About

Dr Heather Krantz

Dr. Heather Krantz is a board-certified medical doctor in both obstetrics/gynecology and integrative medicine.  She completed her medical degree, internship, and residency training at the University of Kansas. At Paloma Health, her focus is on treating patients with hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and Hashimoto's disease (an autoimmune condition attacking the thyroid gland).

Over the past three decades, Dr. Krantz has practiced as a health care provider in health maintenance organizations (HMO), private practice, and community health settings where she began to see a large disconnect between traditional medicine and true wellness. She completed the Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona with Dr. Andrew Weil

Dr. Krantz is passionate about integrative medicine which considers the whole person and uses an intelligent combination of traditional and alternative therapeutic approaches to develop treatment plans that help patients achieve optimal health and healing. She treats thyroid patients using an integrative approach to stabilize thyroid levels and reduce symptoms of hypothyroidism.

Over the last decade, Dr. Heather Krantz has practiced consultative integrative medicine and taught mindfulness-based stress reduction, mindful self-compassion classes as well as mindfulness workshops.

Dr. Krantz lives in the mountains in beautiful Bend, Oregon with her husband and their two whippets. When she is not treating patients with thyroid disease, she loves to downhill ski, camp, hike, cook, write, and read. She is also the author of six books for young children about mindfulness, compassion, sleep, and grief.

's Reviews

A
Initial visit was thorough, plan was discussed to move forward. She is a wonderful listener and was able to formulate a plan quickly. She explained test results and optimal levels as well as contributing factors. I felt heard and understood. I feel confident we are on the right track optimizing my treatment.
M
If I could give 10 stars, I would. I needed someone to listen to me and he did. We talked in detail about the science behind the decisions made to increase my thyroid medication dosage. It was helpful to have my symptoms both heard and addressed. It's been about 2 months since we doubled my meds and I feel like my old self again. It's so amazing to have the energy to do things again, to not have constant joint pain, to have my hair stop falling out. I'm so profoundly grateful.
B
I will be recommending this service to all my friends and family.___
D
Paloma has been nothing short of a godsend, especially during this pandemic. I was able to test myself at home and receive results from the safety of my home. The video appointments are very convenient and I can�t say enough wonderful things about Paloma overall. The membership is definitely worth it and there is always someone to answer your questions if something should arise
R
Excellent experience - better than my current PCP. Highly recommend! Dr. Krantz listens to my concerns and provides very detailed explanation on things. She cares about me as a person and my well-being, and doesn't dismiss me by my numbers.
