Bellingham Family Medicine

Bellingham Family Medicine is the best choice for you and your family's health care needs!

Bellingham Family Medicine is the family practice office of Dr. John Nuetzmann.  We are quite different than the corporate medical systems that have consolidated the majority of medical care.  Our office is comfortable and relaxing, not cold and institutional.  We are small and personable and woven into the fabric of our community.  We aren't leaving anytime soon!  We have zero staff or doctor turnover.      

Like Bellingham Family Medicine itself, this website is completely managed independently by our very small, local staff.  And because our focus is on our patients, this site may need some updates or have some broken links.  Please contact us if you have any questions about the website.  Check out the Office Technology link to learn more about our comfortable, yet high tech office.

Patient Portal:  The long awaited update to the patient portal has arrived!  If you used the old patient portal before July 1, 2014, you will need to sign up again.  In order to access, we need to have your email and send you an invitation.  Once you set up your account, you will be able to access your medical information  Visit for more information, or call us.  It much better if we send you the invitation rather than signing up yourself on the website. 
Insurance Updates:  We accept most insurances.  We are a "preferred provider" for Group Health, United Healthcare, Regence, Premera, Tricare, and most other insurances.  If you sign up for insurance through and qualify for Washington Apple Health, be sure to pick Molina Healthcare.  Generally, you will default to a plan we don't accept, but it is easy to change to our preferred Apple plan, Molina.  We welcome current and retired US service men, women, and their families!  We welcome WWU, BTC, and WCC students!
Twitter?  Yes, we are on Twitter!  Sometimes we will put out important clinic info via Twitter (eg status on snow days, etc).  Emphasis on the "sometimes".  If you know how to Twitter, then find us at @bhamfamilymedic 

Flu Update:  Flu shots for 2017/2018 have arrived and are available for everyone over age 18.  We expect pediatric flu shots to arrive 9/26/17.  Please call to set up an quick appointment!

Holiday Hours:  We will be closed on the following days:  Thanksgiving (11/22-26/2017), Christmas (12/25/17), and New Years Day (1/1/2018).  On these days Dr. Nuetzmann or a call partner will be available for emergency calls, but the clinic will not be open.
