Michael cares for patients of all ages with orthopedic injuries or conditions. He is driven by guiding patients to reach their goals and getting them back to what they love. His interest in medicine began at an early age after sustaining a significant injury. He was inspired by the trust his family placed in his doctors and the team approach to care.
After working as an orthopedics physician assistant at Hope Orthopedics in Salem, Oregon, Michael is excited to make the transition to Central Oregon to join the team of multidisciplinary providers at The Center. As a former athlete that played football in college, he looks forward to participating in the many active recreational opportunities in Central Oregon. He enjoys rock climbing, mountain biking, surfing, and snowboarding.
