Melinda Meeker, FNP-BC

Urgent Care


I have lived in the northwest for over 20 years. I love being so close to nature and adventure. I studied to be an artist; however, my brain craved some scientific exploration. A friend’s mom suggested nursing and my life took an unexpected, marvelous turn. I have worked at The Portland Clinic for over 5 years now. I worked as a perioperative RN in the ambulatory surgery center, and now as a family nurse practitioner, I work in our urgent care department in Tigard. I love the variability and unique challenges of urgent care. As a family nurse practitioner I am able to see patients and their families in times of need. I especially enjoy educating patients and empowering them to make determinations regarding their health. I love to hike, camp, and explore. I enjoy painting pictures of animals and people. Spending time with my family, friends, and wild terrier Annie always manages to energize me.

Please Note: Melinda practices in our Urgent Care department and cannot be selected as a Primary Care Provider.
