Meet Dr. Joshua M. Reese

Joshua M. Reese, M.D.

Make an appointment by calling: 503.261.7200

Dr. Reese graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. During medical school he worked extensively in the Bedlam Clinic, a mission clinic for uninsured patients in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He married an Oregonian, and she easily convinced him to move to the Northwest, where he completed his residency at Providence Milwaukie Family Medicine Residency here in the Portland metro area. After graduation he joined South Tabor Family Physicians, where he enjoys the broad scope of family practice, from newborn care to geriatrics.

Dr. Reese and his family love the outdoors. They are often out on the trail in the Smoky or Rocky Mountains or the Gorge. In the fall though, this takes a back seat to Big 12 football, as Dr. Reese faithfully cheers on his Sooners. The rest of the time you will probably find him with his Akita out in the garden or trying to fill every windowsill with plants at home.
