I have always loved long term relationships with patients, and never enjoyed the time pressures of brief patient appointments in a high volume clinic. I grew up in central Texas, graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in California in 2005, and completed an internal medicine residency in Portland, OR in 2008. After residency I practiced hospital medicine for 4 years, followed by primary care clinic for 3 years. I then took a little break from medicine after I had my daughter and started daydreaming about having my own practice.
I heard about Pamela Wible, MD, a doctor in Oregon who pioneered the “ideal medical care” movement. I discovered her information on the internet and took a course she offered on setting up a low overhead clinic, one that frees the physician to spend more time with each patient. This is the culmination of a dream that started when I was a child, and I am excited to work for you!
