Dr. Tim, as he prefers to be called, has been a pediatrician for 25 years. He graduated from Johns Hopkins University and went to medical school at Columbia University and completed his residency at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

“I feel like I’ve had an amazing career so far, practicing in California, and Georgia and experiencing medicine and care all over the world,” Dr. Tim said. “I feel lucky to be always able to keep caring for children and their families at the focus of my professional life.”

He most recently was a pediatrician and hospitalist at Meadows Regional Medical Center in Vidalia, Georgia. Dr. Tim has made medical mission trips to Zimbabwe, Kenya, Haiti, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic.

Dr. Tim got his first look at Southeast Alaska from a cruise ship in 2017. An avid outdoorsman, he was taken with the scenery and impressed with the people he met in Ketchikan.

“On our first trip to Ketchikan, it rained the whole day we were here,” said Dr. Tim. “My fiancé Marie and I were amazed at how beautiful the place was even in the rain and we had a blast that day.  When a job opportunity came up 2 years later, we knew we had to look into it.”

Dr. Tim and Marie look forward to joining the Ketchikan community.

Patients wishing to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tim can call 907-225-4463
