    Great Doctor. He really gets to the bottom of things.

  • Dec 27, 2019

    I really appreciate having Dr. Natonson as my provider. He is friendly, takes me seriously, discusses options honestly, including when there is uncertainty and no clear answer. When I leave the appointment, I'm clear on the plan of action. The only downside is that it takes a VERY LONG TIME to schedule an appointment with him - I had to wait 10 weeks, and the scheduler wanted me to wait several months longer.

  • Dec 22, 2019

    Dr. Natonson is an excellent doctor, both technically and also on a personal level. He gives his patients all the time they need and is very insightful in what he has to say. I would highly recommend him to anybody.

  • Dec 21, 2019

  • Dec 19, 2019

    Dr. Natonson listened intently with my symptoms. He explained the reasons with the diagnosis and provided the treatment plan. He spoke clearly and easy to comprehend. He was efficient and did a thorough examination. He has superb customer service and input information into the EMR the same time. I felt very blessed to know Dr. Natonson.

  • Dec 19, 2019

    Dr. Natonson is the first doctor to sit down with me and explain exactly what I have and the steps we are going to take to try to control my condition. I am truly grateful he is my doctor.

  • Dec 18, 2019

    Dr. Natonson has been very helpful with his initial diagnosis of atypical migraines and how to treat and deal with those. We discussed the status of that and that the current level of medication is working.I completed a memory test with the results very good and comparable to last year.I appreciate his knowledge and experience, and he has helped me as I get older on specific steps that I can take to maintain good health.

  • Dec 18, 2019

    Dr. Natonson MD was energetic and enthusiastic. He provided efficient puzzles and tested my reactions in a way that would indicate which abilities were effective and not so effective. I hope that at some point He will help me be a more adjusted person who could be very normal in the future. I will be looking for the training that will improve my life so that I can be much better among the crowd.

    Dr. Natonson was terrific!The staff was helpful and friendly.One thing though; my preappointment paperwork advised, in the event of being lost, me to call a number which was answered by someone at the main OHSU facility, who had no idea of how to direct me to the OHSU location in Beaverton, adjacent to NIKE.

    Dr. Natonson was excellent! It was my first appointment with him and he really took his time to explain things, answer all my questions, and explain all of my options in an unbiased way so I felt like I was the ultimate decision-maker in next steps. It was also great having his medical student, Doug, there because as Dr. Natonson explained things to him, I learned a lot too. Doug was also kind, professional, and respectful.
