About Me

I believe that the best medical outcomes are based on good communication and collaboration between patients and doctors. Taking the time to listen, engage and educate patients is fundamental to my practice.

- Meritt Peterson, PA-C

Meritt received her B.S. degree in Biology from the University of San Francisco, and recently earned her M.S. in Physician Assistant Studies from Northeastern University in Boston. As a PA, Meritt enjoys getting to know patients and building relationships with them to create positive health outcomes.

Merritt likes living in Portland because it’s a dynamic city with lots to do and see, and that it’s an urban environment that’s still close to the water and mountains. In her spare time, you can find Meritt exploring neighborhoods in Portland, trying new restaurants, playing soccer, running, traveling and spending time with her family and friends.
