The UHC: One of Seattle’s Most Established Natural Health Clinics

Dr. Patrick Donovan has been practicing medicine since 1983

Our History

The University Health Clinic (The UHC) was founded in 1983, in Seattle’s University district. In 2015, we grew into a larger space at the Seattle Healing Arts Center, in the Roosevelt neighborhood.  We provide patient-centered, holistic healthcare. Over the last thirty years the UHC has helped pioneer the establishment of natural medicine as a recognized element of the integrated healthcare model in the greater Seattle area.

We are a primary care clinic focusing on prevention and optimal wellness. We work hard to find the most effective, least invasive treatments for you while integrating all forms of conventional and natural medicine. Our naturopathic physicians, chiropractor and other providers are credentialed with most insurance companies and regularly utilize each other’s specialties and knowledge to better serve you and your family.


When you enter our reception area, you’ll feel welcomed into our clinic family. We believe in community and, at The University Health Clinic, you are part of our community.  We invite you to relax and have a cup of tea when you arrive for a visit with a provider.  Schedule your appointment today.

The Patient Wins

At The UHC, you will experience the “country doctor” personal approach with all the benefits of “big city” science and technology.  Our naturopathic physicians use herbs, supplements, homeopathy and prescriptive medicines, integrating traditional care with modern medicine in order to provide the best care possible.  We believe all forms of medicine have their place and value.
