Active-living passions draw family doctor west

Primary care physician enjoys helping patients reach their wellness goals

When Dr. Jimmie Stewart finished his residency in Kansas and was ready to begin his medical practice, the Pacific Northwest quickly captured his attention. Yes, there were the professional opportunities, but what really captivated the primary care physician was the ability to stay active outside year-round, pursuing fitness and recreational pastimes like hiking and kayaking.

Today, Dr. Stewart brings those passions to his family medicine practice at the Pacific Medical Centers (PacMed) Canyon Park clinic in Bothell, where, in addition to caring for patients from newborns to seniors, he brings a special interest in sports medicine, fitness, weight loss and preventive care.

“I really enjoy taking care of everyone in the family and building those long-term relationships with children, their parents and grandparents,” Dr. Stewart says. “It feels good to help people, and to help them find success in their goals, whether that’s improving their fitness, losing weight or getting back to an activity they love.”

Families that play together can stay healthy together

By building those relationships, Dr. Stewart can more easily support patients in their wellness goals, whether it’s disease prevention through nutrition and fitness or charting a course back to the playing field following an injury.

Dr. Stewart’s accessible approach underscores how building trust with patients is key to their success, as is a practical, mindful care plan. “I think it’s important to have a realistic approach and come up with a plan that can be maintained, such as building in rewards for success,” he explains.

Similarly, improving fitness while reducing the chance of injury also benefits from a plan. After all, adds Dr. Stewart, “we know that keeping moving definitely helps keep you healthy.”

When the unexpected does happen, the right care is key.

“I enjoy working with the patient to figure out exactly what happened and how to get them back to their activity,” Dr. Stewart says. “We can make the assessment, create a protocol for getting back to play safely and help address the symptoms they’re experiencing.”

Numerous resources at hand

While Dr. Stewart enjoys providing hands-on care as much as possible, with a full suite of specialists, surgeons and physical therapists on the PacMed team, referrals are simple when more specialized care is required.

“We have all the resources here to assess the injury and, if necessary, connect you with the experts you need to get you well,” he says.
