About Reviews

No comments available. ?

Originally from Indiana, I attended college and medical school at Indiana University. I completed my internal medicine residency at the University of Cincinnati and my hospice and palliative care specialty fellowship at Cleveland Clinic. I practiced in Ohio and North Carolina before venturing out west to beautiful Portland, Oregon.

About my practice

I practice Palliative Medicine in our hospitals and outpatient clinics as well as home hospice. My goal is to relieve pain and suffering and to foster strength through relationships. I work amongst a team of outstanding people to help manage the complex needs of our members, families, and caregivers. I also serve as the Director of Medical Ethics for the Kaiser Permanente Northwest Region. In this role, I enjoy hearing members' individual stories and valuing their uniqueness, while striving to maintain fairness and equality in the care we provide to our community.

How I thrive

I enjoy fine art and architecture; reading classical literature and philosophy; hiking outdoors; and playing relaxing music on a variety of Native American, Japanese, and Indian flutes.
