Jonathan C. Crist, MD

Orthopedics & Sports Medicine - Sports Concussion Program


I completed my Family Medicine residency at Oregon Health and Sciences University in 2007 after graduating from the University of Nevada School of Medicine in 2004.

I specialize in non-operative treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and medical conditions particular to athletes.  Although I have special interests in sports concussion management, non-operative treatment of osteoarthritis, and athletic pubalgia (sports hernia), I also treat musculoskeletal disorders in both athletes and non-athletes of all ages. As a Sports Medicine physician, I am not solely concerned with helping elite athletes achieve their maximum potential; I strive to help all active individuals reach their personal best, regardless of age, activity or skill level.  I am privileged to serve as a Team Physician for the University of Portland Pilots. I am also a member of the Oregon School Activities Association Medical Aspects of Sports Committee.

I truly enjoy the practice of Sports Medicine and appreciate the opportunity to work with my patients on their personal goals. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with loved ones, traveling, and playing guitar.

Dr. Crist was elected as a top doctor in Portland Monthly’s 2014, 2016 and 2017 “Top Docs and Nurses” feature.

We recently received notice that the Solar Eclipse Glasses that our Ophthalmology department has been distributing to (eye) patients 7/25/17 - 8/11/17 have been recalled due to ISO certification uncertainty.  Even though the glasses indicate ISO 12312-2 certified, we have not received confirmation from the supplier that our order was sourced from a recommended manufacturer.  We are strongly advising that you discard and do not use the solar glasses if you picked them up from our Ophthalmology departments located at our Beaverton, Downtown and South offices and use glasses that have been supplied from a reputable vendor to ensure the utmost viewing safety.  (Note:  the Solar Eclipse glasses distributed through our pediatric department are confirmed to be ISO certified).
