Masks are still required in healthcare settings per CDC and state health department guidelines.
Francine Martis, MD, joined the PeaceHealth Medical Group Family Medicine in 2014. Inspired by her father to find a career that would allow her to care for people, Dr. Martis learned that she likes working with patients because at the end of the day she feels grateful to have helped individuals of all ages.
Beyond her advanced training in family medicine, she is interested in visiting diabetic groups, women’s health, patient education and disease prevention through diet and exercise, and community medicine with a focus on middle schools. “I believe in educating my patients on any and all disease processes, while at the same time empowering them to take control of their health.”
To set the example and stay healthy, she gets her eight hours of sleep and schedules time on her calendar to talk with family and friends. When not working, Dr. Martis enjoys painting landscapes, photographing historic buildings, travelling and learning about wine regions. Originally from Dubai and later Toronto, Dr. Martis now calls Bellingham home with her husband and their Bernese Mountain dog.
