Dr. Binder's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Binder "I was born north of the border in Toronto, Ontario. I earned my undergraduate degree in 1991 and completed my family practice residency at the University of Toronto from 1991 to 1993. I started practicing family medicine in Barrie, Ontario and then in Longview, Washington before moving to Bellingham in 2000. I enjoy the wide variety in family medicine afforded by working with patients from pediatrics all the way to geriatrics. My main emphasis is on preventive medicine, including healthy lifestyles. I am married and have two sons. I enjoy skiing and skating (due to my Canadian roots), hiking, biking, and gardening. Reading is also a favorite past time along with spending time with my family."
