Christopher M. Valley, ND.

Dr. Valley graduated from Eastern Washington University with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology. With the initial intent of pursuing a conventional medical degree, Dr. Valley decided to pursue a degree in Naturopathic Medicine because of a keen interest in clinical nutrition, exercise science, and preventive medicine. He then graduated from The National College of Naturopathic Medicine (the oldest accredited Naturopathic medical school in the U.S.) with a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine in 2004.

Dr. Valley practiced in family medicine for 7 years with a focus on Sports Medicine, Inflammatory/Autoimmune disorders, and Endocrinology. He began practicing at Arthritis Northwest in 2011. Dr. Valley's approach is to combine conventional western medicine with well researched natural medicine.
