William Toffler, MD is a Professor Emeritus of Family Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University where he taught for 34 years and had a wide scope of practice ranging from delivering babies to geriatric and palliative care. He is one of three co-founders of Holy Family Catholic Clinic and brings a wealth of experience to his patients within our Practice.

Dr. Toffler is also co-founder and National Director of Physicians for Compassionate Care Education Foundation (PCCEF), a non-profit that promotes compassionate care for severely ill patients without sanctioning or assisting their suicide. PCCEF physicians affirm an ethic based on the principle that all human life is inherently of value and that the physician’s roles are to heal illness, alleviate suffering, and provide comfort for the sick and dying. He has also been a member of the Physicians Resource Council at Focus on the Family for over 20 years.

He is committed to defending the long-standing, medical prohibition against doing harm. He is frequently invited to speak about these and other medical ethical issues at both national and international conferences.

He has 7 children and 22 grandchildren.

Her decision to practice internal medicine in the office setting came while she was on her first medical mission in the Amazon region of Brazil with Helping Hands Medical Missions where she realized she wanted to serve patients as whole people: body, mind, and spirit. She creates long-term relationships with her patients assisting in healing in any way she can.

Creating the most pleasant patient experience possible by delivering superior medical care and outstanding customer service is the driving force behind Dr. Michael Sherman’s practice. “Medicine has been a natural culmination of my science training as a Ph.D. Chemist and living out my faith by serving the patients within my community.” His board certifications in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics allow Dr. Sherman to be a specialist for both adults and children. Dr. Sherman loves spending time with his family and church community, and he enjoys many outdoor activities including hiking, backpacking, mountain climbing, boating and fishing.
