    I was very impressed with the with both Francis fan the the resident and with Dr. Hendrikson particularly in the way that they not only listened. But they heard that is something that often does not happen. And I I did say to Francis fan nice recap because he just very distinctly put together what I have just spent 15 minutes telling him. That was impressive. I liked it a lot. I'll be back. Bye.

    Dr. Henrikson is always a pleasure to see. He takes the time you need to listen and ask your questions. He is compassionate and relaxed, easing the nerves you may have coming into the visit. He made sure to ask me 3 times if there were any other concerns or needs he could help me with. He is knowledgeable and has great delivery.

    Dr. Hendrikson is outstanding. I am grateful I am under his care. He is direct and clear about every aspect of my care and situation. I have great confidence in him and his team.

  • May 25, 2019

    Very good, as usual

  • May 24, 2019

    He told me my blood thinner would be ready right after my surgery. It was never ordered! I'm in permanent atrial fibrillation and run the risk of blood clots! At 930 PM it still was not ordered! I feel that he was very unprofessional and incompetent. So, no I will not give him a good review and will share this experience with my ICD group.

  • May 23, 2019

    Dr. Henriksen added me on at short notice to his busy schedule and helped to cure me of my heart rhythm disturbance. I am most grateful for his timely care and expertise.

  • May 22, 2019

    Dr. Hendrikson and his team are not only experts in their field but compassionate people who communicate well. I trust him.

  • May 19, 2019

    So I was very happy with Dr. Henrikson when I met him and my experience in the office was excellent. However, my experience in getting an appointment was terrible and staff that I dealt with in going through the process of getting an appointment I thought was very inconsiderate, very unresponsive, and they caused a substantial delay in my ability to get an appointment, which I had been advised was an urgent necessity. Thank you.

  • May 19, 2019

    It is always a pleasure seeing this provider at OHSU

  • May 18, 2019

    Dr. Henricksen and his team were very professional and competent! Their rapid assessment of my particular circumstances greatly enhanced my ultimate outcome. His manner was caring and engaging. He followed thru upon my condition both early in the morning and late in the evening while I was in the hospital.

  • May 17, 2019

  • Apr 16, 2019

    Dr. Henrikson has been my electrophysiologists for About 4 years. He has consistently provided me with excellent care, monitoring my bradycardia, a-fib, tachycardia, not to mention my anxiety for which he recommended OHSU’s breath-by-breath workshops which have helped me control that anxiety and are now a part of my weekly routine. Several weeks ago, I experienced a bout of tachycardia during and after a sinus polyp surgery. Two of Dr. Henrikson’s colleagues visited to shock my heart back into rhythm and advocated that I have an SVT ablation. Later in the week I fainted from a vasovagal reaction and ended up in the OHSU ER,staying overnight in managed care. I asked for an ablation ASAP and was able to schedule one for yesterday, 4/15. Dr. Henrikson performed the procedure, discovering fluttering heartbeats and zapping them as well as those for tachycardia. He was most professional and positive. His colleague, Dr. Miller, also visited me. I deeply appreciate the coordination of these two incidents and the procedure. I am healthier and happier because of the work done by Dr. Henrikson and associates.

  • Apr 12, 2019

    I have been to him before and I value his opinion and his thoroughness in his examination and explanation on what is going on with my heart condition. Very friendly and courteous.

  • Apr 08, 2019

    Yearly check up...Dr Henrickson and his Fellow student was very involved...both had reviewed my history and truly was interested! They listened...answered all questions I had & showed empathy & sincerity toward me.

  • Apr 06, 2019

     [Name] I can't say enough good things about him. He was straight forward, really knowledgeable, paid a lot of attention to what I said, and I was very impressed and...and I would highly recommend them to anybody. He's probably the best cardiologist I've ever had, and I've had heart problems for 20 years. Anyway. Thank you very much.

  • Apr 05, 2019

    He and his inpatient PA are clear, responsive, comprehensive,thoughtful, and demonstrate a high expression of professionalism. I have great confidence in them as a result.

  • Apr 04, 2019

    Very thorough and gentle in her exams. A credit to cardiology at OHSU

  • Mar 30, 2019

    My relationship with Dr. Henrikson is terrific. I'm pleased to be a patient of his and I deeply appreciate the clinical team in cardiology that works through Dr. Henrikson.

  • Mar 24, 2019

    This was just to check on a defibrillator that was implanted and to check the wound. Some minor adjustments were made and I am very happy with my visit as everyone was on time.

  • Mar 10, 2019

    At first contact, it was with an intern (another person, not Dr Henrikson): he was pleasant and asked questions. Then, he stepped out to talk with the Doc. They both came in to talk with me and my questions were answered. I am in the 'wait and see' area of my treatment. Doc was helpful, engaged, pleasant, and in a good mood (as they both were).

  • Mar 09, 2019

    Dr. Henrikson was empathetic and considerate in terms of providing care that worked best for me and my family. He always made sure I was comfortable with what was going on, and had great communication.

  • Mar 02, 2019

    Dr Henrikson explained afib in detail and how to manage it.

  • Feb 27, 2019

    I appreciate the care and compassion he showed me. He took the time to explain everything to me and made sure I was comfortable with the procedure.

  • Feb 18, 2019

    The entire experience was outstanding. It was obviously something I've never gone through before. Dr. Henrikson and his staff were outstanding in the way that they kept me up to date on everything that was going to be done, and then check in on me after the procedure was completed. Definitely would recommend OHSU to friends and family.

  • Feb 17, 2019

    My experience with Dr. Henrickson was a 10 it was absolutely wonderful and I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you.

  • Feb 16, 2019

    Dr. Henrickson was scheduled to perform my procedure on February 11th, but he called me the day before and said he was sick, and he would not be performing the procedure, but would be having one of his colleagues do it instead or I could reschedule. I chose to go forward with a different doctor and I didn't see Dr. Henrickson on the 11th at all. Wisely he was staying home and getting well, bye.
