About Reviews

No comments available. ?

I am originally from Ohio where I completed most of my education. My original plan after graduating Ohio State was to continue in graduate school with the intention of a career in molecular genetic research. Plans changed when, during a job at the National Institute for Health (NIH), I came to appreciate clinical medicine to a greater degree, so I returned to Ohio for medical school. Upon my first trip to the Northwest, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the land and the pace of life. So in 1995, I decided to move here for residency followed by a fellowship in geriatric psychiatry at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and have stayed ever since.

About my practice

Since joining Kaiser Permanente, I have worked in various roles, most of this time in the outpatient clinic providing consultation and medication management. My passion is working with the geriatric population and I consider myself primarily a geriatric psychiatrist. However I have also worked with younger adults in the intensive outpatient program as well as with our procedural program at the hospital. I feel strongly that a collaborative approach working with primary care and other physicians, nurses, social workers, and families is key in providing the best care possible for each patient.

How I thrive

Balancing my personal life with work is crucial in maintaining a sound body, mind, and spirit. I do this by spending time with my family and big dogs. Reading, oil painting, science fiction, gaming, and regular exercise also help invigorate and refresh me as I travel on life's journey.
