Where is Dr. Culver?

Dear NWIM patients,

As you know, I take great pride in my performance and quality of work at NWIM. Regretfully, unforeseen pregnancy complications have necessitated I start an early maternity leave.

While I’m away I will not be available to patients. Email and Charm messages will be checked infrequently and should not be used for medical issues. For urgent needs please contact NWIM directly (see below). Urgent concerns will be triaged and relayed to me as necessary. Otherwise, my responsibilities will be managed by the wonderful remaining staff and physicians.

I have spoken with several of you individually in regards to what provider you would fit best with during my absence. I have every confidence in our physicians to continue your care.

I expect to be out of the office beginning September 17th with a tentative return of December 4th.

Thank you for your confidence in my work and your support for the months ahead. I look forward to returning soon.

For appointments/rescheduling and medical concerns please call 503-855-4341
For medication refills please contact your pharmacy
For administrative/business concerns please contact Dr. Maeghan Culver

About Dr. Culver

” Mental health is as important, and intimately tied, to our physical health. True wellness is the harmony of both. 

Dr. Culver is a primary care physician whose practice aims to listen, investigate, understand, and teach. Her practice focuses in holistic, whole-person, mental health care. Her approach to mental health is three-fold, addressing underlying factors that contribute to our mental health including digestive health, lifestyle habits, and neurochemical imbalances. She uses neurotransmitter testing, hormone evaluation, food intolerance testing, orthomolecular supplementation, herbal medicine, and provides psychiatric pharmaceutical management as needed. Each treatment plan is individualized. In her holistic practice she uses a collaborative approach, encouraging her patients to utilize counseling, psychiatrists, bodywork, hydrotherapy, craniosacral therapy, and acupuncture. When her patients adopt this model for recovery and remission they see long-lasting, sustained results. Dr. Culver works with a variety of people who are living with depression, anxiety, addiction, bipolar disorder, ADHD, schizophrenia, and psychosis. She helps people of all ages, including children, teens, and adults.

At Northwest Integrative Medicine she creates a judgment and perception-free environment. She proudly honors gender, racial, and cultural diversity, and has additional background and training in gender affirming and medically supported transition/confirmation. She believes no person should be denied care or compassion simply because of who they are or who they love. She strives to be a friend and advocate of the LGBTQ-Q community.

Dr. Culver has helped many men and women through gender transition/confirmation by the use of hormones, care coordination, and referrals for confirmation surgery.
