Brianna Hanson, 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.
