We can’t keep up with Maryal at My DPC Story but we are trying. You can find this podcast here.
Dr. Elizabeth Eaman received her BA from Wesleyan University in Connecticut in “Letters”, a multidisciplinary major including history, philosophy, literature and French. She did graduate work in forensic science at Wayne State University in Detroit before going back to school to pursue medicine.
After residency she worked in Washington State’s King County community health centers for HealthPoint before spending 6 years with University of Washington Neighborhood Clinics in Kent, WA.
After more than a decade working as an employee, she decided to start her own practice, Oodle Family Medicine, where she could be the kind of family doctor she envisioned in medical school.
She enjoys practicing the Direct Primary Care model because she has an unfettered partnership with her patients, free from the burdens of the corporate medical business model and profit-minded (instead of patient-minded) insurance agencies of modern American medical culture.
As the sole practitioner at Oodle Family Medicine, Dr. Eaman has been providing care for lesbian, bisexual, gay, queer, transgender, non-binary, gender-expansive and gender-diverse patients her entire career. She is passionate about educating medical students, residents and other physicians on how to provide appropriate care for this population. She is faculty with the University of Washington Medical School and works with students on their LGBTQ Pathways elective.
