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.
