Dr. Sunita Iyer, ND, LM

I have been a graduate and doctoral level educator for the past 7 years at Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA and am excited to have joined the team at UW Bothell. Teaching is my passion in the clinical, classroom, online, as well patient care arena. My background and primary professional interest is women's and pediatric health, having started in Boston, WA and working in the public health sector. Currently I am a full-time naturopathic family physician and midwife providing well-woman, well-child, and complete family care. My areas of clinical expertise are pediatrics, women's and adolescent health, natural fertility management and family planning, and therapeutic nutrition & exercise. I am also the Clinical Director and founder of an integrative clinic in Kirkland, WA that serves as a teaching clinic for students in a variety of medical and healthcare training programs as well as hosting an accredited residency program. I look forward to seeing you in class, face-to-face and online!


Although not currently conducting research, Sunita speaks locally and nationally at conferences for the professional development of naturopathic physicians, midwives, and perinatal providers. Topics from this year include Immunizations in Pregnancy and Perinatal Patients, Endocrine Disruption and Reproduction, and Pediatric Anxiety. Her interest is specifically in making the integrative model of health care more accessible, specifically in perinatal and pediatric care, and is working toward grant funding for a community clinic that would do just that in Seattle, WA.
