EvergreenHealth recently welcomed Dr. Venuka Wickramaarachchi (“Dr. Wick”) to its Signature Care practice in Woodinville, where she joins a team of concierge medical providers within EvergreenHealth’s extensive network of primary care practices.

Dr. Wick brings experience implementing individualized treatment plans for patients of all ages, with an emphasis on preventive and evidence-based medicine. Most recently, she served as a family medicine physician at Providence Medical Group in Monroe and is currently pursuing a fellowship in integrative medicine. Dr. Wick earned her medical degree from the University of Latvia and completed her residency at the New York Medical College Family Medicine Residency Program at Saint Joseph’s Medical Center in New York.

“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Wick to our specialized team of EvergreenHealth Signature Care providers,” EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte said in a press release. “Her commitment to whole-patient health, lifelong learning and integration of evidence-based care methodologies make Dr. Wick an exceptional addition to our care team.”

A board-certified family medicine physician, Dr. Wick provides holistic, personalized and compassionate care while promoting the importance of mindfulness, nutrition and pursuing fulfilling hobbies. She practices the full spectrum of family medicine, including office-based surgical procedures, such as joint injections, IUD placements, and minor dermatology and gynecological procedures. According to Dr. Wick, her philosophy of building a personal, meaningful connection with each of her patients is inspired by her own family’s close relationship with their medical provider.
