Dr. Caruso grew up in Portland, Oregon and is thrilled to be back in his hometown to complete his family medicine residency at OHSU. Dr. Caruso decided to pursue family medicine because of the opportunities it presents to form long-lasting, supportive relationships with a wide variety of patients. He has a background in public health and health policy and believes strongly in the important role of primary care physicians in listening to and advocating for the needs of their patients. Dr. Caruso also has strong interests in global and rural health, owing to a variety of experiences in India, Latin America and the southern United States. Given the poverty and health disparities he witnessed both before and during his medical studies, he has a particular desire to provide primary care to low-income and marginalized patients, and he believes that health and health care are universal human rights.
Outside the clinic, Dr. Caruso enjoys biking, hiking, camping, kayaking, gardening, traveling and just about anything else that’s outdoors. He also loves to cook, bake, grill and brew all kinds of food and drink, and he particularly enjoys just hanging out and sharing these creations (and good conversation) with family and friends.Read more
