Biography

In his practice, David Counts believes his most important role as a physician assistant is to listen to patients and treat each one uniquely. He emphasizes teamwork and invites patients to help develop personal preventive or health treatment plans.

"I enjoy seeing patients take control of their health and make positive changes in their lives," he says. "I like the variety that comes with family medicine and addressing patient needs while building a trusting relationship."

David earned his Master of Science degree in physician assistant studies from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore. He is board certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

David is a Pacific Northwest native, born in Walla Walla, Wash. Outside of work he enjoys playing boardgames, collecting pressed souvenier pennies, and spending time with his wife and young daughter.

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.

David is fairly new to me as he is on the "care team" I have been using for a couple of years. My primary care provider left Providence as of Dec 31, 2016. I will continue to use him and like him but have had to pick a doctor that I have never met for my chart as he as a PA is not allowed to be listed as my Primary Care provider. That makes it a bit difficult as I have had to pick someone not on his care team, but another doc in a different office, because [...] MD (who is the GP on my care team) is not accepting new patients.
