About Dr. Stephen Wangen

Dr. Stephen Wangen is a board certified physician specializing in the identification and treatment of food allergies to improve your health. He has first-hand experience with food allergies, having been diagnosed with a gluten intolerance (wheat allergy) in 1996. He has since developed a comprehensive program to diagnose and work with food allergies and the multitude of potentially associated conditions.

Because food allergies have become a major (but under-recognized) factor in causing chronic disease, Dr. Wangen is focusing his practice on natural methods to deal with food allergies and related conditions and nutritional deficiencies.


Dr. Wangen has been in private practice since 1999. His clinic is located in Seattle, Washington and offers primary care for clients of all ages. The clinic is best known for its diagnosis and treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, food allergies and gluten intolerance.

Dr. Wangen received his doctoral degree in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington, and is a licensed primary care provider in Washington. He graduated with honors in premedicine from Pacific Lutheran University.
