Rachael Postman, DNP, has joined Samaritan Family Medicine Resident Clinic, providing primary health care services for people of all ages.
Postman specializes in family planning services, can prescribe buprenorphine for treatment of opioid use disorder and provides gender-affirming care to transgender patients.
Postman earned a bachelor’s degree at The Evergreen State College. She completed bachelor’s, master’s and doctor of nursing degrees at Oregon Health & Science University School of Nursing.
As a nurse practitioner, she combines her interest in science and data with being a caregiver.
“I get to be a cheerleader for my patients,” she said. “I like encouraging them with their wellness.”
Postman uses a collaborative approach to patient care.
“I like to work with people where they are at,” she said. “It’s nice to be able to find solutions to their health care goals that work for them.”
She was interested in working at Samaritan because it’s a nonprofit organization.
“It’s also nice to be close to family,” she said. “Those were two big perks.”
In her free time, Postman enjoys outdoor activities, going to the farmers market, hiking, gardening and spending time with her family.
She is accepting new patients and can be reached at 541-768-5142.
