    Dr. Madison provided me with a huge volume of information and answered all my questions and even a few I didn't think to ask. He thoroughly explained my choices in my situation and expected outcomes but was up front that nothing comes with written guarantees when it comes to you and cancer. We were able to set a course of action and explained why the time frame was necessary and how it was governed by how I was healing. Very good job. I know there is more to learn but I feel less anxiety. Thank you!

    I've been with the doctor for 5 years and I am really very happy with him because he is an excellent doctor. When I arrive, I arrive very exhausted and sad and when I leave everything he checks for me and the medicines he gives me I go perfectly well. I give him a 10.

    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.

    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

    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.
