W. Patrick

Working with patients during my fellowship at NY State Department Of Health AIDS Institute cemented my interest in dermatology. I seek to bring my curiosity, compassion and collaboration to my interactions with patients. I am also intrigued by how art and science intersect and have enjoyed working with students, clinicians and patients within the galleries of an art museum.


I grew up on the East coast but have called Portland home since 2017. In my free time, my partner, Erik and I enjoy hiking, exploring food carts, and discovering new Pinot Noirs. I also enjoy reading fiction and strengthening my Spanish language skills.
