Dr. Hatara has spent most her life on the East Coast where she completed her Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology training at George Washington University, in Washington DC. Dr. Hatara and her family chose central Oregon as a place to live and practice medicine for the same reason so many others have: the love of the outdoors and the family friendly atmosphere of the high desert.
Dr. Hatara is board certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. She is a member of American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and American College of Gastroenterology (ACG ). She had published several articles in peer reviewed journals about colon cancer screening and prevention.
Although her professional interests span the realm of general Gastroenterology, she has particular interests in colon cancer screening and prevention, Gastrointestinal bleeding, Gastroesophageal Reflux and motility as well as women’s health.
