I was raised in the Pacific Northwest and graduated from the University of Washington with bachelor’s degrees in biology and psychology. For medical school, I traveled south to the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). My general surgery residency training started on the East Coast and ended back on the West Coast, taking me from the teaching hospitals at Harvard to UCSF, where I also completed an organ transplant fellowship focusing on the liver, pancreas and kidney.  

Back in the Pacific Northwest, I became part of the Oregon Health & Science University organ transplant service and published several research papers on organ transplantation and brain physiology before joining The Portland Clinic in 1996. My practice here at the clinic focuses on minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeries and general surgeries of the abdominal cavity, thyroid, breast and soft tissues. I see many patients for diseases of the veins and perform both open and minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins. 

My wife and I are a two-surgeon couple — she is an obstetrics and gynecology surgeon and physician. We live in Portland and are busy raising our three children. Some of my favorite activities are skiing, cycling, playing guitar, eating sushi and reading science fiction. 

Dr. Reed has been named a Top Doctor by Portland Monthly magazine multiple times.
