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. Mist specializes on treating complex cases with a focus on chronic pain and the numerous related symptoms. He completed post-graduate training on pediatrics in the US and China.

In his free time, Scott enjoys spending time with his family. He keeps honey bees, raises chickens and tries to keep up with his two boys. When time allows, he likes to volunteer with the local HAM radio group and meditates.
