About me

Dr. Schelonka specializes in caring for newborn infants who have special needs immediately after birth and beyond. Many of the babies he cares for are born prematurely and need help breathing. Others may be born on time but have lung, heart or intestinal problems. Dr. Schelonka enjoys working with babies because so many will grow and develop 'before your very eyes', and one day be strong enough to go home in their parents' arms.

In his spare time, Dr. Schelonka enjoys spending time with his family, including his wife whose day job is to care for their four children. Between rowing, baseball, football, choir, theatre, his kids’ schedules keep him very busy. His favorite time is spent with his family on long bicycle rides, hiking, skiing and exploring all the best that Oregon outdoor life has to offer.

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.
