Patrick Fox, ND

Naturopathic Physician

From an early age, Dr. Fox recognized his desire to help people and an interest in the natural world around him. Having spent the majority of his life traveling, he was exposed to many different ways of life and health. However it was while studying in Belgium during his undergraduate studies that he discovered naturopathic medicine.

Given his interest in nature, environmentalism and holism, his interest was piqued. His research into the field only furthered his desire to become this type of physician; someone who promoted patient’s overall health in a multitude of ways using as natural of an approach as possible. He completed his Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University, one of the world’s preeminent universities for natural medicine.

Dr. Fox has a particular interest in LGBTQ primary care medicine and men’s health with use of many different naturopathic modalities such as physical medicine (specializing in naturopathic manipulative therapy and Kinesio-tape therapy), herbal medicine, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, and diet & lifestyle counseling and nutritional support/supplementation. He has achieved advanced training in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and advanced intravenous (IV) therapy.

Dr. Fox completed a rigorous 2 Year Residency at Holistique Medical Center. He has trained extensively to utilize tools such as Autonomic Response Testing (ART) with Dr. Darvish as well as injection therapies such as neural therapy and ozone injection therapy. His approach with patients is to blend art and science of integrating the best of Western, Eastern, Natural, Anti-Aging, Functional and Bio-Energy medical systems in diagnosing and treating chronic and acute diseases including autoimmune disease, metabolic dysfunctions and chronic Lyme disease, as well as supporting patients with cancer, and improving wellness in those who are healthy.

When he gets to take off the white coat, he enjoys exploring the Pacific Northwest. Having moved to the northwest from Baltimore he finds himself amazed at the sights and smells of such a lush and beautiful landscape. He have a fondness for eating as locally as possible. Cycling, yoga, and trail running are some of his favorite things to do to stay active.

She thoroughly enjoys working with patients of all ages to help establish physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual building blocks and assist patients on their individual health journey. Dr. Rayachoti’s training at Bastyr equipped her to be primary care doctor, but she also has special interests in women’s health, physical medicine, and the connection between the gut and the mind. At Holistique Medical Center, Dr. Rayachoti is currently seeing patients for cranio-sacral therapy, cold laser therapy, nutritional counseling, regulation thermometry, ondamed, neural therapy, needle-free acupuncture, and IV therapy.

When not practicing medicine, Dr. Rayachoti stays healthy by exploring the mountains, sailing in the Puget Sound, trying our new recipes, and traveling around the world with her dear family and friends.
