Biography & Education


Lynn VanDeHey-Thomas' philosophy of care as a physician assistant is to create a patient-provider team and encourage patients to take an active role in their health care. "I became a provider because I want to enhance the lives of my patients and help them achieve a healthy lifestyle," she says.

"I emphasize good communcation, not only between myself and my patients, but also with my colleagues," Lynn said. "I hope this leads to long-lasting patient relationships, while helping them improve or maintain their quality of life."

Lynn received both her Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science and her master's degree in physician assistant studies from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

Born and raised in the Portland area, Lynn loves calling the Pacific Northwest home. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, cross-stitching, and playing board games with her husband and three children.

Great during face-to-face visit as well as with follow-up emails via MyChart

the dr was in and out so fast and would not listen to any other questions I had. they treated me like I was there for meds and told me they couldn't do anything for me because of my contact. I guess this means no other concerns were discussed and I was ref out and sent on my way.

I was a bit nervous about seeing a PA as my Dr. was on vacation. Lynn was wonderful! I have never felt so at ease with a new provider. I cannot say enough nice things about her.

I always have a great experience special ly when I get my own provider Dr. [...]

Lynn always does a good job of diagnosis and either recommendations or direct care.

Excellent experience! Caring & listens thoughtful great explanations.

Lynn diagnosed the problem in my ear and immediately got the equipment and assistance to perform the necessary procedure. It worked. My ear is now working and feeling normal.

I'm very satisfied with the care provided by Dr. [...] and PA-C VanDeHey-Thomas. They are knowledgeable and friendly, and never make me feel rushed to get through the appointment

She followed through on everything.

I can always be sseen immediately the staff is always helpful and pleasant any Dr I see here is excellent at listening diagnosing and caring I sincerely love this place and this particular provider was no different

I have always been happy with Lynn Vandehey Thomas and also Dr. [...].

I feel like my care team is not understanding my medical needs. Pushing me to be on an [...] when I do not want to be and my medical condition doesn't require one.Lynn is pleasant and professional however. I just don't feel like we're on the same page.They also tried to schedule "the next available appointment" more than two months out to see my primary care provider? I don't feel like that is close to reasonable. [...]

This doctor answered all my questions,took care of all that needed to be done and was very courteous and respectful,,

Lynn is always fantastic and empathetic to what's going on with me or my son.

Long wait times on phone to make appointments, twice I needed an appointment and had to wait 4-6 weeks as he was on vacation. They should have suggested or have another doctor to see his patients. Shouldn't have to wait that long.

Only saw her once and it was good.

All good experiences very friendly and kind.
