Biography

Clea Lopez, M.D., was inspired to become a physician through her experience as a Spanish interpreter, researcher and teacher. "I chose family medicine so I could empower my patients to take an active role in their medical care and support a healthy lifestyle," she says. 

In her practice, Dr. Lopez emphasizes caring for her patients as a whole and not just an illness or disease. "Listening to my patients is of utmost importance," she says. "I am their partner in their journey toward inproved health and wellness."

After earning her medical degree from Harvard Medical School in Boston, she completed her family medicine internship and residency at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. Dr. Lopez is board certified in family medicine. 

In her free time, Dr. Lopez enjoys cooking, reading, playing the violin and ukulele, and spending time with her husband, daughter and family dog. She is fluent in Spanish.

Terrible. Did not listen to a word I said, all she did was patronize and lecture.

Dr Lopez is a good care provider and I like her. She is an allopathic physician so we differ on a number of points. I prefer to avoid as many of the commonly prescribed chemicals as I can and she valiantly tries to get me with the program. She makes sure I have the necessary tests to give me the information I need to do as much tinkering with my diet and exercise as I can/will.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Lopez but she seemed very nice. Her interpretation of my health records from my previous provider was very much in line with my previous provider which was a relief.

I LOVE being able to email Dr. Lopez and others I have seen at this clinic. Much better than phone calls. She replies promptly and pays close attention to my questions or concerns. It helps my visits to be more productive.

she remembered, when my pulse was detected in my left wrist, that it was an improvement since normally she cannot get a pulse there. She listened to my concerns regarding a specialist I had recently seen and revamped her course of action due to these concerns.

My only concern is that she doesn't seem to quite understand my weight loss concerns. Overall, I eat pretty healthy and normal amounts and I get regular exercise. But the assumption seems to be just that I eat too much. It is a little offensive. And not very helpful.

She listened to my concerns about meds that were recommended for me and researched the best options, then helped me ease into the best dose to minimize side effects. She provided an explanation for my insurance company when the exact dose required for one medication was not offered by the manufacturer. She listens patiently to all my concerns, and clearly has a plan and appropriate resources in mind for improving my health. She makes me feel she genuinely cares about my health and that I can trust her - and if she isn't sure about something, she will say so and then get the best possible answers. She is quite willing to collaborate with others as part of my overall health care.

I actually felt as though my health care provider cared about myself and my son. It was as though she cared to get to know us because of this being our first visit to her. :)

She is very thorough, knowledgeable, courteous and friendly, and though she seems very busy, she never seems rushed.
