Christoferson Holly MD2234 for web

Amy Wilkerson, MD

I was born in Tacoma, but spent the next three decades of my life outside of Washington. During that time I earned my medical degree and masters of public health at Oregon Health and Sciences University. I finally returned to Washington for family medicine residency training at Swedish First Hill. For the last 5+ years of my career, I have worked exclusively in post-acute and long term care, which has been a very professionally satisfying practice. I’ve returned to Swedish for the geriatric fellowship, to solidify my career as a geriatrician. My interests lie in transitions of care and medical direction in nursing homes. My goals of patient care are to add quality and value to each patient’s treatment plan. In my personal life, I love to be outdoors, play games, laugh, and have fun with my sons and husband.
