Radhika S. Breaden, MD, DABMS,  MD, DABMS /  Sleep Medicine

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.

Radhika S. Breaden, MD, DABMS,  MD, DABMS /  Sleep Medicine

My interest in sleep medicine began with my first patient, myself. I developed insomnia during college which worsened during medical school.

After residency, I started practicing general internal medicine in an under-served community. My interest in sleep, soon led me back to complete a sleep medicine fellowship. I have been practicing sleep medicine in Oregon since 2009. During my sleep medicine fellowship, I started seeing pediatric patients and saw the importance of addressing sleep issues earlier in life

I earned my Bachelors of Science from Cornell University and my Doctor of Medicine from Wake Forest University School of Medicine. I am licensed by the Oregon Medical Board and Board Certified in Sleep Medicine and Internal Medicine.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my children and husband, reading Jane Austen and playing tennis.

Brianna Hanson, PA-C

Maraih Franclemont, PA-C

My passion for medicine has always been in patient education and disease prevention. I have found that sleep medicine provides the perfect avenue for both extensive education about sleep health and opportunity for prevention of serious cardiovascular complications.

The treatment of sleep disorders is a dynamic process and one that requires excellent communication and trust between patient and care provider. I look at treating sleep disorders, particularly obstructive sleep apnea, as a journey that I am accompanying my patients on. My job is to provide them not only with medical advice but also with guidance and encouragement. I am committed to seeing my patients succeed in improving not just their sleep but their overall health and well-being.

I earned my Masters of Physician Assistant, Masters of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of California. I also earned my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Bachelor of Science of Arts in Chemistry from California State University. I am licensed by the Oregon Medical Board and Board Certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.
