I am a pulmonologist and critical care doctor, originally from Spokane, Washington. I went to college at the University of Idaho and medical school at the University of Washington. I did a combined internal medicine and pediatrics residency at the University of Minnesota before returning to UW for an adult pulmonary and critical care fellowship. I am married and have 2 young children. We have lived in the Portland area for more than 5 years.
I practice adult pulmonary and critical care medicine. (Although I did complete a pediatrics residency, I no longer see pediatric patients.) I care for members with all types of pulmonary disorders, both in and out of the hospital—including the intensive care unit—and I am part of a team that cares for patients with cystic fibrosis. My approach to member care involves learning about what is important to you, the patient. I then want us to develop a treatment plan together. Some members are very active participants in this process and some prefer to let me lead—I am happy with either scenario.
I thrive by staying busy with family activities with my wife, daughter, and son. We like to be outdoors, hiking, camping, and riding bikes, and also love spending time with grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles.
