The Oregon Clinic

The Oregon Clinic’s Northwest Surgical division is pleased to welcome Kevin Dennis, PA-C.  Dennis is a physician assistant specializing in cardiothoracic surgery. He will be based at Northwest Surgical’s Salem office at 875 Oak St.

Originally from Eugene, Ore., Dennis graduated from the University of Oregon in 1998, where he majored in general science and later did post graduate study in microbiology.  He received his masters of science in physician assistant studies this past August from Pacific University in Hillsboro. Formerly an aero-medical technician in the US Air Force Reserve, Dennis worked for several years in pharmaceutical sales with Pfizer prior to beginning his master’s program.

Dennis now lives in Salem and enjoys volunteering at community clinics, hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding and photography.

“We are excited to have Kevin Dennis join our practice.  His experience will be a wonderful asset to our cardiac surgery team,” said Michelle McIntosh, director of Operations.

“The Oregon Clinic provides a wonderful opportunity to provide excellent healthcare for patients with a very wide and diverse range of disease. I appreciate the team-oriented approach to healthcare that is experienced in the hospital and in surgery,” said Dennis.
