About Me

All patients will be treated with the highest level of care that I can provide. I will be thoughtful with each complaint and concern, ensuring that the patient is understood and feels partnered with. I will be transparent about my strengths and limitations and in areas of unfamiliarity, I will partner with colleagues with more expertise for my patient’s benefit. Ultimately, I strongly desire each patient to feel genuinely cared for and achieve the longest and fullest life possible.

- Cameron Long, MD

Dr. Long enjoys pulmonary physiology and disease and how it blends with critical care. His interest in the specialty started as a third-year medical student at OHSU working at the VA. During his time in residency and in fellowship, his interest grew into research projects focused on understanding cardiopulmonary interactions on the ventilator. Another passion of Dr. Long's is teaching and helping learners grow. He believes critical care is a unique environment in that when it works well it incorporates learners into the team and the physician is a critical leader in their clinical curriculum.
 
During his fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Long worked with leaders in many areas of pulmonary disease including interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis, and lung cancer. He received excellent training in pleural disease management involving thoracentesis, chest tube placement, and pleural catheter placement. Dr. Long also has experience and training with bronchoscopy and critical care.
 
Dr. Long likes to make sure patients are getting the best evidence-based care possible. He enjoys teaching and working in the ICU. He also enjoys the procedures of the specialty, thoracentesis, bronchoscopy, intubation, and central lines. 
 
Dr. Long grew up in Portland and has always enjoyed the countryside, outdoor activities, spending time with friends, and trying new food. Outside of work, Dr. Long likes spending time with his family, reading, guitar, and exercising.
