He is board certified in Family Medicine with a Fellowship in Wilderness Medicine and is certified in Advanced Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. He has practiced in private Primary Care as well as Emergency and Urgent Care Medicine. With his background he has come to see that the effects of chronic disease are dramatic, and attempting to combat the symptoms and not the cause is often futile. With that understanding, Dr. Deakins chooses to focus on wellness through proactive and preventative evidence base medicine such as nutrition, health coaching, and innovative therapies which address the root cause of many health issues. Dr. Deakins enjoys an active lifestyle here in the Pacific Northwest spending his time with his family outdoors snowboarding, biking, running, hiking, camping and fly fishing. He believes that true wellness starts with pursuing those activities that create joy, movement, and health.
