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. Samantha George went into medicine to help people feel their best. She wants to help patients work on their health needs so they can spend more time focusing on other parts of life that are important to them. Dr. George chose family medicine because she enjoys building relationships with patients and their families over time. She has specific interests in reproductive health, mental health and palliative care, but looks forward to learning everything about primary care so she can serve all of her patients' needs. She believes good primary care can help people prevent serious disease and live long, healthy lives. 

She is passionate about giving patients the space to feel heard and seen. She loves connecting with people and sharing the stories that make up each person’s life. Dr. George takes great care to learn about her patient’s personal goals and what is important to them. She works to determine how to best serve her patients and she finds great satisfaction in being a part of their progress and little victories.

Being new to the Pacific Northwest, she really appreciates recommendations for local hikes and tasty food spots. She was certified for top-rope and lead-climbing at her old rock climbing gym in New York, and is hoping to re-certify and do more outdoor climbing while in Oregon. On rainy days, you can find her baking (probably cinnamon rolls or brownies), attempting to finish a half-started painting or puzzle, and reconnecting with friends and family in various time zones.
