Biography

Dr. Everson specializes in Family Medicine and Preventive Medicine, allowing her to care for individuals from birth across the lifespan, and allowing her to focus on all of the factors that influence health beyond modern medical intervention, including preventive measures such as vaccination, counseling regarding wellness and health maintenance, and health screening tools.

She understands that health is determined by much more than traditional western medicine, and that factors such as our physical environment, the food we eat, our physical activity, the work we do, our family and social connections, our housing, our safety, and our childhood environment including exposure to stress and trauma, determine our health and health behaviors across the lifespan.

In her free time Dr. Everson enjoys spending time with her family, backpacking, gardening, homebrewing, reading modern fiction, running, and community band.

    Teresa Everson is the best doctor I've ever had and I really enjoyed having her as a provider. I feel like she listens to all my needs and really tries to talk care of me and not just check and see if a test result is negative or positive. She actually cares about my full well being and I would recommend her to any of my friends or family.

    Along with being thorough and professional, Dr Everton is one of the most personable doctors I’ve ever been to see.

  • Jan 11, 2019

    One of the best characteristics of a physician is the ability to listen. Theresa Eversen excels. She always makes me feel valued as a patient, trusts my ability to identify critical needs while asking pertinent questions and reassuring me, and provides me with the information I need to improve my health. I have recommended her and the practice to others.

  • Jan 09, 2019

    Hey, very professional accurate and kind provider very good personal conversations. Very good good professional staff. I have nothing but kind things and good things to say about Oregon Health Sciences University.

    I think Dr. Everson is a fantastic. Thank you.

  • Dec 16, 2018

    the doctor gave us very good information and answered all of are questions that made it easy to understand

  • Dec 14, 2018

    Dr. Everson was professional, did not spend a lot of time looking at the computer and when she did she made sure that it was visible to me. Very personable, this was my first visit and I was impressed and relieved to finally have a physician that gave me time and answered what she could and would research what she couldn't.

  • Dec 12, 2018

    I don't know where to start... Dr. Everson is the best doctor I've ever been to. She is caring, calming, trustworthy, listens, compassionate, looks at whatever part of my body that I have an issue with right then. I email her and she responds or I receive a response. Always willing to try to help me. It's like a weight lifts off of you because you know you are safe and will be ok the minute she comes into the room. Her positive attitude, her smile, she makes you feel welcome and that you are not an imposition. Dr. E is a wonderful person and Doctor. I feel blessed. I know she will not let me suffer and will help in anyway possible. The best of the best!

  • Dec 09, 2018

    She was amazing! So through and so nice. I felt like she really cared.

  • Dec 09, 2018

    Dr. Everson has one of the best patient relations characteristics I've ever witnessed. Internal medicine doctor. She is exceptionally competent, she takes time, and speaks with the patients as if we're adults, listens to what we're saying, (INAUDIBLE) gives us information while she's taking our care (INAUDIBLE). All in all, a 10, 10, 10+ as a provider. Take care.

  • Dec 08, 2018

    The only issue was I was in the exam room waiting for 40 minutesfor the Doctor

  • Dec 01, 2018

    My experience was excellent! Dr. Everson is a whole person type of provider, interested in my health and well-being in addition to the specifically physical/medical concerns.

  • Nov 30, 2018

    First she is bilingual Spanish and English, she is very profesional and is a woman and feel more confident

  • Nov 27, 2018

    I was very impressed with the doctor. except for the fact that they said my appointment was at 12:30, and it was not until 1 and I have a driver waiting for me for probably close to 2 hours. That's it.

  • Nov 21, 2018

    I really enjoyed Dr. Everson and the time she spent talking through my history. I had no reason to be at the appointment other than to establish myself as a patient and she created purpose. I felt heard and incredibly comfortable with her. Very excited about having her as a provider.

  • Nov 19, 2018

    I am so fortunate to have Dr Everson as my primary care physician. She is an excellent communicator, very knowledgeable about many health conditions, and is a kind and compassionate doctor. I hope she never leaves the Orenco Station clinic.

  • Nov 18, 2018

    She listens!

  • Nov 05, 2018

    So, we are... we were in the appointment on Friday and the appointment time was 11:20, and she didn't get seen until at least 20-30 minutes after the appointment time was supposed to start, and it was only to get four shots and they didn't get the four shots done until about an hour and a half after her appointment was supposed to happen. So they were way behind staffed and they didn't provide communication about the delays. And timely shot disposal. So I think our biggest communication with just the clinic needs to do a better job of communicating delays and being cognizant of patient's time. That's our feedback.

  • Nov 03, 2018

    Teresa was very personable and had a great sense of humor. She put my concerns to rest.

  • Oct 18, 2018

    Hi, Dr. Everson was really welcoming first time patient. I didn't feel like she was holding her authority over me she felt like she was right there. She explains things very well. She took her time with me everything that you would want with a doctor and also, of course she was very knowledgeable. So I can't recommend her enough. I haven't met a doctor like this for a long time, and I think she's just wonderful. Bye.

  • Oct 12, 2018

    She was amazing. Very easy to talk to, it felt like she actually cared about me.

  • Oct 07, 2018

    Had a great meeting with Dr. Everson to establish a PCP. Really felt that she listened and spent the time I needed. Awesome!

  • Oct 04, 2018

    Took time and care with my daughter

  • Oct 02, 2018

    I really like Dr. Everson she seems to care about my health and listens to my concerns

  • Sep 20, 2018

    Great, very caring, and I felt she would be extremely capable with a heath emergency.

  • Sep 18, 2018

    One of t he first doctors I have had in a long time that actually listened to me--and let me be involved with my care. Also one of the first who actually had checked my file before she came in to see me--and remembered things we had talked about the previous visit. I liked her very much.

  • Sep 13, 2018

    Dr. Everson is the breath of fresh air in my life that I look forward to with every appointment. She is thorough, a great listener, and I always feel she has my best interests at heart.
