Dr. McNichol's bio

This content was provided by Dr. McNichol "I was raised in Detroit, Michigan as the 2nd oldest of 6 kids. My dad was a doctor and my mom a nurse, so it's no surprise that I grew up to be both. I moved to Seattle after receiving my nursing degree from University of Michigan and spent 15 years working as a Pediatric nurse there and in and Oakland. I thoroughly enjoyed nursing, but I wanted new challenges, so I returned to school. I entered Jefferson Medical College in center city Philadelphia located just blocks from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. The area was rich with history and lots of activity. As much as I enjoyed all that Philadelphia had to offer, I returned to the West Coast to practice medicine. Upon graduation in 1996, I fled the fast pace of the East Coast and moved to Portland to complete a 3 year residency in Family Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). Then in 1999, I joined NWPC and have really enjoyed my work here, first at our Milwaukie location and now at the Sellwood clinic."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McNichol "I like the challenge of the variety of patients I see in clinic every day and I truly do see "newborns to nineties" and am fortunate to know several generations in many of our families.

With my senior patients, I like to open the conversation with their families about their wishes for end of life care planning. We discuss issues and I can answer questions they may have about setting goals, palliative care and hospice plans."

If you need a functional doctor who prescribes medicine and gives you a referral she is the right person. If you are looking for someone who listens, is interested in you as a person and to build a long term relationship with I would say go look for someone else, which is what I will be doing.
