Anacortes Family Medicine (AFM) recently bid a very fond “farewell” to the beloved Dr. Oliver Stalsbroten who served 35 years at the clinic. Dr. Stalbroten’s retirement – along with Dr. Charles Blackadar leaving to practice in Alaska – has raised concern from our patients regarding future care.

AFM has contracted two locums physicians to care for patients at this time. Recruiting has been underway for several months to find permanent replacement providers for Drs. Stalsbroten and Blackadar.

Our patients can be assured that we have their needs handled. Our providers have full access to patients’ records and understand their needs and history of care.

One of the locums physicians, Tari Roche DO most recently provided family medicine at Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics. In addition, she is an Assistant Clinical Professor at Northwestern School of Osteopathic Medicine and board certified in family practice.

David Herrington MD, practiced for more than 30 years at Auburn Regional Medical Center in Auburn, WA, and more recently in locums and urgent-care settings throughout the region, including Summit Pacific Medical Center, Elma, WA; Othello Community Hospital in Othello, WA; and Overlake Hospital in Issaquah, WA.
