Medical College

Loma Linda Medical School, Loma Linda, CA


Hinsdale Family Practice Residency, Hinsdale, IL

Dr. Bacon graduated from Loma Linda Medical School in 1984. He completed his residency in Family Practice at Hinsdale Hospital in Illinois before serving in Malawi, Africa for three years. He and his family moved to Colville in 1990, and he has practiced in Colville, Grand Coulee, Republic, and Spokane since then. He loves to serve people who can never pay him back by going to Africa nearly every year for 1 – 4 weeks to practice medicine and teach family physicians in their own countries to be excellent clinicians. His dream is to build a medical school in Ethiopia, and plans are coming together for the school to become a reality.
