    Pleasant and informative

  • Dec 11, 2019

    Dr Link is wonderful. I feel comfortable with him, my daughter feels comfortable with him. It feels like he is present and caring in the appointments we've had with him. Not our usual experience in other areas at OHSU, and we so appreciate him and his knowledge and care.

  • Oct 15, 2019

    The doctor was great at listening and willing to work through frustrations.

  • Sep 27, 2019

    Hi, Dr. Holger Link was amazing. He was not only did he take the amount of time that I felt like we needed. I feel like you really heard me and listened to my concern and really cared about my child. Something really special that he did but I don't can't think of another pediatrician that has done it is it was so important to him that my child left with a smile and you know, he really took care of my child above and beyond and yes he was there for his pulmonary issues, but I really felt like he consider my child as a whole person which to me was really, really amazing.

  • Sep 17, 2019

    He was very nice and also straight forward. He was very willing to answer any questions we had. He broke some stressful news to us fairly well, although it would have been better for us to have him let us know realistically how bad it was for our son with this particular news. We aren’t a typical family though. Most people would have been fine with how he explained everything though.

  • Aug 27, 2019

    He was concerned and helpful.

  • Aug 02, 2019

    Doctor was excellent, so different than all the other pediatric specialists we've visited recently.

  • Aug 02, 2019

    Pleasant and informative visit with Doctor link. Dr. Link showed much concern for my grandsons need and moved quickly to reach resolution for him

  • Jul 26, 2019

    For me it is an excellent experience, this is a specialist, I liked the explanation about my son's illness, what we were going to take away my doubts and he answered me October questions the answer and an excellent interpreter that I also had at my side that It was the one that had me translating and a great kindness and a great simplicity on their part and that that I would recommend 100% because I had the most attention that I needed.

  • Jul 13, 2019

    Great. Very thorough, answered all questions, spent time with us.

  • Jul 12, 2019

    My son has autism, and gets quite anxious. As soon as the Dr entered, he set my son at ease and connected with him smoothly by expressing an interest in the kitten video he had been watching. He had a wonderful demeanor that my son enjoyed, dispelling any concerns my son may have had going in. Also helpful was the quiet and calm set up for waiting area and exam room. Medical team was friendly and capable. Dr listened carefully, asked good questions and then spoke clearly and repeated himself in recap.

  • Jul 03, 2019

    Dr. Link is very receptive and informative to our questions and concerns. He took a lot of time with [Name] to make sure he got the full scope of what is going on.

  • Jun 10, 2019

    The Dr was great he put our daughters worries to ease. She was nervous to have the sleep study done and he assured her that it was going to be easy and painless.

    Dr. Link is always caring, very compassionate, informative and excellent in services he provides. Thank you.

  • Apr 05, 2019

    Dr. Link is knowledgable and competent, but more importantly he knows how to work with kids. My daughter is usually outgoing but was pretty shy at the beginning of her appointment, and he was able to set her at ease and by the end she was talking his ear off.

  • Mar 15, 2019

    Excellent. Excellent doctor. Thank you. Bye bye.

  • Mar 13, 2019

    Dr. Link is great. The only issue we have is it always takes about 3 months to get an appointment.

  • Feb 12, 2019

    My son is very reticent. He refuses to go to doctors usually, and when we came into this doctor, he was wonderful with him. He was caring, and kind, and thorough, and when we left my son agreed that he like this doctor and would see him again. That is a miracle, and I hope that he knows how much we appreciate the time and care that he took, and how much of the difference that made for my family, and my son.

  • Jan 25, 2019

    He listened to our concerns and was helpful

  • Jan 06, 2019

    The provider was great was helpful in trying to correct the scheduling mistake that happened since we are coming from over 2 hours away.

  • Jan 02, 2019

    He was flexible as we had a 9am appointment and with him it was at 1:50pm check in he took us like 2hours before so we didn't have to wait

  • Nov 21, 2018

    Dr Link really listened to our concerns and worked with us to come up with solutions. He was kind and compassionate with me and my child.

  • Nov 18, 2018

    Hi, this message is regarding Dr. Link. My daughter [Name] has seen him since she was about to two months old and considering that she has seen an array of specialists I can say with that most confident that Dr. Link is one of the best providers that we've encountered thus far in all of her medical care. He is great at explaining in great detail what his findings are, he takes time to answer questions that we might have regarding her condition and treatment and he is very caring and he listens and overall we found that it's just a great combination of excellent bed side manner.

  • Nov 17, 2018

    Dr. Link has always been very responsible, very caring, very attentive. He has done exactly what we needed when we needed and has been a good doctor for my son [Name].

  • Nov 10, 2018

    We arrived late for our appointment. We were met graciously by two receptionists. One checked with the doctor, and he said he could see us.The doctor was warm and friendly. He spent a lot of time listening to what was going on with [Name] He also helped in getting the sleep study moved from March to this weekend.He explained the various conditions that [Name] could have. He laid out very clearly next steps. I felt very informed.

  • Nov 08, 2018

    He is thorough, thoughtful and wonderful with our daughter. We so appreciate his time and feel like he cares about us and that we have his entire focus when we are there for visits.

  • Oct 12, 2018

    Both Doctor Link and the other Doctor working with him were both great and engaged very well with my son. They gave some helpful suggestions and information and I was appreciative of their knowledge. My son also thought they were "pretty great"!.
