The Team

James Biemer, MD

Dr Biemer has provided primary care to adults as a board certified internal medicine physician for over 20 years. After completing his residency at Georgetown University and additional fellowship training in research and teaching at the Portland VAMC and OHSU, he has practiced in the Portland area almost exclusively at St Vincent Medical Center, where he recently completed a two year term as the elected President of the Medical Staff (2012-2014).

As a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine since 2003, he has developed an interest in the evolving field of Age Management Medicine- preserving and protecting functional years of life. This has continued in recent years with his association with the American College of Sports Medicine, spurring interest in particular in working with aging athletes (and those who aspire to be one!). As an avid triathlete and distance competitor he is especially interested in working with active aging athletes.


Kazumi Schoen (CMA/Ideal Protein Coach)

Kazumi was born in Japan, trained as a medical assistant in Portland and has been in this field for over 15 years. She has experienced working in a cardiology office in the past and has been working with Dr. Biemer since 2005.

Kazumi is also a certified personal trainer and a weight management specialist, certified by American Council on Exercise. She has a special interest in diet and lifestyle modification for weight loss. 


Molly Washburn (Ideal Protein Coach)

Molly is a wife and mother of two. She was busy balancing the many obligations of work and a busy family when she was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. She learned about Ideal Protein from her Aunt who successfully lost 35 pounds following the protocol. Molly wanted to get healthy and was able to lose 150 pounds in 13 months. She is now finding a healthier more nutritious and active lifestyle for her and her family. Now her passion is to help others learn and reach their goals.
