New primary care provider at FMA
Dr. Alan Craig Thom comes to Fidalgo Medical Associates from Oregon, where he most recently practiced family medicine and osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) at Adventist Health Primary Care Clinic in Happy Valley, OR.
After earning a Bachelor’s degree from Reed College in Portland, OR, he taught at the Portland Waldorf School, the Shining Mountain Waldorf School in Boulder, CO, and at the Humanus-Haus in Berne, Switzerland.
After 20 years as a teacher, Dr. Thom returned to school and earned his Medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA. He completed a residency in family medicine and osteopathic manipulative treatment at Skagit Valley Hospital, in Mount Vernon, WA.
“Accepting my patients as they are and helping them find the next step toward well-being is my goal,” says Dr. Thom about his approach to patient care.
With a strong interest in personalized primary care, Dr. Thom utilizes evidence-based medicine and incorporates treatments such as osteopathic manipulation, dry needling and integrative therapies. He is experienced in providing care for all ages.
Dr. Thom and his wife, Pat, are excited to move to Anacortes. They feel connected already, having passed through frequently on the way to Camp Orkila with their three children and enjoying three years at Skagit Valley Hospital in residency.
Dr. Thom is accepting new patients. Fidalgo Medical Associates is located in the Island Medical Center at 1213 24th Street, Suite 100, in Anacortes. For appointments, call 360-293-3101.
