Jonathan C. Crist, MD

Orthopedics & Sports Medicine - Sports Concussion Program


I specialize in non-operative treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and in medical conditions affecting athletes.  Although I have special interests in sports concussion management, non-operative treatment of osteoarthritis, and 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 completed my sub-specialty fellowship training in Sports Medicine at the University if Utah in 2008.  Prior to this, I had completed a Family Medicine residency at Oregon Health and Sciences University in 2007.

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 friends, hiking and traveling.

Dr. Crist was elected as a top doctor in Portland Monthly’s 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018 “Top Docs and Nurses” feature.
