Dr. Kimberly Windstar’s previous experience as a special education teacher offers her medical practice a distinctive quality of patience and understanding. “I strive to create a space of unconditional acceptance for my patients. I understand that it requires trust and time to truly treat the whole person and find the deepest cause of a patient’s health issues.” Dr. Windstar’s areas of expertise include:

●  Women’s health and advanced gynecological procedures
●  Breast cancer and gynecological cancers (uterine, cervical, ovarian)
●  Treating cervical dysplasia (abnormal paps and HPV)
●  Thyroid conditions
●  Acute infections

She uses a variety of treatments in her practice, including energetic medicines such as homeopathy and drainage therapy, botanical medicine, hydrotherapy, counseling, and nutritional supplementation. When needed, she judiciously uses prescription medication. An expert in women’s health, Dr. Windstar provides women’s annual exams and gynecological biopsies.

A full-time faculty member at NUNM, Dr. Windstar supervises student interns on several clinical rotations at the NUNM Health Centers; and teaches courses in palpation, clinical case presentation, gynecology lab, clinical physical diagnosis, gynecology and advanced gynecology electives. Her love of teaching has meant developing unique clinical opportunities for current students and graduates of the naturopathic program at NUNM. In 2005, she helped establish the first women’s health residency at NUNM and has since created many new mentorship opportunities for third- and fourth-year medical students.

A practicing naturopathic physician for 20+ years, Dr. Windstar has a love of dogs, enjoys gardening, and spending time with her husband.
