Dr. Janet Deegan has the following 2 specialties
- Preventive Medicine
A preventive medicine/wellness specialist is a physician who, through additional training, has become an expert in methods for maintaining good health and preventing disease. These specialists are the doctors people see when they are generally well or without a specific ailment and want to either learn how to maintain their current health or acquire better health.
These doctors will advise patients on specific diets, exercise regimens, and lifestyle habits that are suited to their particular needs. Preventive medicine/wellness specialists take into account a patient's nutrition deficiencies, physical and cardiovascular capabilities, and habits in order to advise specific vitamins and supplements to take, how much physical activity to undertake, and which habits should be broken and replaced with more positive behavior.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

My review of Dr. Deegan is limited because we never made it as far as an actual appointment. As a new resident of Spokane, I selected Dr. Deegan primarily because of her overall positive reviews. My three year old son is behind on his vaccination schedule, as is determined by WA state. We purposively selected a slower schedule for certain shots. The response of Dr. Deegan's staff was to decline to sign the vaccination waiver and to suggest he be seen by urgent care to receive his vaccinations. I find this response to be insufficient and one from a physician who does not deserve our time and money.
Dr. Deegan is great. She allows the time necessary to find out wha the root of the problem is. She is concerned about individual health and about the over all health of people who reside in Spokane. If you are in pain she will find out why instead of just perscribing pain killers to cover up the problem.We need more Physicans like her in Spokane.
