About Us

At East Portland Pediatric Clinic, We Take an Old-Fashioned Approach to Providing Modern Medical Care

Old-fashioned means that when you call our office you’ll talk to an actual person, not an automated answering service. Our doctors, nurses and office staff take the time to get to know your family, make an effort to call you by name and care for your kids with the same level of compassion, integrity and dedication that Dr. Chappell exhibited when he founded our clinic in 1952. Six decades later, we remain committed to providing every patient with compassionate, evidence-based care.

Our East Portland Pediatric Clinic staff features five board-certified pediatricians and an experienced staff of nurses, medical assistants and front office personnel, all dedicated to providing your child with exceptional care. As a PCPCH-recognized medical home, we provide patients with comprehensive primary care and complex care management services, screen for developmental and mental health issues, coordinate the specialty services your child needs and act on feedback from you to improve our services.


Caring for Your Child is a Privilege We Take Incredibly Seriously

As members of the Children’s Health Alliance/Children’s Health Foundation, we collaborate with other pediatricians to improve the quality of pediatric care and advocate for children’s health in the greater Portland metro area and throughout Oregon.

Caring for your child is a privilege we take incredibly seriously.  We proudly care for multiple generations of families, and our patients often refer their extended family and friends. We want to thank every member of the East Portland Pediatric family for their trust, and promise to treat you with the same level of care we want for our own families.

Who We Are

Every member of our team brings their experience and knowledge to provide your family with the best pediatric care. We want to be your Portland pediatricians of choice! Our team consists of:

  • Board-certified pediatricians with over 75 years of combined experience.
  • Registered nurses who provide advice over the phone, monitor patient health conditions and call you with lab and imaging results.
  • Medical assistants who prepare each patient for their visit, administer screenings, expertly give vaccines and will assist you in refilling medications.
  • A care coordinator who assists families with complex medical, mental and social health needs.


Office Hours

You never know when injury or illness may happen. That’s why we’re open 7 days a week and 364 (closed Christmas) days a year. Our physicians are available to see your newborn in Portland or child every day in a comfortable and familiar environment. With your child’s complete medical history readily available, our doctors can provide personalized care and help you avoid urgent care and emergency room visits.

Our after-hours care includes weekends, holidays and late hours on weeknights. Please note that our hours fluctuate with patient load, so call as early as possible to schedule an appointment.

One of our pediatricians is always on call when the office is closed to address urgent concerns. Calling our office number after hours will transfer you to our answering service. If you have an urgent question, our service will page a doctor and they will call you back as soon as possible.
