Samuel, KrystalKrystal Samuel, DO

Cardiology & Board Certified Internal Medicine

Willamette Valley Medical Center is pleased to announce the new addition to their medical staff, Dr. Krystal Samuel, fellowship trained Cardiologist and Board Certified Internist. Dr. Samuel has come a long way to join our medical staff and we are thrilled for our community.

Born and raised in Illinois, she didn’t venture out of state for schooling. She instead attended the University of Illinois for her bachelor degree, Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Sciences for her Masters of Applied Physiology, and then attended Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine/Midwestern University for her doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine. Extensively trained, Dr. Samuels was not done yet. From very early on in her training she had a fascination for the heart. She followed her passion and enrolled at Franciscan St. James Hospital and Health Center where she completed a 3 year adult cardiology fellowship.

Dr. Samuel completed her cardiology fellowship in August of 2015 and knew the west coast was where she would like to call home. Her husband is a true Oregonian and their dream came true when she accepted the position to join Northwest Cardiovascular Institute and Dr. Spear in McMinnville. “Helping others and educating them about their health is what I am most eager for. I believe healthcare is a team approach and I’m excited to be joining such a wonderful Medical Staff at WVMC and fantastic practice with Dr. Spear.” said Dr. Samuel.

In her clinic, Northwest Cardiovascular Institute, she will treat the full spectrum of cardiac conditions including:

  • General Cardiology
  • Preventative Cardiology
  • Acute Coronary Problems
  • Specialized Cardiovascular Therapies
  • Echocardiography
  • Women’s Health

Dr. Samuel is extremely dedicated to her patients and has an undeniable passion for serving the community. She is the wife of a pastor and is very involved with many different organizations. She is looking forward to continuing her service in all aspects of McMinnville, not only healthcare. When Dr. Samuel is not in the clinic she will most likely be found doing her “other favorite job” being a mother.

Welcome to Willamette Valley Medical Center’s medical staff Dr. Samuel We are delighted to have you as part of our team!
