Biography & Education


A passion to care for underserved populations inspired Patricia Green, FNP, to pursue a career in medicine. She emphasizes the importance of communication in the promotion of health and well-being. At PMG-Glisan, Patricia will be involved in the development of home visits to patients who otherwise have limited access to the clinic. She also sees patients in the PMG-Glisan Internal Medicine clinic, as well as supporting the many refill requests and telephone calls. 

Patricia believes her most important role as a family nurse practitioner is to partner with patients and families to develop a plan of care that most meets their needs and individual style. She has been working with the elderly population for the last 10 years. "My job when meeting with families is to identify the problems, evaluate health obstacles, present care options, and help facilitate those choices," said Patricia. "This fits well with our new model of patient-centered care."

After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 1989, Patricia completed her Master of Science degree in nursing from Vanderbilt University School of Nursing in 1991. She has received her family nurse practitioner certification from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. 

Patricia recently moved to Portland from Alaska, where she lived for 40 years. In her free time, she enjoys exploring the Pacific Northwest, and spending time with her children who live in Portland and Seattle.

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.

The PA was very grumpy and rude but I just figured she was having a bad day. Ms. Green was terrific. Also, one of my labs was lost between the clinic and the lab.

When the nurse came to call me in, there was no greeting. I was sorry I did not ask about the side effects of the prescription because it was not explained to me at the time of my visit. I had great concerns when I read the warning side effects. They were quite severe and I was concerned how my body would react to them because of my various problems. I called my doctor to have her prescribe me a safer medication.

She was very, very, very good. Seemed very knowledgeable and kind.

She gave the fastest, seemingly least complete physical exam I have previously experienced.

This was a [...] Exam. It was mostly information gathering. The provider was dealing with some technical issues, perhaps new software. This distracted her from easily moving through the questions. I did not sense she was connected to me but rather to completing the information gathering.

Provider treated my condition (nose bleeds) and ordered appropriate tests (blood) but lacked empathy and was not sensitive when administering a painful procedure (cauterization with silver nitrate).

Pat Green is very good,there is only one problem with team one is that they never follow up on their patients. they are so busy I think they forget. It would even be nice if one of their team called and asked if we were ok.

I appreciate Pat Green's expertise.....and I like her!!...nice person!

the time she spent with me was to tell me that my symptoms were from being over weight, and a program that would help me to loose weight. She spent a lot of time talking about my weight and not the symptoms I was having and am still having. I was so angry that my weight is what she focused on, that she acted like I haven't heard these things in the past. My abdominal pains do NOT have to do with my weight. The next day I urinated straight blood. And felt very lost and scared that nothing was done except to tell me I'm FAT.

Patricia was great. [...]

This visit was great, happy to have been squeezed in so quickly.

Did not read chart notes or, why I was being treated. Did not call back waited 4 days before returning call.
