Biography & Education

Biography

Dr. Hitchcock believes that the key to improving and maintaining health is a doctor and a patient working together to combine the best medical evidence with that patient's health care needs and value system. “As partners, we can create a personalized health care program that can really work in an individual's life,” she says. As a member of Providence Medical Group at Providence St. Vincent, Dr. Hitchcock has the opportunity to both practice this individualized health care approach and pass it on to the medical residents.

After earning her medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Dr. Hitchcock completed her residency and a Chief Resident year at the University of Rochester's Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, N.Y. She loves Portland and enjoys the temperate weather and long gardening season here.

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.

Dr. Hitchcock responded right away to my email question on MyChart. She called me to check on me and worked with me on how to treat my flu. When I came in to see her she helped me to figure out if I could travel or not and even thought to ask if I needed a doctor's note for my employer.

I am still getting used to the difference between medicare wellness exams and regular health insurance annual physicals. I feel that Dr. Emily Hitchcock does listen and respond to any concerns that I expressed. I used to get an annual cholesterol test and would like to have that annually.
