Quote from patient: "I've had a significant amount of medical treatment in my life from a number of great doctors.  I have not, however, ever had a doctor who has helped me to the extent you have.  I have said it before but it merits being said again.  You are a great doctor and an even better Human Being.  Your support and assistance has been invaluable to me."


GreenField Health, 2008-present

I enjoy working with patients to ensure that their medical and healthcare needs are being met. I have a special interest in preventive healthcare and quality improvement work within our healthcare system. I was born and raised in Washington State and currently live in Portland with my wife and have two children, son Ryan and daughter Megan.

My family and I enjoy numerous activities that include skiing, hiking, camping and backpacking. I also spend a fair amount of time volunteering with Medical Teams International (formerly Northwest Medical Teams) including making several medical mission trips to emerging parts of the world.
