The Oregon Clinic

The Oregon Clinic, one of Oregon’s largest independent specialty physician practices, is pleased to announce the addition of two of Portland’s highly respected ear, nose and throat practices.  Effective May 1st, 2006, Plaza ENT, LLC and East Portland Ear, Nose & Throat, PC, will officially join The Oregon Clinic.

Each practice is currently comprised of two physicians.   Drs. Flaming and Pederson of Plaza ENT have special interests in endoscopic sinus surgery, Thyroid/Parathyroid surgery and head and neck tumor surgery. Drs. Wobig and Mansouri of East Portland ENT specialize in endoscopic sinus surgery and thyroid tumors as well as facial plastics such as Botox and Collagen and ear surgery.

Having an ENT specialty integrated with The Oregon Clinic, will help improve the quality of care for other specialties that have conditions that affect the ear, nose and throat, including pulmonology, gastroenterology, along with radiation and medical oncology.

Michael B. Flaming, MD and Andrew D. Pedersen, MD of Plaza ENT, LLC, will continue to serve patients at 5050 NE Hoyt Street, Suite 655, Portland, OR 97213, phone number 503-239-6673.

Roger J. Wobig, MD and Roya Mansouri, MD of East Portland ENT, PC, have two locations – east office at 10819 SE Stark, Suite 300, Portland, OR 97216, phone number 503-256-0038 and their Gresham office at 24076 SE Stark, Suite 230, Gresham, OR 97030, phone number 503-465-5461.

“Our new association expands options for The Oregon Clinic’s patients and referring physicians,” says Lou Libby M.D., Chief Medical Officer and pulmonologist with The Oregon Clinic.  “We are pleased to continue our growth to meet the health needs of our patients and to provide a team approach to medicine for more complex conditions.”  Both groups look forward to expanding to 4-6 physicians each to meet the growth demands of their practices and to best serve their patients.
