    Cat Scan scheduled and Dr. will call after seeing it and discuss the issues with me. It sounds like he has targeted the problem. I look forward to talking to him after the xrays.

    Dr. Rosenbaum was so kind and knowledgable. He understood my frustration about not knowing what was going on with my health and reassured me and listened. He is very thoughtful and understanding.

    Not only is Dr. Rosenbaum excellent, I find Dr. Choi to be great to work with also. As specialists they could easily be quirky or hard to communicate with or feel empathy from, but both are personable, warm and empathetic. I appreciate their work very much.

    It is a little early for me to be making judgments about my doctor.

  • Sep 06, 2017

    Dr Choi has been a top notch provider. always willing to answer all questions and concerns- and open to my suggestions, hears me out and talks through all of my options.

  • Aug 15, 2017

    Dr. Rosenbaum has been my primary doctor at OHSU for 20+ years. After a brief, unpleasant encounter with another provider at OHSU, Dr. Rosenbaum personally came back to being my attending physician (we had not been in contact several years due to the remission of my condition).

    I will be very sorry when the time comes for him to retire.
