    Johanna Nesse is great! She takes her time listening to my concerns. She is very honest and knowledgeable.

  • Apr 22, 2019

    Yes my experience. Miss Johanna Nesse I was extremely professional and I can tell that she had my long term best interest at heart. She's very thorough and very courteous and very professional. I would highly recommend her to any that's it. Thank you.

  • Apr 22, 2019

    Johanna was very helpful, diagnosed the problem that I had... put in prescription order for me and, gave me advice on how to deal with the problem that I presented her. And really appreciated her attitude and her efficiency.

  • Apr 21, 2019

    She was very friendly, and informative. She was attentive and listened to my concerns. She was also thorough answering my questions.

  • Apr 20, 2019

    Johanna listened to what I had to say. She was professional and efficient.

  • Apr 17, 2019

    While they were running late, which happens, they all were really helpful, checked in on me, and did what they could in those circumstances.More importantly, I appreciate her approach about really diving in to make sure things are safe and sound. She’s great at being a patient advocate, which is refreshing. Versus a provider who wants to get you out the door as soon as possible... just a number. She is not like that that and I really do feel she’s my second pair of eyes!

  • Apr 16, 2019

    Johanna Nesse was very helpful and professional given the nature of my visit. I am extremely grateful for her assistance.

  • Apr 13, 2019

    I had to wait a long time past my appointment time to see this provider (over 30 mins) but when I finally did they were warm and understanding and thoughtful. I look forward to my next visit with them.

  • Apr 13, 2019

    She seemed to be very knowledgeable & caring. Great bedside manner.

  • Apr 12, 2019

    She is very patient and very caring. She is good at explaining conditions and next steps.

  • Apr 10, 2019

    Johanna Nesse FNP and Joe are always great.

  • Mar 05, 2019

    Our provider was very nice and kind but she was there was a little bit of conflict when it came down to a discussion about treatment that she was recommending and we really didn't get much time to talk it all out before she had to leave and I think that we both felt my wife felt like she was a little bit pushy with her recommendations and didn't give us a chance to discuss our concerns which we felt like were very relevant. And we felt like we really weren't being heard. So that was the only issue which happened towards the end of the visit left us with some*

  • Mar 04, 2019

    I would like to switch doctors. I feel uncomfortable with Dr. Nesse, as she seems to be distracted during our appointments and lacking in empathy. Also, during our last appointment, she agreed to switch my pharmacy to OHSU in the same building for convenience, but our appointment ended at 4:36pm, and that pharmacy closed at 4:30pm. It took me another 2 hours to get the prescription filled, and several trips to two other pharmacies AND back to OHSU, since their office was open until 7pm, but their phone line closed at 5pm. I usually have to wait quite a while to be seen for my scheduled appointments, which is not great, but this visit demonstrated a total lack of customer service.

  • Mar 04, 2019

    Dr.Nesse is friendly and positive. She listened to my concerns and advised me to the correct steps.

  • Mar 03, 2019

    She was a good listener and asked great questions that showed she was understanding what I was saying. At one point, when she started to examine me I made a statement about something we had not discussed. She felt it important enough she stopped and went to write it down in my notes and to ask more follow up questions before she completes the exam.

  • Feb 19, 2019

    Johanna was a wonderful doctor. I felt like she really listened to my issues and worked with me to create a treatment plan that really helped me and then when I did have the second appointment, she really touched base with me and I felt very comfortable and very heard with everything that she was doing. So I definitely recommend her. She's been wonderful and I look forward to continuing my care with her.

  • Feb 19, 2019

    I was very pleased with the service. Everybody was helpful and the process went smoothly and I would recommend Dr. Nesse.

  • Feb 14, 2019

    Johanna Ness has a great bedside manner and was very thorough and thoughtful. Her nurse was kind and I left thinking how happy I was I found such a great practice!

    Very thorough and understanding

  • Jan 28, 2019

    Yeah. Hi. Yes, I had a great experience and I think she is wonderful and she did well with what I need to get done and she was really good in handling things. So I am most likely highly to recommend her to any of my family and friends. So, thank you.

  • Jan 27, 2019

    I thought she is very thorough very personable and I had a great experience. She was very easy to deal with and talk to and she was right on top of everything that I had any questions about and I we actually like her a lot. I also Joe her assistant. He was very good giving me the vaccinations. Some people aren't very good at that but Joe was excellent. So I rate Johanna Nesse attend I'd like 10 in but it wouldn't take 10 said that's not a valid response. Anyway, thank you.

  • Jan 18, 2019

    Johanna was very personable yet professional. I felt like she truly cared about getting to know me and granted this was a first provider appointment. So this is the first time I met Johanna and she's becoming my new primary care physician and she was very interested in getting to know me not just on a physical level as per my health, but also want a mental health level a personal level. She wants to know what's going on. Why are things happening? Like I feel like Johanna is very good at seeing through the person that I am and how the things that are going out of my life might cause the symptoms that I have and as somebody with a lot of issues with my body and health I feel very much like I can trust Johanna and I am so looking forward to working with her. I can tell that she is going to be a *

    Johanna Neese FNP helps me every visit. This visit She diagnosed my work related shoulder injury and did the paper work even though she normaly does not do SAIF claims.

  • Dec 01, 2018

    It was awkward, because first of all she( Johanna Nesse ), didn't introduce herself, and we felt we were rushed because it was closing time. I got there at 5:30pm and my appointment was 6pm and was seen at 6:30pm. Anyway, I won't go back to her for sure.

    Johanna Nesse is a very good provider. She's very good at dealing with transgender care and is good with my pronoun, I would appreciate if she allowed me more time to talk instead of talking at me though. But other than that, she is a wonderful person and a wonderful doctor.
