Insurance

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.

Biography

Dr. Pierce specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of all forms of memory loss and dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, and dementia with Lewy Bodies/Parkinson’s disease dementia. She is focused on the early detection of memory changes, and uses advanced diagnostic techniques to make an accurate diagnosis. These diagnostic techniques may include detailed cognitive testing, genetic testing, cerebrospinal fluid analysis, MRI imaging, and PET imaging.

Dr. Pierce will develop a treatment plan with you, which may include close monitoring, lifestyle intervention, and medications. Patients will be informed of ongoing clinical trials and research for Alzheimer’s disease prevention and treatment in the OHSU Layton Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease Center. 

Dr. Pierce is glad to return to her home state of Oregon after many years away in California and New York.  In her spare time, she enjoys classical music, hiking, and yoga.
