"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.

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.

The PA I saw was nice. However, I was there because I had a sinus infection. But I had to take an alchol survey; I drink - a lot. [...] I was really frustrated that he focused more on how much I drank than on why I was there - my sinus infection. I was really frustrated!!!!

Mr David Counts was very thorough and did an excellent job of discussing my blood pressure issues considering it was my first office visit. He seemed to understand the issues and was "practical" in his recommendations for future visits.
