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. Carter Wray was born in St. Louis, MO, and has lived in many places including Rochester, NY, central New Jersey, New Hampshire and Vermont before moving to Georgia to teach high school in Atlanta. He has spent summers teaching kayaking and rafting in Utah and Wyoming.

Dr. Wray specializes in caring for children with brain and nerve problems, especially those with medically refractory epilepsy, or seizures that do not stop despite children being on anti-epileptic medications. He has advanced training in interpreting EEGs (brain wave tracings), and working children up for possible epilepsy surgery. For children whose seizures do not stop despite being on anti-epileptics, but who are not surgical candidates, he works with our dietitian Karrie Stuhlsatz to offer the ketogenic diet, modified Atkins diet, and low glycemic index diets. Dr. Wray enjoys working with kids because they have such an amazing ability to overcome adversity.

In his spare time, Dr. Wray is an avid whitewater kayaker, biker, and ultimate frisbee player. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and son.
