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. Watson-Stites specializes in understanding how problems with the brain may relate to problems seen at school, home, or with peers. She conducts neuropsychological evaluations to help parents, doctors, and teachers understand how a child/adolescent processes information best and why a child/adolescent may have behavior problems. Dr. Watson-Stites can help identify neurological or psychiatric problems, match expectations to a child’s specific strengths and weaknesses, and work with other doctors and teachers to develop the best treatment and school plan for a child. She has advanced training in the cognitive and behavioral patterns associated with seizures and childhood cancer treatment.

Dr. Watson-Stites enjoys spending time with her family, including her husband and her two sons. She enjoys being outside hiking, snow shoeing, and running.
