Meet Dr. Rachel Culleton

Naturopathic Physician & Pediatric Specialist

I’m a licensed naturopathic doctor (ND) in Washington State. I specialize in Pediatrics with an emphasis on reversing chronic disease and supporting children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD and spectrum disorders. You can see me in person in Bellingham or virtually if you live within Washington State!

I am passionate about providing you with the education and tools your family needs to make the best decisions around your health. I believe that wellness starts very early in life and it is important to address the physical, mental, and emotional aspects.

I work closely with you as a family to determine what wellness means to you. I will support you through the process of raising healthy, happy children that are free of chronic diseases, have strong immune systems, and balanced nervous systems.

I have a passion for improved Pediatric Wellness Exams, ADHD, spectrum disorders, vaccine education, and gut and immune health as it relates to eczema.

On a personal note, I grew up in Skagit Valley, moved to Seattle for 10 years before moving back in 2018. My husband and I have been married for almost 6 years, we have a very energetic 5 year old boy, and two very fluffy kitty sisters.

Patient Testimonials

We are so grateful to have found Dr. Culleton here in Bellingham! We began seeing her with our newborn, and now both of our daughters will be seeing her as their primary physician. She is thoughtful and caring and we feel like we’re building a true relationship with her, which we’re so grateful for. She helped us when she detected a strong heart murmur in our 1 month old, giving us personal calls and help to ensure we got everything setup with the specialists. She’s knowledgable and respectful and we’re glad to have her!

My daughter has been to more GI specialists than I can count. Over 8 years of appointments no one was able to tell us why her stomach was causing her so much pain after eating. But Dr. Culleton figured it out! She takes the time to truly listen to what is going on. We are so incredibly thankful to have found her! Thank you Dr. Culleton!

Momma to 13 year old

We self referred to Dr. Culleton when we couldn’t get answers for our medically complex 9.5yr old. Within 4 months of my daughters first visit, we had answers as to what has been going on our with our daughter for the past 9 years. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, compassionate and most of all…an excellent listener. She has had no issues sending off referrals for us, pondering all our never ending questions and honestly wanting what is best for us. She has made sure we know we are the most important part of our childs health care team. She is also a mom and fully understands “mothers instinct” which is so so helpful. Switching to her was the absolute best decision we’ve ever made!
