Meet Breanne Cannon PA-C
Sleep Medicine and Snoring Treatment Specialist
I grew up on a grass seed farm a little way west of Salem with my parents and three brothers. I moved to Portland for PA school and stayed and worked up there; the last eight years have been in neurosurgery. I relocated back to Salem and had the excellent opportunity to join The Modern Nose Clinic.
I went into medicine because I've always had a huge desire to help people feel better. I am very excited to be here, where the goal is "to help people become better versions of themselves," which aligns with my initial reason for wanting to be a PA.
When I'm not at work, I enjoy gardening, baking, and spending time with my family and our new puppy.
