5 Conditions that don’t need an appointment!

  • walk-in program, mvmc

Walk-In Program provides convenience without sacrificing quality care.

When you aren’t feeling well you want to get on the road to recovery quickly. We understand that and it is why we have always offered same day appointments as often as possible for our patients. This has proven to be a great benefit and service to our patients but we wanted to do more, and now we have!

We now offer a Walk-In Program for five specific conditions. This means that our patients who are suffering from these five conditions will not need to call for an appointment. Simply come to our Forest Grove or Hillsboro office and you will be seen by the first available provider.

MVMC Welcomes Elizabeth Hughes

elizabeth hughes, physician assistantElizabeth Hughes joins our practice as a Physician Assistant after completing her studies at Pacific University. She is a familiar face for our patients as she studied under our very own Karen Kirwan during her last rotation.

Elizabeth brings her passion for partnering and educating her patients as they begin or continue their health journey.

“The complexities of the human body fascinate me, and were one reason for my pursuing a career as a Physician Assistant. I continually educate myself about the human body and pass this knowledge on to patients. I believe this assists them in better understanding their health and the goals we set forth for them.
I strive to form a partnership with patients in order to keep them at their optimal health. I enjoy developing relationships with patients and their families, and believe that this aids in the process of incorporating healthy living into their lives.
There is nothing more fulfilling to me than encouraging patients to meet their health goals and watching them succeed.”

Please join us in welcoming Elizabeth to Mountain View Medical Center!

An Apple a Day – Developing a Health Plan

health plan, providerOne of the questions we often ask our patients during their visit is, “What is the ONE thing you are doing to improve your health?”

This may seem like a simple question with a simple answer, but we have learned that that isn’t always the case. Although the majority of us want to improve our health we don’t know exactly where to start.

We’ve all heard the adage, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”, but when it comes to your health, an open dialogue with your provider is a vital component. Working with your healthcare provider to develop a strategic health plan is the first step in improving your health. Your provider can give you nutritional and exercise guidance as you begin your journey. They will also check in with you during annual appointments to assess the plan and make changes if needed.
