King Health and WellnessAt King Health & Wellness (585 Murphy Road in Medford), Julie King, MD, and Kim Larson, WHCNP, have a collective 42 years experience practicing gynecology in the Rogue Valley. The gynecology specialty clinic offers a full spectrum of women’s health care focusing on preventative care, cancer detection, genetic testing, minimally invasive surgery, hormonal evaluation and management, and sexual medicine.

Julie has lived in the Rogue Valley since 2002, joining Medford Women’s Clinic where she practiced obstetrics and gynecology.

I finished my residency at OHSU in Portland and was looking for a strong medical community in a smaller town and found that here,” she said. “I enjoy many outdoor activities available in the area, and the Rogue Valley offered an excellent opportunity to enjoy a fulfilling career and personal life.”
Kim has also lived in the Rogue Valley since 2002. “I moved here from Nashville, Tennessee, where I attended nursing school at Vanderbilt,” she said. “I’m originally from Santa Rosa, California, and also lived in Colorado. I was looking for a small town with outdoor activities to settle and raise my family. I originally moved to the Rogue Valley to work at Planned Parenthood, then moved to Medford Women’s Clinic in 2004. This is where I met Julie, and we became friends and colleagues.”
Over the years, they each developed a wealth of experience and decided it was time to branch out on their own to offer patients a more relaxed, intimate, and personalized approach to women’s health care.

“After attending a conference sponsored by the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health, we were inspired to expand our services to include a sexual medicine clinic in addition to traditional gynecologic services,” Julie said. “Kim and I both share the same passion for women’s health, so we decided to join forces and open King Health & Wellness in October 2022.”
At the clinic, patients can expect a warm and accepting environment.

“We provide a high level of medical care in a customer friendly, non-judgmental atmos-phere,” Kim said. “We utilize a secure patient portal so patients can easily access forms, transfer and update health information, and communicate using the latest technology. Sexual medicine is an important service offered at King Health & Wellness. In addition, we offer hormone care and gender affirming care.”

Dr. King also owns and operates a medical aesthetics practice—King Aesthetics.

“We provide many treatments, including those that improve pelvic floor health,” Julie said.

“Treatments for urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and post-menopausal changes are offered in this setting.  We are the only clinic in Southern Oregon offering a specific program for sexual dysfunction. We recognize that sexual health care is health care, and we are here to help.”
