Following his time as a teacher and a scientist, Ewen Harrison, M.D., was drawn to medicine. "I found that I love everthing to do with the science of medicine as well as the opportunity to listen to patient stories and help them through difficult decisions," he says.
In his practice, Dr. Harrison most enjoys working one-on-one with patients and to use his knowledge in combination with patient goals. "Everyone wants a doctor who listens to their concerns with an open mind," he says. "I want to be that doctor for my patients. Family medicine is the best place for me to make a positive contribution to public health." After earning his medical degree from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Dr. Harrison is completing his residency with the Providence Milwaukie Family Medicine program. Dr. Harrison was born in Miami, Fla. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his two daughters, reading and doing anything outdoors.
