Seeing the care her sister received during a childhood illness inspired Heather Adair, PA-C, to pursue a career in medicine. "I chose family medicine because it provides the opportunity to care for patients through all stages of life," says Heather.
In her practice, Heather believes acute health concerns are always important to address, but she enjoys focusing on preventive medicine and patient education. "I like to work with my patients to create a plan that will work best for their health," says Heather. "I'm here to listen to my patients, be their advocate and ensure they get proper care."
After completing her Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development at Warner Pacific College in Portland, Oregon, Heather received her Master of Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.
Heather was born in the San Francisco area and moved to Oregon as a teenager. After traveling for school, she knew the Pacific Northwest was home. In her free time, Heather enjoys being outdoors, traveling and spending time with family.
