About Dr. Waite
Dr. Rhea Waite has long had a love of natural medicine. Growing up in a family of herbalists in the countryside of Vermont some of her earliest memories are of witnessing the magical power of plants healing wounds and illness.
After moving to Oregon in 2009, she graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine with a doctorate in Naturopathic medicine and a Masters of Acupuncture. While there Dr. Waite completed a 4-year internship in family medicine, pediatrics, women’s health, physical medicine, and acupuncture. She regularly continues her education in women’s health, primary care and aesthetic medicine.
Dr. Waite’s clinic, Wild Heart Medicine is an integrative family medicine practice in SE Portland where she combines her love of natural medicine with her passion for helping individuals of all ages live healthy, happy lives. In addition to family care Dr. Waite enjoys using her inside-out, whole bodied, approach to aesthetics with platelet-rich plasma, natural fillers and botox to help people look and feel their best.
When not in the office, Dr. Waite enjoys time with her two wildlings and husband at their home in the gorge where she can most likely be found tending garden or being creative in the kitchen.
