Brian Ostler, MD

I earned my medical degree in 2020 from the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas. I completed my residency at Valley Medical Center in Renton, Wash. in 2023. During that time, I also graduated from the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine in Residency program through the University of Arizona. Through that program I received additional training in nutrition, exercise, supplements, and complementary alternative medicine. I also prioritized holistic obstetric care, and loved working with parents to bring more than 100 babies into the world.

I am passionate about full-spectrum medicine and offer a variety of procedures including vasectomies, colposcopies, and ultrasound guided injections, as well as other standard skin and gynecological procedures. I prioritize patient education and informed consent and enjoy working with my patients to empower them on their individual healthcare journeys. I am fluent in Spanish, and am thrilled when I can offer healthcare in a patient’s primary language.

Drawn to Whatcom County for its diverse beauty and family friendly vibe, my wife and I enjoy biking, hiking, playing board games, and reading books from our local library with our six children. When we’re not busy with soccer or jiu-jitsu practice, I enjoy cooking and baking.

Dr. Ostler is proud to provide OB care. When OB care is provided by a family physician, it is unique in many ways! Learn more.
