Meet Dr. Ravasia

Thank-you from Women's Health Connection

Women's Health Connection wishes to thank the community for their support during the 11 years that we welcomed and cared for patients in the greater Spokane area. 

The practice formally closed on September 16, 2016.  Women's Health Connection was a dba of "Northwest Health Summit".  The other divisions, including Metabolic Health Connection, and Northwest Psychiatry and TMS Services, also closed on that date.  For more information about the previous practice, including why it closed and how to obtain your medical records, please see below.

This site will slowly be converted into a website for information for general women's health maintained as time allows by Dr. Debra Ravasia, rather than a practice website.  This site is for general information purposes only, and not intended as specific medical advice for your condition.  You should always consult your own physician for a diagnosis, and before making any decisions about how to proceed with your healthcare.  There are various opinions, and medicine can change quickly, sometimes more quickly than this website will be able to keep up.
