Patient Comments

  • Nov 09, 2018

    He was good, he didn't rush, he listened, he had really good bed side manners.

  • Nov 09, 2018

    I was made to feel at ease. The Doctor provided dialog. He recognized my limitations and made a concerted effort to accommodate me.

  • Nov 06, 2018

    Dr. Ensrud was pleasant, efficient, attentive, and extremely knowledgeable. His discussion was understandable and patient-oriented.

  • Nov 02, 2018

    I thought the doctor was well briefed before he met me and it was an initial meeting and that is not always the case with doctors, so I was impressed by that. He was articulate. I didn't have to go through a lengthy description of the situation because he prepped himself prior to the meeting. So, we got more done than would normally take place in an initial meeting. He was very personable, clearly very knowledgeable and which is not always the case, respectful and a good listener, which is difficult to do. Given this day and age, doctors have to type, think, listen and extrapolate simultaneously, a difficult ask for anyone.
