Rebekah Byrne, MD, has joined Samaritan Heartspring Wellness Center. She specializes in integrative medicine and functional medicine and provides primary care to patients of all ages.
She earned bachelor’s and medical degrees at Tulane University. She completed residency training at Swedish Family Medicine Residency - First Hill in Seattle and a fellowship at Swedish Family Medicine - Cherry Hill Campus.
Dr. Byrne has a deep sense of compassion and a curious mind.
“I love trying to put all the clues together to figure out what’s going on and to work with my patients to help them achieve optimal health,” she said.
Her approach to patient care begins with listening.
“I want to learn all about my patients, their lifestyle, nutrition and stress,” she said.
She chose her specialty because it aims to address the underlying root causes of illness and is inclusive of therapies including vitamins, herbs and supplements. She is excited for the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment with other integrative medicine physicians.
“Cultivating compassion and mindfulness in medicine is the key to creating space for a healing encounter and finding joy as a doctor,” Dr. Byrne said.
Away from the office, she enjoys reading, writing poetry, traveling and spending time in nature.
