Video: Meet Myra Horiuchi, MD, Family Medicine with obstetrics
- Hi, my name is Myra Horiuchi, and I practice family medicine with obstetrics at The Polyclinic. I'm the youngest of a group of six siblings. One of my older sisters is a nurse and she inspired me to go into healthcare. And also when I was in high school, my father became ill and I spent a lot of time with him while he was in the hospital. I got to see how his doctors helped to take care of him. And it became really important to me to not only wanna take care of people from the medical standpoint, but also how their health fit into their families and their lives when they're ill. I grew up in Hawaii and then I did my undergrad in California and ended up going to med school in New York, which was a great training ground because you see everything when you're in New York. Initially, I wanted to be a pediatrician because honestly all the tables and chairs and things are my height and kids like me. But I ended up doing a little bit of everything throughout my training in a certain order, and the last thing that I did was family medicine. I came to Seattle to do my residency, and ever since then, I've been practicing here. I'm passionate about taking care of people's families and also about their quality of life. I think it's really important to integrate how your life affects your health and vice versa. You can live to 100 and not be healthy or not be comfortable and happy with the way you're doing, or you can live slightly shorter than that but have a much fuller life. So I really think it's important to look at a patient's richness of life and quality of life as part of how you take care of them. When I'm not working, I like to go hiking. I used to rock climb and I think I'm gonna get into doing that again, and paddle board. I actually take my dogs paddle boarding. And I like to spend with family and friends, and I love to cook.

Video: Meet Daniel Smith, MD, Urologist
- Hi, I'm Dan Smith. I'm a Urologist here at The Polyclinic. I went into medicine for the same reason I would hope anyone would go into medicine for just the desire to help people. You get to do something different every day. You're not sitting behind a desk all the time and you can, you know, actually see tangible ways that you're helping people. I'm originally from the Seattle area. I left the area to go to medical school at the University of Colorado in Denver, Colorado and then completed a residency in Urology at the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis. As a Urologist, I see patients 18 and up with issues of the genital urinary tract. So that means anything from the kidneys, ureter, bladder on out of the body. I think my approach to patient care is to, for a lot of things, let the patient drive a lot of their care. Some things are straightforward, like if someone has a big ureteral stone that needs to be treated, but a lot of things in urology are subjective and what may be very bothersome to one person not so bothersome to someone else. So really, taking in someone's values of what's important to them and how they wanna proceed down the road to potentially observation medication surgery. Just trying to really understand the entire patient before really making any sort of decision. Outside of work I like to spend time with my family, my wife, dog, cat, two toddlers. I do a lot of running. We like to get up to the mountains or out to the islands just spend time enjoying the outdoors.

- I'm Jesse Lindsay, and I'm an integrative pediatrician at the Polyclinic. At the Polyclinic, I'm gonna start a integrative medicine consult practice. People 25 and under coming into get a more holistic approach to whatever problem or condition or concern that they are dealing with. Integrative medicine is really the bridge or the melding of traditional medicine, as well as complementary or alternative medicine using really evidence informed practices. When a patient comes to see me, my goal is to listen carefully to their current concerns, help address nutrition, lifestyle choices. I'm able to recommend herbs or supplements. And then if, say, something along the lines of acupuncture or massage therapy or hypnotherapy would be beneficial, I'm able to make that referral. I love the people that I work with at the Polyclinic. I really like my colleagues. I really like our staff and just hardworking spirit of our group. I am really excited and grateful for the opportunity to bring integrative medicine consultation to the Polyclinic. And I think that for kids, this is such an important service because no parent wants to put their child on medications. And if we can do things more naturally and talk about diet and sleep and mindfulness and relaxation techniques, I think that'll be a real benefit to our patients. When I'm not working, I enjoy being in nature with my two kids and husband, and exploring the natural world.
