Family doctors in Zillah
Jonathan Davenport, MD grew up in the Lower Valley and is a family doctor treating patients at Zilllah Family Medicine.
Medical school: University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA. Residency: Central Washington Family Medicine
What inspired you to choose medicine? I knew there was a need for physicians, and I knew that was a way for us to move back to the Valley and raise our kids here.
Why did you choose your specialty? I didn't really consider anything else because I knew I would get to spend the day with people.
What is your philosophy of care? Care is a partnership. I present the patient with evidenced-based options so they can make informed decisions.
What do you like about the Yakima Valley? I grew up in Wapato. The biggest thing for me is being around family, and my wife's family because she's from here, too.
What do you like to do outside of work? I like to spend time with my family, cooking, biking, hiking, hunting and fishing.
