Dr. Krebs was very thorough and seemed genuinely interested in my care and well-being. He took the time to answer all of my concerns and provided great guidance for followup. As this was my first meeting with him I was extremely impressed with the visit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I became a member beginning January 2017 & feel privileged to have been assigned *Richard Krebs as my primary health care provider. he was very knowledgeable at my specific health care needs & the extensiveness of them. He is kind and was concerned that my vascular issues be referred and attended to as soon as possible. I felt very comfortable with *Dr. Krebs and look forward to working with him as my primary care physician in the future. [name]

I feel I was treated differently with request to service. I asked questions for clarification on my concerns and they were dismissed explaining that my treatment was SOP.

The only concern I felt this doctor had was in medicating me, and not truly listening to what iw was telling him. When I described the things I've been experiencing I felt like he was giving lip service and not actually hearing what I said.

doctor mostly looked at the computer, knew little about my conditions. I had to inform him of long term serious conditions, such as RA. and others. seamed to only be concerned with diabetes. I felt like like a Robo visit.

I am originally from California and have lived in Oregon for over 15 years. I feel that I can truly call this beautiful state home. I completed education in physics and cultural anthropology at the University of California. I went on to experience a variety of what our world has to offer; spending a year in Japan teaching English, becoming more involved in complementary and alternative medicine, earning a Doctorate in Naturopathic medicine here in Portland, and then training at the Oregon Health & Science University for Medicine. Along my unconventional path to medicine I have had the pleasure of studying history, literature, the arts, and philosophy.

About my practice

Above all, I hope to help members find balance in all that they do. I strive to combine the best of evidence-based, complementary medicine with the tried-and-true therapies of conventional medicines. This means weaving together the laboratory tests, imaging studies, medications, and other standard therapies with the traditional wisdom of the ancient healing arts. It is this combined approach that members often need to find harmony in their lives. Additionally, I hope to meet members "where they are at" to promote gentle change toward a healthier lifestyle. While I enjoy working with all members whom I have the pleasure to meet, I have a special interest in mental health, addiction, hormonal imbalance, neurologic conditions, and related topics.

How I thrive

I strive to balance a busy practice life with the things that nourish the soul, bringing us joy and contentment. These include running and weight lifting, evening walks with my wife and our young son, reading literature, creative writing, home projects, local theater and musical events, and working for social change with a variety of local groups. Kaiser Permanente Northwest in particular has helped me and my family to do this, and we embrace thrive wholeheartedly.
