Dr. Sathianathan was born in India, and moved to Canada in 1989. He holds dual citizenship in Canada and the US. He graduated in 1995 from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Science degree in the Microbiology Honors program. In 1996 he went on to study medicine at St. George's University School of Medicine. His clinical rotations led him initially to the island of St. Vincent, and later on to England at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester, as well as Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury. It was during his Psychiatry rotation at Barnett General Hospital that he married his sweetheart, Rachel, in December of 1999. The majority of his clinical rotations between 1999-2000 were completed at Coney Island Hospital in Brooklyn, NY.
Following graduation from Medical School in 2000, Dr. Sathianathan completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Brookdale University Hospital in Brooklyn, New York in 2004. While in Brooklyn, their boys Jonah and Jasher were born. He initially visited Roseburg in 2004, and fell in love with the area as he drove up Highway 138 and then to Cooper Creek Reservoir in Sutherlin in the hours prior to his departure back to New York.
Dr. Sathianathan worked as a hospitalist at Mercy Medical Center from June of 2005 to May of 2014. It was in this time period that he and his wife were blessed with two girls, Jaedyn and Jaira-lily. He continues to be amazed at the beauty of Oregon, and thoroughly enjoys taking his family hiking, fishing, and exploring the wilderness.
While working as a hospitalist for the last 9 years at Mercy Medical Center he has served on the Ethics committee, as well as the Quality Improvement Committee, and hopes to continue to do so in the future. Dr. Sathianathan considers it a privilege to now be a part of the well-respected staff of Evergreen Family Medicine, and looks forward to meeting the challenges of outpatient medicine.
