Here at Link Community Clinic, we optimize primary care by combining conventional and natural medicine to maximize benefit while reducing harm. Our practice is guided by scientific evidence and by personal connection. We take joy in caring for patients of all body sizes, abilities, ages, races, and genders.
We strongly believe everyone should have access to this type of care, which is why we are the only naturopathic doctors in Pierce County to accept Medicaid.
