Susan J. Baumgaertel, MD FACP

Virtual Consultant, Patient Advocate, Menopause Blogger

About

Dr. Susan Baumgaertel has hung up her stethoscope after 25 years of clinical practice in internal medicine and now owns a novel medical consultation business, myMDadvocate. She serves patients in WA state as their virtual physician advocate, guide, partner, coach, resource, navigator and educator. Common topics include aging with intent, preventive care, menopause, chronic diseases, autoimmune conditions, weight management, behavioral health, cancer and survivorship support, caregiver stress, coping with chronic pain, and referral advocacy. Dr. Baumgaertel also serves as an ally to primary care and specialty physicians and surgeons by helping to “offload” more thorough and deep-dive discussions with patients on medical issues and navigational concerns, a service that our current strained healthcare system often cannot support in a timely manner.

Parallel to her professional services she maintains her passion project website MenopauseMenu which offers nourishing support for menopause and beyond. This site offers science-based health information, balanced with a holistic focus on personal well-being. All are invited to improve individual empowerment, reinforce sustainable life balance, and build nourishing paths to feeling healthy and well.

Her upcoming book The Menopause Mosaic will be a great resource for everyone interested in all things menopause!
