He only wants to deal with simple wellness issues. He'll readily pass you along to a specialist rather than answer specific questions. He also double charge you if he thinks you are taking up too much of his time.

I encourage the person who entered the below comment on 2/12/13 concerning Dr. Backus to log a formal complaint with the Oregon Medical Board. Here was the comment: When my mother was alive and in the hospital we had Dr. Backus as the doctor on call. We had just come from the coag clinic and they had sent us to the hospital and asked that give the doctor information that my mothers blood level was at an 8. Dr. Backus came and prescribed medications including more blood thinner. When I asked him if he had seen the information I had brought from the coag clinic he proceded to yell at me. Very loadly right in front of my sick mother and 3 nurses stood in the door way afraid to come in. It went on for about 5minutes. He then said he would not be our doctor any longer and then came back the next day. In my opinion Dr. Backus is unsteady and shouldn't even be allowed to prctice. Insurance: Medicare Here is where to file the complaint: http://www.oregon.gov/omb/pages/complaint.aspx

I have had Dr. Backus as my primary care doctor for the last several years. He is easy to talk to, takes his time, and is proactive. He's probably the best primary care doctor I've had as an adult. His office staff is very helpful and personable as well. He is proactive and very helpful with keeping a lid on prescription costs, although sometimes it seems like he orders a lot of tests. Overall, I would definitely recommend him, and I have to several of my friends.

His arrogance does a good job of concealing what medical skills he has.
