Primary Care, Mental Health, Women's Health & Holistic Pelvic Care
Clinic Location: Tualatin
Hi! I’m Dr. Sterling Dorman Crittenden, but I go by Dr. Sterling ;-) I am a board licensed Naturopathic Physician and Primary Care Provider. I am available at Hale Health as an independent practitioner 1-2 days per month.
I welcome any person into my practice, and see a wide array of different medical issues on any given day. An important part of my practice is in advocating for my patients, and helping them learn how to advocate for themselves. Our health is our birthright, and with regard to health…I believe that knowledge is power, which is why I spend a lot of time in discussion with each patient, making sure that they know what everything means, and answering any questions as they come up. Instead of looking for a "quick fix", I focus on figuring out the big picture, and together we work to bring all of the pieces of the puzzle to the table, in order to know how best to move forward with an individualized treatment plan. The journey toward better health and well being is a beautiful process, and can be difficult. I’m here as a guide, to provide you with the best of my knowledge, and the most effective treatment options that are available, in both the Naturopathic Model as well as the Conventional Standard of Care practices.
My own personal journey through health and healing has been arduous and fascinating, and I am so grateful for the guidance I have had and the tools I have learned along the way. It is with the utmost gratification and joy that I am able to spend my days working with patients, to help guide them toward their own sense of personal empowerment, and toward the goal of improving their health and well being.
