To be seen by a neurosurgeon at OHSU, you need a referral from your primary care provider if you are a member of an HMO (for example, Kaiser Permanente) or your health insurance company if you have another health insurance plan. We do not accept self-referrals (no referral from a doctor or insurance company).
If you have had X-rays, MRIs or CT scans, please bring copies to your appointment. Please bring them with you, unless your doctor already sent them to us.
Before you schedule your first appointment, our clinic must receive a completed Referral/Intake Form and recent relevant medical records from your primary healthcare provider, neurologist or both.
Have your doctor call our consultation line to make a referral at 800 245-6478.
Our scheduling staff will contact you when your referral is processed. This referral is different from an insurance authorization (approval). If your insurance company requires an authorization, the provider's office referring you should get the authorization and give us the information.
Follow-up appointments may be scheduled directly by calling our scheduling line at 503 494-7772. Choose option 1 when you are prompted.
