About Me:

I grew up in Montana and is an avid outdoors enthusiast. I became interested in medicine while working with a medical team caring for Australian Aborigines. I came to Oregon to attend Lewis and Clark College. I have worked as emergency medicine physician, hospitalist, urgent care physician and with Indian Health Services in Montana. I now do the full spectrum of family medicine. I enjoy seeing entire families. I have a special interest in sports medicine. I strongly believe in preventative medicine and helping the patient establish healthy lifestyle to maintain optimal physical, emotional health. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and animals, and love all sports and the outdoors. Please note: Before joining Legacy Medical Group-Raleigh Hills, Dr. Heydon provided care at Legacy Medical Group-Forest Heights, which closed on March 24, 2017.

Year I Started Practice: 1996
Hospitals Served: Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center

We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

When Dr Hendin was not available he directed me to see Dr Heydon to assess my pain. She carefully diagnosed diverticulitis and prescribed the proper medication. She was very personable and thorough in both examination and recommended treatment. I was in and out in less than 45 minutes.

Scheduled for a 40 minute time slot, spent 20 minutes with provider. She always seems rushed and like she just wants to leave. I never feel like I can say what I need to say because she seems like she doesn't have the time and seems very disinterested and not caring at all.

this was the first time seeing this provider since my doctor retired,so I didn't really know her and she didn't really know me which was a little awkward. but I did seem to like her and will probably go back to her.

We have been with Dr. Heydon for almost 15 years. And we only request she stay in the area as long as we do! :). Because she is the best doctor and we trust her 110%!

My only comment was that I had gone to an ortho specialist for my shoulder without a referral (b/c my ins did not require it) and I felt that was frowned upon. I can't afford to pay a co-pay to get a referral that I can do myself. HOWEVER, I DO appreciate that when we discussed what the referral had discovered with an MRI they ordered that I DID appreciate her feedback and discussion regarding a referral to a neurosurgeon and comments about that process and coordinating additional care with Dr. Heydon being kept in the loop. :)

The main purpose of my visit was to get a referral to a sleep center to get a new C-pap machine. The doctor was not able to find my previous (Providence) sleep center provider but apparently referred me to Pacific Sleep center. I have not heard from them yet but will attempt to call them this week.

Dr. Heydon is very thorough, matter of fact in the nicest possible way. She's very informed and things ahead as to how to help me for instance when we were talking out my dry eyes, she asked me to also ask my eye doctor (who I see 4 times a year).

I was in search of a primary care physician. This was my first visit with Dr. Kim Heydon. As soon as she walked in the door, she had this big smile on her face that made me feel comfortable. Thereafter, she began to ask me about my health and the reason for my visit. During my entire interaction, she was very professional, courteous and a very good sense of humor.

This was my first visit with Dr. Heydon and I was immediately impressed. She was pleasant, informative, respected what I had to say, and she listened well. She reviewed my current medications and supplements and made some changes and, most importantly, explained why she was making the changes. In was altogether very impressed with Dr. Heydon.

Worst doctor ever! Dr had her nurse call me in to see her and did not explain why. Then at the appointment, the Dr accused me of making the appointment. Then advised me that she would not fill out the required paperwork for my medicine. Don't know why she could not of had her nurse told me over the phone vs call me in to tell me. Then the Dr went on to say the nurse advised me of that which is not true, I have the phone message, but the Dr would not listen to me at all. Then Dr was still obviously upset over prior apt, where I needed disability papers filled out. Advised reception of this when I made the apt, the nurse helped me fill out the papers. Just needed a few lines filled out and signed. Then the Dr. came in the room and said she no longer does these, to the surprise of her nurse. Then went off about how they (reception) know this and would not of scheduled the apt if they knew this. I said they did know this, the receptionist came in the room and apologised. Yet, at this new apt the Dr was still upset about this, and repeated this again. This is the worst Dr ever, to keep denying me services and talking out of both sides of her mouth. Actively looking for a new doctor. This Dr doesn't like to do anything and pushes back on everything. Total waste of my time.

From the moment I entered the clinic I was treated professionally & with a genuine interest in my visit. Dr. Heydon was very thorough with the exam & well prepared to discuss my visits with my cardiologist. Dr. Heydon was very complimentary on my health & my exercise program.

I'm so lucky to have Dr. Kim Heydon as my primary doctor. She is such an awesome doctor, so caring , thorough and quick to give me the test results. I recently had a medical emergency and she was extremely helpful in every way. She even called me from her home on her day off and advised me what to do next which really shows and proves how caring and concerned she is towards her patients. Thank You Dr. Kim Heydon.
