    OHSU has a standard of patient awareness that is unlike any other place I have been before. From the front desk to the Dr on duty they exhibit excellent customer service skills as well as a genuine caring and thoughtful attitude towards their patients. I have been made to feel more that comfortable and at ease with a new procedure that I was a little leary of trying. They have the best bedside manner or organization I have had the privilege of receiving care from. A+ in my book all the way.

  • Nov 14, 2018

    I couldn't be happier with treatment as in Dr. Holland's. He's a terrific person, is really good informing me on what's going on in my condition, how things are going, what to expect, answered every question. He looked... it looked good the way he was mentoring the resident and the med student who were with him. I couldn't be happier than with Dr. Holland. What am I supposed to push it?
