Dr. Bonneau is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha and the Gold Humanism Honor Societies. It is rare to be elected for membership in both organizations. In addition to her strong surgical skills, Dr. Bonneau is often recognized for her open, compassionate patient care and innate ability to develop high quality, effective physician/patient relationships. Throughout her education and training, she received accolades and awards for her bedside manner, leadership, community service, and teaching.
Having spent time in Washington, Montana, Colorado, and Oregon, and possessing a love for the mountains, the Inland Northwest felt like home from Dr. Bonneau’s first visit. She, her husband, and their two young children are happily settling into their lives in Spokane.
Dr. Bonneau is proud of the work she does.
