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.


Dr. Nilsen loves to be part of the community and wants to work together to build and maintain healthy families and neighborhoods.  She practices full spectrum family medicine and enjoys working with everyone- from prenatal care and pediatrics to the elderly. She loves to get to know her patients well and be someone they can depend on while helping manage chronic issues as well as any new medical concerns that come up.

When she’s not in the clinic, Dr. Nilsen explores the various neighborhoods in Portland and samples the food. She likes to garden, take walks along the river and paddle board when the sun is out.  She never misses an opportunity for travel or adventure and tries to visit her two little nephews as often as possible.
