A special note regarding insurance: ReferralsMany health insurance plans require referrals before their members obtain specialty medical services like the care provided at Retina Northwest. Our referrals staff works diligently on your behalf to obtain these when needed; however, they cannot do so if they are lacking your insurance information prior to your appointment.
Please help our staff to help you by ensuring that your complete and most current insurance information is sent over to us by your referring physician's office, when they make your appointment. If you need to provide us with this information directly, please call our scheduling department at 503-274-2121 as far in advance of your appointment as is possible.
What to expect, and how long your appointment will last
It is very likely that the doctor will need to perform diagnostic tests and obtain results before completing your visit. It is also possible that after reviewing your test results, your doctor may recommend that you receive treatment on the same day as your visit. Please allow 2 to 4 hours for your appointment.
