Dr. Wolfe's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wolfe "I have practiced internal medicine in Oregon since 1978 initially in Seaside and then Tualatin. I am passionate about providing state-of-the-art preventative care. A renewed interest in addressing the leading cause of death in western culture (coronary heart disease) came to me after becoming certified as a lipidologist in 2006. This knowledge and advanced lipid testing has helped me greatly reduce risk in my patients by identifying vulnerabilities not otherwise discoverable using standard approaches. I believe that a majority of the onset and progression of chronic disease, that I was trained to treat, is avoidable by helping patients make better lifestyle choices. This requires more time per individual than I could provide in the traditional health delivery model and prompted my change to a 'direct care' approach. I'm an avid road cyclist; I consider exercise essential for a healthy brain, body and spirit. I have greatly benefitted personally, as have many of my patients, by adhering to a scientifically based 'whole food plant based' diet. I'm board certified in internal medicine and am a Diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Lipidology. I graduated from The U of O Honors College Phi Beta Kappa, Senior Twelve, took an MD at OHSU and finished residency at Emanual Hospital here in Portland"
