Harald L. Schoeppner, M.D., Ph.D., FACP, FACG, AGAF

Board certified in gastroenterology, Dr. Schoeppner is a GI specialist at Legacy Medical Group-Gastroenterology.

I realized early on as a Medical student that Gastroenterology is the field in Medicine where I could find fulfillment and happiness. I wrote my dissertation focusing on patients with Inflammatory bowel diseases. During my residency I spent additional time rotating in GI. My fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital included a stint in basic science understanding the molecular basis of colon cancer.

Ultimately, I chose a career in clinical medicine combining my enthusiasm for the field and its huge potentials with my passion for patient care.

Additional training in endoscopic ultrasound was acquired in Munich, Germany, Charleston, SC. and Mayo clinic.

I stayed at my institution as director of Endoscopy from 1994 until 1997 before my family and I moved to the Pacific Northwest.

While in Tacoma, WA I developed one of the first Hospitalist Gastroenterology service in the US and stayed there from 1998 until 2007. This combined my interests in acute care GI and all the technical and organisational skills running a busy service.

From 2007 until 2012, I established a busy GI practice in Walla Walla, WA introducing tertiary endoscopy skills within a framework of general GI. In addition, I serviced as Governor for the American College of Gastroenterology.

My current practice will offer both basic and general GI services as well as highly skilled endoscopic techniques. Legacy has given me the opportunity to introduce state of the Gastroenterology and Endoscopy while keeping the patients and their families still the center point of all care.

My core philosophy has always been to treat each patient like a family member and not to hesitate to reach out to my colleagues in case I do not know the answers.

Dr. Schoeppner received his medical degree from University of Wuerzburg, Germany and then completed an internship and residency in internal medicine and was awarded a fellowship in gastroenterology at Henry Ford Hospital in Michigan.

Clinical interests include inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer and liver, gallbladder and pancreatic conditions.

He enjoys biking, reading, the opera and watching the Timbers.
