Biography

When asked what she finds most rewarding about being a physician, Lisa Paul, M.D., responds, “Making people feel better and getting to know them over many years.” She prefers a teamwork approach in her practice, involving her patients in their health care decisions. “I see my role as two-fold,” she says. “First is to emphasize health maintenance and prevention. And second, in the event of an illness, to help coordinate care so my patients don’t get lost in a sea of specialists.”

A native Oregonian, Dr. Paul earned her medical degree at Oregon Health & Science University, and completed her internship and residency at Providence Portland Medical Center. She is board certified in internal medicine.

Dr. Paul and her husband, Greg, have two daughters, Leighton and Ava. When she’s not seeing patients, Dr. Paul likes traveling, exercising and spending time with family and friends

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.

Dr. Paul has been my PCP for 9 years. She is considerate and frank, as well as considerate of my time. I am quite comfortable with being 100% honest with her - which I feel is critical.

I made the appointment because they required it in order for me to continue to get my prescription [...]. When I arrived I filled out a paper that asked why I wanted to see the doctor and I indicated to keep getting my [...] prescription and I also felt it was time to get my blood work done as it has been a couple years since my last set of labs. The assistant came into the room and asked if I was getting an annual. I said no, I just had one done by my gynecologist [...]. She then typed some and asked me to get undressed. I said why and she said to get your annual done. I told her I had already had it done [...] with my gynecologist. She said she would have to discuss that with the doctor??? Then the doctor came in and asked me where and when. I have my annual done with a gynecologist out of network because it is the clinic where I had my children [...] and who did my total hysterectomy. I felt they had all my records for many years and feel more comfortable going there. She then said I needed my mammogram. I told her I had that done [...] at Providence Hospital and the records may not be in their system yet but I had received a letter already stating it was normal. I also indicated I had my colonoscopy done [...], which she had no record of but I did not feel any of those were my fault.
