Biography

Dr. Molly Gramley is the medical director at the Providence Medical Group Ashland clinic, and the Providence South Hospice medical director. The emphasis of her practice is geriatrics and end-of-life care.

She says she enjoys taking complex medical problems and working with patients to simplify solutions.

Dr. Gramley earned her medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Her board specialties are in internal medicine and hospice care. Her internship and residency were completed at University of Washington, where she was chief resident.

When my doctor retired about a year ago, I was apprehensive about finding a new one. The doctor I picked saw me once & then disappeared with no notice to me. Then Dr. Gramley was recommended, & I am very happy & comfortable with her.

I waited for at least 40 minutes in the exam room with just the hospital gown on. I was anxious and uncomfortable. I felt forgotten. Then my provider just looked at the computer as she read my history and spoke about what she was reading. I felt like she didn't know me or really care about getting to know me as a person. I actually was prepared to discuss what is going on in my life and medical implications it may have but by the time I was actually seen for my pap I just wanted to leave. My provider is nice and the people who work in the office are as well. I just feel like a "number" when I'm being seen.

I started as a patient of Dr. Gramley's before she joined Providence, so I have known here for several yrs. She is extraordinary both in her knowledge base and her interpersonal skills. I especially like the fact that she listens, teaches, and discusses issues with me. She is an excellent Internal Medicine physician, and I am a stickler for needing an internist who can answer questions for me and for someone to convince me to do what she recommends. I take her advice seriously and am so very glad she is my IM doctor.

I don't think there is enough time allotted for preventative annual appointments. I left not having addressed some issues, and maybe more importantly I did not feel heard about concerns I did bring up, since everything was so hurried. I find Dr Gramley to be knowledgeable and conscientious.

I have been a patient of Molly Gramley M.D. for about 7 years, since my former doctor retired. I have been very satisfied with her communication skills since she never leaves me with unanswered questions. I have gone through a few medical problems which she has always addressed or sent for specialist care.

Dr. Gramley is very through and professional. Our only problem is that I am a bit" alternative" in that I don't want to take most meds., and think for myself about recommended tests and procedures. I am sure that is frustrating to her, but I don't do it to be oppositional. I research things,and network,take her recommendations seriously, and then make a decision. She is very understanding.

Dr. Gramley has the amazing ability to listen, focus, digest and energetically pursue solutions for every problem I throw at her. She also enjoys a growing reputation at Mountain Meadows as being the physician who looks behind every tree for what other physicians would miss. Twice, according to her growing legend, she has discovered broken bones which got past the XRay dept at Ashland ER. That kind of thing gets noticed, and the grapevine at Mountain Meadows thrives on it.

She seemed more concerned with MAKING me take tests or vaccines I did not need or want or couldn't do. No was not an acceptable answer for her. Any idea or suggestion to a solution was no good unless she thought of it 1st. I do NOT go for the idea that my health care provider is my boss & I have no say in the matter. [...] I have REPEATEDLY said I will NOT do a colonoscopy but the caller straight out asked when my last one was. [...] When a patient says no. Just MAYBE they mean no....ya think??

No bad experience but a slight inability to diagnose, or send me to correct specialist, for a [...] problem. It was eventually solved by trial and error of specialists. Part of the problem was the inability to get appointments with the specialist in a timely manner - 6 months for a diagnosis after several tests and specialists.
