Anna Dowling, M.D., joins medical team at PeaceHealth Peace Island Medical Center

November 28, 2018


Anna Dowling, M.D., has joined the staff at PeaceHealth Peace Island Medical Center. She will provide women’s health (gynecology) and surgical services as a visiting specialist in Friday Harbor, one day per month.

Dowling completed her medical degree at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California Los Angeles in 2005.  Her residency in obstetrics and gynecology followed at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon. An experienced physician, Dowling takes a holistic approach to the practice of medicine and believes the human body has innate wisdom that – if nurtured – will provide well-being and longevity.

She says, “Medicine gives me a very special way to serve others when they are feeling very vulnerable.  I focus not just on particular disease symptoms, but how my patients can achieve overall optimal health.” Dowling likes to blend natural remedies with Western medicine to create care plans that fit the unique situation of each woman she sees. She is a practiced surgeon with an interest in minimally invasive procedures.

Dowling leads an active life outside of medicine with her husband and three children.  She enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, biking and paddle boarding.

PeaceHealth Peace Island is currently scheduling for Dr. Dowling. She will begin seeing patients on Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018. Patients interested in scheduling with her should call the medical center at 360-378-1738.
