    Great experience. Follow up visit with my bariatric surgeon and dietician. I was able to get questions answered about my recovery and diet restrictions. Helpful staff. The staff was able to coordinate my visit with the nutritionist so that that was no long wait time between appointments. This was very convenient. I am happy with the care I get at OHSU.

    Doctor took the time to explain all the procedures she is going to do and then ask if we had questions. Answer all our questions and made both myself and my husband, feel I?m in good hands. Im so grateful that she is willing to do surgery on me to improve my life. I?m so thankful for her kindness, it been a nightmare for over 7yrs. Thank you Dr. Stroud very much.

  • Jul 23, 2019

    OHSU is the only hospital I go to for my special concerns. I go to my health provider for simple things [Name] cold etc) It’s because of the care and compassion I receive when I am a patient there. I am morbidly obsessed, and the staff at OHSU never make me feel ashamed. They have given me encouragement and walk with me on this journey to change.Great team of people! Thank you [Name]

  • Jul 20, 2019

    I met with the surgeon who is going to do my gastric sleeve surgery. We talked about what to expect and what is involved

  • Jul 13, 2019

    I think that my experience on the 11th was absolutely wonderful. Everyone that I talked to from before the procedure during the week, to during the procedure and afterwards were wonderful. I didn't see one person or hear one person that did something or said something that I didn't like. They were all very, very helpful and they were all very willing to help me get through it and I appreciated all of them and I appreciated the call the next morning to see if I was doing well and so I can't say one thing that they can do better. I just was so scared when I went in, but they helped me through it and I got through it and I think that my experience was a 10. It couldn't have been any better.

  • Jul 12, 2019

    Dr Stroud is wonderful. Its nice to meet a Dr who really cares!

  • Jul 08, 2019

    Andrea Stroud is great. She goes over all the details very thoroughly to make sure you understand and she doesn't talk down to you. She talks to you like you're a person. She's a great doctor. Thank you. Goodbye.

    She is AMAZING

  • May 28, 2019

    I was very happy with Dr. Stroud. She was personable and she listened to me and she talked to me as a person and not as a doctor to patient. I felt very comfortable with her and I found her very, very likable.

  • May 28, 2019

    Dr. Stroud was extremely informative. She gave me plenty of information to take home in reference to my surgery and the menus that I will need. I'm very happy with the her skills as a surgeon and her skills as a doctor.

  • May 20, 2019

    I found the doctor to be extremely honest forthright. caring understanding compassionate their eyes enough words to describe her demeanor her willingness to talk about her surgery and my expectations. I found everything to be very very very helpful and encouraging and there were some morning. So I understand and can make a very concerned inform consent.

  • Apr 15, 2019

    She was very knowledgeable, very nice, polite, and respectful and I would definitely recommend her to my friends. Thank you.

  • Apr 13, 2019

    I had a great experience with the provider but a bad experiance waiting.My appointment was at 1:50 and I was not seen until 3:15.If I had received a call from OHSU saying "your appointment will be an hour late can you make it?" then I would have left an hour later.There needs to be a better system in place to give the providers more time with each patient so they don't get behind OR a system to notify patients before they show up and wait for so long.I would have been much less frustrated had I been called 2 hours prior to be notified of the delay.I arrived at 1:30 for my appointment as asked to arrive early and sat for over an hour and a half.

  • Mar 16, 2019

    Other than waiting over 20 minutes it was amazing. Dr. Stroud and Dr. Lui (her fellow) were awesome.

  • Mar 10, 2019

    She is very good at making me feel like I am in good hands. I have seen many doctors lately and she ranks at the top of them.

  • Mar 09, 2019

    Procedure was very easy and staff was very attentive

  • Mar 05, 2019

    Very prompt and professional, but also very personable. Had reviewed and had case knowledge prior to visit. Great listening and seemed interested in what I had to say and answering any questions I had.

  • Mar 01, 2019

    The doctor was very thorough. She explained everything. She asked me my thoughts on several things and took those into consideration and I felt heard and listened to and we have very similar philosophies. So, I feel very comfortable that I have the right surgeon.

  • Feb 18, 2019

    Very informative, polite and open to our millions of questions!

  • Feb 12, 2019

    She was great the nurses were rude. The wait was 75 minutes past my appt time and no one told me that she was running late until 60 minutes after my appt. They just kept telling me I was next

  • Feb 05, 2019

    Provider listened and allowed time for questions

  • Jan 27, 2019

    I got there really early & they saw me early. Dr Stroud was super nice, answered all my questions. I feel a lot better about my surgery after talking with her. I feel i will be in great hands.

  • Jan 27, 2019

    It was excellent, and satisfied. Small thing is Im still not understanding one itty bitty question I asked her. She did tell me many times from her perspective. But I guess I'm still not understanding it. Not her fault. She's great, caring, looks out for the well being of her patients really well. Thank you for that.

  • Jan 15, 2019

    I like her candor yet caring way that she converses with me. She doesn’t ridicule or make me feel dumb. Her knowledge is obvious.

  • Jan 13, 2019

    Dr Stroud was running 30 minutes late due to the first patient showing up late but we got everything we needed to yLk about done in 1/2 hour. She is wonderful and super excited for surgery!!!

  • Dec 20, 2018

    Dr. Stroud is extremely kind and caring and it is clear she is invested in her patients health.

  • Nov 10, 2018

    She was very nice and attentive.

  • Nov 09, 2018

    My side effects from surgery should of been handled better. I was told a few times by the dr they would be back to see me and never happened. No bedside manor

  • Oct 28, 2018

    My appointment was scheduled for 9:40 AM. I wasn't roomed until after 10:20 AM (the MA was very kind, only nice things to say about her. I think her name was Joann. She normally works in plastics). By the time I saw the doctor, it was approximately 50 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. During the appointment, I asked for a prescription for injectable B12 (it's required to supplement after surgery). She said she would order a kit for B12 - as a pharmacist for OHSU I knew this kit wouldn't be covered by MODA and asked that she order vials of B12, which are covered and more cost effective. She continued as if she hadn't heard me and ordered the kit. Not surprisingly, the item she ordered wasn't covered and I wound up having to ask my PCP to prescribe the covered item in its place. I was very frustrated by the interaction. Her inability to acknowledge informed input from a patient (or perhaps, coworker, in some senses) makes me concerned for patients who aren't as knowledgeable about their insurance coverage/formulary. Perhaps the provider had/has done this to another patient who doesn't have an easily accessable PCP to represcribe the covered medication or who can?t afford the originally prescribed medication. Do they go without? Is their treatment delayed for days or longer because their provider couldn't accept simple feedback?

    Dr Stroud is amazing. Great bedside manner, very informative and personalizes your visit
