From the Provider

"Caring for you, my patients, has been the most rewarding part of my career in medicine. I have come to know many of you and your families as friends, and I am honored that many of you had the trust and confidence in me to ask me to care for two, and even three, generations. Some of you have been with me since I first started at Oregon Health Sciences University over 25 years ago.

It has been an enriching experience to contribute to the advancement of women's health locally and to become a part of Women's Healthcare Associates, which has grown into one of the largest and most respected women's clinics in the state. It is a testament to our Oregon City team and their commitment to our practice and our patients. I have practiced alongside my colleagues here for over two decades and I know you will continue to receive the best possible care expertly and compassionately.

Thinking back on these years, I have most enjoyed being a part of each patient's life. You have shared with me your personal struggles, losses, and triumphs. It has been that sharing in life’s struggle and passion that has given me and the others around me the strength and desire to continue to provide compassionate care, even during the most difficult of times. Few people have the opportunity I have had to work in a career so rewarding. A day has not gone by that I have not been enriched by my experiences here. You have been a special gift in my life, for which I will forever be grateful. I will remember these experiences for as long as I live.

I wish you all good health and happiness in the future."
