With a fascination for the journey between illness and health, and an appreciation for the incredible capacity our bodies have to heal, Dr. Phillips has been offering holistic primary care to children and families for over a decade. He received his Naturopathic medical training at National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, OR, completing the doctoral program in 2003. Dr Phillips’ practice offers a holistic and compassionate approach to family medicine, adult and pediatric care, integrating the most useful tools of western medicine with the wisdom and depth of Naturopathic medicine.
Before completing undergraduate studies at Portland State University, and then attending Naturopathic medical school, Dr. Phillips worked as an EMT on a wildland fire crew, which was an introduction to his interest in medicine. He is an avid skier and snowboarder, enjoys mountain biking and soccer, and delights in the beauty of central Oregon with his wife and two kids. He has a passion for travel and adventure and enjoys spending time aboard his sailboat in the summer months.
Dr Phillips has been a musician most of his life, which in many ways has also informed his work as a physician. His belief that music and arts in general are an integral part of health and wellness is manifest in the mission of Hawthorn Healing Arts Center. The center holds the vision to bring the worlds of art, music and creativity and primary care medicine under the same roof.
Dr. Phillips is the medical and creative director of Hawthorn Healing Arts Center, and is actively developing and facilitating educational and inspirational programs for local community members and businesses.
“Great place to go for acupuncture, to see a naturopathic doctor, massage and special clinics. I have been a client of Chelsea and Josh Philips for years and can not recommend them enough.”
“I want to personally thank Dr. Josh Phillips for educating our family on health. I feel bad for not going to see him more often and supporting the practice, but he keeps our family and grandchildren so healthy that I can count on one hand how many times we have been there in 5 years! The biggest blessing was finding out what our grandson was allergic to in his diet and now his asthma is COMPLETELY under control. Thank you Dr. Phillips and all of your staff…we love you!”
