Leah H. Yoke is a physician assistant with specialties in internal medicine and infectious disease.
As a physician assistant, my goal is to create a space where patients and their loved ones feel comfortable enough to honestly discuss their goals of care from an infectious disease standpoint. I strive to provide evidence-based, compassionate, unbiased care for every patient I care for.

I have always wanted to make a difference in the lives of others and being a medical provider is one of the most tangible ways this can be done. I appreciate being able to provide expertise and knowledge at a patient's most vulnerable time and walk alongside them through this process. It is an honor and joy to be able to do this.
Cancer patients never choose for this diagnosis. It is a hard, frustrating path and treatment can be difficult. I find it rewarding to develop long-term relationships with these patients, to help them at their sickest times, and celebrate when they become healthy.
For research, I assist in the robust clinical research program within the Fred Hutch Infectious Disease Sciences program.
On weekends, I enjoy skiing, hiking, cooking and wine tasting.
