Patient Comments

    This visit was typical of the high standards of OHSU, and my experiences over multiple visits to CHH. The building is welcoming and well-maintained, which is great, but what blows my mind is how every person I encounter, at every level, exudes a commitment to get it right that I haven't always found in other area medical centers, and never so universally-practiced, based on the past thirty years of far more than an equal share of reasons to visit hospitals and medical practices large and small.As for 11/8/18, at my appt to re-stablish with Dr. Raslan:. Reception was friendly and efficient (as always). I was seen promptly and settled well by the med assistant. Dr. Mazerhart (spelling?) did intake with a quick neuro exam & listened to my summary of woes (excellent manner). Dr. Raslan addressed my needs and concerns succinctly and very satisfactorily. Everyone was fully engaged except the med assistant or nurse, who seemed a little bit elsewhere, but did his job perfectly and respectfully.Medical outcomes should not be the issue when evaluating medical services, but rather the sense that everyone is giving their best effort to help one find the best path to ones best available health. The learning environment of OHSU means people are always bringing everything they know to bear. The welcoming nature of nearly everyone is what makes it easier to bear the negative parts of needing medical support and care.[editorial: the approach to excellence described above should be the universal standard with which we treat all others around us or in our purview, and that would lighten the load of all the humans on this astral pebble.]Thanks for letting me tell you how great you are. Don't let it flag.

    He is professional in his work but does not have a good bed side manner.

    If it wasn't for Dr. Roslyn. I probably would be in a wheelchair by now, but he's kept me from being. Incapacitated and has help me with my spine injury. And there's still a lot to do on it.

    I thought he was very professional. I think he's the best oral surgeon that you can find, and he was very knowledgeable and he knew what to do, and in his hands I feel safe.

  • Oct 27, 2018

    Very direct in giving evaluation of symtoms and possible causes. Will follow up with an appointment for a scan soon

  • Oct 27, 2018

    I thought he was very nice. He seemed very knowledgeable. And that's what I know, and I don't know. I've got to have another MRI. I don't understand that. He didn't say anything about it when I was there, but I don't know if something else is up or what so that's what I know. Thank you.
