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.

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.

my only complaint is that the rooms are very small and I don't like that the waiting room is combined with urgent care. I feel it is too small and probably germy. Love Dr. Hungerford. she listens carefully and gives thoughtful advice.

Always listens, provides answers or referrals to other medical personnel. Responds to email requests for information and my questions.

Often I feel as though my provider is unable to see the impact my physical and emotional difficulties have on my daily living, and how it also impacts the people around me.

She is good at giving all the test to find out why I don't feel better & they always come back that nothing is wrong with me. I feel better knowing that, but I don't feel any better!! Know what I mean?!

My doctor is excellent. The clinic staff are marginal. Slow at the check in and unfamiliar with the computer systems. Never smile. CNAs are never the same-you are always being cared for by a stranger. Phone contacts: slow and calls frequently not returned. I have given up on leaving messages as they always get "lost." Support staff very poor.

Having the scribe in the room makes me slightly uncomfortable. During this last appointment, there were 2-as one was in training. Can't say that I enjoy being almost naked in front of 3 other people crammed in a small room.

I was disappointed that I had to ask for testing considering my family history and current symptoms. I still did not get the complete work up that I felt necessary. When lab results came back, no one called me to tell me I was diabetic. I found out from the pharmacist and diabetes counselor when they called to make an appointment. I didn't even get a message in My Chart. Yes, I am educated so I could look at my labs and presume that was the case, but a personal reach out would have been appreciated. At this point I am looking for a new Dr. who will take my symptoms seriously and knows how to manage them.

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!
