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. Nagel has been involved in healthcare since 1986, starting as a Navy Corpsman. She obtained her MSN degree in 2010, and a doctorate in health sciences in 2015. Her doctoral research studied factors influencing RN ability to take care of patients admitted with Ebola.

She loves endurance cycling and hiking. Although, she and her wife love almost anything that involves being outside. They moved to Portland recently with their two dogs, and have begun exploring this beautiful part of the country.
