    Within the last two months, OHSU has eased the registration process by employing at least three additional employees. Dr. Cetnar and the nurses giving injections were very helpful and timely. The drawing of blood, at the first floor location, took a little more time than was desirable but didn't have a lengthy wait.

    I was very well informed with my visit and I felt very cared about.

  • Jun 28, 2019

  • Jun 28, 2019

    Even though I was late because of a long drive from Central Oregon into OHSU the doctor made accommodations for me being tardy and still greeted me, still managed to see me at the end of his schedule. Was very courteous and well, I apologize. He was very acceptance of that very very professional. As we discussed sometimes the medical career, the medical field, I'm sorry, does not have very good record in the business industry of communication. Very good communication between doctor and patient here. I was very pleased. That's all. Thank you.
