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. Nabavizadeh specializes in caring for people with lymphoma and gastrointestinal cancers, but also has experience treating a wide variety of cancers with radiation therapy. Dr. Nabavizadeh enjoys interacting with families affected by cancer and takes pride in clearly explaining the cancer treatment process in clear and understandable terms.

He was born and raised in Norman, Oklahoma, where he continued his undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Oklahoma. While in medical school, Dr. Nabavizadeh studied cancer imaging through a one-year Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Clinical Research Fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
