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.


Dr. Caruso is a family physician. He decided to pursue family medicine because of the opportunities it presents to form long-lasting, supportive relationships with a wide variety of patients. He has a background in public health and health policy and believes strongly in primary care physicians’ important role in listening to and advocating for the needs of their patients.

Dr. Caruso also has strong interests in global and rural health, owing to a variety of experiences in India, Latin America and the southern United States. Given the poverty and health disparities he witnessed before and during his medical studies, he has a particular desire to provide primary care to low-income and marginalized patients. He believes health and health care are universal human rights.

Dr. Caruso grew up in Portland and is thrilled to be back in his hometown. Outside the clinic, he enjoys biking, hiking, camping, kayaking, gardening, traveling and just about anything else that’s outdoors. He also loves to cook, bake, grill and brew all kinds of food and drink. He particularly enjoys just hanging out and sharing these creations (and good conversation) with family and friends.
