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

Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. 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

the receptionist, while slow with data entry, was very pleasant. he left a caller on hold for a good five minutes while doing the data entry. I suggested the person had been on hold for quite a while and that the caller's request could be more important than my data entry. it turned out that it wasn't , but I think it's important to be able to multi task at least a little bit and to evaluate trelstive priorities. your réception process lacks crispness.

The phone number that was supplied did not give clear instructions or advise on where to get my X Ray. If someone was taken medication these instructions would be confusing.

Dr. Heydon is one of the most useless providers I have ever had. Doesn't want to treat anything, refers all care to some other provider. I am desperate to find a PCP that actually cares about her patients.

This provider was insensitive and I will not be coming back to see her. I was interviewing her to be my new PCP.

after finishing with dr, left in exam room with no explanation what I'm waiting for. eventually I walked out to reception to ask and was given printout report of visit. 10+ extra minutes for this confusion. just need to be clear to patient what is expected at end of exam.

Kim is without question the absolute best primary doc I have ever had. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone needing general primary care. I would also like to say her MA (also named Kim) is also top notch. She is the first MA I've ever had that I can honestly say this about.

waited for a while for labs to be drawn. I think she thought I was getting dressed or something, but I never got undressed...your question about education should list trade schools, apprenticeships, etc- ie I'm a diploma grad nurse!

This was the very first time I had met Kim Heydon. I went more to interview her to determine if she was the right doctor for me. I think that Legacy should refrain from sending out surveys like this one. Your questions seem to be off the mark. Many of my answers to your questions won't make any sense because she doesn't know me very well and I don't know her very well. I am still determining if this doctor is a good match for me.

All good. 1. I brought a letter I received by mail from Rite Aid Pharmacy where I do business with & asked Dr. Heydon to read & discuss with me - this was done to my satisfaction. 2. Prior to seeing Dr. Heydon the MA took my vital signs [details deleted to protect privacy] followed up with a discussion and questions of the last time I visited with my cardiologist & a recommendation to see one recommended by her. I was happy for this recommendation based on my past medical history that currently requires me to take [details deleted to protect privacy] This dr. is very thorough & doesn't waste time during evaluation & discussion.

I am a relatively new patient of Dr. Heydon's but felt she had a good knowledge of my past medical history and plan for care going forward.

Lovely doctor filling in for my regular primary care dr. Seamless care due to complete records. Covered my immediate issue, plus a few loose ends I wanted advice about anyway. Very nice in every way.

After 3 tries, the person trying to draw blood suggested I will need to return to have blood drawn. The person drawing my blood also suggested the trouble might be that I wasn't hydrated enough. I sat in the exam room for 15 minutes waiting - maybe someone should have asked me if I wanted a glass of water during that time to make it easier on everyone. I've been giving blood from years & have never had a time where they couldn't find a vein to use.

My doctor just retired so to find someone like Dr. Kim was wonderful. She took her time answering my questions and concerns. Everyone in that office is to be commended. Kimberly, the medical assistant was awesome. Diane, at the front desk was very kind. Good experience.

This doctor is not personable and she does not examine you correct or does shortcuts. For example - On my last physical exam she barely examine me and did not go through a checklist of physical points that a doctor usually performs on a patient.

Understandably the doctor and I are still quite new to each other and even when I am not incapacitated by pain I am not very articulate but I felt she was not listening to me.

I love Dr. Heydon! she took so much time to explain all of my options for calming anxiety before my presentations and also took into account other prescriptions I'm currently on. she is incredibly knowledgeable, has such a warm demeanor, and overall the best doctor I've ever had!

Typically, I see the PA Kim prior to seeing Dr. Heydon. She wasn't there this visit so I was seen by a floater. Unfortunately, it was her first day. She had not met the team, had an orientation or knew where anything was. She took BP and drug info, but had to keep leaving the room to go ask questions. When it came time to do a blood draw, I asked for a phlebotomist familiar with butterflies and tiny veins. The visit was fine but having a floater totally unfamiliar with the office seemed less professional than I have come to expect from a Legacy facility, and I have been to [location deleted] in the past [date deleted].

I am an extremely complex patient and Dr Heydon is the best PCP that I have ever had. She is able to keep track of my care and remembers details that many doctors don't. Her office also takes additional precautions to make sure I'm as safe there as possible given my health problems and is flexible with me.
