Insurance

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

Lisa C. Silbert, MD, MCR, FAAN, is a Professor in the Department of Neurology at Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine, Director of the Neuroimaging Core at the Oregon Aging and Alzheimer's Disease Center, Director of the Dementia Clinic at the VA Portland Health Care System, and a Clinical Research Concentration Lead for the OHSU SOM Scholarly Projects course. She completed her neurology residency at UCLA and fellowship training in both Geriatric Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology at OHSU. Dr. Silbert's clinical practice consists primarily of patients with neurodegenerative disease affecting cognitive function, and intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring.

Dr. Silbert's research focuses on the effects of cerebral white matter ischemic change on cognitive and motor function in the elderly. Her studies include investigations of how differing rates of white matter damage affect cognition, how changes in cerebral blood flow and microstructural white matter integrity impact expansion of white matter hyperintensity lesions, and the utilization of post-mortem high field MRI for targeted histopathological characterization of small vessel cerebrovascular disease. She has received funding for this work from the Alzheimer's Association, the American Academy of Neurology Foundation, and the NIH/NIA, including a K23/Paul B. Beeson career development award in aging research and an R01.
