Kelly Washburn, ANP, GNP – Primary Care, Endocrine, and Transgender Medicine – 5736 NE Glisan St Portland Clinic (located in New Heights Physical Therapy)
Kelly Washburn obtained her credentials as both an Adult and Gerontological Nurse Practitioner in the state of Oregon after graduating from Yale University. Kelly has worked as a primary care provider and more recently as an Endocrinology Specialist and Diabetes Specialist in an endocrinology clinic. Kelly Washburn has worked with over 2,000 individuals with diabetes (type 1, type 2, and gestational), incorporating lifestyle modification education and support with state of the art medications and technologies including Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems and Insulin Pump Therapy.
Kelly also specializes in cross gender hormone therapy for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. In Washburn’s Connecticut practice, Kelly worked with hundreds of trans* individuals aged 17-70. Kelly Washburn is honored to serve the trans* community and hopes to continue working with and building trust among the greater Portland LGBTQ communities.
In Kelly’s experience, the most rewarding aspect of providing care is empowering patients. Sickness, maintenance of wellness, and the entire healthcare system can be confusing and overwhelming. Washburn hopes to work closely with motivated individuals creating focused treatment plans as a diabetes specialist, transgender hormone specialist, or primary care provider. Kelly Washburn is thrilled to join the dedicated providers at Merritt Health & Wellness.
