Dr. Richard SaintCyr, MD
I am a board-certified family medicine doctor with fifteen years of clinical practice at community clinics and hospitals, in the USA and also China. I have a unique combination of skills including writing a health column in the New York Times China edition; directing a hospital chain's national marketing department; and extensive public health education including a TEDx lecture and an internationally known family medicine blog at MyFamilyHealthGuide and also at MyHealthBeijing. I am an advocate for public health, especially regarding air pollution, with numerous interviews and articles on TV, magazines and newspapers. I published a wellness book in Chinese in 2014, An American Doctor's Journey To Good Health in China . I was chosen by my peers at WONCA, the World Organization of Family Doctors, for their 2014 book Family Doctors in the Field, highlighting "environmental warriors, battling to ensure their communities are healthy places that nurture the lives of each of their citizens." My wife and I have decided to move to the Kitsap area and Bainbridge Island, where we are committed to raising our two toddler boys and enjoying the wonderful quality of life and community spirit there. I look forward to contributing to the Kitsap community in all aspects, from family medicine to education and public health.

This Dr. never once established eye contact, he would look up and away to ask a question, looked at the floor the remainder of the time.
