Stephen Hallas, DO, has joined Samaritan Family Medicine Resident Clinic. He provides primary health care to patients of all ages, specializing in osteopathic manipulative treatment and holistic preventive medicine.
He earned a bachelor’s degree at Bates College and a medical degree at College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific. He completed residency training at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center.
While he was studying biology and chemistry in college, his father was diagnosed with diabetes, which inspired him to become a doctor.
“I felt that becoming a physician would be a good way to integrate the science I was studying with humanism,” he said.
Dr. Hallas listens to his patients and works with them to come up with a care plan together.
“Family medicine chose me as a specialty,” he said. “I like being able to connect with generations of a family.”
Dr. Hallas has strong ties to the community and chose Samaritan because he was familiar with the health system’s operations, values and care for diverse populations.
“I look forward to Corvallis being my home for many years to come,” he said.
In his free time, Dr. Hallas is learning to play blues guitar. He enjoys spending time outdoors, fly fishing, skiing and exploring new places.
He is accepting new patients and can be reached at 541-768-5142.
