MY STORY

As a primary care physician, Dr. Adrianne is committed to working with individuals from all walks of life and from every generation. She is especially passionate about working with LGBTQ+ folx, activists, community organizers, and families - in all the forms that takes. Siya believes in health at every size and providing a culturally humble, sex-positive approach.

Health is more than an individual and their symptoms. Health is informed by environment, lived experience, generational trauma, the systems we survive.

Dr. Adrianne first witnessed the limitations of the conventional healthcare model and the power of traditional-alternative medicines growing up in the vibrant immigrant communities of the Bay Area, California. In her home, Dr. Adrianne’s first medicines were home remedies her lola/grandma created in their kitchen. In the community, siya saw the obvious connections between chronic diseases, people of color, and disproportionate access to health care and preventative health. Moved by the need to create better solutions, Dr. Adrianne is committed to whole person health.

When not in the clinic, Dr. Adrianne is a community organizer with Migrante Portland and the International Migrants Alliance - grassroots organizations that uplift the rights and welfare of migrants, refugees, and immigrants in Portland and internationally. At the end of the day, she loves snuggling with her pup Taho and baking brownies, cookies, and bread.
