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.

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.

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. [...]

Dr. Warrington helped solve a persistent problem with leg pain after running by figuring out that my legs are uneven lengths. I started using an extra insole in the shoe for the shorter leg and the problem disappeared almost immediately. I've been able to up my mileage and have felt great running after four years of this problem. I'm very grateful to Dr. Warrington for his help; I was worried I might have to stop running entirely.

I was seen in the ER for the second time in a few days and my original follow up appt was scheduled the next week but we live at the coast and the ER Dr worked with Dr Warrington to have me seen to cover the pain medicine and other issues they couldn't address in the ER. I was able to walk (slowly) across from one to the other. Dr W was able to squeeze me in and save me a few days of healing before I had to turn around and come back for follow up.
