Dr. Gebhard grew up in Colorado and completed his undergraduate degree in political science at Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. He attended medical school at the University of Colorado, after which he completed an internship in internal medicine at Maimonidies Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY and then his residency in ophthalmology at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA. Dr. Gebhard also has an interest in global health and has spent significant time abroad working in Mongolia, Bolivia, Honduras, and Mexico. He speaks fluent Spanish, Mongolian and some Russian.

In his free time, he enjoys hiking, camping, biking, skiing, and spending time outdoors with his wife, son, and dog. Dr. Gebhard is excited to be practicing ophthalmology in Hood River and The Dalles and still can't believe that he calls Hood River, Oregon home!
