Dear patients and referring providers,
I am retiring from my practice at Salem Gastroenterology Consultants effective December 31st, 2020.
My colleagues and staff at Salem Gastroenterology and Salem Endoscopy Center will provide ongoing, excellent care for my current and former patients. It has been a privilege to be a part of Salem’s healthcare community and to enjoy the trust of my patients and referring providers for the last 31 years.

Salem Gastro is proud to announce, for two years in a row, we’ve been named a 2020 Top Workplace! We’re thrilled to have been included on the list, and thankful to our employees, who made this happen.
The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
Yes, we are open, but in a limited fashion. All of our Office Visits are being converted to Telehealth Visits. This means you will meet one of our providers via phone or video call. Our surgery center is open, but serving a very limited set of patients. Mainly, it is currently limited to patients experiencing symptoms or that must be seen in order to avoid a trip to the hospital.
As the Covid-19 threat tapers off and executive orders relax we will begin moving back to our regular services. If you are scheduled for either type of visit, know that our staff will reach out to you to reschedule or change the type of appointment you are scheduled for.
We kicked off Colon Cancer Awareness Month with Dress in Blue Day – Friday the 6th. We’ll be dressing blue throughout the month and wearing this year’s “This is my colon cancer fighting shirt” t-shirts every Friday. Join us and dress in blue!
Why? This year, more than 147,000 people will be diagnosed with this highly preventable disease. They will join more than 1.4 million colorectal cancer patients and survivors living today. We go blue for them, their families, and their community. >>
It was a busy year for us at Salem Gastro.
A couple of highlights:
We received 2019 Top Workplaces award from the Oregonian – Oregon Live. This is a big deal! This award is the result of a survey of our employees and their reflections on their workplace. Salem Gastro is honored to be part of this group of distinguished businesses. It is great to be able to celebrate our success in creating a positive work environment.
