Biography

Dr. Jonathan Vinson entered the field of family medicine for the opportunity to build long-term relationships with families through all phases of life. “I treat patients of all ages, but I especially enjoy obstetrics because pregnancy, birth and child-rearing are such intense and transformative episodes in our lives,” he says.

In his practice, Dr. Vinson considers his most important role to be providing accurate and complete information so that his patients can make informed decisions.

After earning his medical degree from the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Dr. Vinson completed his residency in family medicine at Oregon Health & Science University.
He serves in the Oregon Air National Guard as a flight surgeon. In his spare time, Dr. Vinson enjoys competitive cycling, skiing and hiking with his wife and two children.

  • Six things your doctor needs to know For Dr. Vinson, the big picture is the one he wants – and needs – to see. “In family medicine, we try to treat the whole person and take the entire context into account,” he says. “Some things may seem irrelevant, but they may have a lot to do with the trouble at hand.” Everything that is happening outside the exam room – your lifestyle habits, the medications you’re taking, the struggles you’re facing in your workplace or at home – is part of this context. It’s not that your doctor finds the details of your personal life titillating, Dr. Vinson says. It’s that more information helps connect the dots.

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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

This was my initial visit with Dr Vinson; we had never met before. Dr. Vinson was very helpful in listening to my "medical complaints". He renewed prescriptions for me that were approaching refill dates. He requested lab work be done. He advised me to check back in six months +/-, or before if I had needs or concerns. All of these things helped reduce my stress concerning my current health. He was friendly, and made me feel comfortable talking with him.
