Upon admission on March 7, I was treated very well, very respectfully, and efficiently by all medical personnel at CHH. Dr. Herzka explained to me and my wife both how the surgery went and was very informative and reassuring.

    Most excellent. Dr. Herzka is the best doctor I think I've ever met my life. I think her very much for the surgery she performed on me, and my recovery is going great. Thank you.

  • Feb 18, 2019

    After my surgery, the provider chose to tell me what had happened while I was in the recovery room, and I was on a lot of medication. She did not discuss what happened in the surgery or what was done or what the results were with my husband, who was the person driving me home who is my caretaker. He was not given any information at all. All the information was given to me while I was very much under the influence of medications that they had given me for the anesthesia. And this was very ... frustrating, and I would like you to pass *

  • Feb 17, 2019

    Dr. Herzka was exceptionally knowledgeable about my type of injury and the surgical procedure required to fix it. She was quickly able to determine the extent of my injury in ways that doctors I had spoken to previously were not. She is a good listener and a good communicator, and my impression is that she is quite competent. I am grateful for having been referred to her.

  • Feb 05, 2019

    Dr. Herzka does a great job explaining and is great with connecting with my 12 year old.

    Patient centered

  • Jan 12, 2019

    She is so personable. I immediately built rapport and trust. I was in a very vulnerable place and she respected where I was and kept me in my comfort zone the whole time

  • Dec 12, 2018

    Dr Herzka took time to answer my questions and thoroughly explain.

  • Dec 09, 2018

    I just felt like Dr. Hurt really listened to me and had a very sensible approach. She didn't push surgery and she also seemed concerned about my general health and he keeping me active. She was great.

  • Dec 07, 2018

    The wait was extremely long despite checking in early and having multiple nurses check vitals, get IV, and getting me admitted.

  • Dec 04, 2018

    Dr. Herzka is the best surgeon you have at OHSU. She has a great bedside manner and is the consummate professional.

  • Dec 03, 2018

    Dr. Herzka was very kind. She's really efficient. She diagnosed my PCL without even looking at the MRI results when every other doctor said that it was ACL. She really explained things to me and made me feel a lot more confident. And I mean, she did an amazing job on my knee. She takes as much time as I need with me. She's just a really great doctor and person and she's really awesome.

  • Dec 01, 2018

    Dr. Hertzga was very nice,showed and explained everything down to detail. She answered all questions and heard my concerns and thoughts. I was highly impressed and felt she saw me as a person she could help and not just another person as a $$$. I liked her a lot.

  • Dec 01, 2018

    She's a pro

  • Nov 16, 2018

    She has good ideas and could see I needed more help then just my knee.She had a concern about my balance and I liked that.

  • Nov 16, 2018

    No nonsense! I'm only a few days out of hip surgery and feeling way better than expected. It's a team effort and I thought very highly of everyone who worked with me before, during, and after surgery.

  • Nov 16, 2018

    She seems to be very knowledgeable and great at her job as a surgeon.

  • Nov 10, 2018

    She made a mistake on her paperwork or notes for an injection to help my rotator kuff. My insurance denied the injection request because of this. Its incomprehensible (gasp!) that a doctor would actually make a mistake but it happened!

  • Nov 10, 2018

    Dr. Herzka was very informative. Very supportive and an excellent provider. I would recommend her to anyone needing this type of surgery. Thank you.

  • Nov 05, 2018

    She was very thorough very personable. Very attentive and very informative.

  • Nov 04, 2018

    She's very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and very talented.

  • Nov 03, 2018

    She belittled my pain level, which was at an 8 by telling me that I am "overly sensitive" when she pressed on my joint and forcibly moved my damaged shoulder. She called my Ehler-Danlos Syndrome "fibromyalgia," which it's not. Then she contrarily told me that I wasn't a good candidate for surgery because of my EDS. After telling me that she couldn't operate on me, which was absolutely devastating, she mumbled "nice to meet you" and just walked out, leaving me to absorb the news that I'm permanently disabled on my own. I left in pain and tears. I don't know why I was referred to her and told that she could help EDS patients, because she won't. It was a waste of my time. She has no understanding of or compassion for people who have EDS. I wouldn't recommend her to anyone.

  • Nov 03, 2018

    she is really kind and listened to my concerns.

  • Nov 02, 2018

    Very skilled at her job and great bedside manner. Put my son, actually our whole family, at ease.
