OVERVIEW

A construction worker and licensed contractor for 20 years, Bill Croson decided to start a new career and now it's Dr. Croson and he's practicing at the Coquille Medical Offices. "I was in California and Utah, but I did a lot of work in Idaho and Wyoming as well," Croson said. "When I was 40 I was working in Boise, Idaho and at that point I stopped working and sold my business and went back to school." Three years later Croson found himself in medical school at the University of Illinois at Chicago. "I finished my residence a little over a year ago," Croson said. "In that time I've been working in urgent care clinics and working in pain management. That's a specialty I adding to family medicine." According to Croson, having been in construction for 20 years, he's an avid reader of classified ads, which brought him to Coquille. "Dr. Sinnott placed an ad in the Family Medicine Journal when I was a second year resident and I got a hold of him right away," Croson said. "We had a good line of communication going and everything I could find on the web about this area seemed positive." Croson's wife, Dr. Marinell Croson, a veterinarian in our community, also returned to school at the age of 36 after a career in compensation for a large manufacturing company. "I was doing things like executive compensation, stock options, equity plans, merit pay systems," she said. When she returned to school she decided to follow her first love, which is animals and she became a veterinarian. In the past she trained guide dogs for the blind. "She's really good with that human animal interaction," he said. The Crosons have a two-year-old child named Hannah. "We were looking for a traditional name and it turns out you can spell Hannah all sorts of ways, Marinell said. Croson sees himself as a kind of conduit for health education and intends to bring the latest research information to our patients. "I want to bring that to my patients so that they're not just listening to a doctor telling them what to do, but also why they should be doing those things," he said. "I want to be part of a small community and the part that I feel I can be is guidance." The veterinarian in the family likes working with people who are having issues with their pets. "Maybe they're having a problem and they can't figure out what to do and I want to be involved in that and help them determine what to do," she said. "I want to work with them and help them find a course of treatment that will work for them because not everyone can afford the most expensive treatment you might find available at Corvallis." Not having spent their entire careers in medicine, the Crosons feel their life experience in other fields will help in their medical careers. "While we're relatively new to the medical field we come with this wealth of experience from other parts of our lives and I think this is going to be really helpful to us and for our patients," she said. "We have the ability to look at this with a different kind of experience." The Crosons have been involved in sculling. Sculling is rowing in boats that are about 12 inches wide and 26 feet long. The couple is now looking at kayaks and may even give sea kayaking a try. They are also interested in fishing, hiking, biking and music. According to the Crosons, the community has been very welcoming to them. "We've had terrific support from the people that we've met and the people that we work with both," she said. "We've really felt welcome."
