Brent E. Whitehead MD

  • Family Medicine

Dr. Whitehead, a board-certified family medicine physician, is not new to practicing in Bellingham-he's been meeting the needs of adult and pediatric patients locally since 2006.

He says, "I enjoy the diversity in family medicine; treating the young and the elderly and meeting their respective needs."

Dr. Whitehead is excited about the opportunity to help the community and PeaceHealth Medical Group patients with access to care when it is needed. Although a change from a practice with a distinct population of patients, he remains committed to practicing medicine the way he's always done; that is, by listening to each patient, treating them with respect, and providing them with the most appropriate treatment.

Dr. Whitehead has many interests outside medicine, including beekeeping, photography and helping his wife with her new adventure-a lavender farm. He also enjoys golfing and snow sports.
