I provide patient-centered, holistic, and compassionate care. I believe in the power of shared decision making between a provider, the patient, and their caregiver.”– Casey Magis-Agosta, CPNP-PC
Casey always knew he wanted to work with kids. In college, he discovered a love for studying human physiology, and then a career path that married both passions perfectly. Today he’s living his best life as a pediatric nurse practitioner.
Like most of us, Casey grew up in Oregon and fell in love with its mountains, evergreens, and famous eclectic and colorful culture. He graduated from the University of Oregon in 2015 with a major in human physiology and a minor in Spanish. After graduation, he moved to Connecticut to attend Yale University School of Nursing for his master’s degree. During his time at Yale, Casey delved into elective coursework (Principles of Advanced Oncology, US Health Justice), honed his skills as a teacher working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, and helped create and coordinate a student-run lecture series, “Nutrition That Heals.” While at school, he spent his summers working as a nurse at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a place where kids with chronic and life-threatening conditions can forget their worries and just be kids. He returned to Portland in 2019 to start his career as an independent pediatric practitioner.
As a PNP, Casey’s greatest joy comes from helping frightened or nervous children feel relaxed, secure, and accepted in the exam room. Making them laugh is an even greater win! A nod to his teaching assistant days, Casey loves sharing ideas and information during visits, so that patients and parents feel comfortable making shared medical decisions. He’s also experienced in and passionate about mental health, queer healthcare, and providing gender-affirming care for transitioning kiddos.
For a little R&R, Casey loves hiking, backpacking, and camping with his husband and dog. He says there’s never enough summer to do all the camping he wants! He’s a huge fan of live performances (music, dancing, theater, or comedy) and makes a loud, easily excitable show buddy. He also loves trying new restaurants in town, indulging his inner foodie. At home, he’s often snuggled up with his two rescue animals, a dog Milo and cat Penny who love playing together.
