About me

Crystal Turner, physician assistant (P.A.-C.), treats patients with a variety of breast disorders. She previously worked with breast cancer survivors and has focused her clinical practice and passion on the prevention and early detection of breast cancer. As a breast health specialist, she specializes in treating a number of benign breast conditions, such as breast lump, infection and nipple discharge. Her clinical interests also include management of patients with elevated risk for breast cancer. She partners with her patients to perform a breast cancer risk assessment and devise a monitoring plan. She collaborates with the breast imaging team, breast surgeons and genetic counselors to provide comprehensive breast health care. She enjoys the long-term relationships she develops with her patients and strives to empower patients in their breast health.

In her spare time, Crystal enjoys spending time with her husband working on home projects and gardening. In the summer months she spends her time in the outdoors — camping at the Oregon coast and boating on the Columbia River. Her newest hobby is learning to play tennis.

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.
