Biography & Education

Biography
Dr. Tom Warrington emphasizes shared decision-making and patient education in his practice. He believes it’s important that his patients understand and engage in their own health and their health care decisions. “Health is built and maintained by the individual,” he says. “My job is to provide the tools and understanding for patients to be healthy.”

Dr. Warrington chose family medicine because he enjoys caring for patients of all ages and developing long-lasting relationships with them.

After earning his medical degree from Mayo Medical School in Rochester, Minn., he completed his internship and residency at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland.

Originally from Minnesota, Dr. Warrington is married and has one child.

Patient Ratings and Comments
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.

My husband passed away in late July. Dr. Warrington called my home and talked with me when he was informed of the death I so appreciated his caring concern for me and my family at that time He has wonderful personal care as well as good medical care as part of his practice.

I love the care provider, but the front office receptionists are really difficult. Usually rude, dis-interested in your time and concerns to the point that the almost seem angry and inconvenienced by any call, no matter how simple. I dread calling to make appointments for myself or my children because of interactions with reception.

Dr. Warrington is very good, he listens and then explains exactly what he's going to do. I like him a lot. I would definitely recommend him to everyone.

I was asked to enter the clinic through a side door and call when I arrived. There was no phone outside the door, so I called from my phone and was on hold for nearly 15 min before anyone answered. This made me late for my appt. Not everyone has a cell phone, so this is an accessibility concern. If the clinic has a policy of requiring patients with particular health issues to enter through a side door, they need a phone and/or a back door number so patients can get through without wasting time in the general phone queue.

The lab is my biggest concern. THEY ARE ALWAYS late: huge waiting lines, they can't find the doctor's standing orders, and I am diabetic and come in every three (3) months. This time, there were no hygiene masks to protect against the sneezers (in abundance - had to wait 10 minutes outside the waiting area for accommodation; then an emergency room patient was wheeled in on a stretcher along with two emts) what a circus! You posted signs that said I would have to wait for more than 30 minutes to get called in, and then I waited some more! WHY?

Dr. Warrington takes excellent care of me. And I am a complicated patient! [...] His willingness to work with my Home Health nurse has been so useful to me. He realizes what a pain it is for me to come in to the office. He doesn't relinquish my care over to them but he realizes the value of the resource. I always use My Chart to contact his office before calling into the office. it's a great direct line to his care. I also use My Chart to view test results directly so I can be informed before asking any pertinent questions I may have. I often get test result email around the same time as I get the call from the office.

I am continually offended by being handed a recreational drug use questionnaire that conflates use with abuse (the terms are used interchangeably). I tear it up every time I visit the office and receive one. I am attempting to provide my health provider with accurate information, and do not wish to do so under the shadow of prohibition-fueled stigma.

02/20/2017
Doctor Warrington has always been far above the curve on his level of care, compassion, willingness to go above and beyond in research when I've come in with a condition whose cause wasn't readily apparent, and overall 'presence'. If it were possible for good nature, empathy and genuine concern to cure disease he would be that cure.

my Dr is great and I would recommend anyone to him but the receptionist I would not. there has been a few occasions when calling to make an appointment or try to get a message to my Dr that have been difficult to say the least. Once I tried to get an appointment for an infection that was getting worse and had already been seen for. I was given a date that was over a month out when I said that it was a infection that was spreading and the Dr told me he wanted to see me immediately I was told that was the soonest he could see me. I then asked if there was anyone else I could see, sure that'll be 10 days. [...]
