The aspect of mentally and physically helping solve complex problems drew
Dr. Moon to become a surgeon, but he felt pulled toward medicine at a
young age while seeing members of his family work as doctors. Dr. Moon
moved to Oregon from the Midwest after training in a larger community.
He has since practiced his entire 24-year-career in The Dalles, and very
much enjoys living in a small town. Dr. Moon has two children, born and
raised in The Gorge, and spends most of his free time with them. Otherwise,
he enjoys outdoor activities, such as kite boarding, hiking, tennis and
occasionally skiing. Dr. Moon's surgical interests include gastrointestinal
disorders and endoscopy, colon and rectal disorders, arterial vascular
and venous disorders, carpal tunnel surgery and laparoscopic hernia repair.
