We live in Chico CA. withe same population as Bend. There is a shortage of Doctors and advanced medical services. I a person needs surgery, more then the basic, theyhave to go to Sacramento or the Bay Area Hospitals.
We are retired and one of our top needs in moving to another city is we can get good Medical Services. I now drive over 2 hours to Vacaville to get treatment at a Clinic for my Vascular problems. I will need to get a Vascular Surgeon and both of us will need a Primary Care Doctor. Our Primary Care Doctor here in Chico is in with 8 other Doctors and when you call the main office that first thing you hear is "none of the Doctors at this location are taking any new Patients".

You will have trouble finding a primary care doctor. If you have Medicare or tricare , forget it.

The hospital in Bend wins national awards for quality. There are a lot of highly rated specialist doctors who want to live in Bend for the lifestyle. Whether or not the specialty you need is available, you would have to inquire. Really specialized stuff, you might have to go to Portland.
