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

We recently received notice that the Solar Eclipse Glasses that our Ophthalmology department has been distributing to (eye) patients 7/25/17 - 8/11/17 have been recalled due to ISO certification uncertainty.  Even though the glasses indicate ISO 12312-2 certified, we have not received confirmation from the supplier that our order was sourced from a recommended manufacturer.  We are strongly advising that you discard and do not use the solar glasses if you picked them up from our Ophthalmology departments located at our Beaverton, Downtown and South offices and use glasses that have been supplied from a reputable vendor to ensure the utmost viewing safety.  (Note:  the Solar Eclipse glasses distributed through our pediatric department are confirmed to be ISO certified).
