As a physician, Dr. McDougall's greatest rewards come from the relationships he build with his patients and helping them live better lives. He places a strong emphasis on prevention and treating problems with lifestyle changes, and reserves prescribing medications and surgeries as a last resort. He encourages patients to eat a plant-centered diet and to be physically and mentally active to help promote good health. However change is not all or nothing, every step is important; and he wants to be there to help support people along the way. Before joining OHSU’s faculty, Dr. McDougall worked as a primary care physician and was the physician-lead of a lifestyle medicine consult clinic at Kaiser Permananete. Most recently, he was at ZOOM+Care helping develop an adult primary care practice emphasizing food and movement as medicine.

Outside of work, Craig spends as much time as possible with his wife and two children. They enjoy being outdoors, walking their dog and working around their home and garden. He maintains his family's health with the same recommendations he gives to his patients: a healthy diet, reasonable sunshine and exercise, and clean habits.
