Spring 2019: A Voyage of Discovery
Physician

Megan Reitz

Megan Reitz is a board-certified family physician who lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  She hails from Baltimore, Maryland and went to college at Yale, where she majored in American literature. After college she spent time in San Francisco working, hanging out and making sure she really wanted to be a doctor.

Megan went to medical school at Stanford where she decided to become a family doctor, a discipline in which she could use her head, her hands and her heart to take care of her patients. She did her residency training in Seattle and worked in a community health clinic for several years taking care of a diverse underserved patient population with many immigrants from Latin America.

For the past ten years, she has had a busy practice at Group Health Cooperative, now Kaiser Permanente and particularly enjoys getting to know her patients over time. She practices full spectrum family medicine and takes care of patients across the life span, from newborns to teens to older adults, with an interest in psychiatry, cardiovascular issues and women’s health, including obstetrics.  She has been voted one of Seattle’s Top Docs by Seattle Met magazine for several years. She loves bicycles, hiking, baking pies, playing soccer and watching baseball.

Megan is looking forward to her first voyage with Semester at Sea and will sail with her husband Geoff, a music producer, and their kids Hazel and Atticus who are avid  card and board game sharks (you’ve been warned). Megan’s family shares her love of travel and is looking forward to trying new foods and meeting new people.
