Dr. Kayla Luhrs, MD
What my training is: I grew up in Ketchikan, Alaska salmon fishing, berry picking and watching black bears from my swing set. I went to University of Wyoming for undergrad followed by medical school in Seattle at UW where I did a "rural/underserved longitudinal training track" spending time in Port Angeles, WA and different cities all over Alaska. Another highlight of medical school for me was spending 10 weeks in Gulu, Uganda doing a social medicine course and training with local medical students in the hospital. For residency I went to Tacoma Family Medicine where I focused on women's health, wilderness/travel medicine, urgent care and community health. Seeing increasing data about the benefits of yoga on chronic disease, I decided to pursue my yoga teacher training in Mysore, India and completed my yoga therapy certification here in Portland while working part time as an urgent care physician. I am excited to finally be opening my primary care practice.

Care Philosophy

 As a family doc, an important part of my job is helping patients create a support team that collaboratively blends different healing methods to create a true wellness plan for patients.  

In addition to typical fee-for-service appointments, we are happy to also offer a "collective model" as a cost-effective option for patients seeking a an ongoing relationship with their primary care provider. ?

Patients pay an HSA-eligible monthly contribution to be a member of the collective. This gives people year-round access to their personal "primary care doc" without any co-pays or having to meet a high deductible. It also helps people access more natural medicine that may not be covered by insurance.

Insurance still covers your medications, imaging, lab, specialist visits, emergencies and hospitalizations. No co-pay, no deductible, always $100/month for primary care and weekly yoga or meditation class.

We can discuss this option at your first appointment to see if it may be ideal for you.

Patient Comments (1)
She was very understanding and took into consideration you're view points on medication that you felt necessary or unnecessary and did not prescribe you extra medication that you would not take. She was very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions about your illness she was treating. She always has a smile and a nice deminor I saw her late night close to closing time in the immediate care and she still took her time to make sure I was completely taken care of.
