Deborah Gordon, M.D, is the founder and medical director of Northwest Memory Center, LLC.

 

She has had a lifelong—well, since high school!—interest in health and wellness, which she has incorporated in an integrative medical practice in southern Oregon for more than thirty years. She has a strong interest in healthy and adoptable lifestyle choices that impact the appearance or persistence of health problems, with a particular focus in choices that affect cognitive health.

After obtaining a degree in English Literature, and a few years “sowing wild oats,” she attended medical school at the prestigious University of California at San Francisco and then went on to the affiliated Family Practice Residency program in Santa Rosa, California, where she served as Chief Resident.

In addition to her medical practice, she “walks her talk,” enjoying a nature-filled country home where she and her wife host numerous pets and also raise chickens and various other animals to fill the freezer and grace the dinner table. She is a competitive rower, a sometimes cyclist and hiker, and the founder of the Siskiyou Challenge, a multi-sport relay event that benefits her favorite charity, Rogue Valley Farm to School.
