Patient Comments

    Knows what she is doing.

  • Aug 01, 2019

    Well, it took me over 2 hours for my one check up. And I was I thought that was quite a long time and after seeing the doctor for probably 10 minutes and waiting for 2 hours was a little extreme as far as I was concerned. Anyway, that's all.

  • Jul 31, 2019

    My experience with Dr. Ing was great, as always.

  • Jul 30, 2019

    I was able to get right in and have my eye issue resolved the same day

  • Jul 23, 2019

    Thorough, focused, with good forward plan.

  • Jul 23, 2019

    Attentive and answered all of my questions!

  • Jul 23, 2019

    Yes, I waited 2 hours to get in to see her. But once I was in there I was angry kind of restless because I had a person waiting so to take me home, but I didn't give her a half of a chance, because I was in a hurry. So I want to try again. Anyhow, I think she was doing the best she could.

  • Jul 12, 2019

    on time, very efficient

  • Jul 11, 2019

    Dr Ing is very knowledgeable and monitors changes closely. I had a lovely resident examine my eyes. He used a piece of equipment that is was unfamiliar with. He used it a long time. I had a lot of discomfort afterwards and almost had to cancel a right posterior capsulotomy later in the day with another provider. The provider said my eyes were very irritated. They are still uncomfortable and reddened today.

  • Jul 11, 2019

    pleasant and competent

  • Jul 11, 2019

    Great experience. Dr. Ing is amazing, very professional. I can highly recommend Dr. Ing to my friends or anybody.

  • Jul 10, 2019

    Yes, I would like to say that Eliesa Ing is a very, very good doctor, very professional. The operation that she did on my eye I was just very happy with. I would recommend her to anyone, anytime. Thank you.

  • Jul 09, 2019

    Yeah, I went there and I had an appointment at, like, I think 10:15. I waited, I didn't get in til 12 o'clock to the appointment to see my doctor. I think that's way too long.

  • Jul 04, 2019

    Dr. Ing is awesome!! Very careful and caring.

  • Jul 04, 2019

    OSHU and Dr Ing continue to provide me with excellent care. I have confidence in her.

  • Jul 02, 2019

    Efficient, thoughtful, forthright

  • Jul 02, 2019

    Dr. Ing is both personable and competent. I very happy to have her for my provider and would recommend her without reservations to anyone.

  • Jun 29, 2019

    Everyone was so helpful & curteous, we felt very comfortable.

  • Jun 29, 2019

    Very professional

  • Jun 28, 2019

    When I came in for my glaucoma testing they were very thorough more thorough than I've probably ever had before as far as testing for glaucoma. They explained everything they were doing and kind of why they were doing it and they me feel very comfortable and not at all concerned as I was when I went in.

  • Jun 28, 2019

    This was my husband's appointment and I am speaking for him. But he waited for well over an hour once he drove down there to even see the doctor. And so that is the reason you were voted a 6. Thank you.

  • Jun 28, 2019

    I was pleased. Thank you.

  • Jun 22, 2019

    Dr. lig was very helpful and explain to every that was going to be done to my eye I had my right eye. I found other stuff was very helpful.

  • Jun 20, 2019

    Recently had an eye surgery with Dr's Morrison and Ing. They did an excellent and careful job.

  • Jun 18, 2019

    too long of wait time

  • Jun 18, 2019

    I had to wait an hour and a half before I was able to see the provider. My appointment was at 11 a.m. And I got to see the provider at 12:30 p.m.

  • Jun 18, 2019

    Hi, my name is [Name]. My provider was very warm. She was very informative. She was concerned about my health. I felt as though all my needs are being met. We discussed a number of things that was bothering me about my health and she assured me that she was on top of everything. You know, she ordered tests on tests on tests to make sure everything was right. I was extremely comfortable with her and I just can't think of anything else to say, but but I was very pleased and and I thank god for for everybody that works at Oregon Health and Sciences and all the doctors in putting thousands of hours of research. I really do appreciate it. And you know, we appreciate their help and what they all do for the community, which this year has changed my outlook on life a lot better.

  • Jun 13, 2019

    Very frustrating that this provider is always running very late. I waited an hour and a half. I always seem to wait at least an hour.

  • Jun 13, 2019

    I was pleased with the visit the, entire visit, from the receptionist, to the tech, to the residents, to the doctor itself and I would recommend OHSU to everyone. Thank you for the survey.

  • Jun 12, 2019

    She knows her craft. Good advice.

  • Jun 11, 2019

    She was kind, informative, easy to understand

  • Jun 07, 2019

    Good visit

  • Jun 06, 2019

    This is just to say that my eye, the one with glaucoma in it, was sore that night until the next morning. It didn't come out of the dilation kind of haze, you know, but it's okay now.

  • Jun 04, 2019

    Professional, knowledgable

  • May 31, 2019

    I have recently started seeing this provider. she is ok so far.

  • May 21, 2019

    First time meeting her. She is very nice

  • May 21, 2019

    Dr.Ing is personable and unusually competent. I trust her completely.

  • May 16, 2019

    Value her expertise.

  • May 16, 2019

    This is my first visit with this provider having been with another provider for many many years who retired so it's difficult for me to say whether I would recommend her. However, I understand that the doctors are allowed 10 minutes with a patient and given that this was my first time visiting her. I felt that that was nowhere enough time for that kind of visit she seems quite rushed. And so that's my comment. I'm not happy with the fact that doctors are just given 10 minutes to meet with patient.

  • May 15, 2019

    This was my first visit with Dr. ing. She was very frustrated when trying to pull up the documentation and films on my chart for my consult. She was dealing with a new computer system that had been introduced be fore adequate time for training, She was very apologetic and I understood her frustration. She was an hour behind in appt. I do not fault her but management for putting her in this situatation. The visit went well overall with understanding plan of care.

  • May 14, 2019

    This was my first visit with her as my new doctor. Didn’t feel at all like there was any interest in me or my eye issues. VERY VERY LATE, rushed, no conversation what so ever.Hope this was just an isolated incident.

  • May 14, 2019

    She is a nice person, and explains things well, but my appt was at 2:40 and she met me at 4 pm. An hour and a half late is not a good way to meet a patient.

  • May 14, 2019

    Dr. Ing was very very helpful. She was willing to answer my questions. She was such a good listener. She explained everything. She answered all my concerns. I was asking her about my glaucoma and what kind of cataract surgery that I would like to have and gosh, I found her to be very friendly, warm, interested and caring and so competent and knowledgeable, so she was great. Thank you.

  • May 02, 2019

    Good - the doctor explained what she was doing and answered my questions. She was helpful with referral.

  • May 01, 2019

    It has got much better after we had a talk about what I need.Feel bad, they seem to be understaffed and stressed.

  • Apr 13, 2019

    I felt very confident with Dr. Ing's level of expertise. I also talked at her support staff that worked with her was very complimentary to her interaction with patients I felt confident and asking Dr. Ing questions, and she took the time to answer my question without feeling at all rushed I have a great deal of confidence in her level of expertise and look forward to coming back to her.

  • Apr 11, 2019

    Felt very rushed. Not much time spent discussing history with new Dr.

  • Apr 11, 2019

    Dr. Ing performed a trabeculectomy on my left eye in April of 2018. I trust her expertise and was confident that she would do the best possible job on this right eye trabeculectomy this year.

  • Apr 11, 2019

    Hi, Dr. Ing, I guess, is a good surgeon, but she's not real good with people. She doesn't and listen to you very much and I'd just as soon go to someone who listened to me and respected what I have to say more than she does. That's all.
