    Default Looking for a “remote lifestyle friendly” physician

    Does anyone have suggestions for a physician in the Wasilla / Anchorage area that understands living remote?

    With the passing of Dr. Yates in Talkeetna we have been unable to find a physician understands living remote.

    By that I mean a Dr. that knows if you get sick or hurt you can’t just hop in the car and run in for an office visit. I always like Dr. Yates but I’m just now starting to realize how lucky we were to have him.

    Any suggestions? Email me if you don't want to post names.

    I have found Dr Sahlstrom at Heritage Family Medicine in Wasilla to be a quality physician. I discussed my needs when deploying over seas and he worked with me. As a civilian contractor at the time I didn't have access to the same deployed healthcare that the military does so having larger than standard quantities of a few medications on hand was necessary. I certainly can't speak for his understanding of remote life but I would encourage you to call and talk with him to see if he would be a good fit for you and your family.
