Dr. Quiner’s philosophy of medical practice is to serve as a guide or pilot (the seafaring kind of pilot) for his patients’ wellness and health care. By using tools of evidence-based medicine and coordinated referrals to specialists, he aims to provide the best value, a comfortable experience and quality medical care with an emphasis on prevention for his patients. He enjoys assisting patients in healthy lifestyle changes, cholesterol management, asthma and allergies.

When he was in high school Dr. Quiner became a beekeeper and at one point was managing eighty colonies. Since his retirement from the Navy he has gotten back into this fascinating hobby and has found himself catching swarms and looking forward to harvesting delicious Oregon honey, but mostly works to keep his hives strong so they can do that critical pollination job we depend on.
Dr. Quiner and his wife have three children; His son is following in Dr. Quiner’s medical footsteps and is currently a resident in OB/GYN. When he’s not tending to patients or bees Dr. Quiner enjoys being with his family, gardening, scuba diving and genealogy.
