LEGACY MEDICAL GROUP–SURGICAL ONCOLOGY
As a surgical oncologist dedicated to improving the lives of people living with breast cancer and melanoma, Dr. Garreau chose to work at Legacy "because of the way the people are valued."
“I am supported in having a flexible work schedule so I can spend time with my daughter," she says. "I am supported as a surgeon by having phenomenal practice partners and colleagues across the system. We provide safe and excellent care using the most current techniques and equipment. I am able to do research and help lead change in cancer care.”
This is her life. This is her Legacy.

LEGACY MEDICAL GROUP–SALMON CREEK FAMILY MEDICINE
"Primary care is such a rewarding field to work in. In family practice, I’m privileged to care for patients of all ages with many diverse health conditions and backgrounds. As time goes on and I gain their trust, they bring their families to me. We have a team in our office that continually strives to demonstrate care and respect to everyone that walks in the door and our patients know it."

LEGACY MEDICAL GROUP–WOODBURN
Dr. Okuns moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2011 to join Legacy Medical Group.
"I have enjoyed working for Legacy as the organization has been committed to doing whats right for their patients and employees. I was drawn to primary care as it allows you to provide longitudinal care for patients over time. I truly cannot imagine doing any other job. I consider myself fortunate and privileged to care for my patients and I am grateful to Legacy for providing me with that opportunity."
When Dr. Okuns is not working, he enjoys cooking and spending time with his wife and three kids.
This is his life. This is his legacy.
