About Sky River Natural Health

Sky River Natural Health Building

Sky River Natural Health Center was founded by Dr. Brandy Rose Lipscomb in 2007 out of desire to bring affordable, safe health care options for the entire family to the Skykomish Valley. The business was relocated to its current home in 2013 with the goal of making your experience a serene and relaxing one. In early 2017, the practice changed ownership. Dr. Dominika Neary aims to carry on the healing environment that Dr. Lipscomb created. Dr. Dean Neary and Dr. Karen Yorgan will likely be coming out part time from their home base in Monroe in the near future. The reflexology path and herb garden are open to the public year-round. From the moment you walk in the door, you become a part of our family and your health is our #1 priority.

Our doctors can be your primary care providers or serve as team players in your integrative approach to health and wellness. We enjoy working with a broad range of acute or chronic health conditions.

Like Dr. Lipscomb used to say, our doctors don’t stand on one side of the fence or the other, instead we look into the conventional medical approaches and weigh the pros and cons of these with the more naturopathic treatment options like herbs, nutrients, and homeopathics to come up with a plan for your health that will be effective and manageable.

The staff at Sky River Natural Health play an integral role in the services you receive. They are just as passionate about your health as our doctors. To learn more about Sky River Natural Health’s wonderful team, please follow the link.

Our Doctors

Dominika Neary, ND

Dr. Dominika Neary received her Bachelor’s degree in Social Psychology from Western Washington University in Bellingham, in 2002. During her time at the university, she worked as a patient care representative for PeaceHealth Hospitals and discovered her passion for helping others find their path to wellness. She obtained her medical degree from Bastyr University, one of the world’s leading academic centers for naturopathic medicine, in 2008. Following graduation, she completed a prestigious year-long residency at Bastyr University’s teaching clinic, Bastyr Center for Natural Health. This training included clinical rotations at the Bastyr Center as well as community clinics across the Seattle area serving low income and minority patients in addition to teaching experience. Dr. Dominika currently serves as adjunct clinical faculty at Bastyr and is passionate about helping train future naturopathic doctors. She is a current member of the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians.

Careful listening and compassionate care are the hallmarks of Dr. Dominika’s practice. She is committed to helping her patients obtain their health goals and experience life without limitations. Always seeking to address the underlying cause of illness rather than suppressing symptoms, Dr. Dominika is dedicated to educating, empowering and accompanying patients on their journey towards optimal health. She enjoys collaborating with patients to create treatment plans that are simple and effective. Her philosophy is to “use the least force necessary” and she loves to laugh, finding humor to be one of the best medicines.

Dr. Dominika specializes in women’s health (menstrual concerns, fertility, menopause), digestive issues and detoxification. She practices naturopathic family medicine and welcomes everyone, regardless of age or medical condition. Dr. Dominika is happy to work with children, but prefers not to be their primary care doctor as she has no children from her own (aside from pretty awesome older step-kids and wonderful niece) and has not pursued specialized pediatric training. She has, however, received training in craniosacral and Scenar therapies.

Dr. Dominika lives in Monroe with her husband and love of her life, Dr. Dean. She enjoys outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, backpacking and learning to fish. Curling up with a good book and delicious coffee is her ultimate favorite past time. She’s fluent in Polish and spent the first 7 years of her life in Poland, landing in the United States after a 2-year stint in Italy. She has a passion for travel and little by little plans to explore the world.

Dr. Dean is also a current member of the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians.

Dr. Neary was a contributing author of the first ever “Textbook of Naturopathic Medicine” published by Elsevier Publishing. He has been interviewed numerous times on a wide variety of medical topics by both local and national electronic and print media sources.

Dr. Neary’s clinical passion lies in the art, science, and practice of the physical medicine modalities as well as the treatment of a variety of “endocrine” disorders. He is highly skilled in spinal and extremity manipulation, soft tissue evaluation/treatment, and numerous physiotherapy modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, NMES/TENS therapies, diathermy, low level laser therapy, and various hydrotherapies. He loves the opportunity to assist individuals who are struggling with the signs/symptoms associated with conditions/issues such as; hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue, menopause, low testosterone, hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), blood sugar disorders (diabetes), hypertension, and weight gain. Dr. Neary has also received training in the practice of various intravenous (IV) therapies and Scenar therapy.

Dr. Neary lives in Monroe with his wife, Dr. Dominika, and enjoys the simple pleasures of spending time with family and friends, as well as all of the activities the great outdoors has to offer. He is especially passionate about hunting, fishing, camping, and long rides on their Harley.

Karen Bajuk Yorgan, ND, LAc

Dr. Karen Yorgan, naturopathic physician, acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington in Oceanography. She spent several years doing scientific research at the university, and then enjoyed a successful career in software development, before returning to her first love: the pursuit of health through natural medicine. She received her degrees in naturopathy, acupuncture, and Chinese medicine from Bastyr University, and has been seeing patients since 2010.

Dr. Yorgan integrates physical medicine, acupuncture and Chinese philosophies into naturopathic treatment, taking a broad view to tenaciously find the root cause of each affliction, and then tailoring an approach fitted to each person's challenges. Dr. Yorgan is passionately committed to returning people to a state of health, where they can enjoy their lives fully. She specializes in treating people with chronic disease and pain, but welcomes patients of all ages and states of health.

Dr. Yorgan enjoys travel and exploring new cultures, and loves to cook. She enjoys sharing laughter and stories over a good meal with friends and family. She savors good coffee and good chocolate, and lives in Lake Forest Park with her wonderful husband, Lou.
