    Very through Takes time to answer questions and clearly explain

  • Jul 14, 2019

    I was very impressed with Dr. Madison. He answered a lot of questions. He gave us a lot of information. I felt more comfortable about what I had came to him for and satisfied then I had for a long time. He gave us very good information. His attitude was good. He was friendly and I really liked him.

  • Jul 13, 2019

    Extremely informative. Spoke to me in a way I could understand and very thorough. I never felt rushed or undermined. He set appointments and orders on the spot.These may seem like small things and should be the case with every provider, but I felt like Dr Madison went above and beyond. I left feeling confident in my diagnosis and continued care. He is the first Dr to take the time to completely explain my MTC. It was exactly what I needed at this appointment.

  • Jul 12, 2019

    Dr. Madison, explained thoroughly, the findings on my tests, and gave me next step options.

I feel like he is genuinely concerned about my quality of life.

    Dr. Madison was most genial and informative. I very much appreciate his medical counsel, particularly as he is cautious not to prescribe in haste and repent at leisure.

  • Jul 02, 2019

    As a newcomer to Oregon with a 43-year history of thyroid/parathyroid issues and 3 previous surgeries, I was truly astounded with Dr. Madison's thorough and insightful grasp of my long medical record and his well-reasoned plan for moving forward. Apprehensive about finding new doctors here, I appreciated so much his willingness to take the considerable time needed to answer my questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. Both my husband and I felt he was interacting with us, not the computer screen, which is so often the case these days.

  • Jun 29, 2019

    For me she's an excellent doctor.

    Pleasant, reaffirming, and informative.

  • Jun 27, 2019

    Dr Madison is awesome! He’s always very knowledgeable and takes the time to answer/address things thoroughly. I like his frankness, practicality, and expertise. I wish he would have hours in the Beaverton clinic or the Hill though. I do not like the South Waterfront location. It’s difficult to get to and the parking is a total zoo! I get more stress going there than any other location and in general, avoid going there if it can be helped.

And he's not afraid to answer questions and he would tell you exactly what he wants you to know because he says that the way he's got to do it to be straight with his patients. That's why he's such a good doctor.

    He has made an incredible difference in my life and health. He diagnosed a condition for which I needed surgery (hyperparathyroidism) about 1.5 years ago. Prior to the surgery my life was miserable; plagued with fatigue and loss of muscle strength. I could barely walk a single city block without needing to stop and rest my muscles. In addition to the hyperparathyroidism I also have MS so it is unclear exactly what was affecting what but now I have my life back! Thank you! He also managed by thyroid medication, making adjustments that improved my health and well being. He is intelligent, communicates well with patients, and takes his time to explain complex interactions so illusive in endocrinology. This allows me to be an informed patient to know how to take control of my health.
