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. Mel Ruberg is a family physician who is honored to provide care to the entire family, regardless of age, race, illness, religion or income. She establishes lasting relationships with patients that allow her to not only treat illness, but to prevent illness by looking into stress, sleep, exercise and nutrition. She chose to practice family medicine in order to have the ability to treat almost anything that comes in the door. Therefore, her interests are broad: preventative medicine, behavioral and mental health, addiction medicine, prenatal care and women's health, adolescent health, geriatric medicine and palliative care. 

When specialty care is necessary, Dr. Ruberg takes the opportunity to be an ally and representative for her patients.  

When she is not scheming how to change the landscape of the healthcare system, you can find her cheering on the Bengals, looking at pictures of her niece and nephew, and enjoying the Portland weather as a refuge from Kentucky humidity.
