Patient Comments

  • Dec 19, 2019

    He was great at explaining the procedure

  • Dec 04, 2019

    I have seen Dr Ensrud several times. I was hoping to be able to get injections in both hips rather Than having to wait two weeks for such an appointment. I am no longer able to drive and coming to Beaverton is a burden. Plus I now will have two more weeks when my sleep is affected and my activity curtailed.

  • Nov 27, 2019

    He was professional, thorough, and helpful. I need a follow-up test and he was willing to do it the next day.

  • Nov 27, 2019

    Patient-centered and gave good explanations, which I appreciate.

  • Nov 26, 2019

    The doctor was very excellent at explaining what he was going to do. Good friendly, pleasant attitude. He let me know step by step what he was doing and that it might hurt so I could be prepared for the ouch. He did a great job.

  • Nov 20, 2019

    I am very, very impressed with Dr. Ensrud, and I am not easily impressed. His thorough exam and meticulous attention to ALL the details of my symptoms resulted in a successful diagnosis of my problem. I have had this problem for over 10 years, over the course of which I had been seen by two other neurologists, neither of which was able to come up with a plausible diagnosis. Dr. Ensrud efficiently figured out a problem that was both subtle and challenging. Communication and explanations were outstanding throughout my experience.

  • Nov 13, 2019

    The doctor was very nice and through. He answered all my questions patiently. I felt that he was genuinely interested and gave me further suggestions

  • Nov 10, 2019

    Very very thorough, knows his stuff and what he's doing, and takes the time to let you know what's going to happen and what's going on, and like I said he's very very thorough, very courteous, and personality is perfect.

  • Nov 07, 2019

    Dr Ensrud was delightful.He took extra time after the procedure to explain everything to us and answer all of our questions. He was completely approachable and made us feel very comfortable while we were talking.

  • Nov 05, 2019

    I have been telling Drs that I had a problem with the back of my knee (upper calf) for a long time. Nobody would really listen to me except Dr Ensrud. He found something on the back of my leg and has ordered an MRI. hopefully we can get this pain figured out!

  • Oct 24, 2019

    Dr Ensrud, was on time and had great bed side manner. It was not a comfortable procedure and he showed compassion and care. He did his best to make a very unpleasant procedure tolerable. He shared with me that he does the procedures on himself as a demonstration for his students. I think that is a very noble act!

    The doctor was very kind but in efficient and doing my left arm nerve tests, even this was not his scheduled patient time. — Error by the scheduling department. He did not have a specific diagnosis, but some of the numbness and in my left hand and arm looked a lot like possible carpal tunnel and gave a hand brace to try for the next 2 1/2 weeks before I meet with my Back Surgeon, Dr. Yoo.

  • Aug 25, 2019
