*Dr. Benthin's communication is minimal. Not real forth coming unless asked specific question, even then it was somewhat awkward.

*Dr. Benthin ordered x-rays in case I did not get better in a few days. I felt he trusted me and valued my ability to follow the plan. I have been sick for 4 months and *Dr. Benthin is sincere, kind, listens, questions and cares. Thank you.

Dr. Benthin was an excellent listener and that gave me the confidence that he was going to give me that time needed to answer all my questions and he did! He even showed me the computer screen and the _____ of my lungs. It was - very informative and impressive to know more about my health. I thank you all for your efficiency.

I am a native of the Willamette Valley, having grown up in the small town of Colton. Since I was young I wanted to be a doctor. While completing my undergraduate education at the University of Portland, I spent a year studying in Salzburg, Austria. This formative experience gave me an appreciation of history, art, and music, as well as the differences and similarities among people. I attended medical school at Georgetown University, in Washington, D.C., where I developed a passion for respiratory physiology and the care of critically ill patients. I stayed in Washington to complete my internal medicine residency at George Washington University, then served four years of active duty in the United States Air Force. My experiences practicing medicine during deployments to Haiti and the Middle East solidified my desire to pursue a career in pulmonary and critical care medicine. After my service in the military, I returned home, where I completed my fellowship at Oregon Health & Science University. My wife is also a NW Permanente physician.

About my practice

I am one of many pulmonary and critical care physicians at NW Permanente, and together we are dedicated to providing high-quality care to our members. I approach each member with individualized attention to their specific needs and respect for their unique circumstances and concerns. In my general pulmonary practice I care for members who have a range of respiratory disease and dysfunction and employ the advanced bronchoscopic techniques of endobronchial ultrasound and navigational bronchoscopy. I provide critical care at Kaiser Permanente Sunnyside Medical Center, where we deliver a team-based approach to members with a broad array of disorders involving organ dysfunction and failure.

How I thrive

Family is very important to me and is the reason I call the Willamette Valley home. My young family is happy to be close to our extended relatives. Growing up in the foothills of the Cascades, I developed a keen appreciation for the outdoors. I am an avid hiker, camper, skier, and mountain biker. These are all activities I enjoy with family and friends. It is the stillness of the forest, the push to reach the next vista, and the thrill of speeding down a mountain that drives me. Exercise is a stress reliever for me, especially running, although I must be honest that I prefer the heat and sun to our sometimes rainy Northwest days. I enjoy traveling and engaging in new experiences.
