Get to Know Dr. Michelle Seelig

After publishing her undergraduate thesis on the transition from midwife- to physician-assisted birth at the turn of the 20th century, Dr. Seelig spent 1995 independently studying Spanish in preparation for attending Mount Sinai School of Medicine, located on the border of Spanish Harlem in New York City. During that year, she also volunteered at the Washington State Health Services Commission and backpacked around Mexico.

Dr. Seelig graduated from Mount Sinai in 1999 and, in 2002, completed her residency training in family medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. From there, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a National Institutes of Health-funded research fellowship focused on examining fragmentation in the modern healthcare system and recommending ways in which specialists and primary care physicians could collaborate to improve quality and cohesiveness in patient care.

Practicing the art and science of medicine has always been a highly rewarding challenge for Dr. Seelig, who spent more than a decade honing her diagnostic skills at Group Health/Kaiser Permanente in Seattle. In 2020, she joined the team at Seattle Premier Health. "I find that engaging my patients as partners and coordinating their healthcare to be profoundly satisfying. I chose to join a direct patient-care practice so that I could spend the time it takes to provide focused, high-quality, personalized care."

Personal Side of Dr. Michelle Seelig

A curious, driven, disciplined problem-solver with keen listening skills, Dr. Seelig is comfortable and confident in a variety of diverse roles including delivering chronic illness care in an outpatient primary care setting, presenting data to a board of directors, and writing research papers. She proudly considers herself an intelligent, geeky outlier who thinks about the big picture, enjoys delving into the details, and relishes laughing with colleagues and patients.

Outside of work, Dr. Seelig is devoted to raising her five sons, re-directing the golden retriever, and donning the variety of hats required to keep family life on track: driving instructor; summer camp scout; winter sports coordinator; bar mitzvah planner; international travel consultant; and carpool driver. In her precious free time, Dr. Seelig enjoys traveling to the San Juan Islands, cooking, socializing with her documentary film and book clubs, and practicing Pilates. She is also a volunteer coach for her son’s Destination Imagination team and serves on the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) board.
