The dr. and his assistant were the friendliest employees of Kaiser I've ever met. They made the experience wonderful even if the wait time wasn't pleasant.

This was the first time I saw *Dr. Unger, but I could tell within the first minute that he was a knowledgeable and caring physician. I'm very pleased with his care and concern and his teaching - he gave me reassurance in what I was already doing to remedy the condition.

*Dr. Unger is the third pediatrician we have seen at Kaiser, and after seeing him I made him my children's PCP. He was the most friendly, and showed the most concern for my girls. He also gave me information in preparing my own solution at home to treat my girls' when they get swimmers ear. I thought this was very helpful and thoughtful. I would most definitely refer him to others. I TRULY appreciate his care, thoughtfulness, and GENUINE concern when treating my girls. Thank you!

As a teen and young adult growing up in Texas, before choosing a career in medicine, I knew that I wanted to work with kids. I completed my medical training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Children's Medical Center of Dallas, Texas. Previous practice experience includes 13 years with Kaiser Permanente in Texas before moving to private practice in Eugene, Oregon for approximately 16 years. As our children became adults and moved on, my wife and I moved to Portland, Oregon in 2013.

About my practice

Prevention is a big part of what I do as a Pediatrician every day. I feel fortunate to be able to practice with Kaiser Permanente because of our shared views about the value of prevention and using evidence and science to guide decisions in the patients' best interest. The practice of medicine involves a lot of listening before helping a family find the best option for their unique needs. I believe there is often more than one correct way of accomplishing desired health goals and outcomes.

How I thrive

In addition to my wife and two adult boys, the things that help me thrive include: swimming, hiking, ping pong, yoga, good food, biking, scuba, and travel. I have a genuine interest in public health, the relationship between policy/politics and health. I founded a community coalition to prevent childhood obesity in Lane County and, in 2015, I will serve on the Board of Upstream Public Health in Portland, Oregon.
