Dr. Nam, Sang Jin, N.D.
Dr. Nam is a licensed primary care provider and naturopathic physician in Washington State. He received his Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University, interned at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health, and completed his residency at Nurturing Life Center. Prior to his study in medicine, he earned his bachelor degree at Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea and had professional career in E&Y Korea for many years.
With a strong familial background in medicine (his father being hepatologist, mother being a nutritionist, and brother being a neurologist), Dr. Nam started his own journey in medicine after a medical mission trip to underdeveloped countries in Asia and Africa. When he encountered smiles of gratitude from patients after offers of free treatment and their tears flowing from their suffering and indifference, Dr. Nam realized instantly what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. He made a decision to leave behind his promising and stable job in Korea and pursued, instead, a new career in medicine. While he may not currently be in the foreign medical mission field, he is ministering to the underserved as a volunteer physician at Puget Sound Christian Clinic to help those who have low income or do not have health insurance.
Dr. Nam is passionate about providing quality primary care, education, and support to patients at every stage of life. He spends time with his patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. He tries to understand his patients as a whole person and not just an isolated set of symptoms. With this approach, he addresses the underlying causes of disease and offers personalized medicine. Dr. Nam integrates standard of care with naturopathic modalities and principles to offer his patients the best options out of both conventional and natural therapeutics.
As a personal conviction, he is dedicated to loving God, and serving His family and patients.
