Cynthia Worden, DO, MSHPE, IFMCP

Dr. Worden received her certification in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine in 2016. She is board certified in Family Medicine by the American Board of Osteopathic Family Physicians, and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Integrative Medicine. She is licensed to practice medicine in the state of Oregon.


After completing her medical training in California and returning to the Northwest, she launched her medical practice in 2007 at Creekside Family Practice, practicing integrative family medicine for 10 years. Eager to focus on Functional Medicine, Dr. Worden started Bloom Functional Medicine in 2018. Functional medicine is a practice that involves an in-depth understanding of the origin, prevention and treatment of complex chronic diseases.


As a mother of two young boys, Dr. Worden has first-hand experience with the challenges many families face. She understands it can be difficult to provide healthy food for the whole family, while finding time for self-care and maintaining a healthy work-life balance. In her free time, Dr. Worden loves to spend time with family and friends, reading, skiing, kayaking, hiking, cooking and traveling.

"My vision is to be the doctor I would want for myself, my family and my closest friends. When I treat patients, I think of how I would want to be treated. I focus on prevention and early diagnosis. I view the body as an integrated and interconnected system. I know that the body has the innate capacity to heal under the right conditions. I believe that food can both heal us and harm us, and that a good diet is the foundation of good health.

I look for the root cause of illness, rather than mask symptoms with medications. I try to minimize prescription medication whenever possible, and use safer alternatives when they exist. However, prescription medications are sometimes warranted, and I will recommend them when I think they are in your best interest.

I believe that a physician-patient relationship is about partnership and collaboration, because you know your body best.

I practice what I preach. I love what I do. Most importantly, I care about you and your health." -Cynthia Worden, DO, IFMCP
