Alex Nydahl is a PA helping to support and care for patients in the hospital setting. He works to meet patients where they are in their understanding of their disease, prioritizing their autonomy and working toward the goals they set.
He gained valuable clinical experience volunteering at Outside In and working as a medical assistant at Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette before joining the PA program at OHSU. At OHSU, he worked for seven years as a hospitalist PA, spending part of that time with the IMPACT Addiction Medicine Consult Service. He is grateful for the opportunity to shift his focus and join the Palliative group full time.
Outside of work, he enjoys running, biking, cooking and travel.

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.
