Family Medicine - Primary Care
Not accepting new patients at this time.
After graduating from Willamette University, I attended medical school in Guadalajara, Mexico. I completed my clinical clerkship at Mt. Sinai and internship and residency at the University of Oklahoma, Tulsa. During my last year at the University of Oklahoma, I was Chief Resident.
I have called Oregon home for most of my life. After finishing a family practice residency, I knew I wanted to settle in a location within close proximity to the beach and the mountains, yet near a lovely metropolitan area. Portland, for me, is the perfect place to live and work. After working as a solo practitioner in Hillsboro for 28 years, I joined The Portland Clinic.
My many years of experience have taught me that there is rarely a single solution or treatment plan for a given medical problem. My goal is to get to know my patients, work closely with them, offer options, and then determine the best course of action to meet their unique and specific needs. As a family physician, I treat a wide variety of conditions–everything from colds and flu to diabetes and heart problems. It is also a responsibility I take seriously to know when to refer a patient to a specialist for more in-depth evaluation.
Outside the office, I enjoy time with my family and traveling. In recent years, photography has become a favorite hobby, one that consumes more and more of my free time.
