Providence Elderplace in Irvington Village welcomes new physician.

Chester North, M.D., is joining us at Irvington Village as the Providence ElderPlace primary care physician. Some of you may already know Dr. North as a physician at Providence Medical Group, The Plaza, located next door to Providence Portland Medical Center.

Dr. North most enjoys building relationships with his patients. He emphasizes patient education and wants his patients to take an active role in their health care.

“Their trust is my greatest reward,” he says. “My philosophy of care is that care is a partnership between the patient and the physician,” says Dr. North. “The physician advises and educates; the patient decides.”

Dr. North received a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Oklahoma State University and his medical degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock. He went on to complete his internship, residency and a fellowship in internal medicine as well as a residency in anesthesiology at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. He is board certified with the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Anesthesiology.

Please help us welcome Dr. North to Irvington Village!
