Patient Comments

    Dr Niak presented my options in a professional and friendly manner. I appreciate that she and the team of health professionals she works with came up with such a less invasive but still effective option for me.

  • Dec 07, 2018

    Found her approachable, knowledgable and able to explain my situation clearly.

  • Dec 03, 2018

    I really appreciated the time that Dr. Naik spent to go over the operation and situation with me, and to make me feel more comfortable with this procedure, and that is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Yes, good morning, Dr. Naik was extremely professional. She was very on the spot to the point of not having a full mastectomy, with giving excellent reason on why not to and to just a stick with a lumpectomy, even if I tested positive for the gene. She was very reassuring she was very confident. She was so very helpful with myself, and not only myself but two girlfriends that had her previous in the last 5 months. I was very satisfied, completely still looking forward to seeing her again for a follow up, and I have no unhappiness about being at OHSU. Everyone and all the staff, especially the surgeon, was just absolutely wonderful. And very delightful to be there everybody and did everything they possibly could and then some to be as helpful and be as positive as they possibly could. So just wanted to say thank you to *
