Northwest’s primary goal: Connect with patients
Uninsured and in need of a checkup and prescription refill, member Jody Hymes of Oak Grove says she shopped around before deciding to visit Northwest Primary Care in Sellwood/Moreland. She wasn’t disappointed. “I was paying out of pocket and they understood what that meant. I was treated like a regular patient and had a doctor who really listened,” Hymes says.
Dr. David Silver says staff at the clinic, which members have nominated multiple times for the Page of Happiness, are committed to connecting to patients and making sure they know the next step in their treatment plan. If patients haven’t contacted the clinic when expected for their follow-up treatment plan, the staff will call or email patients with instructions, Silver says.
Both doctors and patients need to ask questions and openly communicate with one another. “Patients cannot and will not follow recommendations if they don’t understand them,” Silver adds. “Patients make assumptions that if a doctor sits with them, that’s good communication. You can convey a lot in a short time if you and the patient are on the same wavelength.”
Member Barbara Baker of Canby says her doctor has given her good information over the years, and she appreciates his candor. “He knows what he knows, and if he doesn’t, he will tell you,” she says.
