Dadiki Sherpa, PA-C
Dadiki Sherpa became a physician assistant because she loves taking care of people and making a difference in their lives. As a provider, Dadiki believes it’s important to stay present in the moment and give patients her undivided attention. She wants patients to feel like they matter and know that their concerns are heard. Dadiki cares for adults of all ages. She has a special interest in helping patients manage diabetes and heart disease.
Dadiki initially earned a bachelor of science in information systems from the University of Colorado at Boulder. However, she quickly learned she wanted to work in a career where she could connect with people emotionally and do more caregiving. She went on to earn a bachelor of science in health sciences from Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York. She earned a master of science in physician assistant studies from A.T. Still University in Mesa, Arizona. She is fluent in English, Hindi, and Nepali.
Away from medicine, Dadiki enjoys spending time with family and cooking foods from the ethnic Sherpa group from which she descends. While her family is known for guiding explorers up Mount Everest—and her uncle once held the world record for the most summits—she has not climbed the mountain herself. She does love to hike and gets out in the Columbia Gorge whenever she can.
