Dr. McClanahan’s practice, Northwest Foot & Ankle in Portland, Oregon, allows him to care for those who find their highest joy when in motion.

His professional goal is to provide quality natural foot health services with an emphasis on sports medicine, preventative and conservative options as well as education on proper footwear.

Dr. Sam Oltman graduated with a Bachelors of Science from Oregon State University in Exercise and Sport Science where he was also a member of the Beavers football team playing wide receiver. He attended the National College of Natural Medicine, graduating with his Naturopathic Doctorate (ND), and then completed a rigorous 2-year primary care residency at Grain Integrative Health in SE Portland. He has advanced training in pain management, orthopedics, and regenerative injection therapies.
Dr. Oltman treats patients with the underlying presumption that the body contains the wisdom to heal itself- it simply needs the requisite inputs for enhanced healing and the removal of certain barriers that prevent healing. He believes that symptoms are not aberrations to be suppressed but rather wise expressions of nature pointing to where imbalance lies.
As a lifelong athlete, Dr. Oltman has always been interested in how to optimize performance and physical fitness. Restoring natural foot function to his own feet years ago has made him a true believer and one who “walks the walk” when it comes to the barefoot lifestyle. As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Oltman also has deep insight into systemic and holistic strategies for enhancing performance on the track, field, trail, classroom or office.
An Oregon native, Dr. Oltman loves spending time with family and friends while maintaining an active lifestyle with biking, running, CrossFit, yoga, slacklining, hiking barefoot, basketball, ping pong and swimming in the lakes and rivers of the Cascades.
