Dr. Mary Gabriele, MD
Dr. Mary Gabriele is a family medicine practitioner. Dr. Gabriele has her own practice in Cottage Grove, Oregon, and also sees patients part-time at the McKenzie River Clinic. She is particularly interested in preventing and treating chronic disease, and restoring health. She explains that she uses "an evidence-based, patient-centered approach," and always works to be "respectful of and responsive to the individual patient's preferences, needs, and values."
Dr. Gabriele earned her medical degree from the Drexel College of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She earned her undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary Science from Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania. Before moving to Oregon in 2008, she was the chief resident in family medicine at the Bryn Mawr Family Practice.

Sharon is a graduate of Linn Benton Community College, and she received her certification as a Medical Assistant at Pioneer Pacific College. She has worked in senior disabled services, patient care, and as a volunteer at Habitat ReStore. Sharon is a great team player and quick learner, developing expertise as a Medical Assistant, cross-training in front-desk duties, and managing the Clinic's immunization programs. Sharon and her husband live in the McKenzie area. They have seven kids, sixteen grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Sharon enjoys hiking, camping, motorcycle riding, and most of all, spending time with family.
Dr. Tia Cloke, DNP, APRN, FNP-C
Dr. Tia Cloke and her family moved to the McKenzie Valley from Iowa. Tia began as a provider at McKenzie River Clinic in November, 2017. She treats the full range of patients found in a rural clinic, but she has a special interest in working with people with diabetes. Her approach, she explains, is “working with my patients to find out what is going to work for them. I also believe that educating patients and empowering them to be an active participant in their care is essential.”
Before moving to Oregon, Tia saw patients at a group practice in southeast Iowa. Tia graduated from the University of Iowa College of Nursing with high distinction and honors in 2008. She first worked as a registered nurse in the obstetrics unit of an Iowa hospital. Eventually, Tia returned to the University of Iowa and earned her doctorate degree in advanced nursing in 2013.
Tia and her outdoors-oriented family enjoy fishing, hiking, hunting, and boating.
