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.

Suzanne Kavet has a master’s degree in education from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as well as a master’s degree in nursing from Northeastern University in Boston, MA.

Suzanne Kavet has always specialized in pediatrics and worked at Boston Children’s Hospital for many years, eventually specializing in ambulatory gastroenterology. She also worked for seven years caring for children with complex medical needs, living in foster homes.
