Dr. Bacon's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bacon "I grew up in rural northeastern Minnesota and have since moved to semi-tropical northeastern Washington. I love wild things and wild places, rural living, gardening, writing, music and helping people. I am married, have four children and five grandchildren. I am designing a chicken coop with the help of my grandkids, should prove to be a work of art. I am committed to working health disparities at home such as homelessness, poverty, addiction, mental illness and hopelessness, and internationally to teaching family medicine in Africa and working on peace between two warring tribes in northern Kenya. My wife Shelley and I have a bike hostel for bicycle travelers to stay, and we started the first Oxford House in northeastern Washington for people in recovery.

Dr. Bacon is the most wonderful, caring, considerate, compassionate, down-to-earth Dr. I have ever known. He is there for his patients with care and concern.
