Katie Paul, MD, MPH
I grew up in a small town outside of Seattle. I worked in public health and clinical research before realizing that I really wanted to work directly with patients. I like exploring the intersection between the science of medicine and individual patient relationships.
About my practice: I believe in partnering with my patients to help them achieve their health goals and pursue what is most important to them. I want to create strong relationships with my patients so that we can make informed decisions together that are aligned with their individual values. I am open to integrating complementary and alternative medicine with traditional medicine. I also try to incorporate healthy lifestyle changes related to diet and exercise into treatment plans as much as possible. I'm pleased to be part of Kaiser Permanente's integrated medical system where primary care providers and specialty colleagues work together to deliver excellent care. My main interests are in women's health, LGBT care, HIV care, adolescents, and pediatrics. I like the variability in my day of seeing patients of all ages, performing procedures, and teaching resident doctors. I enjoy seeing patients and families over time and developing strong relationships that lead to better health.
How I thrive: Whether I take a morning run or fit in a workout at the gym after clinic, I try to build exercise into my daily schedule. This helps me stay focused during my workday and to be more efficient. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, and bicycling in the summer and skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. My husband and I like to go camping, backpacking, and explore the National Parks.
