About Me

As a physician, I hope to provide the highest quality of care and compassion to my patients.

- Rahul Singh, MD

Dr. Singh chose to focus on the Neurosurgery specialty after attending a course on spinal deformity during his residency. It was during that course that he learned about the holistic nature of treating patients with spinal disease: although two patients may have similar radiographic findings, their symptoms, family dynamics, and professional goals may necessitate very different treatment goals.
As a physician, Dr. Singh enjoys spending time with his patients in clinic, discussing their disability, and educating them so they can make an informed decision about their healthcare.
Dr. Singh loves living in Portland because it has all the amenities of a large city while also having access to the outdoors. Outside of work, he enjoys running, reading fiction, hanging out with his dog, and following the NBA.
