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.
