Daniel Crawford believes medicine should provide a sense of well-being, to his patients, colleagues, staff and the community at large. He cultivated this view over years as a family physician in Southeast Portland as well as while practicing medicine in Indonesia for nearly 10 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 everyday concerns to managing acute crises. The key driver for Daniel 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."

Daniel wanted to be a doctor since he was in grade school. His parents supported his interest and he became the first in his family to go into medicine. He completed his medical training at Oregon Health & Science University and his residency in South Bend, Ind.

During his time off, Daniel 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.
