Dr. Cameron O’Connell is a Naturopathic primary care doctor with interests in longevity, endocrinology, sexual health and cardiology. Dr. O’Connell hails from Alaska and spent much of her childhood improving her microbiome by playing in the forest and foraging for snacks among the edible flora. Having had variable life experiences – from working at a ski resort in Montana to acting as the Assistant Medical Director for the Engine2 Immersion Programs in 2016 and 2017 - she loves meeting and helping people with a variety of backgrounds and concerns.
Dr. O'Connell graduated with a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine in 2015 and completed her subsequent residency with TrueNorth Health Center. Her time at TrueNorth allowed her to mentor with Dr. Peter Sultana, M.D.; Dr. Michael Klaper, M.D.; Anthony Lim, M.D.; Dr. Alan Goldhamer, D.C. and Dr. Csilla Veress, N.D. She is certified in water-fasting through the International Association of Hygienic Physicians. She is currently serving as the Assistant Medical Director at the Engine2 Immersion Experiences. Her undergraduate degree is a B.A. obtained from George Fox University in Writing/Literature with a Biology Minor. Dr. O’Connell is confident that these two degrees sum her up well as an individual.
One of Dr. O’Connell’s objectives is to meet the patient where they are at and help them to further their own health goals. She believes that the patient is an active partner in determining future wellness and it is Dr. O’Connell’s job to help them cultivate and create both patient- driven preventative medicine and client-motivated treatment for chronic conditions. She believes that a quote from William Osler underlines her clinical approach: “The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.”
