MEET THE OODLE TEAM
Dr. Elizabeth Eaman
Dr. Elizabeth Eaman
Dr. Eaman graduated from University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, Michigan and completed Family Medicine residency at Tacoma Family Medicine in Washington. After residency she worked for HealthPoint, traveling all over King County covering where needed at their community health centers. She then spent 6 years with University of Washington Neighborhood Clinics in Kent, WA. After more than a decade working as an employee, she decided to start her own practice, Oodle Family Medicine, where she could be the kind of family doctor she envisioned in medical school. She enjoys practicing the Direct Primary Care model because she has an unfettered partnership with her patients, free from the burdens of the corporate medical business model and profit-minded (instead of patient-minded) insurance agencies of modern American medical culture.
Dr. Eaman has been providing care for lesbian, bisexual, gay, queer, transgender, non-binary, gender-expansive and gender-diverse patients her entire career. She is passionate about educating medical students, residents and other physicians on how to provide appropriate care for this population. She is faculty with the University of Washington Medical School and works with students on their LGBTQ Pathways elective.
Dr. Eaman also works occasionally for The Fred Hutch/SCCA Health Clinic and is Medical Director for Healthy Transitions in Montclair, NJ.
Board Certification: National Board of Physicians and Surgeons
Memberships: WPATH, GLMA, DPCA, WSMA
Terina with her grandchild
Terina "T" Jauregui
Terina graduated from Everest College and Renton Technical College in 2008 with an Associates Degree in Medical Assisting. Terina did her externship at Highline Hospital in Internal Medicine after which she was hired on to stay. Terina then went on to work at Minor and James Orthopedic Medicine as well as Orthopedic Associates Swedish.
Terina joined Oodle Family Medicine because she believes that people have the right to proper medical care without any judgment or preconceived notion of where they may be in their life. Being a part of a healthcare team helping take care of people is her happy place in life.
Terina has been married for almost 25 years with 3 kids, 2 grandkids and 3 fur babies. When Terina is not working or at the clinic, she loves to spend time with her family especially her grandkids and loving up her pups. When she is not with her family, you might find her on a horse somewhere in a field.
Wally at work
Walter "Wally" T. Ruff
Wally has been the clinic therapy dog dog of Oodle Family Medicine since he turned three years old in March 2023. He is pursuing an AKC certification as a Therapy Dog and works hard to keep Oodle patients calm and light-hearted. He loves bully sticks, scratches on his rear end, and above all, meeting new people!
When not working, you can find him napping, hiking, playing with other dogs, playing with small humans, and playing fetch.
