Jon has worked at OHSU for some time, however has spent much of that time caring for patients in The Dalles, OR, and teaching within the OHSU School of Nursing in Portland. While in The Dalles, Jon championed and developed the SOMOS program, delivering on-site primary care to the Columbia Gorge Region’s thousands of migrant farmworkers. More recently, Jon has served as the clinical supervisor for OHSU’s mass vaccination efforts at PDX Airport, where he gained local notoriety for his PDX Pack Immunity Instagram account, which cataloged the companion animals of patients visiting the site. Jon is excited to continue his Internal Medicine practice at OHSU’s Marquam Hill Internal Medicine Clinic.

Outside of his routine primary care practice, Jon supports OHSU’s newly established Long COVID Clinic which serves “Long Haul” COVID19 patients as a regional referral center for complex cases. Jon can also be found supporting the OHSU Preoperative Medicine Clinic at CHH2.
