About me

Emily Christopher is a nationally certified Physician Assistant who specializes in caring for patients with heart valve conditions. She chose to pursue medicine after growing up watching her grandfather, a pediatric oncologist, care for his patients with compassion and dedication. She is passionate about advocating for patients to receive the highest quality of care and helping people better understand their medical conditions and treatment options. She chose heart valve medicine because of her interest in the structure and function of the heart muscle and the innovative minimally invasive treatment options in the field.

Outside of work, Emily enjoys spending time with her husband and rescue dog, Ruby. She enjoys traveling, going to concerts, trying out new baking recipes, and spending time outdoors.

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.
