Biography

Barbara Lang, M.D., finds the personal relationships she is able to establish with patients and their families the most rewarding aspect of her medical practice. “I find great joy in helping my patients achieve a healthy and satisfying lifestyle,” she says. “I chose to become a primary care provider because I like working with families throughout the continuum of care: from birth to end of life.”

Board certified in family practice, Dr. Lang earned her medical degree from Oregon Health & Science University, and completed her internship and residency at Family Medicine of Southwest Washington in Vancouver.

Dr. Lang was born in Longview, Wash. Away from her practice, she enjoys travel, running and playing soccer.

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.

I like Dr. Lang's approach. I feel she knows what she is doing and is genuinely interested in helping me but is not intrusive or condescending.

[…] She kept me waiting in wait room for over 1/2 hr past appt. time and was "flip" about it. Also, I took BP machine in for calibration and she told me to go back to where I bought it for that---tho the dr. said to bring in. Anyway this is 2nd visit that I have found her "wanting" in service dept. Last time she wrote wt. down wrong on my chart and that was a problem. I know she is new, however, she doesn't seem serious about her work.

Dr. Lang spent time really listening to my concerns, getting to know me and answering all questions asked. She was very responsive giving results to tests, and comprehensive in her exam and follow up. I was very impressed with my entire experience. And I love the MyChart app too!

Dr. Lang has always given me the best care. She referred me to another doctor, [...], who got my insurance [...] to cover the Harvoni cure for hepatitis C. She referred me to Dr. [...] for a torn rotator cuff. He operated, I did rehab at Providence Rehab and I am completely cured!Dr. Lang takes very good care of me!

Dr Lang's professionalism is such that she does not invite me as her patient to want to confide in her. She is somewhat aloof and doesn't view me as a person with real issues and concerns, but rather just as another patient.
