First and foremost, Matthew became a nurse practitioner out of a desire to care for people. He chose nephrology because he was fascinated with the complexity and function of the kidneys and how they work together with other body systems to affect a patient's overall health. Now, Matthew works with patients of all ages who have acute and chronic kidney conditions including stones, early and late stage renal failure and dialysis care. He enjoys spending time with his patients providing education about appropriate treatment options and healthy choices that can improve their quality of life.
Matthew graduated with his BS from Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR. He received his Masters in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner in Richland, WA. He is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Matthew is Board Certified in Family Medicine.
