Biography

Dr. Everson specializes in Family Medicine and Preventive Medicine, allowing her to care for individuals from birth across the lifespan, and allowing her to focus on all of the factors that influence health beyond modern medical intervention, including preventive measures such as vaccination, counseling regarding wellness and health maintenance, and health screening tools.

She understands that health is determined by much more than traditional western medicine, and that factors such as our physical environment, the food we eat, our physical activity, the work we do, our family and social connections, our housing, our safety, and our childhood environment including exposure to stress and trauma, determine our health and health behaviors across the lifespan.

In her free time Dr. Everson enjoys spending time with her family, backpacking, gardening, homebrewing, reading modern fiction, running, and community band.

Patient Comments

  • Sep 08, 2019

    Teresa Everson was lovely, and my experience once I got in to see her was great. And she was thorough. And I would say the only downfall is that perhaps she's a bit too busy because the wait to get in to see her, they were running about 40 minutes behind. And I hadn't planned for that in, throughout my day. So that was a bit unexpected. However, once I did get in to see her, I did not feel rushed in any way, shape, or form, and she was perfectly lovely.

  • Sep 05, 2019

    Dr. Everson is very caring and very thorough and I have already recommended her to 2 people who now go to her.

    I have to say Dr. Everson's the best doctor I've ever been to in my life. Not only is she great doctor, she's a great listener, caring, kind, always positive and even with my negative bad attitude that I going with sometimes cause of the pain I suffer, I walk out with a smile. She makes me feel loved. I matter to her. And I... I've just never have found that anywhere. I love her. I will never change doctors. I would follow her wherever she went.

    Yes, Dr. Everson is very extremely professional doctor. She also recognizes the individuality of a human being and really has one of the best bedside manners of any doctor that I've ever seen in my life and I'm 64 and I happen to be taking care of my brother who is brain injured and he's 52. So I very much appreciate her and the way that she is attentive to her patient.

Thank you.

    She is great at listening and watching but feel like exam is not thorough and more concerned with student performance than my health.

  • Jun 07, 2019

    She?s a great listener, has genuine concern for my well-being, and I always feel heard. She has a great bedside manner, is funny and practical, and doesn?t waste time. She also values my input, which can be rare with doctors. She?s fantastic.

  • May 16, 2019

    The only issue that I have with this provider is how long it takes to get in to see her. She's always running about anywhere from a half an hour to 45 minutes behind when it comes time for your appointment.

    One of the best characteristics of a physician is the ability to listen. Theresa Eversen excels. She always makes me feel valued as a patient, trusts my ability to identify critical needs while asking pertinent questions and reassuring me, and provides me with the information I need to improve my health. I have recommended her and the practice to others.
