Getting a retroactive referral was a little more difficult for the provider. Was not what they were used to.

Providence is great - I have not experienced any ill health in the past and have been pretty stressed out by what is going on with me. Providence have been very re-assuring and helpful in solving my problems and getting me back to good health.

This was the first time I've been to this provider because I changed insurance after 10 years. My main reason for the appointment was to establish a new doctor and make sure I could get my prescription refills on time - I have MS. She asked all of the necessary questions about each prescription but understood that I've been dealing with MS for over 20 years and the prescriptions are ones that I've been taking for years. Rather than question my need for them, or trying to "see if I can get by without some of them", she understood that they have been working for me and said it would be no problem getting them refilled. I had been to one other doctor since changing my insurance and he questioned my need for every prescription and said he would need to conduct tests to see if "I really needed them". He didn't care that I've been taking them for years now and they have stabilized my health as good as possible. I just wanted to continue with what I've been taking because it works for me. My visit with Heidi Dier was much better. She asked good questions, but most importantly she listened to me. When I told her I've been taking the same prescriptions for years and don't want to mess around with trying new things she understood what I was saying and what I needed. She was wonderful.

I felt rushed and a bit like I was bothering her. After discussing two of my issues and sending a prescription and a referral for phys. therapy, she abruptly got up and left the room and said her assistant would be in to finish up. I had not had all of my issues addressed. Apparently one is only allowed a certain number of health issues per visit. At no time was I asked if there was anything else that I wanted to talk about. I was dismissed. The necessity for constant typing during a visit is also very annoying, it appears that the typing takes precedence over eye contact and conversation.

I appreciated the friendly atmosphere at the office in Wilsonville. It was hard to find using Mapquest and the receptionist stayed on the phone to guide me in the last couple blocks. This was so helpful. One thing that I was hoping would be different was the time it took to see the provider. My prescriptions needed refilled and I had to wait. Also, I was not feeling well and needed to see someone. Urgent care is not a long term solution and waiting a month to see a provider or receive on going care it too long. The specialist I am now seeing will take two more months to resolve a problem and I really feel crummy!

I was not impressed with the person who performed the preliminary measurements - temperature, blood pressure, etc. - prior to speaking with the provider. I don't appreciate a lecture every time I answer a question. If I'm asked if I want a flu shot and I respond "No", I don't need to hear "Okay, I'll ask again when you're in the hospital." I have reasons for my decision, and it is completely inappropriate for him to mock me for them.

My provider is capable of writing a script and sending you out the door but when the meds don't work and she's asked to do a differentwe are not going to give you anything str onger. I did not ask for anything stronger, I asked for a different pain killer and requested an xray. I was told to go to urgent care. why? I have good insurance with my husband's employer. I won't come back. I had seriously injured my spine in the fall. go to urgent care for your pain meds and I'm not requesting an xray, you'll have to go to an urgent care. unbelievable.

My only very minor complaint is that I felt like most of the things I told the provider I had already told to the assistant. It would be nice not to have to repeat myself quite so much and just get to tell it the provider.

She seemed a bit rushed. I also wasn't clear if she had read any of my medical history - or if she had received it.

I mentioned concerns about the side effects of a prescription medication that I was on and the provider was very dismissive of my concerns and said the drugs wouldn't cause that problem even though it is listed as a side effect on the prescription paperwork. She was also very dismissive of my other concerns and I felt like she was trying to rush me out.
