We can offer secure video visits (Tele-Visits) through our medical records system which will enable access to medical care without compromising our patients health. To request a Tele-Visit, please contact our office at 541-383-2200.

Alternatively we will also be offering telephone visits without the video component if access to a computer or internet is a barrier for any of our patients.

In light of the COVID-19 advancements most all insurance companies are covering tele-health options for their insured patients. If you are unsure if your insurance company will cover tele-health appointments reach out to them to verify coverage or contact our office.

We will continue to monitor all developments and follow CDC procedures and protocols, plus implement recommendations from local public health professionals. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions or concerns at 541-383-2200

hernia treatment and care

Michael J. Mastrangelo, MD, FACS



Abdominal | Ventral

An abdominal hernia can cause little to no discomfort or there may be pain associated with lifting objects, a cough or strain during a bowel movement.


Groin | Inguinal

The majority of all hernias are located in the groin area, which occur when the contents of the abdomen push through a weak spot in the muscle.


Hiatal | Diaphragm

A hiatal hernia is one of the causes of gastroesophageal reflux, heartburn and chest discomfort. Untreated, these symptoms can lead to cancer.



An umbilical hernia is located near the navel and symptoms include a slight bulge in the abdomen, which may increase with pressure or crying.
