Parenting is one of life’s greatest joys, but is also hard work. As a pediatrician, my role is to be your partner and advocate when it comes to your child’s health and well-being. I strive to approach every relationship in a calm, warm, collaborative manner, supporting you as parents. My greatest satisfaction is getting to know and care for your children, from newborns to young adults, with all the growth in between!"– Douglas Lincoln, MD, MPH
The son of an Air Force pilot and elementary school teacher, Dr. Lincoln had the opportunity to live internationally and across the country during his childhood. He continued sampling life in various locales throughout his education, majoring in biology at Brown, and then attending medical school at Tulane University, where he also received his Master of Public Health.
In medical school he met his wife, who is now an OB/GYN, and together they fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and moved to Portland to finish their medical training. Dr. Lincoln completed residencies in Pediatrics as well as Preventive Medicine at OHSU.
Following completion of his residencies, he worked as a solo pediatrician at an underserved community health center in northeastern Pennsylvania via the National Health Service Corps, and joins Metropolitan Pediatrics after serving as the medical director of OHSU’s General Pediatrics clinic.
Devoted to providing comprehensive care to every child in a caring and family-centered way, Dr. Lincoln looks forward to working in collaboration with caregivers to help children thrive. Special areas of interest in his practice include helping families meet their breastfeeding goals, including evaluation and treatment of tongue tie; incorporating positive parenting strategies; participating in advocacy and public policy around child health issues; and teaching medical students.
In his free time, Dr. Lincoln enjoys DIY projects around the house, reading, hiking, and exploring the Pacific Northwest with his wife and two young sons.
