Sharlene Matthieu, MD FAAP

Sharlene Matthieu, MD FAAP, has been around the office in one capacity or another for more than thirty years. She first joined East Portland Pediatric Clinic as a patient, and later as an employee. Her first job in the office was receptionist, and she went on to become a medical assistant before completing her schooling. She attended medical school at Oregon Health & Science University, graduating in 2002. She then moved to Ohio to complete her pediatric residency at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. In 2005 she returned to her Northwest roots and, not surprisingly, to East Portland Pediatrics.

Dr. Matthieu's husband, Eric, is a stay-at-home dad who helps keep her sane, takes care of their three children, including one with multiple disabilities and curates some amazing live-planted aquariums. Together, they like to spend their free time playing with their kids, volunteering at school and church, reading, hiking, cooking and exploring new foods. While Dr. Matthieu enjoys her busy schedule and even busier kids, she does long for the days when she could actually finish a knitting project.
