About

Bio

I attended the University of Minnesota Medical School and then The Mayo Clinic for radiation oncology residency. After that, I moved to Portland, Oregon and work for The Oregon Clinic, a private multispecialty practice. I have 8 wonderful, dedicated and top-notch partners and we take care of patients at three facilities (Providence Portland Medical Center, Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, and Clackamas Radiation Oncology Center). My primary focus is GI cancer (esophageal, stomach, hepatobiliary, pancreas, colorectal, anal), but I also dedicate myself to many other cancer types and technologies within radiation oncology (stereotactic body radiation therapy, gamma knife stereotactic radiosurgery for malignant and benign brain tumors/conditions).

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
