Dr. Yusuf Mathai
MD, MPH, FAARM
Dr. Yusuf Mathai worked in a fee-for-practice setting before deciding to open a practice dedicated to bringing health care back into the control of patients and their doctor. As a direct primary care provider, Dr. Mathai is now able to deliver uncompromising care in a patient-focused setting that truly allows him to truly get to know his patients. He brings a caring and compassionate demeanor into every visit, making patients feel more like family.
“I want to remove barriers to care that have be created by government regulations and insurance company rules. I want to remove the restrictions the typically leave physicians in the traditional healthcare setting buried in nonsense paperwork. I want to spend my time where it counts: with my patients. In removing these interference’s, I will return Family Medicine to its root values of clinical excellence and compassion for patients. I promise to deliver unprecedented accessibility, convenience, affordability and patient-centered care. “

I have been in healthcare as a CMA for 16 years. I love the way Direct Primary Care really allows me to help Dr. Mathai do what is best for our patients. In past jobs, I was frustrated with the walls that are put up and the hard stops that make it nearly impossible to do the right thing. Working with Dr. Mathai allows me to enjoy the relationships we build with our patients. Time off is spent with my family, and my dogs camping or taking in all amazing sights and tastes of Oregon.
Hello Everyone, my name is Yamilet, I prefer to go by Yami.
Having recently graduated I’m proud to serve as the new Medical Assistant at Oregon Health DPC & Vitality!
My role as a Medical Assistant will be to work along side the doctors to ensure you have the very best care at Oregon Health DPC & Vitality.
Getting to know you the patient will be a privilege both in and out of the office!
As a mother of a 2 year old boy, he keeps me busy lol We not only enjoy outdoor activities but we also enjoy watching movies together.
I’m also a avid Timbers fan, so catch me at Providence Park during home games! :soccer:”
Can’t wait to meet you all, as we work to help you achieve your optimal health and wellness goals!
In my 30+ years of practicing medicine, I heard too often from patients that they don’t like going to the doctor. They feel judged, not listened to, rushed out the door.
They feel like drugs are thrown at them with little to no explanation. This scenario is exactly why I decided to join this practice.
Cutting out the “middle man”, AKA medical insurance, allows me to deliver a comprehensive individualized care that includes dietary,
lifestyle education and targeted nutritional supplementation.
I am a strong believer in Doctere, or “Doctor as teacher” and understand the importance of a strong educational base for patient care
as well as the need to create a supportive atmosphere to allow patients to participate in their own health care journey.
My job as a doctor is to educate and empower you to become a healthier person. Genuine empathy, nonjudgmental listening and close, direct follow up
are the essential tools I use to get you there.
I am passionate about creating healthy meals transforming traditional family recipes into gluten-free and paleo versions, and starting more books than I’ll ever finish.
I would like to invite you to join me along your healing journey.
Working together, we will create a plan specific to you and your health goals, so that you can live your life with vitality.
