Meet Bruce E. Perry, MD

“Some people follow a lifelong calling to medicine. I was motivated by bad luck. I broke my leg playing college rugby and was treated by a doctor who was not very good. Reflecting on the experience, I realized I could do the job a lot better—and that I wanted to. I switched from marine biology to pre-med and have never looked back.

“In almost three decades since I finished my residency, I have been driven by that desire to be better. That means I never stop trying to improve my own techniques and I never stop learning new ones. I work hard to stay on the leading edge of research and development and when I believe a new procedure has been adequately tested and proven effective, I get the training I need to perform it.

I want each of my patients to get the very best treatment possible—both personally and medically. My goal is to treat each patient with respect and compassion, from the baby born with a clubfoot to the 90 year old who wants to keep dancing. I love being able to make a positive difference in my patients’ lives and help them resolve problems that hold them back from enjoying the activities they love.”

Karen Perry

Office Manager / Administrator

“I have lived in Grants Pass for 22 years and been in orthopedics since arriving.  I have worked with this office for 11 years. I find orthopedics such a rewarding area of the medical field. We see a lot of people that come to us in great amounts of pain and we have the honor of helping them through that to a new way of life.

Bruce and I have been married for 8 years and enjoy working together and spending time with our three German Shepherd pups and our mixed brood of kids.  Together we have seven children and 10 grandchildren.  We love traveling and heading to the beach any chance we can get.”

Sue Browning

Lead Medical Assistant

“I am blessed to have the privilege of serving as Dr. Perry’s Medical Assistant, providing pre- and post-surgical care to patients on their journey from pain to recovery.

I am a wife of almost 43 years, with six children, 23 grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. I also have served and continue to serve as a missionary to Africa and the Amazon Basin jungles. My life is a great adventure, with daily pleasures for which I am truly thankful!”

Mandy Aguilar

Surgery Scheduler / Medical Assistant

“I began working for Dr. Perry in March 2016 after relocating to Grants Pass.  I am loving my job and learning about orthopedics. I also enjoy our patients and the great variety of people who come in. The interaction I have with them is teaching me so much about this job. I have three sons and they are my life when I am not at work. They are 17, 14 and 5.  They keep me on my toes every day.”

Kat Burrows

Receptionist / Scheduler

“I have lived in Grants Pass the better part of my life. I went to local schools and have watched our town change and grow. I am an outdoors kind of gal. I love fishing, camping, hiking, and spending time with my grandchildren. I love what I do and the people I meet every day at Genesis Orthopedic. I am often shown that life can be a roller coaster, and sometimes you just have to throw your hands in the air and enjoy the ride!”
