Biography

Linda Hungerford, M.D., feels that active, careful listening is the key to good primary care. “Patients want to know they have been heard,” she says. “I believe a physician who knows her patients well provides the best care. Continuity is the true basis of primary care.”

Linda earned her medical degree at Oregon Health & Science University. She completed both her residency and internship at Providence Portland Medical Center. She is board certified in internal medicine.

An Oregon native, Linda speaks German and a little Nepali — the result of six months of missionary work in Nepal. She and her husband continue to support medical and mission work in developing countries. They have five children.

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 Hungerford has been my doctor for many years, she and I are partners in managing my health issues. She is responsive to my concerns and asks about what my other care providers report (ie; chiropractor, herbalist). We carefully review my meds and dosages, and how my body is responding.

Dr. Hungerford is a lovely person and doctor. She [...] cared about me and recognized my illnesses. [...] I am so pleased to have met her, and my own complaint is that I didn't meet her sooner. It was luck to get her as far as I'm concerned. What I like most about Dr. H is that she doesn't pretend to know everything, but she'll work with me when I have requests or want to discuss my [...] illness/other medical issues. That is something which is rare in today's world. Thank you Dr. Hungerford. Oh and her staff is awesome!

She is the best doctor out there. If all doctors cared and provided like Dr.Hungerford then the medical world would run a lot more efficient and patients would all get the help and advice they need. [...] Finding an amazing PCP is extremely hard to find and Dr.Hungerford is the best and hopefully never retires!

My last visit was for a specific condition which has since cleared up in response to medication proscribed by my doctor. I was able to schedule an appointment that was timely. I was able to describe at some length the nature of the condition, and she was very attentive to my description. I have always had confidence in her judgment.

I take a written list of questions/concerns that I want to discuss with Dr. Hungerford. We go over them one at a time and I am usually satisfied with her explanations and answers. At my last appt. I came away feeling that conditions that were worrying me were explained and therefore, I felt a feeling of relief.

I do not like the use of the medical scribe. I resent the lack of privacy. Medical appointments should be one-on-one unless another pair of hands are required.
