About

Bio

I have been practicing medicine since 1970. I was a full time ER physician for the first 10 years of practice in the Orlando, Florida area. Since 1980 I have been in General/Family Practice in Ontario, OR and Payette, ID doing full spectrum Family Medicine, both as an employed physician and as an independent/solo physician. In 2010-11 I worked as a St. Alphonsus employed Hospitalist in addition to part time office practice when not doing the hospitalist work; then 2012 I resumed office practice. This year, I limited my practice to being the Medical Director for Care at Home, a Home Health Agency; and I am also doing onsite Primary Care with XL Primary Care, which involves "house calls" for disabled patients in their home or care facilities who find going to an office to be very difficult. We are connected to hospice through XL Hospice, the original company that started the primary care portion to help people who are not yet hospice qualified, but impaired enough that they benefit from the provider coming to them rather than having to be taken to an office somewhere outside of their usual comfortable environment. It is a bit like the "Old Country Doc making house calls".

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.
