*Dr. Costa was amazing. I ended up having to take my [age] baby to the ER, but *Dr. Costa was very kind and reassuring throughout the whole process. As the doc of the day she fit us in... I appreciated her & her style so much I asked if she would be our primary. Thank you *Dr. Costa for your care & attention even before we were "your patients."

Dr. Costa has been an amazing pediatrician for our children for over 6 years. Dr. Costa provides education, options, and advice at every visit. She takes the time to address each concern with great communication and reassurance. She is careful with prescribing medication but will when necessary. Our family feels a great deal of comfort having Dr. Costa as a pediatrician. Dr. Costa goes above and beyond. Thank you!

Originally from the East Coast, I arrived in the Pacific Northwest in 1997 for my pediatric residency. I immediately fell in love with the serene surroundings and fantastic medical community, ultimately deciding to set down roots here. My husband is also a Kaiser Permanente physician, and we are enjoying raising our two school-age children in the Portland metro area.

About my practice

I have worked at the Kaiser Permanente Cascade Park Medical Clinic since completing my medical training and absolutely love the families I have the privilege of working with. Parenting is a complex, challenging, and incredibly rewarding experience. I am honored to be considered a trusted resource to help families navigate the developmental stages and various concerns that arise throughout infancy and childhood into young adulthood. I view myself as a partner to the families, respecting their philosophies while providing my medical expertise to develop a treatment plan together.

How I thrive

It can be difficult to find work-life balance, but it's truly essential to maintain interests outside of work. Having two school-aged children, my husband and I spend most of our free time with our active, adventurous children, exploring the metro area as well as hiking and traveling to various National Parks. I continue to nurture my friendships, as well as my love for reading, music, good food, and exercise.
