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.

Patient Ratings and Comments
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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

Excellent care as always with the "Green Team".

06/07/2017
The provider failed to send the prescription to the pharmacy at the visit, did not tell me to wait for the after visit summary after the visit or that someone would be back in to give it to me. The medical assistant made little to no eye contact and did not ask allergies or other history that may have changed. Nor did the provider. I had to look at mychart to confirm that the reason the pharmacy did not have the prescription was b/c the provider did not send it in. I guess I expect a little more [...].

Drew Bodmer has always shown respect and care. he listens to his patients and shows invested interest in his patients health and well being. He has a great sense of humor which helps keep things light even if a patients situation is serious, it's good to be able to have that kind of rapor and comfort with providers....he's always been spot on with diagnosis and when I've needed a specialist, his referrals have been with the best. I'm very grateful for his care as well as the other doctors and staff at this facility. I know I'm in good hands.

Dr. Bodmer is not my normal provider but I found him to be very helpful, caring and understanding. He quickly assessed my illness, gave me two options for care, talked me through both and helped me decide what was best for me. I have also emailed him since the visit and he is very quick to respond. If I can't get in to see my normal provider in the future, I would gladly see him again.

I was extremely pleased with the care, and advice I received from this physician . I had been very ill and required a follow up visit. He explained very clearly the nature if my illness, and gave me some preventative strategies for minimizing the chance of recurrence. I left feeling very informed and confident that mg medical team would be responsive to any future related issues.

this was a new patient appointment. trouble with my knees. Andrew was great but feel he has tried to start a course of therapy without having all the facts. I have had three previous knee surgeries and he took X-rays and wants to treat. I believe that an MRI is in order to determine the extent of my knee pain and instability.

He is SUPER!! I feel very lucky to have him.

I cannot say enough about Andrew Bodmer, intelligent, grounded, listens, respectful, and does what's needed and knows the human body is very capable of repairing a good amount of what's wrong by itself. Andrew is totally tremendous and I feel blessed to have him at a time in my life when my body is feeling the affects of extremely hard labor and the world of manufacturing. [...] and I would always recommend him in complete confidence.

Drew has been a wonderful doctor and resource to me! I have seen him for several years now and he is always concerned about my needs at hand. I highly recommend him to as many people as possilbe and I will continue to do so in the future.

02/16/2017
when I was in I explained to Andrew what happened when I tried th RX he wanted me to take instead of giving me what was working for me it was like he didn't believe me because he hadn't heard of the side effects that I had. I felt he wasn't listening and talking down to me as well as my husband. so he treated my husband like he didn't know anything either. some day Andrew will be my age and I hope he will experience the way he treats older patients. I will not return. I've never met the Dr!!!!
100

02/12/2017
I always feel like I am heard. I tend to have a lot of questions and Dr. Bodmer always seems happy to answer them and very knowledgeable. He does a good job explaining things also. I always feel like I know what's going on and what I need to do after a visit.

knowledgeable provider who explains things to me.

01/05/2017
I am a RN [...] and this provider did not show the values and mission of the company. He did not even take the time to sit down with us and speak at eye level. He did not get to know us, and his manner of speaking was questioning my information and not at all addressing my concerns. He speaks with an enflated ego, is not relatable, does not take the time to respectably get to know the patient, and I do not trust the care of my child with him. I have met great providers at Providence, but sadly this provider was not one of them.
100

01/05/2017
Andrew is great and I will continue to use him as a provider.

12/28/2016
I had a plugged ear.... I know it is not earth shattering to medical providers... but, I had it for 3 weeks and I could not clear it with drops, etc. I had the feeling I was taking time off their schedule to open my ear.... not the best use of their time... But, boy it made my life so much better.

12/22/2016
As always Andrew was amazing fast, to the point of blunt about my health as I asked him to be.

Drew is awesome! He is never in a hurry, he listens, cares what I have to say, welcomes lot of questions and he is great on follow up.

11/23/2016
I had appointment with this provider (A PA) because my main doctor was not available. This provider is fine and can cover what I needed, also time was short and could not cover other health problems.

11/16/2016
Dr. Bodmer is always kind and listens to any thing I want to discuss.
90

11/14/2016
I communicate on "My Chart""; have since we began with Providence. I find that it is not used the way it is "deemed" for patient communication. My mom is 93; I make appts, I communicate problems on "My Chart", I ask that I be called or "my Chart" used to chat. That has not happened regularly. "My Chart" is a valuable aid for patients and their advocates, especially when advocate is not living near the patient. I would appreciate if, "My Chart" would be utilized better. Lab results posted, as received, and info conveyed in message section. Thanks. [...]

I am new to this provider but I have had a great experience so far. it is annoying that I am asked the same questions within a week of one another.
100

10/18/2016
I was very discouraged with the slow progress I was making after recent trip to hospital. Dr Andrew was very sensitive to my feelings and spent time listening to me and encouraging me. He also gave me some referrals to see a specialist and had me meet [...] their behaviorist for my depression.

10/17/2016
This was a follow up to an ER visit while out of state. I wish the medical people there had been as attentive as Andrew Bodmer. I did not felt listened to in the ER and wish it had been different.
100

10/03/2016
Andrew Bodmer went above and beyond normally expected treatment by personally taking responsibility for and overcoming my negative experience with the receptionist at wound care. He came in on a vacation day to examine & redress my wound. This man needs to be promoted!

09/07/2016
Andrew Bodmer is certainly one of the most attentive and considerate health care providers that I've known.

Dr Bodmer was thorough and was patient to explain to me whats going on. Good bedside manner he even spoke to my mom about my chest x ray result.
