About me

*Always open to pediatric patients and new OB/prenatal patients*

Dr. Canary Ly is a family nurse practitioner and primary care provider (PCP) offering full-spectrum individual and family care. As a child of refugees, Dr. Ly understands the importance of cultural competency and the role of family in healthcare decision making.  She enjoyes getting to know individuals and their families, and takes a comprehensive, holistic approach to patient-centered care with their priorities in mind. She believes that her role as a PCP is to be an advocate for her patients and help guide them to making the best decisions for their own health.

Dr. Ly's doctoral project identified and helped address sexual health education for college-aged young adults. As a faculty member, her goal is to help guide the next generation of health care professionals. She is interested in connecting with clinical research to further her scope and understanding of complex conditions.

Outside of work, she enjoys having fun with rugby and soccer, getting outside for hikes or walks along the coast, crocheting/knitting for friends, cooking up new recipes, and spending time with her family, cat, and six chickens.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
