Hi Lori, I live in Portland, OR and I know there is an Infectious Disease doctor in Vancouver who treats those with cirrhosis but I'm sorry I can't remember her name.

Also, there is always OHSU or the Oregon Clinic in Portland. I am presently on treatment through the Oregon Clinic. Going north to Seattle is really not that far. I hope that helps some. Take care.
