Dr Stenger is a palliative care consultant at Legacy Health and Medical Director of the Palliative Care Service.

He received his medical degree from the University of Connecticut and he did his residency in Redding CA, part of the UC Davis system. He was a founder of a rural health clinic in far northern CA, working there until 1991 when he and family relocated to the East Coast.
