full-spectrum family medicine and has special interests in obstetrics, women’s health, LGBTQ care, and office-based procedures, as well as integrative medicine and nutrition.
“As a family physician, I strive to specialize in wellness; to walk with patients and families through the ups and downs of their lives; to develop long-term relationships which form the foundation of healing; and promote health through shared-decision making and individualized care.”
Outside of work, Dr. Barnard enjoys music (specifically handbells – bellsofthesound.org), cooking, hiking, bouldering, half marathons, and bike commuting.
