Dr. Sterling Maximo, ND, EAMP (Acupuncture)


Dr. Maximo is excited to blend the wisdom of Eastern and Western perspectives to offer the patient the best, most effective treatment options.

She focuses on the patient as a whole person and devotes the time and energy needed to get to the root cause. She embraces the doctor patient relationship, educating and empowering the patient to become actively involved in their own healing.

Dr. Maximo earned a bachelor’s degree in Asian Studies at Pomona College. She has lived in China, Honduras, and Mexico and loves to travel. This exploration of different cultures ultimately led to her explore different systems of medicine, and she promptly sought out a dual degree at Bastyr University where she studied both Naturopathic Medicine and Acupuncture.

Dr. Maximo treats the whole family, from newborns to great-grandparents. In addition to primary care and family medicine, she also has more specific interests including pediatrics, women’s health, fertility, preconceptive care, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, environmental medicine, clean living, migraines, and chronic disease.

When not practicing medicine, she can be found hiking in the Cascades with her family. Dr. Maximo is accepting new patients and is available at Naturopathic Family Medicine on Tuesdays, Thursday evenings, and Friday afternoons.
