Family Medicine Physician

As a youth in India, Dr. Tsering Lhamo witnessed how few individuals had access to quality medical care. The disparities she observed inspired her to become a provider. She first trained in traditional Tibetan medicine at Tibetan Medical College and worked with personal physicians who served the Dalai Lama.

She went on to Portland State University in Oregon, where she earned a bachelor of science in microbiology/molecular biology. She earned her medical degree from the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle. Dr. Lhamo completed her residency through the Duluth Family Medicine Residency at the University of Minnesota.

As a provider, Dr. Lhamo believes in offering comprehensive care to patients, respecting their concerns, and communicating openly with them. She works with individuals of all ages and has a special interest in geriatrics and chronic disease management. She is proficient in Tibetan, Hindi, and Nepalese.

Dr. Lhamo has cared for underserved populations since she started studying medicine. Among other projects, she has volunteered at the Free Clinic of Southwest Washington, raised money for a water purification system in rural Eastern Tibet, advocated for homeless Seattle youth through Teen Feed, and raised funds for HIV prevention education and anti-retroviral medicines for Tibetan refugees.

In her spare time Dr. Lhamo enjoys reading, cooking, traveling, and exercising.
