    Erin was wonderful! Never felt rushed or like our questions werent valid!

  • Nov 15, 2019

    Informative, straight to the point.

  • Oct 27, 2019

    It was great.

  • Oct 26, 2019

    She gave our son information he wasn’t given from the first doctor he saw in our local community. We found out that surgical intervention that had been highly recommended wasn’t necessary at all.

  • Oct 19, 2019

    She was great with my son - explained things well, kind, engaging.

  • Oct 16, 2019

    very friendly - addressed our concerns and explained to our best understanding.

  • Oct 14, 2019

    this provider is hard to get ahold of, but this visit was fine

  • Oct 04, 2019

    Very informational! Even tho I didn’t have really any questions, she made sure to help me understand everything.

  • Sep 15, 2019

    Erin did a very nice job of synthesizing all of the information that she had from the various tests and questionnaires. She was very polite to me and my child and very receptive to the words and messages that I was giving her. Even though my daughter thankfully ended up without having anything wrong with her, that just normal development is occurring just this low rate. She was very kind and patient with us and did not treat us like we were wasting anyone's time. She provided very good options and was very understanding and she was very clear in her communication and supportive and again, she was just very kind and I really appreciated that.

  • Sep 11, 2019

    Aaron Anderson is wonderful. She's thorough, very personable. She ask before she touches the patient. Even though he is just 6 years old, she treats him like he should be treated. We've been very satisfied and seen her numerous times.

  • Sep 11, 2019

    The provider was very understanding and tried to make my son feel comfortable. She was also very thorough in her exam and took the time to answer all of my questions.

  • Sep 05, 2019

    This was a wonderful experience!! Staff was great! Worth the 4 hour travel time!!

  • Sep 04, 2019

    Everyone that we interacted with throughout the whole day was amazing, from the valet, information desk, check in desk, as well as the entire medical team. We appreciated everyones willingness to help out.Thank you!

  • Aug 29, 2019

    Mrs. Anderson and her staff. Were very helpful, very courteous and and encouraging and they helped us with a lot of things that we weren't informed of so, it was nice to have their help.

  • Aug 27, 2019

    The provider was great. The pre instructions were confusing and caused a lot of stress.

  • Aug 25, 2019

    Erin is courteous and kind. She is very thoroughly and we enjoy seeing her. She explains everything in layman's terms. She's a good provider.

  • Aug 15, 2019

    Dr. Vaz is so great!

  • Aug 14, 2019

    I felt she was very insensitive and disrespectful to my daughter during the genital exam. My daughter was very shy and Erin was way too brash and showed little concern for this sensitive situation.

  • Aug 03, 2019

    Very well attended very satisfied with your care towards my son.

  • Jul 18, 2019

    Erin Anderson is great. She's friendly and gentle and my baby loved her.

  • Jul 17, 2019

    We felt that Dr. Anderson was very thorough with ... with us. He spent lots of time explaining what was happening to [Name] and how to solve the problem and she was just really personable and really appreciated her.

  • Jul 12, 2019

    My son really enjoyed Dr. Anderson. She ... he really enjoyed the fact that she talked to him and not just to the parents and she answered his questions and made him feel really comfortable and he said she's the best doctor he'd ever seen. So I appreciate that.

  • Jun 20, 2019

    They're really nice, I will recommend to my friend's.

  • Jun 19, 2019

    Erin was amazing. Spent quality time with us on our daughters condition, how we got to this point, how to improve her condition, and what the future could be or not be. She was friendly and very professional in dealing with my daughter who has alot of anxiety about needles. Erin talked her through it, explained the process, and applied cream to numb the area in order to reduce any pain or discomfort from the needle prick. Erin exceeded our expectations. Well done.

  • Jun 19, 2019

    The patient care was excellent. My appointment with my sons doctor was great, she made sure to explain everything and would always ask if we had any questions.

  • Jun 06, 2019

    Erin was thorough and very honest with us about our son. I appreciated her bluntness when it came to his options and what she thought was best at this time for him. So thankful for OHSU and their team - we are incredibly blessed to have them help our little [Name]

  • Jun 05, 2019

    Very likely.

  • May 31, 2019

    Erin was great. She was patient with my 3 year old son. She performed a thorough exam and very clearly explained the situation to us and next steps.

  • May 23, 2019

    We see Erin yearly (or about yearly) yesterday's appointment was just with an ultrasound of our daughter's bladder and kidneys. Erin is very easy to talk to and always makes us feel comfortable with any questions we have. Our daughter enjoys her appointments with Erin and also is comfortable with her.

  • May 17, 2019

    They are very friendly and honest. Make my family feel comfortable and was very nice to my son.

  • May 02, 2019

    We have five appointments, an hour each. NO provider takes up the entire hour. We spend most of our time sitting in a stuffy, closed room and told to 'sit tight.' Up to 45 mins between visits. This is not good for children in general, much less those on the ASD Spectrum who grown bored very quickly.

  • Apr 05, 2019

    Erin was so amazing and super understanding and knowledgeable as well as every every staff member we came across is just incredible and I was blown away by how awesome experience was.

  • Mar 22, 2019

    We like ,because the nurse and a doctor, they are realy nice they answer your questions.

  • Mar 11, 2019

    Very friendly and knowledgeable

  • Feb 06, 2019

    It was a great visit

  • Feb 01, 2019

    Erin was amazing. She made my daughter feel very comfortable, even though it was not a comfortable situation. She's an awesome doctor.

  • Jan 31, 2019

    Erin was kind, easy to understand, and clear in her explanation of her treatment plans. She immediately engaged with my child and spoke to all of us, rather than leaving my daughter out of her own medical decisions. She was realistic in setting expectations for future treatments and appeared invested in her improving.

  • Jan 14, 2019

    Erin Anderson really helped make a stressful procedure for my daughter a lot less stressful. I was confident in her skills, and she reassured me and walked me through everything she was doing during my daughter's urodynamic testing. Thanks a lot.

  • Jan 05, 2019

    We arrived late due to traffic in a long commute. They still fit us in for an apt very quickly.

  • Dec 19, 2018

    She was very nice and spoke with my son directly a lot.

  • Dec 01, 2018

    Provider was very professional, clear and descriptive, personable and knowledgeable.

  • Nov 30, 2018

    All staff and doctors were very helpful throughout the day.

  • Nov 11, 2018

    Well they were so nice and taking care of my son. I will actually provide this person in the future. Thank you.

  • Nov 10, 2018

    Great people took careful care of my anxious child's complicated medical needs. However, urodynamic test is long & traumatic & not having a screen option is UNREASONABLE for a child with probes in their anus & bladder! Luckily a staff person let us use thier personal one, saved the day!! Otherwise rescheduling & full sedation would have been necessary at HIGHER risk to my child & not giving best images to dr.

  • Nov 03, 2018

    Erin was great, very personable and answered all of my questions. It was a good informative visit.

  • Oct 27, 2018

    Our experience with Erin is always brief but pleasant. She is very efficient, communicated clearly, and is easy to talk to.

  • Sep 27, 2018

    She was very nice, this was just a test being done so we did not find out anything

  • Sep 08, 2018

    She seems to have been well prepared in reviewing the past medical records and lab results. It was nice that she already knew what had been done up until then.
