I found him to be informative, patient and interactive and not to lofty to address my concerns as doctors can often be.

*Dr. Harburg is a very good listener. He pays attention to the issues and focuses on trying to solve the issue. After analysis and tests, nothing showed us so we looked at life style issues. So far, those changes have eliminated the symptoms. Thanks so much. I rarely see a doctor so it was refreshing to address the issue so quickly & solve the problem and be done with it.

Dr.Harburg answered all my questions and concerns--he had a solution for everything I brought up and he did not in the least make me feel embarrassed to ask. // Very happy to have found a doctor that has a great sense of humor but also can gently give serious guidance and recommendations to solve my health issues.

Dr. made extra effort to contact another specialist to confirm an area of question - called me & ordered med recommended - which has helped.

It was a pleasure to see Dr. Harburg for my annual physical. This was only my second appointment with him and yet the comfort level with him was a ten.

I am a product of the Michigan educational system, starting with Ann Arbor public schools and continuing to undergraduate and medical school at the University of Michigan. I went to Portland for my residency and worked there for 30 years before moving to Eugene. I love the practice of internal medicine, and though I worked in the hospital in past years, I am currently in the outpatient clinic. My wife and I raised two daughters.

About my practice

I am board certified in both internal medicine (adult medicine) and geriatric medicine (seniors). I have taught residents from Oregon Health & Science University who rotated through Kaiser Permanente in the clinics. I have served as chief of my department and am currently the medical director of my clinic. I am involved in the local chapter of the American College of Physicians. I consider myself very tolerant of alternative approaches to health care, but ultimately I use the available medical evidence and current research to guide my care. I prefer to see older adults.

How I thrive

I believe lifestyle choices play a big role in overall health. I try to eat balanced meals and exercise regularly. I enjoy playing tennis at the local club. I contribute to the health of the community by donating to local organizations that serve people who need health care and can't afford it.
