About Us

History

Oregon Medical Group is a primary care based, multispecialty physician group with offices throughout the Eugene/Springfield area. Our group consists of internists, family practitioners, pediatricians, obstetricians / gynecologists, and several specialists including orthopedics, otolaryngology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, pain management, dermatology, and neurology. We have a wide variety of ancillary services to support efficient patient care and access, including laboratory, diagnostic imaging, a women's breast health center (Cedar Clinic), infusion services, anticoagulation, audiology, and physical therapy.

Our group was formed in 1988 with the principle that physician control and direction is essential for the provision of high quality medical care. In addition, we believe that being in a group practice allows for greater continuity of patient care than in other types of practices. We strive to attract the brightest and best-trained physicians within each specialty of the practice. We encourage their pursuit of continuing education to provide patient care based on the most current and innovative accepted practice standards. Our physicians maintain a positive working relationship with both of the area's hospitals, Sacred Heart Medical Center and McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center. Collectively, these organizations provide the full spectrum of health-related hospital services throughout the Lane County area.

Our medical practice is governed by Clinic Directors, comprised of physicians.
