About me

Dr. Lindsay Thimmig [pronounced "tim-ig"] is a family physician, meaning she cares for people of all ages from newborns to the elderly. Dr. Thimmig chose family medicine because she believes that prevention is the best medicine and because she likes being able to care for patients no matter what health problem or concern they might have. She works with patients to make lifestyle changes to improve their health, and prefers to start with these changes before prescribing medications or recommending surgeries.

She has trained under some of the leading experts in plant-based nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine, including Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Neal Barnard, and Dr. James Loomis.

Outside of work, Dr. Thimmig aims to spend as much time outdoors as possible. She also enjoys relaxing at home with her orange cat and going on adventures around Oregon with friends and family. She also loves cooking up plant-based recipes in her spare time.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
