Biography

Linda Hungerford, M.D., feels that active, careful listening is the key to good primary care. “Patients want to know they have been heard,” she says. “I believe a physician who knows her patients well provides the best care. Continuity is the true basis of primary care.”

Linda earned her medical degree at Oregon Health & Science University. She completed both her residency and internship at Providence Portland Medical Center. She is board certified in internal medicine.

An Oregon native, Linda speaks German and a little Nepali — the result of six months of missionary work in Nepal. She and her husband continue to support medical and mission work in developing countries. They have five children.

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 have been in a lot of pain and wanted the results of my x rays asap. The provider said she would get back to me. The nest day was her day off so she said she would call me on Wednesday. I did not hear from her, after several calls on my own I did get the results which were hard to under stand. And I talked to a couple of others who I contacted on my own. The doctor was good and helpful but did not follow thru in the end.

I oftentimes use mychart to communicate with Dr. Hungerford instead of calling, unless i have an immediate need. Dr. Hungerford has been my doctor for at least 15 years and I always appreciate her calm spirit, her care for her patients and her great listening skills when I am in the clinic with her. She gives me sound medical advice.

This doctor literally saved my life twice: once because she convinced me to get my first mammogram and it turned out I had. east cancer...and the second time she listened to me and beloved me about my sketchy health history regarding a rare life-threatening disease which she was convinced to test for and was able to begin treatment for it thereby saving my life!

DR Hungerford is wonderful. She took care of my aunt and mother for years. When it was time for me to find a new provider I called her office. She wasn't taking new patients, but when the staff told her I called she took me on, She is a dr. who cares as well as taking excellent care of her me . Honestly she is reason why I didn't switch to [...].

I've seen a lot of doctors, this was my first visit with this provider. I hate having to find a new provider because it is very difficult to find a provider that takes me seriously, gives me the information that I ask for, volunteers additional information, and doesn't dismiss my concerns. This provider was excellent and did all of these things for me.

my only complaint is that the rooms are very small and I don't like that the waiting room is combined with urgent care. I feel it is too small and probably germy. Love Dr. Hungerford. she listens carefully and gives thoughtful advice.

My doctor is excellent. The clinic staff are marginal. Slow at the check in and unfamiliar with the computer systems. Never smile. CNAs are never the same-you are always being cared for by a stranger. Phone contacts: slow and calls frequently not returned. I have given up on leaving messages as they always get "lost." Support staff very poor.
