About me

Dr. Ryan specializes in the treatment of sarcomas (rare bone and soft tissue tumors) and genitourinary cancers (kidney, bladder, prostate and testicle cancers). He strives to offer the latest treatments to his patients through clinical trials. He is inspired by his many patients who received breakthrough treatments in clinical trials before those treatments were widely available.

Dr. Ryan enjoys the Oregon outdoors, fly fishing for steelhead and cycling when he is given the chance. Most of all, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two small children.

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.
