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. Yue joined the Department of Emergency Medicine at OHSU as part-time faculty in July of 2014.

Dr. Yue specializes caring for children in the Pediatric Emergency Department. She is an advocate for children and their families during times of crises, whether it is a fever in the middle of the night, a playground injury or a bad tummy ache.
Dr. Yue's research interests involve minimizing radiation exposure in the evaluation of children in the Emergency Department. Specifically, she investigated the use of Quick-Brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging for the detection of shunt malfunction in children with VP shunts.

When she is not working in the Pediatric Emergency Department or teaching medical students and residents, Dr. Yue enjoys spending time exploring the Pacific Northwest.
