Dr. Kerry practices the full scope of pediatric primary care in the office. This includes pediatric well child exams and acute care visits. She offers and supports vaccine schedules individualized to the child and family.
Dr. Kerry provides home visits at 2-5 days and 2 weeks of life. As a new mom herself, she knows it can be difficult to leave the house early in your childʼs life. Additionally, by doing home visits you decrease your newbornʼs exposure to illness when they are still building their immune system.

Infant massage is a gentle therapeutic touch which has been shown to be beneficial by increasing infant development and weight gain, decreasing maternal postpartum depression and supporting caregiver/infant bonding. Dr. Kerry is trained in teaching infant massage. She is not teaching classes at this time, but is happy to share these techniques with you at your baby’s appointments. Please don’t hesitate to ask for such information at your next appointment.
Dr. Kerry provides craniosacral therapy to children and adults. This gentle bodywork technique may be incorporated into regular problem-based visits or scheduled as an individual visit all its own. Dr. Kerry’s goal with these treatments is to improve mobility and function throughout the body as all body parts should be able to move independently of each other.
Dr. Kerry refers to a wide array of both traditional medical specialists and alternative providers. She will help you coordinate the care you may receive from other providers or specialists and collaborate with them to provide you the best healthcare.
We accept several insurance plans as well as non-insurance options.
Dr. Kerry is currently a participating provider with the following insurances:
- Blue Cross/BlueShield
- Providence (Open or Choice) – but NOT “Medical Home”
- Pacific Source
- United Health Care
She will NOT be able to see CareOregon or HealthNet patients at this time. If you have CareOregon please contact your case manager about switching to FamilyCare or Open Card so she can see you.
She does see worker’s comp and auto insurance for all established patients. She will see some new worker’s comp/auto insurance patients on a case-by-case basis.
If you are a member of one of these insurance plans, please bring your member card to all appointments and notify us of any changes to your insurance status. We will submit bills to your insurance for you. You will need to pay any co-pays at the time of your visit.
Payment may be made by cash, check or credit/debit card. We prefer cash or check. You will be responsible for any balances your insurance deems are your responsibility (such as a deductible or co-insurance) and for full payment of non-covered services. Each insurance plan differs in what services it covers. For example, not all insurances cover physical exams or certain vaccinations. It is your responsibility to understand your insurance and what is covered.
If you have insurance but your plan is not listed above, we will prepare a bill for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. You will need to pay the office charges in full on the day of service.
If you are without insurance you have a few options:
- Receive a 30% discount by paying in full on the day of your appointment.
- Connect to Dr. Kerry through the Patient/Physician Cooperative and pay a monthly fee to get five appointments per year. You can see details at: http://www.ppcpdxcoop.org/
- Dr. Kerry is also open to barter in some circumstances. Please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss this.
Please call if you have specific questions about my rates.
My billing service will notify you if you have any outstanding charges. If you are suffering financial hardship, please contact them so we can negotiate a payment plan with waived late fees.
A fee of $25 will be imposed for a bounced check.
Dr. Kerry does recommend and sell some supplements. These are sold to you at cost. She provides these at her office since it is difficult to find well-regulated and reliable supplements at local stores.
