Biography


I am a physician who strives to provide family centered care that looks at the whole patient. I agree with this statement from the American Academy of Family Physicians: In the increasingly fragmented world of health care, one thing remains constant: family physicians are dedicated to treating the whole person. Family medicine's cornerstone is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focusing on integrated care. Unlike other specialties that are limited to a particular organ or disease, family medicine integrates care for patients of both genders and every age, and advocates for the patient in a complex health care system. Things to know about me: I am pro-vaccine, I love taking care of your whole family (babies too!) and I am LGBTQQI friendly. I welcome you and your family to my practice!

Always come on time. Finish everything within 30 min. Super fast! Including writing visit note. She told me to make another appointment to spend time more if I want to.
I was referred to this doctor by another doctor I see and really like. Dr. Seekamp was great!
Dr.Seekamp is so impressive my wife is now a patient of her and left her care giver to go under Dr.Seekamp's care after she saw how well the Dr cared for me !
The length of the exam is just too short. Dr Seekamp does a great job with the time but one would want quite a bit more time to talk through the overall picture.
Dr. Seekamp takes a great care of my health, proactively checking any potential issues. She is always available for any concerns I may have via internal correspondence through MyHealth.
Love her.
Did not see provider and screened by resident - spent a lot of time talking to the resident and little time with the provider whom I had scheduled the appointment with.
Dr Seekamp listened, explained and was caring.
Dr Seekamp is always very friendly and upbeat. she conveys concern for me .
explanation about the physical therapy was not so clear. especially about where to go.
Dr Seekamp is awesome
She was very empathetic, helpful, and seemed to genuinely want to help me however she could.
Dr. Seekamp is possibly my favorite doctor ever. Seriously. Listens, interacts, cares. Sometimes I wish she didn't have to type but it does make it EASY to make changes before records become permanent. I'd recommend her to others but her schedule is completely full and that seems pointless if I ever want to see her again. She is amazing.
Dr. R. Seekamp is the best provider I ever have.
Dr. Seekamp is thorough, thoughtful and easy to deal with. She has been my primary care doctor for many years.
She is excellent...

I am so grateful my rotating door of PCPs while at Stanford has lead me to Dr. Seekamp. She is a gem.
Make you feel very comfortable. Ease of explaining the medication.
Wish provider spent more time w/me & not always rushing.
I am a nurse so I am tough on my docs. That being said, I loved Dr. Seekamp. She didn't make me feel pressed for time, but instead, like I was drinking coffee with a friend included me in my care plan and treated me - not the statistics.
Dr. Seekamp best doctor I have ever had in 84 years.
Dr. Seekamp and I go way back. She is committed to providing excellent care; very thorough in getting background on an issue/symptom; easy to talk with about any issue. I have considered her my primary care physician for many years. She offers ideas to better my health. She has regularly used the MyHealth program to report results and respond to my messages. I hope to be her patient for many years more.
Wonderful experience with Dr. SeeKamp & her intern.
Very attentive care. Kind approach and excellent bedside manner.
I really like Dr. Seekamp - she's connected to her patients in a genuine way. I'm not speaking to someone who's detached and distant. She's real and kind and likely the best generalist I've ever encountered.
Recommended her to my adult children.
I truly like Dr. Seekamp and am happy to be her patient. I am not the best patient and dont' get regular checkups and such when I feel fine, so I recognize that I need to appreciate that she made extra time to ensure that I was taken care of properly following hospital release. Dr. Seekamp went way above and beyond and I can't thank her enough.
Dr. Seekamp is empathic and a great listener. She is the best doctor I have ever had.
I feel like Dr. Seekamp is the first dr. at Stanford who has actually listened to me when it comes to my health and not showed guidelines that don't pertain to me down my throat.

I highly recommend Dr Seekamp. I trusted her because she really care and understand your feelings. She sincerely gives advises the best of her knowledge.
