About

Bio

Dr. Dall-Winther is a board certified Family Physician and has been in practice since 2007, following her training at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health. She spent 10 years in practice at Mayo Clinic, and a brief time at Essentia Health before embarking on private practice. Although her greatest roles are being a Family Physician and Mother to her children - Hunter, 22; Michael, 19; Ryan, 18; Jonah, 15; Isabel, 14: Natalie, 11 - she also has great love for Brandi Carlile, her music & attending concerts (lots of different music/concerts, actually!), gardening, scrapbooking, traveling, and film. In addition to her six children and 30 chickens, she also has 2 cats, 9 dwarf hamsters and a mini Goldendoodle named Penelope (“Penny”) Eve Dall-Winther, who is an absolute joy!

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
