Dr. Mona Fahoum

Naturopath

As a naturopathic family practitioner, Dr. Fahoum’s interests and specialties include nutrition, weight loss, digestive disorders and women’s health. Whether it is basic Primary Care, specific concerns or attaining elite performance, she meets each patient where they are in making dietary and lifestyle recommendations to better achieve success with their goals.

She views healing as a dynamic process, unique to each person, with different treatments appropriate for different patients. This philosophy allows her the flexibility to move easily between conventional and natural treatments.

Dr. Fahoum began her study in medicine at the University of Washington where she received her B.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology. After exploring the world of research as an undergraduate at the University of Washington, Dr. Fahoum realized that the key to your health is not adequately addressed in the laboratory. Rather, the key is to educate and help you understand, and apply, those changes to your unique life circumstance.

After U of W, she went on to study the science of natural medicine at Bastyr University, graduating in 2004 with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. Outside primary care practice, her work also includes public educational forums on naturopathic medicine as well as leading nutrition and weight loss classes for her patients. She is adjunct faculty at Bastyr University and NW Academy for the Healing Arts.

Professionally, Dr. Fahoum is president of her state organization, Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians (WANP). She and the board are actively working to expand knowledge and access to naturopathic primary care in the State of Washington.

Whatever free time there is left, Dr. Mona plays women’s soccer and can be found snowboarding at Stevens Pass whenever she is not with her new daughter!

Speck Health Philosophy

Dr. Speck treats the whole person and focuses on the longevity of the treatment. Her goal is not to simply treat the problem with medications or surgery, but to instead work with the patient to implement a healthy lifestyle and promote overall health. Dr. Speck identifies risks and when medically appropriate uses the known benefits of exercise and nutrition to help manage cardiovascular risks. She helps patients navigate the medical system to ensure the best and prompt care. Many of her patients have a worrisome cardiovascular family history and want to act preemptively versus reactively.  Dr. Speck is dedicated to working with the patient to aid them to be champions of their own health. Every step of the way, she will listen to you, she will gather information, and make a plan that works for you as you move forward together.
