Whether you are a recent immigrant or refugee, recently moved to Portland from another state, or another part of this state, the questions you may be asking now that you are here are probably the same:
What health services are out there for me?
How do I find a new doctor here?
How do I find a doctor with a particular specialty?
How do I go about paying for the health services I need?
