Hello East Portland Pediatric Clinic community!

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our new pediatrician, Dr. Rita Vileisis, who will be joining our team in July. She will be available to serve our patients and their families every Tuesday and Wednesday.

Dr. Vileisis brings with her an impressive wealth of knowledge and experience in pediatrics with over forty years spent in the pediatric field. She began her educational journey at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois, where she earned both her undergraduate and medical degrees. Originally intending to become a surgeon, a rotation in the neonatal intensive care unit sparked a deep passion for pediatrics. This led to a fulfilling career primarily in neonatology.

Over the last decade, however, Dr. Vileisis discovered a new love – general pediatrics. The opportunity to witness the growth and development of children and their families has brought her immense joy and fulfillment. She is deeply committed to her work and is eager to continue serving children and adolescents in need at our clinic.

When she’s not caring for patients, Dr. Vileisis dedicates her time to volunteering at Physicians for Human Rights. Her creative side shines through in her love for quilting, a hobby she enjoys in her downtime. She also loves spending quality time with her rescue terrier and her two beautiful grandchildren.

We are honored to have a pediatrician as dedicated and accomplished as Dr. Vileisis joining our team. Her vast experience and deep passion for children’s health make her an invaluable addition to our clinic. We are confident that she will provide the highest level of care and support to our patients and their families.

Please join us in extending a warm welcome to Dr. Rita Vileisis. We look forward to her contributions to our clinic and our community. Together, we will continue our commitment to provide the best pediatric care in East Portland.

Welcome aboard, Dr. Vileisis!
