About me

Dr. Christina Milano is a family physician who cares for individuals of all ages, in both the clinic and hospital settings.  Dr. Milano has extensive expertise in gender-affirming hormone therapy, as well as procedural skills relating to the reproductive system and contraception, and is honored to partner with people of all backgrounds and identities to support them with the information they need to make the best choices for their own health and well-being.

A veteran servant leader at OHSU and in the Portland Medicaid system, Dr. Milano is passionate about fostering community partnerships to create meaningful change in the lives of Oregonians.  A founding member of the OHSU Transgender Health Program since 2011, and inaugural medical director of the program since 2019, Milano has effectively cultivated linkages between over a dozen clinical departments and divisions at OHSU to establish what is now considered one of the most comprehensive and formative transgender health programs in the United States.  In addition to their faculty and staff partners at OHSU, they have sustained the explicitly articulated support of the Transgender Health Program’s Community Advisory Board, and myriad community-based partners.  The OHSU Transgender Health Program serves thousands of unique patients, and under Milano’s leadership, recently launched a virtual consult clinic serving all Oregonians.  

Dr. Milano was born in San Francisco, and trained at UCSF before transitioning to the great Pacific Northwest to practice medicine at OHSU.

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.
