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. Stiefel grew up in Coeur d’Alene, ID, and received her undergraduate degree from Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA. She attended medical school at the University of Washington, and completed her ophthalmology residency followed by an ocular pathology fellowship at OHSU Casey Eye Institute. She joined the faculty in 2018. In addition to her clinical and surgical role as a comprehensive ophthalmologist in Vancouver, WA, she enjoys analyzing ocular specimens and teaching residents in the Ocular Pathology lab.
