Gastroenterology Reviews in Portland


After many years of being caught up in a sometimes unproductive medical system trying to deal with chronic and life threatening health issues, I developed "White Coat Syndrome". After working with some specialists who don't really engage in a two-way conversation with patients, I had low expectations. That changed the minute Dr.
walked into the room and introduced himself.

He was professional, compassionate and an excellent communicator. I never felt rushed and I felt like he understood where I was coming from. He set clear expectations and communicated about every detail from the reason why he wanted to perform a procedure to what the results were, before I ever left the office. After my colonoscopy, the nurse told me that he was waiting to speak with me in one of their exit rooms. I was terrified, because in the past this had always meant there was bad news to deliver. I then realized this was how they operate, they communicate every detail with the patient before they leave. I've never had a physician do that before!

is the kind of doctor I would love to have for all of my care, and that is saying a lot coming from someone with too much experience with the medical system. I was treated like a human being rather than a chart with a much too long list of issues. I am grateful for his style of patient-care and for helping me when I was less than hopeful. I would not hesitate to go back to him and refer other's to him, he is outstanding.

- Sheri E.

It was a painless experience, even the prep was efficient and not that bad. I have chronic pain in my back and I have to be very careful with medication. I had absolutely no problems with the medications he gave me and I woke up feeling fine. The first one I went to wanted to put me in the hospital. Dr.
did not even think it was necessary and the whole process was just seamless.

The nurses, however, are another story. They sit behind a locked door & woe betide you should complete your blood draw at 12:01, after the official start of their lunch. You'll just have to wait until 1:00.

Need to reach the nurses by phone? You must go through The Protocol: leave your name, number, Dr.'s name, what you want, then wait for their return call. If you are not by a phone, waiting for their call, you're out of luck. If you need a quick answer to a question, the receptionists, a scant three yards from the nurse's station, will not accommodate you.

This issue has gotten progressively worse over the last few years.

I've been seeing him for 19 years. We are growing old together but he is younger. He is extremely personable and very caring. He puts me completely at ease. He makes the procedures as good as can be. He cares about me. He is known as a doctor's doctor. I have recommended him to my wife because she will need a colonscopy.

She is a real good doctor and there was nothing negative about my visit. There was no problem getting an appointment. They gave me written instructions and some stuff in bottles to drink. I tried to drink as much as I could. I went for the appointment - on one of the visits, I could also see the monitor. I didn?t feel any discomfort. Afterwards, they gave me a little sandwich and some orange juice. I was still kind of dizzy, and so I waited a while and then went home. I didn?t have a problem with their billing. I would use them in the future, if necessary.

They are always improving, the last procedure that I had they used a different anesthesia and a different process, so, it was very much easier compare to the earlier procedures. They are staying up on what is best for their patients and it is really nice. He also takes the time with you when the procedure is over to talk to you, show you your pictures and explain what he found or did not find. The whole staff is also great.

I have been seeing him for a couple of years. His credentials are excellent. He studied in North-Western Medical School and was a needy physician for 12 years. He is very friendly and thorough. He answers all my questions and even remembers me. It is nice as he is a surgeon. He is certified by the board for internal medicine and also for gastroenterology. I think very highly of him.

put me on a medical treatment which has literally changed my life and given me back my freedom to do as I like and this is priceless. She is accessible, curteous, friendly, knowledgeable and sincere. She makes you feel comfortable, speaks with clarity and is well-versed in her field. I would definately reccommend her to anyone with the same diagnosis as myself.

He was delightful. My only problem was the anesthesiologist. He has only three available. They found a substitute anesthesiologist at the last moment and she was also delightful. They were good at making me feel comfortable and explained the procedure. His office staff is outstanding. I can reach them easily on the phone. They were very courteous when I was confused about the instructions. They told me what I needed to do. The lab staff is also wonderful.

The clinic has you pay a preliminary visit first where you fill out paperwork, review the prep etc. with staff, and visit with the assigned physician. The clinic is very efficient, and you feel a little like a number, yet I appreciate the efficiency for something that is simply good, preventative medicine. Dr.

explained the procedure and answered my questions, which were few. When it came to the day of the colonoscopy, they were again very efficient and I was in and out in no time at all, which was fine with me. The clinic prepares a detailed report which is reviewed with you, and you can take it with you (complete with photos!). I liked having this kind of information to keep. Fortunately, the colonoscopy was fine, and Dr.
