Dr. Gavareski's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gavareski "I have been fortunate to practice with the same group for the 26 years I have been in Bellingham. I did my undergraduate training at Whitman College. After graduating from the University of Washington School of Medicine in 1974, I completed my three-year family practice residency in Spokane, Washington. Following residency, I was privileged to teach in the residency program as well as join a family practice group very similar to Family Health Associates. After 10 years, we moved to Bellingham in 1987 because of the excellent medical community, a chance to join the group which became Family Health Associates, the amazing outdoor recreational opportunities, and to be closer to family who all live on the west side of the state. I enjoy taking care of families, including all ages. Although I stopped delivering babies after more than 25 years, I still enjoy working with newborns, young children, and helping guide families with life issues at all ages. I believe strongly in preventive care, assisting my patients with developing and maintaining healthy lifestyles. I also enjoy sports medicine and travel medicine. My wife, Carol, teaches at Bellingham Technical College. We have three grown children and two grandchildren. I enjoy running, hiking, photography, traveling, family activities, and especially being a grandpa. We enjoy active traveling while we can, such as trips to hike around Mt. Blanc in France."
