“I love taking care of children. Kids are funny, smart, and brave — I think we should all strive to tap into our childhood selves. I strongly believe in evidence-based medicine, including vaccinations for all patients, as well as patient-focused care. Communication is the key to success in doctor-patient relationships and parents are at the center of that relationship along with their children. I’m a big believer in making doctor’s visits less scary for kids! My goal is to be approachable and help work towards answers for families.

“Allergy/Immunology is an incredibly interesting, evolving clinical field. My job is to stay on top of scientific advancements to help families navigate and understand all of their options. I enjoy working on the challenges my patients are facing to help alleviate their frustrations and improve their quality of life.”

In her free time, Dr. Rath can be found exploring the Pacific Northwest. She loves building Lego sets, trying new recipes, and rooting for the Florida Gators and Kansas City Chiefs with her boyfriend and their dog Luna.
