"I enjoy every aspect of Family Medicine with its emphasis on caring for the patient as an entire person. It is truly people-oriented medicine."
Dr. Onishi was born and raised in Japan where she received her medical degree from Tsukuba school of Medicine. While in medical school, she completed her externship in Irvine California, where she was first exposed to Family Medicine, which was not widely practiced or formally taught in Japan at the time. Finding it to be a uniquely challenging and interesting specialization, later returned to the States to complete her family medicine residency training at Union Hospital in Terre Haute, Indiana.
Prior to joining OHSU in 2011, Dr. Onishi practiced medicine in rural Indiana then settled in Columbus, Indiana, where she worked in private practice and provided primary care to many Japanese in the area. Dr. Onishi also practices Hospice Care and has been board certified in Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
Her professional interest includes the spectrum of family medicine, particularly palliative medicine and end of life care. She is actively involved in working to further the practice of family medicine in her native Japan and is excited to continue that work while at OHSU.
In her spare time, she enjoys outdoor activities with her family and loves to run with her dog.
