Welcome to Eventide Health

Welcome to our new website. We’re a private independent practice in Friday Harbor offering both traditional medical care (billing insurance and Medicare/Medicaid) and a Direct Primary Care practice that offers personalized care at a great price that doesn’t utilize insurance. We’re excited to have you join either part of our practice.

In the meantime, please feel free to look at the pricing schedule and options to see if it’s a good fit for you. Our traditional practice …

Too Much Melatonin?

As Americans we take too many meds and higher doses than we need on average. One great example is the over the counter sleep aid melatonin.

You may find the results are surprisingly …

COVID vaccine

Please note that we are working diligently with the state health department for being able to provide the COVID vaccine(s) to our patients. We completed the application process last year and are still awaiting approval. Once we have it delivered we will notify everyone via internet and local newspaper that you may begin scheduling. We want to provide the vaccine …

Virus recommendations, Holiday closure

With a few more cases appearing recently we’d like to recommend that everyone supplement with Vit D, zinc and glutathione daily. After MANY months of research these are what I believe to be sound recommendations. Amounts vary based on a few factors, but generally 600-800 IU of Vit D daily (unless you have a deficiency), 50mg of zinc (unless you’re …

Please consider staying home and not traveling this year for the holidays. The more travel we have and the more visitors we have to the island the more chances of community spread of …
