Dr. Gunningham's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gunningham "I was born in Bristol, England. I graduated from Vavoua International School, Ivory Coast, West Africa. I received a B.A. in chemistry from Seattle Pacific University and my M.D. from the University of Washington Medical School in Seattle. I completed my family practice residency at Tacoma Family Medicine in 1990 and am certified by the American Board of Family Practice. I am a member of the Whatcom County Medical Society and American Medical Association. Before coming to Birch Bay Family Medicine, I worked at the Eastside Clinic in Tacoma and then at the Lynden/Everson Community Health Center in Whatcom County from 1994 to 2008. A few of the many things I enjoy about family medicine includes caring for pregnant patients, watching children grow and develop into adults, never quite knowing what the next day in the clinic will bring, and the lifelong learning it takes to diagnose and manage challenging medical issues. I treasures the trust patients place in me to accompany them through the many transitions that life brings. I am married to Juliann, and we have two children. Being a husband and a father continues to be one of life's greatest gifts. I am an avid birdwatcher and enjoy gardening, reading, and travel in my free time. "

Dr. Gunningham very willingly takes the time required to answer any questions presented, whereas others just try to get "in and out". I hope he never retires!
