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

Dr. Nicholas Nowell is a family physician. Dr. Nowell was influenced by his own family physician, who cared for him and both his parents with warmth and kindness for over two decades. He hopes to develop similarly strong relationships with his patients. Dr. Nowell's special interests are in treating underserved populations, addiction medicine, immigrant healthcare, mental health, and preventive care. He also looks forward to becoming a thoughtful family physician and teacher while working alongside the compassionate and talented folks at OHSU.

Dr. Nowell grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts before moving closer to the city for college, where he studied chemistry. For several years, Nick was a teaching assistant in organic chemistry. This is where his love of teaching began, which he hopes to continue in residency and beyond.

Outside of medicine, Dr. Nowell enjoys a book club with his college roommates, the New York Times Sunday crossword, afternoon naps, learning Spanish, tennis, hiking, and cooking (especially macaroni and cheese).
