Biography

Thuy-Tien Pham, M.D., says she knew from the moment she decided to be a doctor, she would go into primary care because she enjoys helping people and building long-term relationships. “I enjoy getting to know my patients,” she says. “I like being able to help them in a variety of situations, whether they are healthy, in need of preventive care or ill.”

Her more important role as a physician, Dr. Pham says, is to “act as a guide so my patients can choose what is best for their health and navigate the complexities of our health care system.”

Dr. Pham earned her medical degree from Creighton University in Nebraska. She completed her internship and residency at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry from University of Portland.

A native Oregonian, Dr. Pham volunteers overseas when she has the opportunity and has been to Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Guatemala. She speaks Vietnamese and basic Spanish as well as English. When she’s not working, she enjoys cooking and trying new foods.

Dr. Pham is very thorough. My blood pressure was very high and she was able to determine that an over the counter sleeping aid may have been causing it. I stopped taking the sleep aid and my blood pressure is back to normal.

I really like Dr. Pham very much. [...] I am glad to have her as my doctor. I came in for a referral for a Sleep Study. [...] She is an excellent listener, excellent communication skills, take good notes, and excellent bed side manner. She always is smiling and sits down when talking to you eye to eye. I really appreciate that kind of communication.

I was Dr. [...]'s patient for many years. This was my first visit with a new PCP... Things did not go well. First, I waited for more than an hour; I told the nurse that I was upset because nobody came out to tell me about the delay, but she apologized for the delay which WAS NOT MY POINT. Had to explain three times the issue and she kept on apologizing for the delay. Very disrespectful and annoying. [...] I left the office w/o talking to anybody. I will change the PCP.
