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.

I truly appreciate Julianne Thompson. She listen to me and answer all my questions. She is friendly while remaining professional. Her Assistant, [...], is very thorough and the office staff is very friendly and courteous. I am very happy with all aspects of care that I have received at Providence.

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.

I do not feel like this provider understood (nor listened to) the information I was trying to relay to her, and was typing on the computer, not looking at me the entire length of my visit. She seemed more interested in referring me to alternate providers and did not seem to want to deal with treating the health questions at hand. I have also had to wait now (including this visit) several times for this provider to see me at least an hour past my scheduled appointment time. This visit was scheduled at 9:00, I was not put into a room until 9:45, and then not seen until 10:00, and was out back at my car at 10:14. When the doctor left the room, she was very abrupt and did not exit very kindly.

This was my first visit with Dr.Thompson. She is very thorough and easy to talk with. de. Thompson explained things to me, so I would have a good understanding of some of my health concerns. She requested much more lab work than I have EVER had from from my previous doctor. I like her much better than my previous provider, Dr. [...].
