I didn't plan on being a family doctor.

When I started applying for medical schools I had already done graduate work in forensics, and had assisted autopsies with the world famous Dr. Werner Spitz in Detroit. I thought I would follow in his footsteps. But pathology...

I just celebrated 6 months open! Let us celebrate by reliving the week!


I usually work later hours on Mondays. But, a patient calls and is flying out of state in the afternoon, he thinks he might have strep throat. I pop in early, do an in-office rapid strep test...

I've been derelict about blogging, I know! But business has been good and I've been busy saving lives (or at least meddling in them)! 

Oodle has been going strong and I even have paid myself once! Granted, it was about 20% of my usual monthly salary but it wasn't n...

On 1/2/18 Oodle Family Medicine officially opened its doors! Here is an idea of how the week went:

Today I met with representatives from Interpath laboratory. The only independent lab left in this area. It's family-owned and operates out of Pendelton, OR. They provided me with pricing for labs and we got started on setting up for Oodle's opening. When I got their sp...

The last five days have been eventful. I'm sore and exhausted and ready for more! Let us proceed in reverse chronological order.

Day 5

Today, I laid down flooring. I tore up the carpet and got things started with help from a good friend (who pretty much knew what he was...

Finally, my DPC practice, Oodle Family Medicine, can announce its new official location!

After months of searching, and a few frustrations, I have signed a lease for a place in the Renton Highlands.

It's a third floor suite, quite small, with high ceilings and a peek-a-b...

So now that I'm officially not an employee, I am free to volunteer with reckless abandon! This week I will be providing primary care and women's health care at a free pop-up clinic in downtown Seattle at Key Arena.

This clinic is incredible - medical care...
