Richard began his medical career in 1976 as a paramedic and fireman in Eugene, OR. He then moved to Portland to pursue an advanced medical degree, graduating from the East-West College of Massage in 1999, and the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2004.
Richard integrates his allopathic experience with his holistic degree to create a “whole being” approach to medicine. Treating the spiritual body along with the physical body gets at the root of problems, resolves secondary symptomatic presentations, and keeps the chronic symptoms from reoccurring.
