NEW TO DPC? 

We help practices with transition to a DPC model

We assist primary care physicians in the process of converting to a direct primary care practice. We will share our forms, give you advice on practice set up, help you make decisions about a hybrid vs. straight DPC model, advise you on which platforms to use for the unique aspects of DPC practices such as billing and communication. We are just “paying it forward” from those who helped us get started. We all benefit from your success, including the companies and employees we serve.

Biographical Info

My approach to medicine and taking care of my patients is similar to the approach I take to a lot things in my life: practical, well-researched, thoughtful, open-minded and very personal. I utilize the best practices of modern medicine, but I also honor the innate healing potential of the human body by embracing alternative medicine treatment options when appropriate and effective. I specialize in Internal Medicine and Integrative Medicine and have clinical training in Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) therapy.

My educational background includes a Masters in Nursing (MSN) and Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-C) degree from Gonzaga University and a Bachelors of Arts in Nursing (BA) from the University of Alaska, Anchorage. I am board certified through the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) and have completed a 2-year Fellowship in Integrative Medicine through the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine (AWCIM) from the University of Arizona, Tucson. I also have a post-graduate certification in Global Health from OHSU. The Integrative Medicine Fellowship through AWCIM has transformed both my personal life and medical practice in many remarkable ways. I am passionate and dedicated to passing this knowledge of a “healing-approach” to medicine on to all my patients.

I live in Medford, Oregon with my husband, Peter, who is the love of my life. We have four grown children living in various parts of the Northwest and whose families are constantly growing to our delight. We spend our leisure time enjoying the bounties of the Rogue Valley, cooking up a storm in our kitchen, building community with our “neighbors table” events, traveling as often and as far as we can, and working constantly on improving our individual and collective health.

Biographical Info

Born and raised in Jamaica, with living and research experience in Ethiopia and Tanzania, I have been exposed to a diverse range of cultural approaches to health around the world. I honed in on this interest by studying International Public Health at Stanford University and later attended medical school at the University of the West Indies (UWI) in Jamaica. After just one year at UWI and two yoga teacher training courses, it became clear to me that a holistic approach to medicine was the only way to foster true healing. In an attempt to expand my knowledge and experience of this approach to medicine I left UWI and found my new home at Bastyr University in Seattle, WA to study Naturopathic Medicine. I earned my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine in 2018 and moved back home to practice alongside my mentor at an Integrative Medical Clinic in Kingston, Jamaica before moving to Oregon to join the SVM team. My clinical interests include all aspects of primary care and preventive medicine, with a particular passion for women’s health, cardiovascular disease, digestive health, cancer support, counseling and stress management.

Biographical Info

I moved to Klamath Falls from Roseburg in 1978 to attend OIT graduating with AS in Business and BS in Diagnostic Imaging.  After graduating I completed two years of resident training in Phoenix Arizona.  I then returned to Klamath Falls and worked 11 years at Merle West Medical Center in Interventional Radiology and Cardio Vascular procedures.  During this time I raised kids, horses and dogs.  Believing I could do more to help the people I cared for, I returned to college and graduated in 1996 from the University of Washington Medical School -MEDEX Northwest. I returned to Klamath Falls and joined Klamath Family Practice Center.  In 2017 we decided to close the practice. I then opened Klamath Fall’s first Direct Primary Care clinic in April of 2017. This type of practice allows me and my patients to have a better quality of life!

The fact medicine has dramatically changed in the past 35 years led me to the conclusion there had to be a better, more affordable way to provide patient care.  The typical medical setting forces providers to see 28 or more patients per day, only allowing short and rushed visits.  We all deserve better.  New is not always better so we went “Old School”.  In a direct primary care our office visits are scheduled for 30 – 45 minutes with the provider, there is little to no wait time.  This allows the appropriate time to get to know my patient and their family, to ask questions of the patients and for my patient to ask all their questions without feeling rushed.  To ask how they are doing, how their family is doing, and yes even ask about the family dog! I am available to my patients via email, texting, facetime, after hours visits and even house calls!

My Approach

My medical approach is rooted in Vitalism, a system of medicine that focuses on cure, using the body’s own innate ability to heal. I employ time-tested natural therapies as well as the latest medical technology to develop sustainable health plans that empower my patients to take control of their health.It is my intention to make complex medicine simple, reconnect people with their bodies, and teach my patients the foundations of health.

My Background

As a native of Utah I grew up in a small farming community at the base of the Uintah Mountains. There among the mountain streams and rugged peaks I fell in love with Nature and developed a deep appreciation for its natural systems. As life would have it another force of nature, cancer, struck my family as it has so many families across this nation. And as in most cases my father battled through surgery and chemotherapy only to become weaker and more susceptible to his cancer. As my father slowly lost his resolve for life, my resolve to find answers and a more sensible approach to medicine became stronger and I found a system of medicine that teaches to strengthen the body’s natural disease-fighting ability. As a physician I bring this fresh perspective to my community, a perspective that is resolute in helping people become stronger, better adapted to fight illness, and better educated about their health options.

My Education

  • Undergraduate Degree:  Bachelor of Science in Biology; University of Houston-Downtown
  • Doctorate Degree:  Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine; Bastyr University
  • Post Graduate Training: PRP, Prolotherapy, Neurotherapy, and Ozone therapy; Klinghardt Academy, Anthroposophical Medical Training

She has practiced in a variety of settings, and has spent a significant amount of her career serving in physician executive roles, in addition to maintaining her practice.

    Dr. Pennavaria’s passion has always been serving her patients. She considers it a privilege and honor to have people entrust her with their health and their lives. What she loves most about practicing medicine is the relationships she builds with her patients.
