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

These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating.

Dr Paul is nice. I saw her for a foot issue. I was surprised that she didn't comment on my recent colonoscopy. It was my first one and she had made the referral. My colonoscopy went well, no problems, I just feel it might have been nice had she said something at all. She was focused on the reason I came in and did not ask how I was in general or if I had any other problems. I had filled out a form that listed a couple of other issues but I don't think she even read the form. She is perfectly nice but I don't feel like she has the time to form a relationship.

We had a good visit. She was excited that I am on weight loss and encouraged me to keep going. My vitals were showing that I am looking good except my cholesterol. Her and I will be working on that.

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.

[...] Lisa Paul is the worst doctor I have ever encountered. She has nearly zero people skills. [...]

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.
