Allen considers it an honor to have the opportunity to be a physician and work with people from all walks of life. He grew up in Cathlamet, Washington and feels fortunate to be able to work and raise his family in White Salmon.

The wide range of outdoor activities available in the Mid Columbia Gorge drew Allen and his wife, Dr. Alicia Giménez, to the area. Dr. LaBerge enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, golfing,  wood working, hiking, skiing, and remaining physically active.  Together they enjoy watching ball games, attending the theater and cooking fabulous meals.

Christopher Samuels, MD

Dr. Samuels believes that rural family medicine is all about the members of a community taking care of one another.  For health care providers, that means serving people you depend on and respect. For patients, it means receiving care from people you know and trust.  An intimate setting, such as we have at NorthShore Medical Group and Skyline Hospital allows us to deliver personalized, life long, high quality, up-to-date care. Dr. Samuels look forward to caring for people of all ages, but is especially interested in taking care of geriatric patients.

Dr. Samuels, his wife, Sarah, and their two children spend their time together working around their home, reading, hiking, camping, skiing and biking.

Dr. Troy Witherite

Dr. Witherrite believes that rural family medicine remains the ideal for the family medicine specialty. It gives doctors the ability to provide full spectrum care for patients from, obstetrics & pediatrics to geriatrics and everything stage in between. He finds that having the opportunity to care for you and your entire family is very rewarding.

Besides being close to where he grew up in Pendleton, OR, Dr. Troy Witherrite chose to move to the area because of the nice blend of cultures, and climates that the area offers. He chose to practice at NorthShore because there is a strong spirit of independence here as well as a wonderfully diverse group of professionals to work with.

Outside the office, Dr. Witherrite enjoys backpacking, hiking, trail running, mountain biking, and CrossFit.   He also loves spending time with his wife, Dr. Liette Witherrite and their two daughters, Lila and Sage. He has also been enjoying fixing up their nearly century old farmhouse. To date they have built a large chicken coop, greenhouse, and begun restoring the barn.
