As an infectious disease physician, Dr. Ron Dworkin believes his most important role is to improve the quality of care for his patients and those cared for at Providence. “I really emphasize communication with my patients,” says Dr. Dworkin. “It’s what I would want physicians to do for my family.”
He chose the field of infectious disease for its intellectually challenging nature. “I entered medical school the year the first AIDS patients were identified,” said Dr. Dworkin. “I’ve experienced the highs and lows taking care of HIV from the beginning of the epidemic.”
Dr. Dworkin earned his medical degree from Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York City and completed his residency at the University of California, San Francisco. He also completed fellowship training at Mt. Zion hospital in San Francisco.
In his spare time, Dr. Dworkin enjoys cycling, fishing and hunting with his dog, Juliet.
