Dr. Bizzy Riley is a Naturopathic Primary Care Provider who is dedicated to helping her patients achieve their goals in health, work, and life. She graduated with a Doctorate in Naturopathy from Bastyr University in 2005 and has been seeing patients in Issaquah ever since.

Dr. Riley believes strongly that we are all works in progress, and that moderation is the path to happiness and wellness. Her personal goals are to maintain a balanced and joyful life so that she can be optimally available to the needs of her loved ones and patients. Her own life experiences have allowed her to have a deepened sense of understanding for the fact that health looks different for every person, and changes according to different life stages. Dr. Riley is passionate about almost anything involving the outdoors, food, books and music. She lives in Issaquah with her husband, her sons and two dogs.
Dr. Glynn is an Issaquah native specializing in naturopathic pediatric medicine, and especially enjoys helping children and teens living with autism spectrum disorders, anxiety, and ADHD. While she offers regular well-child visits for kids of all ages and abilities, Dr. Glynn loves working with families on the more difficult aspects of daily life, like behavioral struggles, attention span, insomnia and sleep issues, and healthy eating. Dr. Glynn uses mostly step-by-step nutritional changes, craniosacral therapy, homeopathy, behavioral and emotional counseling, and biofeedback to help her patients build on their strengths rather than focus on weaknesses. It is Dr. Glynn philosophy that happiness is as necessary as health; she approaches physical and mental health as a team endeavor with patients, finding the perfect balance between achievability and sustainable change. Dr. Glynn believes wholeheartedly in empowering individuals and families to rediscover their health, and she finds that in doing so they are able to enjoy their lives in a deeper and more fulfilling way.
Dr. Glynn’s experience in the fields of disability and rehabilitative medicine make her uniquely qualified to approach all facets of family medicine with a positive attitude and an open mind. During her time in Recreational Therapy, Dr. Glynn worked at Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Spokane, with Patch Adams M.D. at his Gesundheit Institute, as a coach for junior Paralympic wheelchair sports competitors, and as a certified YogaFit yoga instructor for kids and adults. Her education in Bastyr University’s Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine program gave her the best of both worlds in regards to medicine; she is able to provide for her patients the innovations of modern science strengthened by the wisdom of traditional healing. While in the program, Dr. Glynn completed supplementary specialty shifts in biofeedback, craniosacral therapy, nutritional modification, health education, ASD/ADHD, counseling, homeopathy, and pediatric medicine. Dr. Glynn went on to become certified in Advanced Pediatric Therapeutics from Boucher Institute of Natural Medicine in Vancouver, BC, and co-founded Integra Natural Wellness where she currently sees patients in Seattle. In her spare time, Dr. Glynn loves creative projects at home, adventuring with her husband in their camper, and keeping up with her active blog on nutrition at DrGlynnMedicineWoman.com.
