David,
At 34 GHz, there may be unavoidable interaction between the impedance matching circuit and the bias circuit - especially if you're trying to get a broad-band amplifier.

That said, a quarter-wave line (acting as a transformer) from the bias source to the active device may help - but pretty much all passive devices will be composites. By which I mean, there will be unavoidable capacitance to your resistors, unavoidable resistance all over the place in your transmission lines and resonators. Your best bet is just to make allowances.

Good Luck!
