Biography

Kevin Carpenter, M.D., provides thorough and compassionate health care to the whole family. In his practice he deals with the entire spectrum of health issues, with added emphasis on prevention, pediatrics and sports medicine.

After earning his medical degree at Oregon Health & Science University, Dr. Carpenter completed his internship and residency at Elgin Air Force Base in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. “During my years in practice, I have been able to gain valuable experience in taking care of families,” he says. “Being the father of four boys has also helped me gain an appreciation for the family unit.”

Outside of medicine, Dr. Carpenter focuses his time and energy on his church and family. He has been a family physician in Gresham since 1998.

I live on the Westside but travel to Gresham just to see Dr. Carpenter. He is the best provider in my history with PHS. Always willing to listen, takes the time to answer all questions, responds to questions on My Chart, provides great referrals; he is genuinely concerned for the well being of his patients.
