In Ketchikan he worked as one of three pediatricians on the island. The pediatric practice in Ketchikan includes providing clinic and hospital care for patients from newborn to young adult with all kinds of medical problems.

He attended deliveries, medevaced very sick patients (when the Southeast Alaska stormy weather allowed!), and delighted in seeing the children of Southeast grow up.
