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 and spending time with family and friends

Dr Paul has been my primary care physician for many years. She has always been extremely professional and is not only very skilled in treating me, but, her interpersonal skills in both listening to my concerns and making timely and appropriate referrals when needed, could not be better. She is a credit to your organization and I hope she will continue to treat me as long as she practices medicine.

I came in and "Dr" Paul immediately brushed me off practically by saying she had a meeting to get to. Very stand offish and rude! I would never recommend this woman to any one, not even a person in severe need of help. All she did was send me for [...] both visits and never followed up with me! I will be switching Dr'srasap and would recommend that to anyone seeing her also!

Dr. Lisa Paul Is Very Knowledgeable. And Always Knows What To Do To Improve My Health. She May See A lot Of Patients. That May Be Why I Always Feel Like She Is In A Rush To Move On To The Next Patient. This Is Just My Opinion But Her Inter Personal Skills Needs To Improve. When I Am With Her I Feel Like She Is Forced To Interact With Me. I Realize It Is Hard To Show Interest In Every Patient. The Best Advice I Can Offer Is To Ask How The Patient Is Doing. Not Just To Ask About What Brought Me Into The Clinic.
