Anthony DeChristopher is a board certified family nurse practitioner. Anthony grew up in Central Oregon and is a graduate of Redmond High School. Before pursuing a career as a nurse practitioner, he served over 9 years in the United States Army Special Forces. It was during his career as a Green Beret that he became fascinated with medicine and the pervasive need for health care.
He received his undergraduate degree from Liberty University. Before completion of his graduate degree at Seattle University, Anthony worked as a registered nurse at an inpatient psychiatric hospital in West Seattle.
Anthony chose primary care because he loves the relationship aspect of the practice. He has a wide range of interests that include preventive health, diabetes, hypertension, and mental health. He places a strong emphasis on shared decision making and strives to educate his patients on their disease state, health maintenance, and disease prevention in order to improve health outcomes and overall quality of life for his patients.
“I believe each of my patients is a unique individual whose life circumstances directly affect their current health and wellness. Treating patients with respect and dignity and acting with empathy is critical to developing trust, communicating effectively, and providing compassionate care.”
Anthony is married and has one son and two daughters. Redmond is the perfect town for their active family. They enjoy camping, fishing, biking, trail running, rock climbing at Smith Rock, and attending youth sporting events.
