and the greater Central Oregon community.
Anthony DeChristopher is a board-certified family nurse practitioner and specializes in physical medicine and chronic pain. Anthony enjoys the relationship aspect of the practice and loves getting to know patients on a personal level in order to help them identify and eliminate the source of their pain. Anthony enjoys collaborating with the other providers at Advanced Pain Solutions to provide next level care for our patients.
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, the resilience of the human body, and the pervasive need for healthcare.
He received his undergraduate degree from Liberty University and his graduate degree at Seattle University where he specialized in primary care. 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.
From Anthony’s past experience as a primary care provider, he understands firsthand how widespread the use of opioid medication is in the management of chronic pain. Anthony is excited to join Advanced Pain Solutions because he sees the real need to offer better options to the community for treating chronic pain.
Anthony is married and has one son and two daughters. Redmond is the perfect town for their active family. They enjoy camping, kayaking, fishing, biking, trail running, rock climbing at Smith Rock, and attending/coaching youth soccer.
