Biography

Kevin Carpenter, M.D., provides thorough and compassionate health care to the whole family. In his practice he deals with the entire spectrum of health issues, with added emphasis on prevention, pediatrics and sports medicine.

After earning his medical degree at Oregon Health & Science University, Dr. Carpenter completed his internship and residency at Elgin Air Force Base in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. “During my years in practice, I have been able to gain valuable experience in taking care of families,” he says. “Being the father of four boys has also helped me gain an appreciation for the family unit.”

Outside of medicine, Dr. Carpenter focuses his time and energy on his church and family. He has been a family physician in Gresham since 1998.

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.

I am looking for immediate answers to my condition and I am not getting it. I CAN'T EAT WITHOUT GETTING SICK! I understand there is a process of elimination but it has been over a week and I still don't have any answers. I have done a bunch of lab work and very little of the results have been explained to me. I would really like to be able to eat food soon.
