E. Dan Crawford believes in medicine as providing a sense of well being, to his patients, colleagues, staff, and the community at large. His is an informed point of view, cultivated by years of being a family physician in SE Portland along with opportunities to practice internationally in Indonesia for nearly ten years and more recently in Liberia during the Ebola crisis of 2014. 

His calm demeanor comes from someone who has a wealth of experience as a doctor, from treating every day concerns to managing acute crises. The key driver for Dan is the connection with his patients. This drew him to GreenField Health. "I was aware of GreenField when I was practicing at South Tabor," he says. "I saw this opportunity and was attracted to the clinic's model and values." Relationship, service and reliability align perfectly with his, adding "I've tried to emulate them all of my career."

Dan's dedication to medicine goes way back. "I've want to be a doctor since grade school," he says. His parents supported his interest and he became the first in his family to go in to medicine. 

In his time off, Dan enjoys teaching English as a second language, being active in his church, and reading books on his Kindle. Being a true Portlander, he also roots for the Trailblazers!
