About me

While I take care of adult patients undergoing all types of surgery, I specialize in caring for those with advanced disease affecting the heart, lung, and vascular systems. With sub-specialty training in cardiothoracic anesthesia, I regularly incorporate the use of trans-esophageal echocardiography (real-time, video assessment of the heart and its surrounding structures) in the care of my patients.

When I'm not working, I spend time exploring the wilderness of Oregon and beyond, scuba diving and traveling internationally. My black lab drags me through Portland's parks on a regular basis. I'm also an avid wood worker and photographer.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
