We welcomed Krystine Spiess, DO, to the PeaceHealth Medical Group Infectious Disease team of providers in 2018.
Dr. Spiess comes to PeaceHealth from the University of Vermont, where she served as an assistant professor of medicine and treated patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. She managed Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grants for HIV patient care and conducted clinical research regarding HIV testing and infections related to injection drug use.
Dr. Spiess went into medicine to serve and care for others and found a good fit in addressing the unique challenges presented by infectious diseases. Within her field, she has special interests in HIV, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, skin, soft tissue, bone, sexually transmitted and central nervous system infections, as well as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), hepatitis C and hepatitis B. She has been actively involved in medical education and mentoring. She speaks Portuguese.
Dr. Spiess spends her free time with her husband and their young son. She enjoys hiking, biking, kayaking, reading and discovering new music.
