  • Proper hydration
  • An ability to manage stress
  • A strong immune system
  • Daily dental care

  • Support for acute and chronic illness
  • And so much more…

 

We work with every family we see to help establish these important aspects of health.  We do this by giving you practical guidelines and tools that you can apply to everyday life.

Our Family Of Five Were All Lucky Enough To Have Been Patients Of Dr. Bronwyn’s.

Our family of five were all lucky enough to have been patients of Dr. Bronwyn’s.  With our ages ranging from infancy to adulthood Dr. Bronwyn worked with each of us to address all of our health concerns.  She was always able to take into account the ‘whole picture’ and worked to come up with solutions that worked for us over the long (and sometimes short) term.  I also loved that Dr. Bronwyn took the time to listen to each one of us, and was so caring in her practice.

We had an amazing experience having Dr. Bronwyn Bacon as our family doctor when she was living in Friday Harbor, my family was very sad to see her go. Her calm, caring and personal personality, as well as all her wisdom in the medical field is a real blessing.

Bronwyn Was A Godsend To Our Family!

Bronwyn was a godsend to our family!  She worked with my teenage daughter to help her open up about her health issues in a way that no other doctor has.  She gave her the trust and compassion that let my daughter feel she was working as her personal ally and helped us identify some issues that probably wouldn’t have come to light for a long time.   And she’s not just great for teenagers, the rest of us adored her as well.
