Putting my experience to work

Oregonians deserve better.


As a practicing anesthesiologist I have seen first-hand the impact of our broken health care system. Patients have asked me to give them less medicine or have avoided an important procedure in order to save money. Nearly 250,000 Oregonians are uninsured and 1 in 10 Oregonians experienced a gap in coverage last year. Even people with insurance often cannot afford care due to high deductibles and co-pays. And medical bills are the number one cause of bankruptcy across the country.


Health care costs across the United States, including right here in Oregon, have continued to rise despite worse national health outcomes and higher infant mortality rates than other countries that spend much less on health care.

Oregonians deserve better.
