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.


Chris Michel is a physician assistant with a special interest in family medicine and sports medicine. He enjoys helping patients understand that good health is not created in the office, but rather in all of the small decisions they make every day throughout their lives.

Mr. Michel is committed to preventive care and wellness, and enjoys caring for patients of all ages. His favorite part of Family Medicine is his ability to build relationships with patients over many years.  Prior to joining OHSU as a physician assistant, he worked as an outpatient cardiac rehabilitation specialist.

When he is not working, Mr. Michel is an avid rock climber, hiker and cyclist. He also enjoys exploring our U.S. National Parks with his wife.
