Early in his career as a General Surgeon, Dr.Siegel developed an interest and expertise in Palliative Care, helping patients and their families with complicated medical decision making, treating challenging symptoms and offering support during illness.
He now limits his surgical practice and mainly provides care on the Inpatient Palliative Care Service. He focuses on establishing relationships with patients and their families during what can be a confusing, stressful and isolating time.
In his free time, he enjoys playing his trombone, singing, listening to music, reading, cooking and spending time outside.

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.
