Medicine as it was meant to be

I'm Dr. Medina. I'm a board-certified family physician in Spokane, WA with over 10 years of experience

I'm also a wife, a mother to an energetic little boy and a fluffy orange cat, and someone who cares deeply for my patients, their families, and our community. You can find me hiking in Riverside State Park, knitting in a coffee shop, enjoying the four seasons in one of Spokane's wonderful parks, or performing in the Spokane Flute Choir. You may have seen my husband at the airport, where he works as a TSA officer.

I was born and raised in Spokane and am a graduate of Lewis and Clark High School and Whitworth College. I went to medical school at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY where I earned my MD degree and completed residency training at North Colorado Family Medicine. I've worked in several different practice settings, from full-spectrum family medicine in rural Montana (think delivering babies, seeing patients in the hospital and clinic, rounding in the nursing home, you name it!) to outpatient family medicine back home in Spokane to working from home doing telemedicine. I've also had the honor of serving as the President of the Spokane County Medical Society in 2023. 

Early in my career, I became dissatisfied with how patients are treated in our insurance-based healthcare system. Long waits, endless phone trees, short appointment times, seeing a different doctor, physician's assistant, or nurse practitioner each visit. I knew there had to be a better way.

I've known about the Direct Primary Care movement for several years and felt it was a solution to what ails our broken healthcare system. I guess I had to try a lot of other ways of being a doctor, and finding them lacking, before taking the plunge and opening my own practice. I hope you'll join me in bringing medicine back to what it was meant to be: based on a direct patient-physician relationship with no middle men.

What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct primary care is a simple, affordable way to have better access to your doctor. I do not accept or bill any insurance. Instead, you pay an affordable monthly subscription-like fee directly to the practice. In exchange, you get unlimited office visits with no copay and easy direct contact with me between visits. All services performed in-house are covered, and outside labs and imaging are available at a discounted rate. A smaller patient panel means your I have time to really get to know you and get to the heart of your concerns.

Free to Be You

Medina Direct Family Medicine offers safe care regardless of gender, race, sexual identity/orientation/expression, or religion. You are free to be yourself here!
