    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.

    Thanks,
    Kelvin

    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.
