Birch Bay Family Medicine

Joseph Banham, PA-C

I grew up in Whatcom County before moving to Seattle, where I earned my undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Washington. I then moved out to Durham, NC to attend Duke University, where I received a Master of Health Sciences degree and completed my physician assistant training.

I love family medicine because I get to see patients of all ages and work together with them throughout their lifetime. I enjoy building connections with patients and teaming with them to achieve their optimal health. I believe teamwork, communication, and trust are key elements to providing quality medical care.

It is so great to be back home in the Pacific Northwest. When I am not working, you will find me out walking with my wife and son, playing sports, or hanging out with people from my church.
