Dr. Amanda L Risser has the following 3 specialties

  • Public Health
  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Preventive Medicine

    A preventive medicine/wellness specialist is a physician who, through additional training, has become an expert in methods for maintaining good health and preventing disease. These specialists are the doctors people see when they are generally well or without a specific ailment and want to either learn how to maintain their current health or acquire better health.
    These doctors will advise patients on specific diets, exercise regimens, and lifestyle habits that are suited to their particular needs. Preventive medicine/wellness specialists take into account a patient's nutrition deficiencies, physical and cardiovascular capabilities, and habits in order to advise specific vitamins and supplements to take, how much physical activity to undertake, and which habits should be broken and replaced with more positive behavior.

I have had Dr. Amanda Risser as a doctor since she did her residency at the Richmond clinic, I was her last patient before she became a full fledge doctor. It was 2005 and I was pregnant with my daughter, she literally saved my life. I was bleeding really bad, and she contracted my uterus for 35min. it was scary and there were about 15 doctors in my room. If it was not for her I would not be here today, enjoying my daughter growing up. I moved and she graduated and did other things for awhile, and when I moved back to town last year, I called to see if she was taking patients, she wasn't,but thank god she took me back. I have never felt so comfortable talking with a doctor like her, it's easy to be honest, and have no judgments, she is hands down the best doctor ever. Well this is how I feel, and I am sure there are a lot of others who do too.

Just mean and doesn't know what she is doing!

I was mis-diagnosed by this DR a few times. She was also quite rude and very late a few times, does not reply to calls or emails. She gets upset when you don't respond to treatments that she mis-diagnosed you for and seems to blame the patient. Does not give good referrals. Only works with OHSU DR's.
