Dr. Donald Spears


My name is Donald Spears and I am a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist. During my time in medical school, my notion of health was formed by developing a deep understanding of the inner workings of our intricate organ processes and how they reflect and reciprocate our relationship with our external environment. What started out as a four-year naturopathic degree quickly turned into a compressed six-year dual degree, which included a four-year Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine. Following graduation, I completed a one-year residency in order to further my understanding and knowledge of Chinese medicine.

My medical education journey has seen many twists and turns, from the analytical lab- and research-driven approach of functional medicine to the intuitively-driven spiritual science of anthroposophical medicine. From primary (disease-focused) care to health-care, my education has encompassed Western and Eastern medical systems and has afforded me the expertise to act as your guide, so that together, we can restore your health.

While I was trained as a primary care provider in the state of Oregon, I now practice medicine with an emphasis on health promotion through the holistic lenses provided by naturopathic and Chinese medicine. As a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist, I have been trained to read and decipher the imbalances within the body communicated through the constellation of signs and symptoms presented during times of dis-ease, and by taking in the whole picture, a treatment plan is tailored to you as an individual, and not your disease or condition. After determining a treatment approach, I utilize minimally invasive modalities including diet, lifestyle changes, herbal medicine, acupuncture (including non-insertive needling), moxibustion and bodywork to guide you back to a state of health. I am fully committed to serving you and our community in the restoration of health and sustained wellbeing.

I invite you to come on in and share your story.
