My passion for health attainment and maintenance is focused on the integration of medical occupational and emotional health.  Diagnostic accuracy and integration of these three key facets are a focus for the comprehensive care and illness recovery that we all strive for at OHSU.   Exercise, life-balance, and pursuit of avocations have been shown to attenuate a vast majority of long-term illnesses and progressive weight gain, which is the current health epidemic in America. Internal Medicine and Geriatrics at OHSU integrates the electronic medical records with access to a vast array of subspecialists to provide integrative, knowledgeable, and comprehensive care to best serve our patients in a individualized, caring, and thoughtful way.  I and my Internal Medicine team look forward to assisting you in your personal health goals.

Educational Activities

I am the sole clinical occupational medicine physician at OHSU.  As such, my educational roles are quite varied in scope and formality. My longitudinal teaching activity includes a half day a week occupational medicine experience for second and third year internal medicine residents.  We take time to discus occupational balance and career choices for the young physicians.  I customize their experience depending on the future career choices of the individual physician.
