Biography

Dr. Courtland Childers enjoys developing relationships with patients to help individuals achieve their health care goals. With an emphasis on preventive care, he works with patients to solve diagnostic puzzles or manage chronic illness. "The world is filled with an abundance of health information, but it's challenging to know how to apply this data to individuals." Dr. Childers believes in taking the time to discuss the available evidence to help patients make informed decisions that fit their unique needs.

After graduating from the University of Oregon, Dr. Childers earned his medical degree from the Chicago Medical School. He completed an internship, residency and chief residency at Providence Portland Medical Center.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Childers is active in efforts to create a safer and more supported transition from a hospital discharge back to the home and clinic. He is a co-leader of the PMG-Northeast Facebook page, which is designed to provide health and wellness information to our community in a fun and engaging way.

Dr. Childers is married and has two children. He enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, skiing and camping.

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.
