Biography

Dr. Ryan Nesbit is a family physician with special interest in maternity and child health, LGBTQ+ health, care for mental and behavioral health issues, substance abuse disorders, and palliative care. Dr. Nesbit is also passionate about working to create better health access for all.

Dr. Nesbit believes family medicine is about providing compassionate care for people of all  

backgrounds, genders, races, cultures and beliefs. He carefully considers the impact that families, communities and societies have on health and finds meaning in sharing stories, building connections with people and learning humility, humanity, and humor from others.

He grew up in West Linn, Oregon, and stayed in the Pacific Northwest to do his undergraduate work at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. After getting his B.A. degree from Whitman, he stayed in Walla Walla for two years to mentor high school students and to work as an AmeriCorps volunteer clinic coordinator at a free medical clinic for underserved patients.

He returned to the Portland area to enter medical school at OHSU and received his medical degree in 2019. When he's not working, Dr. Nesbit enjoys hiking, biking, baking bread, playing piano, reading, writing poetry, and playing cribbage or other board games. He's also an avid fan of the Portland Thorns, Timbers and Blazers.
