More about Dr. Matt Baran-Mickle
I am a naturopathic physician providing functional and integrative primary care and specialty care, both in-person and via telemedicine.
I believe that everybody has the ability to be healthy all on its own, and that my role as a physician is to help establish the foundational conditions for health, and to help remove obstacles that get in the way. My goal for every patient is to uncover the root causes of illness and dysfunction and to build resiliency with natural approaches.
I typically see new patients for 60-90 minutes, with 30-60 minutes for return visits - this gives us the time to get to the bottom of things, and to really understand what is going on in your life. I weave together many modalities in my practice, incorporating diet and lifestyle strategies, nutrient therapy, herbal/botanical medicine, counseling, physical medicine, and, of course, medications as needed. I love educating patients about their health and seeing them light up when something clicks about their health story – and seeing them get better on their own terms, with their own efforts.
I grew up in a family that utilized both conventional and alternative medicine, receiving chiropractic and homeopathic treatment as well as regular visits with my pediatrician. In college, I developed a passion for human biology, and given my interest in teaching and my desire to work with people one-on-one, it became clear that a career in medicine was a perfect fit. As I completed a senior thesis on nutrition and autoimmunity, I considered conventional medical programs but decided I couldn’t buy into a system that managed to marginalize the health of both patients and providers. A friend told me about naturopathic medicine, and I was immediately hooked – it was a perfect way to integrate my interest in medicine with my love for nutrition, fitness, and holistic thinking.
Insurance and billing
I take almost all Blue Cross & Blue Shield plans, including Premera and Regence. I also participate in the First Choice Health Network, which includes most Kaiser PPO plans, as well as the WA Fire Department insurance. If I am out-of-network, I offer reasonable self-pay rates, and can provide superbills for our visits that you can submit to your insurance for partial reimbursement. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out!
