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. Chris Chou specializes in caring for adults with neurologic diseases, including stroke, headache, Parkinson's disease and seizures. She became interested in neurology because of her fascination with the brain. She also has advanced training in sleep medicine. She enjoys taking care of patients with sleep apnea, narcolepsy, restless legs syndrome and other abnormal behaviors during sleep.­

Dr. Chou believes people underestimate sleep as an important part of their well-being. Neurologic and sleep disorders often co-exist and can strongly influence each other. She is passionate about education and prioritizes teaching her patients about their medical conditions.­

When she's not working, Dr. Chou enjoys catching up on her favorite TV shows, trying new restaurants, dance and traveling. She grew up in the Seattle area, and is excited to live and practice medicine in the Pacific Northwest.
