Radhika S. Breaden, MD, MPH, DABMS

Sleep Medicine in Portland and Astoria, OR

Dr. Breaden earned a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology, with honors, at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).  She received her MD and Master's of Public Health at the University of California, San Francisco and completed her residency in Internal Medicine at Stanford University

Her interest in Sleep Medicine began during residency and grew during the several years in which she practiced Internal Medicine.  She found that many of the chronic conditions she treated on a daily basis including hypertension, headaches, and fibromyalgia could be traced, in part, to poor sleep quality.  In 2007 she began practicing Sleep Medicine and has found the global improvements that people describe in their quality of life and health in regards to improved sleep to be remarkable.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter exploring the Pacific  Northwest activities on the Coast.  She loves reading, swimming, berry picking and going to local farmers' markets. She is also an avid children's literature collector and collects some of the older children's literature, such as Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace.
