About me

Alexandra Block is a licensed clinical social worker providing palliative care coordination, advanced care planning and psychosocial support for mental health and coping with serious illness. Her approach is centered around the individual needs of patients and their families — they are the experts in their lives and circumstances and should play an important part in their health care decisions and goals.

In her free time, she can be found wrangling her two young children and yellow Lab on the weekends as they explore new parks, trails and restaurants.

Ms. Block sees patients at the OHSU Palliative Care Clinic.

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.
