Dr. Paul M. Despres, ND

Dr. Paul is a compassionate healer whose interest in medicine began at age 12 with a series of severe joint pain conditions that sparked his curiosity in the cause and cure of disease. After high school he enrolled in the Health Sciences Scholars Program at the University of Michigan where he completed his medical school requirements and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish in 2008.

To complement his modern, standardized medical education at the University of Michigan, Dr. Paul enrolled at Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA to study the root cause of disease, how to prevent disease, how to use natural remedies, and how to use his hands to heal. In 2016, Dr. Paul graduated from Bastyr University with a solid foundation in basic sciences and clinical experience to begin giving back to his local community. Dr. Paul splits his time between the Green Leaf Health Care Clinic and serving as the Executive Director of Integrative Care Outreach, a non-profit that provides 100% free, low-barrier care to those experiencing homelessness and/or extreme poverty in King County. He strongly believes healthcare is a human right and is actively devising a new community care outreach model to address health inequity and the opioid epidemic. He aims to become a leading expert in chronic pain management and making holistic medicine easily available to all.

Dr. Paul welcomes you to visit him at Green Leaf Health Care, so he can help you achieve optimal health and wellness.
