Biography & Education

Biography

In her medical practice, Megan Chaffin sees herself as a patient’s “personal health consultant.” She enjoys working with people from all walks of life. Family practice provides the variety and challenge that she enjoys.  

After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Linfield College in Portland, Megan worked as a specialized nurse for 15 years, certified in oncology and gastroenterology. As a nurse, she saw how important it was for patients to have a medical “home base” with a primary care provider. She returned for her Master of Science degree at Oregon Health & Science University, with postgraduate education in geriatrics. Her master’s research was in fibromyalgia and IBS. She is board certified in family practice.

In her free time Megan enjoys outdoor activities with her family, especially kayaking, gardening and cross country skiing.

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.

[...] Normally Megan is very prompt and very involved. This time I think maybe her mind was still on the previous visit or she was worried about catching up. [...]

The check in system can be a bit of a problem. I got there 5 minutes before my time and it was almost 20 minutes before I got checked in. it was my weekly appt. [...] so by the time I got in we were half way done with my appointment. I didn't have forms to fill so mine was a quick check in and it's hard to be there 20 minutes before a regular appointment since I work as well. Last week was also a check in problem because the computer was down.

Megan listens, is straight forward and patient-focused, not opposed to alternative care, does not "push pills", and makes me feel like I'm the one in control of my healthcare and she's there to support and educate me in making informed choices.

everyone was extremely curteous and professional. This was the first time I have had a provider listen to everything I had to say, and realize these problems are justified, even for my age.
