Biography

As a physician's assistant, Andrew Bodmer's philosophy of care is summed up in a quote from Benjamin Franklin - "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Andrew emphasizes prevention, good nutrition and exercise with his patients to help prevent chronic conditions.

"I was inspired to enter the medical field because I am fascinated with how the body works," Andrew says. "I chose family medicine because I enjoy developing lasting relationships with my patients." He likes working with patients at all stages of life.

After earning his Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, he received his Master of Science degree in Advanced Physician Assistant Studies from A.T. Still University in Mesa, Ariz. Andrew is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

Andrew loves the Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. Away from the office, Andrew enjoys running, biking, hiking, and spending time with his wife and two children.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Andrew Bodmer has worked with me twice during the time I have had Dr. [...] as my PCP. Each time he has given me really good advice and listened very carefully to what I had to say and I have tried to listen as carefully to him as to what he had to say. I think Dr. [...] is very fortunate to have Andrew Bodmer on her staff.

Andrew was efficient in gathering information, and compassionately teased out detailed information regarding my [...], which some past providers have glossed over. He also provided updated thoughts from the medical community regarding regular tests such as mammograms, colonoscopies and other monitoring assessments. I appreciated his ability to educate me on medical topics, and to communicate with me at a level that demonstrated respect while adjusting information to my level of understanding.

Andrew Bodmer provided great service and care. My reasoning for not rating on the highest end is because my results were reported utilizing MyChart. although I enjoy the efficiencies gained with this method, a phone is my preferred method of communication. Also, the process of obtaining my prescription could be improved.

I really enjoy Andrew. He is very easy to talk to, doesnt make me feel awkward even if I am talking about lady problems, and he understands. He is very understanding and sensitive to my issues. He even confided in a different provider when he needed to make sure he got all the information and made the right choice.

Drew is the absolute best. I have had several PCPs over the years in the Portland area and feel I connect the most with him- he is so line with my beliefs for preventative care, healthy diet, exercise and not "pushing pills". He does an excellent job with patient education and never once has made me feel like he does not have enough time to work with me. I have been so impressed with him that I had my husband switch over to him as well. Drew is amazing!
