Patient Comments

  • Apr 30, 2019

    Dr.Visser was thorough with her exam, and extremely informative and candid in her explanation of my issue. She answered all of my questions with the same candor, but in a way that was sensitive to my concerns about my future. One of the best doctor/patient encounters I have ever had!

  • Apr 11, 2019

    Very good listener, and helped me a lot.

  • Mar 28, 2019

    wonderful

  • Mar 22, 2019

    My appointment was at 10:00 but she was well behind so I didn't get called in until 11:00 and waited in the room for another 20 minutes before I saw her.The display board behind the receptionist did post that she was running 45 minutes behind.

  • Mar 21, 2019

    As a new patient, I was impressed with the Doctor's review of my medical history with oral questions starting from the beginning (over 20 years ago) to present and the use of previous treatment records. Very thorough and detailed for a complex condition.

  • Mar 20, 2019

    Dr. Visser listens, is knowledgeable, is interested in solutions in addressing problems I am having, and is someone I trust. My office visits with her a positive, I feel heard, and I always feel that she takes the time I need with her and is able to effectively communicate with me in a positive and straightforward manner, which I appreciate.

  • Mar 14, 2019

    Dr. Amy Visser is excellent. She absolutely knows what she's doing and we are thrilled that we can come to her for advice because I have a rare neuro muscular disease and she gives me a lot of faith and confidence that I'm being taken care of in the manner I need to and she's very creative thorough, does a lot of research and she has been a wonderful resource. I'm really thankful for her.

  • Mar 01, 2019

    Excellent

  • Mar 01, 2019

    Mostly good, but surprised there is only one wheelchair ramp. Seems like there should be one right in front of the doors.

  • Feb 11, 2019

    I'm very very pleased with my care with Dr. Visser not sure how to say it. She's been outstanding, very attentive, and I've been very very pleased.

  • Jan 31, 2019

    She's an excellent doctor and I had a lot of anxiety in regards to things I didn't know about and she explained them very well and she's awesome. So that's my feedback.

  • Jan 05, 2019

    She spent over 2hours with us. She listened and took copious notes.

  • Jan 01, 2019

    We just talked and I walked away with 3 to-dos for myself to contact other doctors. I was expecting something more.

  • Dec 21, 2018

    It was over an hour wait to see the doctor.She is very thorough.

  • Dec 08, 2018

    Well, once again I end up with no clear answers as to my diagnostic problems. I can not understand why at such a large Neuro-department that they are only focused on a few neurological diseases.

  • Dec 06, 2018

    She listens to my questions and we talked about my treatment and my prognosis and my diagnosis thoroughly.

  • Nov 28, 2018

    Very attentive to needs and concerns. Always listens to what you have to say. This is important due to the fact that there is no treatment for my disease.

  • Nov 15, 2018

    Dr. Visser was very attentive. She reviewed the options for identifying a root cause of my neuropathy, ordered tests that may help us in that effort, and explained that there may not be a definitive diagnosis that is treatable. I appreciated her clarity and efficiency.

  • Nov 13, 2018

    The wait is long

  • Nov 10, 2018

    I appreciate that Dr. Visser asks me lots of questions, reviews my history, and then does an exam to evaluate my CMT. She seems very thorough and listens very well and gives me advice. Thank you.

  • Nov 03, 2018

    My husband and I were both really extremely impressed. I felt like she really cares for whatever condition is bothering me and she took plenty of time with me and answered questions. I don't think I've had this for years.

  • Nov 02, 2018

    I receive excellent care from Dr Visser , her knowledge of my situation is outstanding . She takes extra care to listen and then make suggestions to improve my care .

  • Nov 02, 2018

    High quality care

  • Oct 24, 2018

    Great experience.

  • Oct 12, 2018

    It was fine!

  • Oct 03, 2018

    Both this provider and the resident take time to listen to me. There is not much that can be done for me (my illness has no treatment and no cure), but it is invaluable to feel heard when I explain new symptoms, how I am feeling mentally and physically with regard to the progression of my illness, and of course a full neurological physical exam was performed.

  • Sep 19, 2018

    She listens to everything you have to say. She takes her time with you. You never feel rushed. She is extremely knowledgable!

  • Sep 13, 2018

    Extremely pleased with the thorough and complete consultation. Came away feeling much better about my health and current condition. One of the best doctor/patient experiences I've ever had!

  • Aug 13, 2018

    Always patient and gives time needed.Answers all questions.Willing to dicuss all questions.

  • Aug 08, 2018

    I was pleased with the visits every time I go down there Dr. Visser is very knowledgeable and helps seems to be helping, you know, cares enough to help out and listen.

  • Aug 07, 2018

    very caring and truly concerned.

  • Aug 03, 2018

    Dr. Visser was great. We transferred from another physician in a different part of Oregon and I really appreciated how well she listened. She was patient, she took notes, she had great feedback. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you.

  • Jul 31, 2018

    Actually, I did not see Amy Visser yesterday on the 30th of July. She was out of the office and I had 2 other people taking care of my visit. But I do recommend her, I am very happy with her, and so that is all I can tell you.

  • Jul 12, 2018

  • Jul 12, 2018

    My doc is a very smart, knowledgable lady. She explains thinngs very well, and does care about me as a patient.

  • Jul 11, 2018

    Yes, Dr. Vizzer seemed to be a good neurologist, she seemed to do pretty good, she didnt' have an answer for all my concerns but I don' tknow if there even is an answer so, she seems to be a good doctor, thanks, bye.

  • Jul 10, 2018

    Excellent clinician. Pays great attention to her patients.

  • May 13, 2018

    Excellent doctor.

  • Apr 15, 2018

    I was told I have either a lower back-related nerve issue or neuropathy. I found myself asking questions like, "so...., what should I do next?". I think since the pain wasn't acute I was left following an idiopathic route in trying to determine the cause of my symptoms. Again, it appears to me that the patient has to be smart enough to pursue their own health care solutions unless it is something that requires some immediate treatment. Seem like there is a fair amount of lack of care or innovation in helping a patient diagnose issues.

  • Apr 11, 2018

    I would recommend Dr. Visser if someone I knew needed to see a neurologist at OHSU.
