Doctor of Internal Medicine

Dr. Richard MacDonell graduated from Georgetown Medical School, then completed his residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Washington affiliate in Spokane, WA. During medical school and his residency, Dr. MacDonell volunteered with a medical team in the Dominican Republic and Honduras.

He enjoys active, ongoing learning and has achieved national recognition for Board Certification in Internal Medicine. In 1998, Dr. MacDonell returned to his home state of California where he worked as a Hospitalist, then moved into private practice.

In addition to running his private practice, Dr. MacDonell served as a physician volunteer with Volunteers in Medicine, and on the Healthcare Committee for the Bend Chamber of Commerce. He has been the Chief of St. Charles Medical Center’s Medical Service Section Primary Care Division Internal Medicine, and has been a member of the St. Charles Medical Center’s Bioethics Committee.
