Welcome Dr. Richard Burke

Willamette Valley Medical Center is pleased to announce the addition of Richard Burke, MD to our medical staff.

Richard Burke, MD hails from the northwest and after being away in the Midwest and California, is ready to come home and enjoy all 4 seasons. Growing up, Dr. Burke enjoyed and excelled in science and math and always had a career in medicine in the back of his mind. After receiving his undergraduate degree he spent a year working as a phlebotomist in Washington. It was at this time that that he decided medicine was the right fit for him. Completing Medical School and his Internship at Creighton University in Nebraska, he moved to Illinois to attend Loyola University for his Radiology Residency. Going one step further, he continued his education in California at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he completed his musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship.

 

Dr. Burke says that he “particularly enjoys the fields of anatomy, pathology, and technology, which are a large part of what radiology is all about. I chose Radiology because it enables me to be involved in the care of patients with a variety of medical conditions affecting nearly every organ system in the body.” He goes on to say that “while I enjoy helping in the diagnosis of different ailments and assisting clinicians with patient care, my favorite part of practicing medicine remains talking with patients and working to improve their lives.”

 

Dr. Burke and his wife Laura have a 22 month old son named Adam and are expecting their second very soon. This busy family enjoys picking blueberries, going on hikes, playing dinosaurs, and exploring their new hometown together. Dr. Burke says he is “most excited to become a part of dedicated and caring healthcare community.”
