[VIDEOS] Mason Health has released new videos in the “Meet the Providers” series. These new videos feature Dr. Benjamin May, DO; Dr. Trevor Kwan, DO; Katie Aldrich, PMHNP; and Vanessa Cray, PMHNP.
Individual videos are below.
Dr. Benjamin May, DO
Dr. May grew up in Washington and completed medical school at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences in Yakima in 2017. He finished his residency through the Providence St. Peter Family Medicine Chehalis Rural Training Program. Dr. May trained specifically in a rural medicine residency because he wanted to be able to understand and best serve communities in rural areas. He strongly believes that with patient-centered and evidence-based care, people can achieve better health and happiness in the long term. Dr. May has special interest in treating the entire family and also can use osteopathic manipulation to treat musculoskeletal and sports injuries. Away from medicine, he enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, cycling, soccer, anything outdoors, and listening to and making music with the guitar and piano.
Dr. Trevor Kwan, DO
Dr. Kwan was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and is excited to be back. He completed his medical training at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich., and finished a family medicine residency in Olympia at Providence St. Peter Hospital. Dr. Kwan enjoys practicing multidisciplinary team medicine that is evidence-based and patient-centered. He also believes osteopathic manipulation is a valuable tool and adjunct to treatment plans. When not practicing medicine, Dr. Kwan enjoys many activities, such as travelling, the outdoors, but above all else getting on the ice to play hockey.
