    I am always impressed with the efficiency of OHSU

    I loved, very happy with Andy Chen. I, I'm prejudiced, I'm in remission from cancer. I didn't die. So I think he's the greatest thing ever. If I had to search and search and search and try and come up with something, when I left after my appointment, needed to schedule another appointment in four months I had to go all over the place and finally leave and call it in, 'cause there's nobody up there all the ones in them warrens, in the rabbit warren of a maze to find all these different sign in places. They put me all over the place, even had one person tell me Andy Chen wasn't there that day 5 minutes after I walked out of the room with him. So that was the only thing I have problem with it all, and it wasn't a problem that mattered.. So thank you for you guys giving me great service. Bye.

    Dr. Chen is very thorough but there was quite a bit of discrepancies about when I needed lodging, etc. Dr. Chen is all business and not personable.

  • Dec 15, 2018

    Dr. Chen was very very thorough doctor. Really appreciated his honesty, his forwardness, his directness, his accuracy. All of his care team was extremely good. I can't say anything but good about him. I'm the only thing that caught me a little off guard was some of the bed side manner with Dr. Chen in regard to that bluntness but it was always accurate and it was always necessary information to be passed along.

  • Dec 08, 2018

    Dr. Chen is knowledgeable about this disease and his focus is there. As far as symptoms from the disease, in referred to other providers which is a bit frustrating.

    Dr. Chen is both personable and very direct. He has worked hard to understand my particular disease and has been successful with several treatment options. I don't think that I could be treated as well by anyone else and I am eternally grateful.

    Dr Andy Chen is a very knowledgeable Dr. He has taken very good care of me and has followed up on my overall health.

  • Aug 01, 2018

    I just want to say, I don't believe there is anything better experience. My experience with Dr. Chin, I have found him to be honest, straight forward and a very, very good doctor. The crew and people who surround him are excellent. I don't understand this survey, you can't improve anything, it is the best. You are a best service in all processes. I've been in the hospital there, I've visited a doctor and it has always been positive, and I'm still alive, so I'm very much in favor of you guys.

  • Aug 01, 2018

    Dr. Chen is a bit uncomfortable in a one on one situation. Not sure how you would fix it. His skills are great.
