A passion to care for underserved populations inspired Patricia Green, FNP, to pursue a career in medicine. She emphasizes the importance of communication in the promotion of health and well-being. In her practice, Patricia has been involved in the development of home visits to patients who otherwise have limited access to the clinic. She also sees patients in the internal medicine clinic and supports refill requests and telephone calls.
Patricia believes her most important role as a family nurse practitioner is to partner with patients and families to develop a plan of care that most meets their needs and individual style. She has been working with the elderly population for the last 10 years. "My job when meeting with families is to identify problems, evaluate health obstacles, present care options, and help facilitate those choices," said Patricia. "This fits well with our new model of patient-centered care."
After earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Patricia completed her Master of Science degree in Nursing from Vanderbilt University School of Nursing.
Patricia recently moved to Portland from Alaska, where she lived for 40 years. In her free time, she enjoys exploring the Pacific Northwest and spending time with her children who live in Portland and Seattle.
