About Michael Wauters, MD

Born and raised on Bainbridge Island, Wash., Dr. Wauters spent much of his youth climbing trees, building forts and having adventures with his two younger brothers. After college at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, he spent a year in Ecuador on a Fulbright Fellowship studying Chagas Disease before venturing to the Midwest for medical school at the University of Wisconsin. This was followed by a return west for residency at the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho in Boise after which he joined NOHN in 2017.

Professionally Dr. Wauters enjoys all aspects of family medicine from the care of newborns all the way to older adults, delivering babies, and especially takes joy in caring for entire families. Whenever possible he seeks to employ nutritional and lifestyle medicine options for maximizing health. He firmly believes that each person is inherently valuable and tries to carry this philosophy into each patient encounter. He has been thrilled to teach medical students, residents and APCs both in the outpatient and inpatient setting since 2018 and formally joined the Swedish Rural Training Program as Assistant Program Director in July 2024.

Dr. Wauters lives in Port Angeles with his wife, three daughters, and their pug Chloe. He is an avid bike commuter and regularly rides his bike to the clinic and hospital. In his free time, he enjoys being with his wife and daughters, camping, biking, trail running, parkour, yoga, cooking, reading and generally exploring the beautiful Olympic Peninsula he calls home.
