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.

He specializes in caring for children with general neurological conditions, ranging from abnormal head growth, developmental delay or regression, to headaches and seizures. He has advanced training in the management of childhood brain tumors and serves as the scientific director of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program at OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital and the Knight Cancer Institute, where he guides development of new treatments for children with brain cancer.
