Patient Comments

    Our entire visit to OHSU was positive. It was our first time at OHSU and we traveled over 6 hours each way to be there. We were not disappointed. Everyone, from the valet parking attendants, the receptionists, the doctor, and his assistants were marvelous. The atmosphere at OHSU was so positive... which is very unique. You all are to be congratulated on creating such an exceptional environment. It was apparent in the demeanor of the patients we encountered. Thank you!

    My last appointment he wasan hour and 15 minutes late, then only was in the room with me for less than 15 seconds. I had questions about my upcoming surgery but he walked out so quickly I couldn't even ask. It was very rude. Thankfully another Dr was around so I asked her

  • Dec 06, 2019

    My experience in all aspects was very pleasant, informative and quite refreshing since normally it's a stressful time

  • Dec 06, 2019

    Very comfortable conversation. In "plain English" so easy to understand.

  • Nov 16, 2019

    Very skilled

  • Nov 04, 2019

    I did not see him. So I wouldn't be able to evaluate him.

  • Nov 04, 2019

    Dr. Raslan was very responsive. He listened dollar questions. He was kind he was not condescending. He was knowledgeable. He talked about our options and I felt did an excellent job of of talking to us and telling about us telling us what was going on.

  • Nov 03, 2019

    Very professional, more comfortable this time. Answered all questions. My only regret is that he books surgeries out so far. I guess that's what you get when you have a "10" doctor.

  • Nov 01, 2019

    Dr. Raslan is a good listener when it comes to helping meet your needs. He knows his job and where to refer you to further your care.

  • Nov 01, 2019

    I enjoyed the provider. He knew what he was talking about and was one of the first ones to actually know what I was talking about and provide me solution and what to do next. So I really, really appreciated that.

  • Oct 28, 2019

    Dr. Raslan was very kind and knowledgeable. He took his time with us and explained everything in detail. He seemed genuinely concerned and wanted us to feel at ease, which we greatly appreciated.

  • Oct 25, 2019

    Dr. Raslan and his team provided amazing customer care throughout my surgery. I am looking forward to my recovery and working with him and his team post surgery. Keep up the excellence!

    Yes, I had a very good experience with Ahmed he was very knowledgeable. Very professional. Has to get all the facts. and I wish that his team would give me a call regarding some information I have. Thank you.

  • Oct 20, 2019

    Yes, Dr. Raslan is an extremely wise and smart physician and we would definitely go back to him again and hopefully he can always take care of our health needs.

  • Oct 20, 2019

    I think Dr. Raslan is an amazing surgeon and dr. I would definitely recommend him to any family and friends that I have and I trust him with my life through many surgeries to come.

  • Oct 18, 2019

    I was very impressed with his clear, precise presentation of information. I felt heard and that he wanted me to understand my medical situation to be able to make good choices for myself.

  • Oct 18, 2019

    Our visits are always great. Sometimes the extra wait time is a little much, but it’s to be expected when we travel from afar for our appointments.

  • Oct 17, 2019

    Amazing surgical team. Works well together and provides patient care and communication.

  • Oct 15, 2019

    On time, professional, friendly, great emphasis on my needs and concerns.

  • Oct 14, 2019

    I was very pleased with Dr Raslans timely appointment, and his explanation of the procedure I need! I feel better prepared to face the procedure, and the recovery time line. Hopefully, I will be able to enjoy the holiday season with my family, this year.

  • Oct 14, 2019

    He may be super but his bed side manner was lacking.

  • Oct 14, 2019

    Dr Raslan, is well respected and his reviews are very strong. He was very thorough in his Pre Surgery Test he ran since May 2019 when he first met me. The only feedback is please take a few more minutes to discuss next steps and my rehab following surgery.

  • Oct 04, 2019

    Dr. Raslan was informative & made us feel completely at ease about my upcoming procedure

  • Oct 04, 2019

    Excellent

  • Sep 20, 2019

    Informative,built confindence,Great!!

  • Sep 19, 2019

    He's very wise and I appreciate all his help.

  • Sep 14, 2019

    He was informative & gave clear & concise information & feedback.

  • Sep 14, 2019

    There are things in life which (without rhyme or reason) are simply unavoidable. When those situations; particularly the emergency situation as it affected rescheduling calls for a higher degree of understanding and patience.I found the level of caring from both the provider and everyone else to be nothing short of exemplary. In my opinion, I really believes Dr.Raslan genuinely cares.

  • Sep 13, 2019

    Very knowledgeable and showed us excellent care and communication. Thank you for giving us your best and really caring about what treatment would be most successful for my future health. He explained more about my condition and options then any doctor we have previously seen regarding my nerve damage. We left appointment feeling complete trust in him and his team going forward with the treatment plan decided upon.

  • Sep 09, 2019

    I feel doctor, my doctor was very experienced and gave me excellent care.

  • Sep 06, 2019

    It was fine. After surgery we will know more about his skills.

  • Sep 06, 2019

    well they treated me well.

  • Sep 03, 2019

    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.

  • Sep 01, 2019

    The Dr. did not do what he was supposed to do, FOR THE 2ND TIME

  • Aug 31, 2019

    I received information I have been waiting for since July 1

  • Aug 30, 2019

    Dr. Raslan gets right to the point and is very astute

  • Aug 30, 2019

    The level of expertise, making the patient feel welcomed and cared for is truly exceptional.

  • Aug 27, 2019

    Appreciate Dr. Raslan talking with us and his willingness to try to adjust his schedule to meet our needs as quickly as possible and the only thing I wished is that we had had a little more time to discuss a little bit more in detail about the planned procedure, but I believe the office is going to try to meet that request but with some printed information. So, thank you.

  • Aug 25, 2019

    I was very satisfied with the service that I received, and the doctor in a that was there was very straight forward, and let me know everything that I needed to know and I was pleased with their response. Thank you.

  • Aug 23, 2019

    Dr. Raslan's been my doctor for a couple years now and has done a few surgeries on me. He's probably the best neurosurgeon on earth and the kindest of guy ever. I would go to him anytime and I trust him with my life. So I definitely recommend it. Thank you.

  • Aug 23, 2019

    Friendly, caring, professional

  • Aug 23, 2019

    Thorough and helpful

  • Aug 23, 2019

    Friendly, caring. Knowledgeable

  • Aug 19, 2019

    He has always been there for me. Except it's hard to get the appointment I need at the time that I need it for. But the providers themselves are a ten. Thank you.

  • Aug 18, 2019

    Dr. Raslan was very friendly, and explained things to me as I needed, and he would have answered more questions if I have more. It was a good experience this time.

  • Aug 18, 2019

    He was a great provider business like straight to the point, and I enjoyed my time with them, and I'm going to enjoy being his patient moving forward with my injury. Thank you.
