TESTIMONIALS

Dr. Andrew Simon and staff provided an inviting yet professional environment to receive care in. I appreciated his straight forward approach to my health. I was able to get my questions answered without feeling rushed like with many doctors and his answers were knowledgable but easy to understand. In addition, Dr. Simon was able to provide me a dietary plan to help me improve my energy and feel less inflamed and he didn’t overwhelm me with supplements either. What was really cool was during my visit, I had mentioned I had this weird kink in my neck for a week and he was able adjust my neck and back! I really appreciate the integrated approach Dr. Simon takes.

BIOGRAPHY

Aside from being the founder of Rebel Med NW, Dr. Simon is also adjunct supervising physician for the teaching clinic Bastyr Center for Natural Health in Seattle, WA. As an alum of Bastyr University, Dr. Simon makes it his mission to teach the new generations of student Naturopathic Physicians. He oversees the Mind Body Medicine shifts and the Physical Medicine shifts at BCNH. Additionally, he assists in didactic teaching in the Physical Medicine, Clinical Medicine, Mind-Body Medicine, and Business/Practice Management classes at Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA.

FINDING HIS WAY HERE

Dr. Andrew Simon grew to love holistic health at an early age while playing soccer and running track. Through these activities, he discovered how important and effective it was to take care of his body through regular exercise and a nutritious diet. This led him to study and graduate from Western Washington University in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science/Kinesiology. During his studies, he interned with chiropractors in Bellingham and found a new way to take care of the body through structural fitness and spinal manipulations, leading to an interest in chiropractic medicine.

His interest in chiropractic medicine evolved into pursuing a path in Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University. Bastyr allowed him greater access to tools such as cognitive behavioral therapy, biofeedback techniques, nutrition counseling, and a comprehensive education in herbs and supplements. In addition, Bastyr also trained him in the appropriate and optimal use of pharmaceuticals, and training in how to provide spinal manipulation/physical medicine care.

HIS HEALING PHILOSOPHY

He finds that his patients appreciate that as a primary care physician, he still uses a diverse set of skills to address most common ailments. However, Dr. Simon understands his limitations and how to practice safe medicine, so he refers to other specialists for auxiliary medical care as appropriate. Since starting his practice in Ballard in 2015, his team at Rebel Med NW has grown exponentially to include a diverse and talented clinical staff.

Beyond the “First do no harm” oath that all doctors must take, Dr. Andrew Simon also embodies the naturopathic Foundations of Health.  This means that he begins with the least invasive and most common sense approaches first. His favorite approach is to begin with balancing the nervous system to encourage the body to heal naturally, leading him to specialize in Biofeedback. By helping people learn to manage their own health independently through nervous system regulation, he sees how it improves their ability to recover from injuries or illnesses, and helps remove barriers to exercising, eating well, and decreasing stress.
