About our clinic
The blue lotus is symbolic for wisdom and knowledge. It evokes feelings of peace, serenity, health, and healing. And that's what we want you to feel when you interact with Blue Lotus Family Medicine.
We do things differently
We DO NOT accept insurance. Why? So we can offer a better healthcare experience.
Here's the problem
Insurance companies dictate - What medicine to take, What test to give, How much time you can spend with your doctor. This creates a bad doctor, patient relationship from the start.
It also influences HOW your doctor cares for you.
At Blue Lotus, we cut insurance out of the healthcare equation so we are free to do what's in your best interest. We don't need to ask permission of a disinterested third party.
We believe you deserve great primary health care!
If you believe that too, learn more about membership.

Tiffanny Blythe, DO
Dr. Tiffanny Blythe grew up in rural Alabama idolizing the rural country docs. She had an early passion for medicine and dreamed of providing simple, life-saving care for everyday people. While getting her degree in biomedical sciences from the University of South Alabama, she held multiple leadership roles and volunteer positions. She went on to get a Master of Educational Psychology from the University of Alabama simply for the joy of learning. In medical school, she wanted to focus on how to care for humans, not simply how to cure diseases. She found that at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. Here she also learned to use her hands in what is called osteopathic medicine to diagnose and treat what the body knows is wrong but what cannot be detected by labs and xrays. Simultaneously, she obtained a Master of Business Administration in Healthcare Leadership from Rockhurst University.
After this solid foundation in business and medicine, she was fortunate to learn from the compassionate, highly-skilled leaders at Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency to hone her skills and broaden her knowledge of primary care, including hospital medicine and obstetrics. Dr. Blythe is proud to offer superior, full-spectrum primary care for everyone in the family. She finds all aspects of medicine fascinating and loves the variety that family medicine provides. But her greatest joy is in providing women’s health and helping a family welcome it’s newest member into the world.
Kathryn Turner, DO
Dr. Katie Turner received a BA in Biology and Spanish at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and obtained her medical degree at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, where she also completed an Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine fellowship. She completed training at the Alaska Family Medicine Residency in Anchorage and stayed on as a fourth-year chief resident. After taking time off from practicing medicine to focus on raising her children, she joined her dear friend, Dr. Blythe, at Blue Lotus Family Medicine. In this unique clinical setting, she is able to provide quality care with an emphasis on treating the patient as a whole person while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
Dr. Turner is proficient in Spanish and her favorite areas of medicine include women's health, mental health, preventative health, and OMT (manipulative therapy). She loves the collaborative relationship with patients of all ages, races, genders, and sexual orientations. She believes everyone's health journey is personal and must incorporate mental, spiritual, social, and emotional wellness along with physical wellness.
