Family Physician Jay Anderson, DO, has joined Samaritan Lincoln City Medical Center. He provides primary care for people of all ages.
He earned a bachelor’s degree at Portland State University and a medical degree at Western University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific-Northwest. He completed residency training at University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine.
Dr. Anderson’s love of science and learning led him into medicine.
“Being a clinician is the best opportunity to explore and engage these areas of interest and to serve the people in my community,” he said.
Dr. Anderson values open communication, and he builds trust with those around him.
Before he became a doctor, he was a technology entrepreneur and started several software companies.
“It has been an interesting journey, and one that I would not trade,” he said.
He has lived in the Pacific Northwest most of his life. Now that his three children are grown, he and his wife are looking forward to living at the coast, where they have enjoyed family vacations for the past 20 years.
“We are pretty outdoorsy,” he said. “There is so much that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. We plan to experience as much as we can!”
In his free time, Dr. Anderson enjoys riding bikes, road cycling, gravel biking and bike-packing with his wife.
