Dr. Gerald Duris was born and raised in Puyallup on his parents’ berry farm. As a kid, he worked in the fields, pulling weeds, picking berries, and driving a tractor. He also played baseball, football, and basketball. When he was a sophomore at PHS, he broke his ankle playing baseball and the family doctor, Dr. Ed McCabe, put pins in his ankle fracture. He thought that was pretty cool. From that time on, he wanted to be a family doctor.

After high school, he went to WSU and then UW for medical school. He’s half Cougar and half Husky, so his wife Debbie calls him a “Cougsky”. During the Vietnam War, he was a second Lt. in the U.S. Public Health Service Corps for 6 years in Walsenburg Colorado, then in private family practice for 9 years in Portland, Oregon.

He and his family moved back to Puyallup in 1989. He enjoys all phases of family practice (no OB) and he likes general internal medicine issues, sports medicine and minor surgical procedures.

He and his wife Debbie have five grown children and ten grandkids. He enjoys working out, including walking, biking, swimming, Cross-fit-lite and senior men’s baseball.
