Henry Sessions, PA-C
Physician Assistant Henry Sessions strives to help patients feel better physically and emotionally. He loves to be able to reassure patients and reduce their anxiety by clearly explaining their condition and the ways medicine can help. When an immediate diagnosis isn’t possible, Henry continues to be a partner in care by researching answers or connecting patients with specialists.
Henry enjoys working in Urgent Care because he can often help patients improve immediately or leave with a clear plan for recovery. Henry spent seven years as a neurohospitalist physician assistant and continues to have a special interest in neurologic disorders, as well as cardiac and respiratory conditions.
Henry earned a master of science in physician assistant studies from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. He also holds a bachelor of arts in French from the University of Oregon in Eugene. He worked at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver and at several Oregon practices before joining the clinic.
Prior to entering medicine, Henry was a reporter and news anchor for Oregon Public Broadcasting. He has always loved listening to people and understanding their histories. He believes that asking the right questions, digging deeper, and getting the story straight are the keys to helping people heal.
Henry is the father of four grown children. In his spare time he enjoys hiking and backpacking in the Mount Adams Wilderness area, working on an environmental restoration project in his neighborhood, and volunteering at a local winter homeless shelter for men. He finds chopping firewood to be therapeutic and counts it among his favorite leisure activities.
