About me

Dr. Jonica is a gastroenterologist with advanced fellowship training in interventional endoscopy. She specializes in pancreas and bile duct disorders, and she sees patients in clinic as well as performs procedures (EUS and ERCP) related to these conditions. Her clinical and research interests involve management of chronic pancreatitis, pancreatic cystic lesions and necrotizing pancreatitis. She also is experienced in performing procedures such as ERCP in those with altered post-surgical anatomy, when a less invasive, non-operative approach is desired.

During her free time, she enjoys trail running and cycling with her husband —a couple of main reasons that attracted her to Portland! She is passionate about caring for Oregonians and empowering patients to make decisions about their potential treatment options together.
