    I think Ahmed Raslan did a great job. It's unfortunate that healthcare came to the point where it's very difficult to fight insurance or go through scheduling and a way that makes me very shaky at that to having any sort of way to you know, rely on or to think of methodology is the best for you. So I think a lot of it goes with education, but it's hard to communicate and educate and do all that stuff when someone swarms of trauma. Anyway, Dr. Raslan did a great job.

    I just wanted to say that you did a wonderful job. It was very pleasant being there. I felt comfortable and relaxed and thank you again.

    Dr. Raslan provided excellent care as well as the whole surgical team including anesthesiologists to the nurses to everyone. This is the best care I received probably in my life going from VA Health Care to getting seen at OHSU for my spine injury is a world of difference. I would prefer to go to OHSU and see Dr. Raslan again for any neurological neurosurgery things in the future. So thank you very much for taking the time to listen to me and actually recommend and complete the surgery. That is all. Thank you.
