Best wishes to Dr. Gavareski and Dr. Pederson in their retirement!

Apr 27, 2018

We bid a fond farewell to two of our long-time physicians this spring, Dr. David Gavareski at Family Health Associates in Bellingham and Dr. Bruce Pederson at Birch Bay Family Medicine.

Dr. Gavareski enjoyed 30 years of caring for patients at FHA. He is looking forward to spending more time with his kids and grandkids, traveling, and maybe even relaxing a little!


Dr. Pederson started at Lynden Family Medicine in 1980, then moved his practice to Birch Bay in 1999. He looks forward to spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren, and enjoying more time for trips to the gym and reading some good books!


Thank you for your dedicated service to your patients!
