Dahra Perkins, MD

Darah Perkins, MD

Dahra Perkins, MD is a holistic family medicine physician. As a family medicine physician, she has specialty training in adult medicine, including women's health, pediatrics, adolescent medicine, geriatrics and behavioral health. She works in partnership with her patients, educating and assisting them in achieving vibrant health. In her approach to each patient, she draws from a wide range of resources and believes in the value of rigorous scientific inquiry, state of the art diagnostic testing as well as the wisdom of ancient healing traditions and a person's own intuition. Her approach to healing is to assist each person in addressing the obstacles to their vitality rather than just treating isolated symptoms. While this often means lifestyle changes with gradual results over time, she does recognize the value and appropriateness at times of acute treatment of symptoms. She welcomes coordinating and collaborating care with other health practitioners that a patient is working with.

Because she believes that each person's healing journey is unique to them and that the basis of her value to her patients is the relationship she creates with them, she has structured her practice to enable her to spend adequate time to listen to her patients and to get to know them.

She received her bachelor's degree in Social Sciences from the University of California at Berkeley, her medical degree from the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine in Los Angeles, and completed her residency in family medicine at Oregon Health and Science University. She has had additional training in integrative medicine, including nutrition and herbal medicine.

She is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Oregon Medical Association, the American College for the Advancement in Medicine and the American Holistic Medical Association.

Dr. Perkins was born in Santa Monica, CA. She has lived in Portland, OR with her daughter Zoe since 2005. She enjoys dancing, outdoor adventures, traveling, making and fixing things (e.g. wood working, knitting, and car repair), and spending time with family and friends.
