Biography

As a family practitioner, Doug Niehus, M.D., enjoys taking care of people of all ages, from infancy to old age. “My goal is to help patients enjoy their lives by keeping them as healthy as possible,” he says. His first responsibility, therefore, is to help his patients prevent illness by educating them about how to take care of themselves. “I’m dedicated to my patients, and to giving each of them the time they deserve,” he says.

Dr. Niehus earned his undergraduate degree in chemistry at Boston University, and his medical degree at Oregon Health & Science University. He completed his internship and residency at Bowman Gray School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C. He is board certified in family practice.

An Oregon native, Dr. Niehus enjoys spending time with his wife, Jill, and their sons, Hunter and Hayden. He looks after his own health by playing volleyball, lifting weights, swimming and bicycle riding.

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.

All in all, I have had no major complaints with the care I have received from Providence providers. Dr. Niehaus is not my actual provider, but he is on the same provider team as my provider. He was very concerned for my condition and explained all options needed for my care.
