Meet the Doctors
Dr. Lanika Buchanan
Dr. Lanika Buchanan is the founding doctor of Health Moves which was originally developed with her husband Andrew Max as a mobile clinic serving businesses on the Eastside. In 2002 Health Moves found a permanent home in Woodinville and has recently grown into a beautiful new location directly across from Woodinville City Hall.
Dr. Buchanan was born in Australia and sailed for 2 years in the Great Barrier Reef on a 22 ft sailboat before traveling throughout Southeast Asia, Nepal and India with her mother, all before the age of eight. She then settled in Big Sur, California in a rustic area without electricity, telephone or paved roads. After graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz with a BA in Cultural and Medical Anthropology she again travelled around the world, adding Europe to her list of over 25 countries. Upon her return, with extreme determination, she completed a doctorate in naturopathic medicine concurrently with a masters of science degree in acupuncture from Bastyr University.

She is a guest lecturer for Bastyr University and Evergreen Hospital as well as a consultant on corporate wellness programs throughout Puget Sound.

She is an active member of professional organizations including the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), The Washington Association for Naturopathic Physicians (WANP), and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and the Washington Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Association (WAOMA).
 
 
Dr. Tom Klos
Dr. Klos has been with Health Moves for over 2yrs after practicing for 12 years in Kirkland, Washington. His focus is on primary care, gastro-intestinal, food allergies and joint manipulation.

He is happy to be back in Woodinville after a 25year absence where the childhood home on 5 acres of fruit trees and surrounding forest was out near Crystal Lake. He now lives in Seattle with his wife Jackie, who is an assistant professor in the UW's family medicine program, and young son Leo. (ND vs. MD, can you imagine the talks around their dinner table?)

While he obtained his BA degree at The Evergreen State College, he studied abroad in France, Italy, Greece and Turkey and played rugby. He spent a semester reading Plato's Republic & worked on a fishing boat in Alaska to pay for his senior year.

After college he worked for Wilderness Cruises as a deckhand spending the winters in Mexico and the summers up in Alaska. He then bought a bicycle and three days later joined two friends to spend the next 3 months cycling the western United States. After 3,000 miles and crossing the continental divide 7 times he cycled home over Stevens pass and back to Woodinville.

Dr. Klos later studied chemistry and biology and went to Bastyr University to obtain his doctorate in naturopathic medicine. He assures us he is staying put for now and is a home-body who enjoys cooking for his family.
 
Dr. Renee Plummer
Dr. Renee Plummer is a general practitioner who specializes in women’s health,
endocrinology, and physical medicine. Her goal is to combine holistic and conventional
medicine to promote a balanced whole body with an emphasis on mind-body
connection.
On the path to her Doctorate, Dr. Plummer had a conversation about the six principles
of naturopathic medicine with a Bastyr student. This led her to realize the value that she
places on having a therapeutic relationship with every patient. Because this was an
aspect of health care that she did not experience growing up, it became a driving force
of her philosophy. This is why you will often hear Dr. Plummer’s laughter spontaneously
permeate throughout Health Moves or hear her humming her favorite song of the day.
Being around people fuels her and provides her with a vivacious, infectious energy.
Taking care of her family is the primary reason that Dr. Plummer worked her whole life
to become a doctor. She grew up in a house full of strong women who pushed her to do
her best in every aspect of her life, an approach she follows to this day. In high school,
along with her academic studies, Dr. Plummer took on the challenges of competitive
sports, student body politics, medical internships and teaching roles. She was a leader
in the classroom, on the basketball court and holds an Auburn High School Record for
the 100 meter dash in track. She is also particularly proud of her role in coordinating
events as Senior Class President and Social Chair. The values instilled in her by her
family were summarized in this quote from her graduation speech: “the only time
success comes before work is in the dictionary.” Putting in the hard work each day is
how Dr. Plummer gives back to her family and the community at large.
A Washington native, Dr. Plummer was born and raised in Seattle where she trained
tirelessly at the University of Washington and Bastyr University. She holds a Bachelor of
Science in Biology and a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. With this background, she
provides holistic care to all ages, ranging from adolescents to geriatric patients. She is
thoroughly trained in pharmaceutical medicine as well as counseling, nutrition, herbal
medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine and environmental medicine. She has also
furthered her medical education by becoming a certified Biofeedback Practitioner as
well as a certified Kinesiology Taping Practitioner.
This rigorous and thorough training has helped Dr. Plummer to refine her diagnostic and
treatment techniques. At the core of her methodology is a desire to energize, empower
and stimulate growth in her patients, motivating them to reach their optimal health.
Open lines of communication and trust are essential to breaking the cycle of chronic
illness. An open two-way dialogue helps both Dr. Plummer and her patient stay on the
same page when identifying the aspects of their health that need attention. By working
with Dr. Plummer you have the luxury to be seen, heard, and helped by a physician who
cares about you and your family.
 
 
Andrew Max
Andrew Max is the co-founder of Health Moves which was originally developed with his wife Dr. Lanika Buchanan as a mobile clinic serving businesses on the Eastside. In 2002 Health Moves found a permanent home in Woodinville and has recently grown into a beautiful new location directly across from Woodinville City Hall.
Originally from Southern California, Andrew first found WA State via the US Navy at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island where he served as an electronics technician. The passion for electronics started at a young age with his first business at 14 in car stereo sales and installation. This was soon followed by building computers in high school for a friends business. After many years as an electronics technician it was time for a change. Andrew found a zeal in the real estate industry. His 16 year multi-faceted practice had a varied career. His practice of real estate coupled with business brokering greatly assisted in the development of Health Moves with his wife Dr. Lanika Buchanan where he now serves as the Operations Director. As such, he presides over the majority of the day-to-day back office and technical duties. Andrew feels that his culminating background has prepared him for growing in business with his best friend Lanika as they look forward to a long future in life and business together. Andrew is unsure of the next venture at this juncture but is sure there will be one. With a lust for travel and delight for their son Kurtis, he and his wife feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to grow and explore together as a family as they seek new adventures in life.
