Dana Mozer, FNP, MSN – Women’s Health Portland Functional Medicine – 6035 SE Milwaukie Ave Portland Clinic
Dana graduated from Yale University’s School of Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 1996. Since then she has provided holistic gynecological/sexual health services in Portland at All Women’s Health Services, Downtown Gynecology and Downtown Women’s Center. She also worked for 13 years at Old Town Clinic, helping mostly homeless adults with their primary health care needs.
She has been a student of western herbal medicine since 1997, and is also a certified practitioner of The Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapy®, a calming, external massage technique which helps with many pelvic, gastrointestinal, low back, and emotional conditions. This work has been an important part of her practice since 2009. More recently, she has been excited to discover Functional Medicine, a patient centered approach to healing, which focuses on rooting out the underlying cause of our health concerns by addressing lifestyle and environmental issues.
She believes that a health exam is only partly about detecting problems and treating symptoms. Her visits with patients are largely about education, self-empowerment and prevention. When treatment is necessary, she is able to provide options to allow her patients to choose the path that best suits their needs and desires. Her goal is to create a supportive and respectful practice which fosters her patients’ curiosity, knowledge and inner strength.
With her spare time, she enjoys dancing, tending her garden, riding her bicycle and watching her daughter grow. She volunteers with local environmental organizations and her favorite volunteer job is helping to manage wildlife cameras in the Mt Hood National Forest. She speaks Spanish and is dedicated to building a practice which is welcoming to all, regardless of color, language, age, gender status, sexual orientation, etc.
