Biography

Dr. Susie Bobenrieth emphasizes care of the whole patient.  She believes that patients won’t do well with preventive care or management of chronic health conditions if there are barriers to their care. “As a provider,” she says, “I try to recognize and address these issues collaboratively with my patients.”

She decided to become a family physician after volunteering in various health care environments and recognizing the role that the family physician can play in prevention, support and advocacy for patients in times of both wellness and illness. “It is a joy and privilege to journey with patients through the ups and downs of life,” she says.

Dr. Bobenrieth earned her medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. She completed her internship and residency at Family Medicine of Southwest Washington in Vancouver.

I think this clinic doesn't allow for providers to spend enough time with patients, nor give providers enough time to review patient records prior to seeing said patient. I was early to my appointment ad I had to wait over an hour past my scheduled appointment time. About 45 minutes into waiting I had to seek out a healthcare professional to see what was amiss, as no one followed up with me. This lack of oversight has made me question Gateway's efficacy and car, and I am considering changing providers. Furthermore, I had a somewhat alarming test result and I was given less than specific and adequate information from the provider's assistant. The provider's assistant seemed very unknowledgeable.

I took the time to put my medications into the website prior to the visit. This info was NOT available to the doctor. Why? This was frustrating.

11/08/2016
Dr. Bobenreith is always responsive to my questions. Although I did not call her or the office, I emailed several times. My one concern is there isn't always agreement about services available e.g. I was sent a notice saying I needed a tetanus booster. Dr. B said I needed to get it at a pharmacy like Walgreens yet the day before my close friend received hers at the same clinic. Dr. B checked on this but there was no clear idea why the two were different.

This is in regards to getting through to the office. They had a meeting on Friday morning and I couldn't make an appoinment or talk to anyone until after 10 when they are supposed to open at 7:30. Very stressful for me ring to call and not knowing when they were going to be out of their very short meeting.

I felt that I was listened to and so we covered all the chronic issues I have as an elder. The doctor was friendly and relaxed, yet businesslike so my daughter (who came with me) and I felt comfortable with her. I especially liked getting the printout of "After Visit Summary" so I can refer back to points we covered and decisions we'd made about my prescriptions. This summary covered all we addressed very well, which again made me feel that I"d been heard and all my concerns addressed.

This was my first visit with Dr. Bobenritch. The first thing she said was she was sorry I had to wait so long. Then asked why I come to this clinic instead of one on the west side is Portland. I didn't feel like she really wanted me as a patient.
