Biography

When asked what she finds most rewarding about being a physician, Lisa Paul, M.D., responds, “Making people feel better and getting to know them over many years.” She prefers a teamwork approach in her practice, involving her patients in their health care decisions. “I see my role as two-fold,” she says. “First is to emphasize health maintenance and prevention. And second, in the event of an illness, to help coordinate care so my patients don’t get lost in a sea of specialists.”

A native Oregonian, Dr. Paul earned her medical degree at Oregon Health & Science University, and completed her internship and residency at Providence Portland Medical Center. She is board certified in internal medicine.

Dr. Paul and her husband, Greg, have two daughters, Leighton and Ava. When she’s not seeing patients, Dr. Paul likes traveling, exercising and spending time with family and friends

Dr. Paul has been my doctor for about 18 years. The reason they I have stayed with her for so long, is because I really feel that she listens to me, and that my health care is a team effort between she and I.

[...] Although she was not blatantly unprofessional, I cannot describe her demeanor as professional. I was treated like my presence was an imposition. [...] Her approach and diagnosis seemed to be purely a quick fix to a problem.

I received minor surgery on removal of a cyst on my [...]. It was a time consuming procedure because of the nature of the cyst and she did a wonderful job. She was often seeing if I was comfortable and if I had questions.

This provider had the list of my health concerns that I presented when I made the appointment. Rather than going down that list, she kept asking "is there anything else?". I thought we were done, then I remembered something, and she challenged me, saying "That's why I kept asking if there was something else." This is wrong - the provider should try to cover everything listed as patient concerns, and THEN ask if there is something else. [...] I was not satisfied or happy. I'll have to address my concern at another time, with another provider, as I did not get an satisfying response this time. [...] Not a good patient experience [...].

Dr Paul has been my medical care provider for many years. She is always responsive to my health needs and questions. She fully explains the type of treatment I may need in a clear and concise manner, that I fully understand when I leave her office. Her follow up to my treatment needs, other physician referrals, and prescription refill requests could not be better. She is a very caring and attentive, as well as, understanding physician. I am fortunate to have her as my medical health provider.

Reason for visit was to establish care with a new provider since old provider was leaving PMG/Gateway. Dr. Paul listened to my medical history but was typing into the computer the entire time. Took direct questioning to find the human behind the DR. Seemed too busy to really hear/care my issues.

I've been with her about 11yrs and she is an exceptional listener. She also works with the patient, rather than just telling me what to do. [...] Lisa's picture on the wall in the waiting room even describes her way of working 'with ' the patient, instead of just telling them what to do. I have worked on the job with doctors for years and have never experienced as much respect with a ny dr, like I have with Lisa. Lisa detected a brain aneurysm that could have killed me. I was previously in the hospital with many brain tests for [...] and the aneurysm was never detected. She is the best [...]

the office seems to be very disorganized and too many people involve in the process. I got a call from the Docters office that I needed to go to the hospital for a blood transfusion the next morning. When I called they had no record of an order for this procedure. This is one of several bad things that have happened.

I didn't feel like Dr. Paul was hearing my concerns she left the room and I thought she was coming back I still had questions and then I learned I was going to have to wait again to see her to finish my appointment but I couldn't because it would make me late for another appointment. I wanted blood tests to be done, I fasted for them, had the first appointment of the day and they could not make that happen for me without her and waiting another 30 minutes. I was called back 15 minutes late and I was the first appointment of the morning. I showed up 15 minutes early to ensure I had time to update my info since I don't go to the doctor's except maybe once a year. Totally disappointing.
