About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I had a great visit with Dr Mark Thompson. He was very polite and welcoming. He listened to my issues and I really appreciated the feedback he gave me. Although I was not getting any better he helped me understand that with what I had it would go away on its own. Thanks for sympathizing and understanding the pain I was going through.

I think so highly of Dr Thompson & the North Portland clinic that even though we have moved to Oregon City, I have not changed Dr or provider location. The ability to use MyChart, & the rapid response from both Dr & team has been extremely useful.

I felt he judged my use of alternative medicine and he judged my choice to refuse certain diagnostic tests and that makes me not want to ever go back to him. he seems like a nice person, just dismissive to my choices.

I appreciate that Dr. Thompson listens carefully, and seems to be fully present and focused during appointments. He asks questions about lifestyle and context, addressing the whole person, not just a set of symptoms. I feel that he really cares about his work and his patients. He has always recommended the least invasive treatment that he believes will be effective. He also never talks down to me-- I feel very respected whenever I have appointments with him.
