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. Craig McDougall is an internal medicine doctor. His greatest rewards come from the relationships he builds with his patients and helping them live better lives. He places a strong emphasis on prevention and treating problems with lifestyle changes, and reserves prescribing medications and surgeries as a last resort.

He encourages his patients to eat a plant-centered diet and to be physically and mentally active to help promote good health. However, Dr. McDougall understands that change is not all or nothing; every step is important and he wants to be there to help support people along the way.

Before joining OHSU’s faculty, Dr. McDougall worked as a primary care doctor and was the physician-lead of a lifestyle medicine consult clinic at Kaiser Permanente. At ZOOM+Care, he helped develop an adult primary care practice that emphasized food and movement as medicine.

Outside of work, Dr. McDougall spends as much time as possible with his wife and two children. They enjoy being outdoors, walking their dog and working around their home and garden. He maintains his family's health with the same recommendations he gives to his patients: a healthy diet, reasonable sunshine and exercise, and clean habits.
