    I feel very privileged to that. We have Dr. Jaboin at OHSU. He said brilliant, excellent, doctor and he's an incredible listener, very personal and takes time. I've had several sessions with him and each time he makes you very comfortable to ask what you need to ask you very thorough and he's very knowledgeable. He knew many many other doctors that do what he does across the country that he also listen to and he's at 10.

  • Dec 23, 2018

    Dr Jaboin is great, incredibly genuine, communicates well and inspires confidence. The technicians who worked with me on the 20 th and 21 st, Ramon and Mona Were great. However I am very disappointed with the schedule process and my delay in getting treatment.

  • Dec 09, 2018

    Seems like it took a long time for him to get into the office. We sat there for quite a while waiting.

  • Dec 02, 2018

    Yes, I was very impressed. I liked the interview very much with her. I'm looking forward to my next meeting. This is a very knowledgeable person and very competent. I was very happy. Thank you.

  • Nov 25, 2018

    Yes, I had to be transferred over from the VA to the hospital. I was attended to and taken care of very quickly, very seldom there do I ever have to wait and wait. but that's you know the travel time between Vancouver and there, but now I feel great about you guys up there. Thank you.

  • Nov 15, 2018

    I really liked my provider. I didn't like that I had a 90 minute wait.

  • Nov 14, 2018

    He?s very personable and informed

  • Nov 11, 2018

    Well, this guy sounded like he knew exactly what he was talking about, and I'd be glad to have him do whatever we got to do. And let's hope everything turns out okay. Fine.

  • Nov 10, 2018

    Dr. jerry and staff were great and left feeling relaxed and secure knowing who I would have treating me.

    First time visit with Dr Jaboin. Very comfortable talking to him. Very personable.

  • Nov 03, 2018

    They seemed pleased and positive that they could help me

  • Nov 02, 2018

    Both Dr. Jaboin and Dr. Brown were extremely thorough, patient, and infused our time together with humor and insight. We had expected to spend about half an hour, and and they gave us closer to an hour and a half of their valuable time. I was particularly impressed with their willingness and, indeed, eagerness to review my condition with their colleagues from other departments and specialties. I feel confident that whatever treatment program I undertake will be a result of careful consideration of all possibilities.

  • Oct 27, 2018

    I have been coming to OHSU since 2010 being treated for prostate cancer and and have received the best care I could have ever been given.I am blessed to be under the care of OHSU and the Portland VA Hospital.

  • Oct 27, 2018

    All the doctors and the staff at OHSU were truly fantastic!!!!!I could not be happier!!!Blessings to you all!

  • Oct 26, 2018

    There are very friendly, and knowledgeable,professional. They make me feel better about the treatment I will receive.

  • Oct 20, 2018

    He spent so much time with me. He answered every question I had and then some. His enthusiasm was obvious. I needed a note to allow me to return to work and most of the people who would typically write the note were out. When I told Dr. Jaboin that I was worried that putting it off would delay my return to work, he left and wrote a note. He answered many questions that I thought might be outside the scope of his role. I felt very cared for. His resident was very informative, friendly, and also very knowledgeable and helpful.

  • Oct 12, 2018

    Took time to apologize for and discuss with us a number of serious, frequent, and repeatedly-occurring communication missteps, mistakes, miscues within the Radiation Medicine department. The group is in the midst of trying to identify the areas and processes in which mistakes have been made and then institute positive changes. OHSU's previous record in stellar care and patient communications holds hope that such high professional standards can once again become routine and normal at some point. The team admits there is much work to be done, has apologized to patients, and has asked for time to make positive changes. The earnestness and sincerity to do so is apparent; steps taken from here out will measure actual progress made.

  • Oct 01, 2018

    Very caring individual.

  • Sep 27, 2018

    Dr Jaboin and Dr Brown were very nice and listened to what I had to say and I appreciated that very much. I feel it is very important that you have a good relationship with your doctors while you are in treatment.
