Biography

"I became a physician because I wanted to provide a service to people," said Dr. Julianne Thompson. "From my teenage years as a candy striper and working as a nursing assistant through college, I discovered that medicine best fit my interests and personality."

Dr. Thompson enjoys the challenges of medicine and understands that a visit to the doctor isn't everyone's favorite activity. "Each patient's health is unique, and my role is to partner with them to work toward good health," she says. 

After earning her medical degree from the University of Arizona, she completed her internship and residency at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in Rochester, Minn. She is board certified in family medicine and works on the internal medicine team caring for adult patients. 

Dr. Thompson spent 33 years in Arizona before moving to Oregon. She enjoys the green scenery, rain and cold weather here. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, wine tasting and spending time with her two adult children and grandson. Dr. Thompson is fluent in Spanish.

[...] she is funny but she is always late and NEVER has the slightest clue of my history, even though it's all there in the chart and I made my appt weeks in advance.

Dr. Thompson took the time to explain the procedures she was doing and answered any questions I had regarding my prescription, medical procedure, etc. My previous physician at this clinic never explained anything and acted like she was always in a hurry to get on to the next patient. Dr. Thompson spent a fair amount of time and explained everything. Made me feel comfortable with my appointment.

Previous visit with a PA was disappointing. He had me do two unnecessary tests (one very expensive) and still was unable to diagnose my problem. 15 minutes with Dr Thompson a month later is all it took to prescribe physical therapy when she read the initial X-ray.

Dr. Thompson is the BEST doctor I have ever had. She listens deeply, cares deeply and give easy to understand, concrete, helpful advice, knowledge and directions. She takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns and then takes the time to explain carefully. She never rushes through my exam and I feel confident that she knows me and my medical needs.

Interfacing with this provider is always excellent and the reason I keep returning - she is thorough, asks great questions, and I never feel rushed. My only complaint is that she is chronically running late (routinely 30-45 mins+), and requesting things such as prescription refills, documentation for other providers, etc when I am not in her office (eg through MyChart) often takes several days to be reviewed and fulfilled/answered. She just seems extremely busy. Her office staff has always been extremely helpful and polite though, with her assistant(nurse?), [...], routinely going above and beyond for me.

Honestly my only complaint is that the office is often very busy and things usually seem a bit rushed, but that comes with the territory. Dr. Thompson and her nurse whose name I am forgetting right now are both fantastic.

05/31/2016
[...] waited in the doctor's exam room until 4:20pm. Keeping in mind my appt was for 3:40pm [...]. No one checked on me during this time to say she was late or offer up an apology. Dr. Thompson didn't apologize or acknowledge she was very late and just went right into asking my health questions. It made me not want to open up as much and ask other health information as she was clearly in a rush, a nurse knocked on the door during my visit and told her that her other patient was waiting. [...]

Nicest, most caring provider I have ever had. I was so grateful to have met her (this was my first appointment) and she was very understanding that I had to bring my toddler with me to the appointment. I was very impressed with her, and am glad to have finally found a wonderful primary care doctor that I can trust.

I like my care provider. The day I visited the lady at the counter told me that my doctor was running 1/2 hour behind, but actually after I went to the examination room it was another 1/2 hour before I saw my Dr. The front desk needed more up to date information. I was not upset about it. i really wasn't in any great hurry.

I was shown into the office very promptly and all my vital signs were taken briskly and efficiently. The nurse let me know that I would have time to finish filling out my questionnaire before I saw the doctor; she just wanted to make sure everything was ready and in the system before my appointment began.

I like that Dr. Thompson spends as much time as necessary with me and explains everything very well. I'm sure she does that with all patients so the wait time is often frustrating. Her appointments should be scheduled further apart.

One appointment I had to reschedule because the doctor had 2 emergencies that took precedent over my appointment, plus she had 2 people waiting before me that hadn't been seen yet. I understood that the emergencies were out of anyone's control, but I waited in the waiting room for over an hour before anyone told me what was going on, and then was told that it would be an hour and a half more to wait to get to see the doctor. So I rescheduled, but would have liked to have been given that option before waiting an hour.
